Last week I was invited by Keraton at the Plaza to break my fasting at their signature buffet restaurant, Bengawan. This was my very first experience to visit Keraton at the Plaza after hearing the buzzing about this luxury hotel at the prestigious office tower, The Plaza, Thamrin. It is indeed a private and luxury hotel, ever since I stepped my feet on their private access (the door can only be accessed from Plaza Indonesia), I could feel an intimate and warm ambience there. The whole design of the hotel is so rich with Indonesian culture especially Javanese luxury with modern interpretation. Well, that's my short insight about this hotel since I'm not gonna tell you more about them coz I'm here for their restaurant *unless someday I could try their luxury rooms hihihi...
Keraton at The Plaza locating their signature restaurant at the 7th floor with spectacular views of Jakarta. They have two dining areas, indoor and outdoor both offers a modern contemporary and elegant decor. In the night, the ambience is warmer with a dim light and calming backsound. The signature cuisine offered here is Mexican cuisine with delectable array of starters such as soup and salad, main course such as grilled Quesadilla, Tacos, Burritos, to the sumptuous desserts. However, in this holy Ramadhan, they also provides an array of Middle-Eastern and Indonesian cuisine also.
Here's some sneek peek of my dinner at Bengawan that night. Enjoy!
*Sandwich at appetizer section
*Turkey salad, their turkey was sooo juicy and tender. super love it!
*Appetizer section, Bengawan has more than 5 variations of salad and canapes
*Indonesian section, they have choices of bakmi and main course such as Beef Curry, Chicken Rica-rica, etc. Oh they also have Indonesian fritters such as Bakwan, Tempe Mendoan and other 'gorengan' which very familiar for Indonesian as a snack for break fast,
*Middle-Eastern sections, find their best Beef Shawarma and delightful Chicken Tagine for your dinner. Superb!
*Desserts section, from eclairs, fruit pie, banana pie, pudding to various Middle-Eastern desserts such as baklava and um-ali, everything just delicious. Perfect the sweet tooth person!
*Clockwise: Beef Shawarma, chicken samosa, tempe mendoan, and falafel
Beef Quesadillas & Nachos
*Bakmi, I tried their bakmi with meatball, vegetables, sausage and chicken. I love the broth, it was super fresh and tasty!
Well, it was a nice experience to dine in here. Delectable array of various cuisines could be perfect for you who are looking for a fine place to break your fast or to just have a dinner this month. For only IDR350K++ per person including hot beverages and ta'jil, I believe the price is nothing with the worthy food quality you'll get.
So, thank you Keraton at The Plaza for your kind hospitality. Looking forward for my next visit to try your best Dates Juice again, I wish it's available outside the Ramadhan promo too ;-) ...
