Bengawan Keraton at The Plaza Thamrin Jakarta

October 7th, 2016. It’s always fun to keep in touch with your friend. Actually I met Cilla only one time. After that, she invited me to some events, but I couldn’t come. So, after months, finally have a chance to meet up again. And that afternoon, I went to Keraton at The Plaza with Cindy and Darius to try the new package at the restaurant. Bengawan.

Bengawan is the signature restaurant at Keraton at The Plaza, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Jakarta providing an authentic five-star dining experience.


Bengawan is introducing its latest gastronomy experience to public: A nimble devour called 59’ Lunch. Experience Bengawan’s latest semi buffet lunch package that comes with unlimited appetizers and dessert spread – chef’s special selection of main courses and first drink (coffee/tea/mineral water) for 258k nett/person. All completed in 59 minutes. 59′ lunch package is available from Monday to Friday 12pm-2pm.

Chef Gennaro creates 59’ Lunch that is easy to enjoy to the Indonesian palette. During the 59 minutes of serving time, guests will have the chance to savour: unlimited appetizers and dessert spread in form of a salad bar, soup of the day, wide selection of homemade pastries, Bengawan’s praised desserts, jajanan pasar, and other familiar dishes that are perfectly combined with chef’s special selection of main courses and first drink (mineral water/coffee/tea). “We are extremely excited to launch this novel interpretation of the most topical dishes of Bengawan. The 59’ Lunch is designed for those who appreciate an exquisite on-time dining experience in a trendy semi-buffet style,” closes Gennaro Avagnale, Executive Chef.


For the appetizers, I think they need more choices. They have sushi, but I think they should prepare sashimi as well. They have soup but only one option. I prefer another choice of soup. But the noodle cart was brilliant. It’s so fun to order noodle from the cart. Hahaha..

Nasi Komplit

Steamed rice with coconut milk, stir fried soy bean cake, sautéed water spinach, steamed fish in leaf, beef with spicy chilli sauce


Roasted Tilapia Chermoula

Served with baby potato and sautéed mix vegetables


Assorted Indonesian Satay

Served with steamed rice and condiments


Breaded Chicken Breasts

Served with pumpkin puree and sautéed mix vegetables

I didn’t like their pumpkin puree, too sweet for me. The breaded chicken breasts were okay. Maybe I was too long taking photo, it became dry and cold. LOL. Try enjoy it while still hot. 🙂



Heaven! Love the layer cake. Not too greasy. Perfectly sweet. One of the best, I guess. I love their donuts too. It’s like “donat kampung.” Their chocolate mousse was the best seller, according to customer’s testimony, I guess. Hahaha.. Cilla said, everybody likes it.
