If you are a high-end society who love to discover the nation's flavor, of course, Bengawan at Keraton  at The Plaza Hotel Jakarta would fulfill those request properly. Offering a significant collection of Western food with an Indonesian touch is their main attributes here. Friendly staff, warmth hospitality and luxury vibes comes next as their potential strength to treat you right. Sounds interesting? It's never too late to do the check-in now.

Bengawan is elegantly located on the 7th Floor of Keraton Hotel, Jakarta, this restaurant certainly got a tremendous city view with a bit of blue skyline. The one-story restaurant is built with glamorous wallpaper, wooden furniture, and curved arches. In here you will be impressed by the open-kitchen concept which allows you to see or even take a quirky snap for those process and chef behind those incredible dishes that your order before. 

Enjoy the weekday's lunch buffet featuring the '59' Lunch' that give you a chance to taste a wide variety of light bites, entrée, and desserts. It's all included in one system, but each person can only order 1 entrée while for the rest it's all free flow. Even for the beverage, there is a sparkling water or even refreshing cocktail to kick off your taste buds.

To start it strong, just visit the appetizer station that has been set at the center of the dining area. From the freshest salad bar to the crispy fritters are all boasts up the simple flavor and nice texture. None of them leave a wrong aftertaste for sure.

Moving on to the entrée, be sure to taste the Beef Stroganoff from the Western perspective and Nasi Komplit as a local treat. Both dishes is the best-seller menu here and exposed the rich ingredients. 

First, Beef Stroganoff is certainly executed really well. The beef got a juicy interior while the exterior itself remain moist has been covered beautifully by the nice sauce. Perhaps, it comes together with the mashed potato that tasteless flavor and quite creamy as well. What makes this dish stand out is that beautiful presentation which is good-looking and well prepared. Simple yet fancy.

Next, you can expect more from the Nasi Komplit to spice up your palate. Growing up with local has taught me to discover an authentic dish that looks not really fancy but taste beyond delicious.  And yes, this dish has simplified that idea and comes up more strong. The presentation is nice while the flavor is undeniably balance. What attracts me more is the complex combination of five different elements that has been resulting in lovely taste for sure. Just mixed it up together in one spoon, try it, and now you understand how to live like a local.

If you are a sweet person, be sure to visit Bengawan dessert station more than once. Because of every single thing, there is really good to be true. The presentation is nice, absolutely while the flavor itself remains sealed and fresh. Personally, I do love their Matcha Croissant, Kueh Lapis, and Fruit Danish. All of them is not-too-sweet, fresh and got a right texture. Be sure to taste it whenever you come here.

Bengawan is definitely a right destination for having the luxurious dining experiences with private vibes. The food is well set-up, the ambiance is undeniably great and the hospitality is far way better than any other. They successfully represent the essence of this city perfectly: dynamic, elegant, and friendly.
