Aroma Sedap, Menteng, Central Jakarta
Quite a rare restaurant that sells typical cuisine Makassar in Jakarta. Well this time I found one restaurant in Menteng area of Central Jakarta. From the outside looks not too big, dominated by white and like a house building.
But when i entered the restaurant, i was quite impressed with the interior that looks luxurious. In front of the lobby greeted by decorative plants along the wall that could be an interesting photo spot. Entering the inner room, I saw the photos in the longest frame. Tehre seems many important people in Indonesia have come to this restaurant like one of Mrs. Megawati.
Aroma Sedap turned out to have a large enough space, may be able to load about 50-60 people. Plain white and dark colors dominate the whole restaurant. With the concept of Indonesia, wooden chair table and green decoration on some spot on the wall and also the stairs look beautiful.
This time I was with my foodies mates who looks so enthusiastic. Aroma Sedap is a typical Makassar restaurant offering various kinds of seafood. From the usual seafood we eat like fish, squid, shrimp to food that is only available in Makassar.
One of my favorites is the Kudu-Kudu Fish, whose name is quite strange. Fish with skin bottle and hard, but contains a very soft white meat. Deep fried with crispy flour and seasoning. Ease of fish has been fried fillet making it easier for consumption.
Then, there was a Salur Egg Salt Crab that looks very tempting and huge. Crabs are processed together with the seasoning of salted eggs that are legit. I just think the crab texture was bit dried and the salty egg seasoning did not seep into the meat.
At this event we did really enjoyed the variety of typical seafood makassar dishes. Not to forget there was also Kailan Kribo vegetables. The appearance is not like kailan usually. With slices of stems and kailan that have been mashed to form like a tree.
For the price, I think it's pretty standard, with an exclusive concept, fresh seafood quality and the presence of some fish that must be sent from Makassar directly because it can not be cultivated in Jakarta. Do not forget the well maintained service and cleanliness.
In addition, they also provide a private room located on the second floor so it is suitable for a meeting place or special events with friends and family. A little information, you should make reservations in advance especially in this month of Ramadan where the many events breaking the fast together.
