Sunday Brunch at Rasa (AYANA Midplaza, Jakarta)

by 8:48:00 AM

Rasa Restaurant is one of the hotel buffet restaurant(s) located at AYANA Jakarta (formerly known as InterContinental Jakarta). If I've ever talked about the Ramadan special dinner, (you can read it here) now I'm going to share about my recent experience indulging in Singaporean Food Festival Sunday Brunch at Rasa Restaurant!

The restaurant did give a different vibe for Sunday Brunch as it is brighter and more family-friendly with those beautiful view of the pool. The natural lighting from the outdoor area was pretty great and refreshing as well although the weather was a little bit hot during my visit. The Sunday Brunch was priced at IDR 388k nett per person which is a great deal!

Let's get started with their food!

Singapore Laksa

The Singaporean Food Festival was held on 2 - 15 August 2017 by inviting Chefs from Singapore, so you could expect authentic flavor of Singaporean food. In case you don't want to miss any special deals for the dining, you can check their website here. The Singapore Laksa tasted perfect with a hint of tangy and spicy flavor with perfect thick broth.

Chili Crab

The Chili Crab was served along with fried mantou and it tasted super delicious and I always love the chili crab sauce even though I'm not a big fan of seafood itself. Be prepared as your hand might get a little bit messy and dirty when eating this Chili Crab (lol!)


I did try bunch of other menus available during my Sunday Brunch experience and I have to say that nothings disappoint me, I personally love the super unique tacos with oxtail meat and green chili sauce which surprisingly complements each other well. The seafood served was pretty fresh and there are dimsum sections as well if you prefer to have Chinese-style brunch.


One thing that should never be missed if you visit Rasa Restaurant is to try their famous dessert which was pretty and amazing. (kudos to the pastry chef!) Seriously, I could say that their dessert was on the whole another level and I'd even come here only for their dessert (yes, it's that good!)


As a dessert-person myself, I'd recommend you to try all of their dessert but if I have to recommend one, you have to try the famous egg in the nest looking chocolate dessert. Trust me, it tasted divine and you will be longing for it once you tried it!


Overall, I enjoyed my Sunday Brunch experience at Rasa Restaurant, their food tasted great (and the dessert was amazing!), the service was great and the place is nice. I'd highly recommend this place for family, lovers or friends who would like to indulge in Sunday Brunch experience because they offer pretty good deal with reasonable price. Last but not least, thanks for having me and best of luck for Rasa Restaurant!

Fat Shogun (Kuningan, Jakarta)

by 7:10:00 PM

Fat Shogun is a restaurant that specialized in serving fusion Japanese-Peruvian cuisine located at Menara BTPN in Mega Kuningan area. As Indonesia will be celebrating independence day soon, Fat Shogun will join the festive by launching special Independence Day Set which will only be available on 16-17 August 2017. To get into the restaurant, find the lift located near the lobby (it's outside the building though) and go up to "R" or Rooftop floor.

I personally love the interior and decoration of the restaurant as it looked like a mixture between modern eatery with a traditional Japanese touch. They also have an outdoor smoking area which has a quite good view and keep in mind that the whole restaurant will turn into smoking area after 9 PM. The Independence Set menu is priced at IDR 400k/pax and consists of:
  • Ceviche with Acar Dressing (Appetizer)
  • Red White Tiradito (Appetizer)
  • Chicken Roll & Cod Misoyaki (Main Course)
  • Yuccamochi (Dessert)

Oh, and if you RSVP before 15 August 2017, you will get special price of IDR 375k/pax!

Let's get started with their food!

Ceviche with Acar Dressing
Ceviche with Acar Dressing

Ceviche with Acar Dressing is sliced snapper, red onion, tomatoes mixed with traditional acar dressing. This one tasted pretty sour and tangy from the acar dressing, definitely a good one to have as starter.

Red White Tiradito
Red White Tiradito

Red White Tiradito is sliced sea bass and tuna with mango ginger salad sauce. Kudos for the idea to include the signature Indonesian flag color in the food! It tasted pretty delicious and the mango ginger salad sauce had a pretty strong aroma and flavor.

Chicken Roll & Cod Misoyaki
Chicken Roll

Chicken Roll & Cod Misoyaki is a combination of chicken rolled with rice and char boiled cod with misoyaki sauce served along with seasonal bunch of veggies. It made a perfect combination as you can taste the delicious and tender chicken along with the moist cod fish. Everything in the plate was perfectly complementing each other and I really love this one!

Cod Misoyaki


Yuccamochi is cassava cake served with coconut pearl ice cream, I've never imagined that cassava could be this great and tasty and I bet you wouldn't even realized that the whole cake was made from cassava. It has an interesting texture and tasted pretty sweet and nice.

Overall, I really enjoyed the Independence Day Set by Fat Shogun, the food tasted super delicious, the service was great and the place is nice. Make sure you don't miss these good combination of food as it'll only be available for 2 days (16 - 17 August 2017). I do hope that they will have this in their permanent menu in the future, because it's really good! Last but not least, thanks for having me and best of luck for Fat Shogun.
