One of the best Sunday Brunch in Jakarta is at the Keraton The Plaza. With the elegant restaurant, Bengawan is located on the 7th floor of the Keraton hotel with views of the Jakarta city from an interesting height. With a large area that contains a capacity of about 40-50 people. Contemporary, artistic design, dominant with bright colors provides a pleasant atmosphere.
In the year 2018, Bengawan offers the latest Sunday brunch sensation with a concept called Bloco de Carnaval. A little explanation of this Brazilian phrase means a street bands are usually often seen in Rio with a lively crowd in the street as a carnival. With the presence of Brazilian chef Rafael Gil with a wealth of experience in the culinary industry, he is expert in presenting an exciting new menu concept. With theme typical of Brazil certainly attract the attention of Jakarta society.
One of the spot that attract attention here is when entering the Bengawan, we will be greeted by the dessert section complete with the statue of Cristo Redentor, which is an icon from Brazil made of chocolate base.
The classic Brazilian menu variant is clearly visible in one section that would have caught my attention. There are some foods like Moquecca Baiana, seabass dish with yellow spice with coconut milk, palm oil and vegetables. The creamy and savory flavors blend perfectly and are delicious when enjoyed with Arozz Temperado rice.
Jasmine rice with garlic and parsley to produce a very fragrant aroma. The savory taste and the texture of the rice is more dense than ordinary white rice. In this Bloco de Carnaval event we can also enjoy various seafood with varied preparations such as crab with a thick sauce, a savory taste and able with a choice of spicy sensation.
Enjoy a pleasant brunch with a variant menu plus a Samba dancer performance that gives a nice touch of Latin concept. Immediately all the guests seemed enthusiastic with the presence of two samba dancers. Do not forget after enjoying a variety of lunch dishes, can end with a typical dessert Brazil. However for some dishes it feels very dominant with the sweetness.
For the price offered is quite high, but in accordance with the concept of the Keraton of Jakarta that conform luxury hotel with good quality. In addition to a variety of dishes, guest will also be pampered with a champange sensation that will make the brunch to be perfect.
