October 12th, 2017. I was very happy when I received invitation from Sofia at The Gunawarman. I wanted to visit the place, but a little bit afraid with the place. Well, it looked very intimidating. Don’t blame me. Look for yourself. Hahaha. But, finally, after visited the place, it’s not that scary. 🙂
A radiant naturally lit gourmet restaurant decorated gracefully with a row of striking floor-to-ceiling arc windows that serves exceptional Italian, French and Asian cuisines with a comfort of everyday dining approach.
Located at Hotel The Gunawarman, Sofia stood beautifully with the elegant and luxury ambiance. But, I felt the friendly gesture from the place. Well, I came to an IGers gathering, so it’s very fun to meet different kind of people.
A journey and feast on a Family Style Menu that is truly Sofia. Modern on Classic. Comforting with a good number of the Chef’s personal favourites growing up. by Chef Justina Harjono.
coconut-shoyu butter, parmesan
jalapeno maya, avocado
chicken liver mousse
milk toast, maple, kai-ware
From those snacks, I loved chicken liver mousse. The texture was lovely. First, I thought it will be super slimey. Turned out it was perfectly gooey.
chilled salmon confit
grapes, shallot, tangerine
spicy sunbathing prawn
curry leaves, lime, evoo
caesar dressing, crispy chicken skin, brioche crumbs
I love the sunbathing prawn. So delicious! Well-seasoned. Some said the salmon confit was good, but for me, still the prawn. The texture was juicy and not-chewy. Dabest!
shoyu-truffle butter, edamame, almond milk, onsen egg
grilled ox tongue
roasted radish, sesame, yuzukosho
greek yoghurt, basil, lemon
I fell in love with the 6-hour bolognese. OMG! It's so good! The texture of the pasta was perfect! I never liked al dente pasta hahaha.. The minced meat was very generous, with succulent flavour. The pan roasted chicken was too salty for me. The grilled ox tongue was a little bit too hard to chew.
honey pannacotta, burnt meringue, kahlua granita
selection of cake, macaron and chocolate
I didn't really like the tiramisu, but the petit four were fantastic. Love those cute cake, macaron and chocolate.
Thanks Sofia at The Gunawarman and Chef Justina Harjono for the lovely lunch.
