[HOTEL] Raffles Ciputra World Kuningan Jakarta – Part Two

November 29th, 2015. continuing the first part of our weekend getaway.

BREAKFAST TIME

Always love breakfast time. It’s a time to fill my tummy with delicious food after a long nite sleep. We had breakfast at Arts Cafe. It was such a lovely breakfast. It was raining and the place wasn’t crowded. We really had a good time there. Buffet breakfast was always pleasant. Fried rice, stir fried vermicelli, porridge, and pastry. Not to mention, they had this show kitchen menu.

FROM THE SHOW KITCHEN

Brioche French Toast

banana compote, hazelnut paste

The best! The french toast was soft and delicate. The banana compote was perfect. The hazelnut paste was sweet and delightful. Such a perfect dessert!

Belgian waffle

vanilla chiboust, selection of preservative

The waffle was very crispy. Love it. Tasted delicious. The vanilla chiboust was mild and delicate texture with milky taste. Adorable.

Crème chiboust is a crème pâtissière lightened with stiffly beaten egg whites. Though occasionally using whipped cream to lighten it, this is traditionally a millefeuille cream. Crème chiboust can be flavoured with vanilla, orange zest, or liqueurs.

63°C egg benedict

smoked salmon, bagel, creamy spinach, hollandaise espuma

I was full but couldn’t resist this one. The smoked salmon was well-seasoned and perfectly cooked. The bagel and creamy spinach enriched the flavour of this egg benedict. One of the best.

SWIMMING POOL

Enjoy a light meal, tea or aperitif at Navina, apoolside bar amid a lush tropical garden. A Continental and Asian à la carte menu is available, along with fresh fruit juices and cocktails, best enjoyed with vantage views of Hendra Gunawan’s famous art installations.

The garden by the pool was very beautiful. Such a cozy place to just hang around. You don’t have to swim if you don’t want to. Just sit and enjoy the environment. You can bring your book and enjoy your “me time” there. I forgot to bring my swimsuit. So, I guess next time I will be back to try their pool.

The texture of the foie grass was unique. It’s not mild. A little bit hard, actually. And I prefer the mild one. Tasted rich but less creamy.
