Visited Harum Manis a while ago for Sunday Brunch, and we were in for a surprise. All of us being first-timers, we didn't knew what we were in for, thinking it was just a typical Indonesian Restaurant. Who knew they were award winners for quite a while now, what a gem that we found.
Unlike the normal buffet, there wasn't that much spread, but each station serves really good food. Our favourites would be the Bubur Ayam and Ketoprak. Enough introduction and let the pictures speak a thousand words.
Highlight from the Nasi Station - do try their Tongseng Kambing / Goat Curry, they most definitely have that goat smell, but if you're a fan of goat, then is what you should be looking out for!
The satay was definitely one of the best for restaurants, leaving out the street vendors aside. Each stick was soft and tender, and there is that charcoal smell to it which adds in to the yum factor.
For both the Ketoprak and Satay, you may ask them to leave out the Lontong / Rice Cake, then you'll have more space for the other yummy goodness.
Bubur Ayam! Such a simple dish, but had us rushing back for more, it was that good! Definitely the highlight of the meal, every last drop was savoured. One of the best in town! It's not in their a la carte menu; but the Bubur Ayam alone is enough to make us come back for their Sunday Brunch.
Overall, we had an enjoyable brunch, where we see ourselves coming back for more, and bringing guests to dine. We have dined here on another occasion for dinner, and is was however, rather disappointing.We find that the food weren't as delish and it was more expensive too!
So, if you want to give it a try, do not give their Sunday Brunch a miss. It was only 135thousand++, for a buffet, it was such a steal!! They're available every Sunday from 11AM to 2.30PM.
