March 12th, 2014. I went to Pullman Jakarta Indonesia at Thamrin area. I remember that spot was previously President Hotel, then changed to Nikko Hotel, and now Pullman. That night I planned to fill my tummy with delicious food from Sana Sini, where esquisite tastes mingle. I’ve already heard about this restaurant from my fellow bloggers. So, why Sana Sini?
Drawing inspiration from the Indonesian phrase ‘Sana –Sini’, which means ‘here and there’, Pullman Jakarta Indonesia offers you an unrivalled culinary excursion into the different corners of Europe and Asia through 4 individually designed spacious counters. Casually eat your way through different continents and hop across live cooking stations, as we serve up both all-day buffet and A la Carte, surrounded by contemporary décor. Complement your dining experience with an extensive wine list from Vinoteca – a global Pullman concept and a seductive selection of sweets from the bakery.
English version for Sana Sini is here and there. It means like this, when you enter the restaurant, you will see delicious food from Indonesia, China, Japan and Western. You will find them here, there and everywhere. That’s why they chose the name Sana Sini 🙂
