SATOO at Shangri-La Hotel Jakarta

October 4th, 2016. One fine day. I woke up and prepared myself for a visit to one of the best buffet place in town. I always love this place. They have everything, I guess. I don’t remember how many times I went there for their buffet. But I remember the first time I went to this place for my nephew’s birthday party years ago. I was stunned by their delicious food. Now, let’s enjoy those mouthwatering dishes. SATOO at Shangri-la Hotel Jakarta.

SATOO is all about the culinary exploration of Asian and international cuisines. Chic and modern are the first impressions one gets upon entering the casual cafe area and seeing the dessert station featuring a chocolate fountain and an irresistible display of cakes, pastries, souffles, ice creams and jajanan pasar (traditional Indonesian snacks).


There are 12 interactive open kitchen stations featuring various types of cuisines and dishes, including Indian, Western, Chinese, Indonesian, salad, sushi, sashimi, barbecue, noodles, pasta, desserts, fruits and jamu (traditional Indonesian herbal concoctions).

When I looked at those stations, I realized that something has changed. Turned out, they changed the decorations of the stations. It’s more cheerful. Names of the food on blackboard. Pictures on the wall. Playing with colours. It’s just so beautiful. 🙂

Their salmon sashimi was one of the best. And the desserts. OMG! I couldn’t pick their best dessert, because they were all delicious. It’s been so good to eat desserts while chit-chat with friends. We talked about everything. About my trip to Bandung next week. About my foodtasting experiences. About their jobs. About the food. About the weather. When we ate, suddenly it’s raining hard. Very hard. When it’s time to leave, I had to wait for almost 2 hours for my gocar. Traffic jam everywhere. *sigh*
