We went to visit Bengawan on a Sunday for their Sunday Brunch, it is located at the Keraton Hotel, which is right next to the new Plaza Indonesia building. With an elegant chic decor, the restaurant serves both a la carte and buffet, with a mix of Indonesian and International menu.
This particular island holds salad, mini cold dishes and Japanese.
The fresh seafood island, serving oysters, scallops, prawn, crayfish, crab legs, octopus, and caviar too.
At a corner near the pool, you can find pasta and grilled beef station. The steak was good but not great, especially after having The Best Steak days before.
The grill/BBQ station, the cook grills them for you on the spot, with a selection of Chicken, Lamb, Seafood, Wagyu beef and the creme de la creme, Kobe beef for you to choose from.
The Indonesian section. We found a pebble in one of our rice, and the server seemed genuinely surprised and promptly apologized, so all is well :)
Noodle soup, Onion Soup and Tempura that were just so so. Better save your tummy for the seafood or grills.
Saving the best for the last. There actually is a Foie Gras station, where they melt in your mouth, quite literally.
The dessert station. We were all looking forward to dessert, as Le Sister and Cousin A were both sweet-toothed, but it disappointed them both. Even with the wide selection of cakes, both local and western, chocolate fondue, macarons, jelly and even ice cream, the only one we think deserved a mention is the chocolate mousse.
A thing to note is that the Sunday Brunch includes drinks - tea, juices, soft drinks and water (mineral and sparkling). We appreciate this as normally buffets do not include drinks, so it's nice for a change, to not worry about how much the drink bill is gonna come up to.
Overall, we had a great brunch, the food were fresh, the selection were good, the servers were attentive. You really couldn't ask for more from a buffet, except maybe pay a bit more attention to the dessert section ;)
