Arts Cafe by Raffles Hotel Jakarta

Hi Eaters.

Who doesn't love Sunday? Raise your hand, please! No one? Well, I guess everyone loves a good Sunday, particularly me. Being so busy from Monday to Friday, then Saturday and Sunday are the days I long await for every single week.
My other reason would be that on those days I can enjoy brunch with friends and family without being distracted by work.
On last Sunday, I had the pleasure of having brunch with some of my very best friends, in a very nice cafe called Arts Cafe by Raffles.

Being so strategically located in the business area of Kuningan, it's so easy to access this cafe. You can either go directly from Raffles Hotel or you can access it from Lotte Shopping Avenue. Any way you please.
We went there of course for the Sunday Brunch. It's a good time in the day between breakfast and lunch to get a nice chit chat while enjoying good food.
My first impression of this cafe was it's soooo artsy. It bears the name respectively. I really liked how they implemented fruit shapes into their lights or even other interior designs.
It's so unique, a feast to the eye and certainly comforting.

Their buffet was outstanding. I always loved buffet, and if the buffet was great then I would love it instantly. And Arts Cafe's buffet was something not only to be loved, but also to be remembered.
I tried almost everything, from sushis, sashimis, pork, beef, seafood (I am so loving their seafood!) and desserts.
They may not have a wide variant of food stations but trust me, your tummy will be full before you even try every food here. I've experienced that, LOL. So it's more than enough, I think. But if they do add more stations then it will be great!

Oysters, pasta, pork, and salmon! OMG, these are soooo delicious! I loved the pork and the salmon. So exquisite!

From the seafood station: prawns and scallop. These are also delicious!

SASHIMIS!!!!! OMG, I really love sashimis. These darlings are so fresh and yummy! I even took them several times. Like maybe 3-4 times. I can't seem to get enough of them. The baby octopus was also tasty. Oh dear, now I feel like I wanna turn back the time to that Sunday Brunch again..

Their dessert station offered a sweet tooth heaven. So many delicious cakes, pastries and bread to choose from. My dessertholic friend was like all crazy when she saw this station.


Traditional Roast Turkey with Trimmings
Chestnut Stuffing, Brussel Sprouts, Roasted Baby Carrots, Braised Leeks, Chipolatas Sausages.

Really loved this dish. Overall I think it was spot on. The seasoning, the texture, and the juiciness were just what I expected from the dish.

Baked Tenderloin Wellington
With Black Pepper Sauce and Truffle Mashed Potato

Ever since the era of Gordon Ramsay's Masterchef, Beef Wellington always bring a catchy feeling for me. Beef wrapped with puff pastry? Sounds pretty delicious for me. At Arts Cafe, the Beef Wellington is served with truffle mashed potato. No complaints about the wellington, it was so succulent, juicy and tender. The blackpepper sauce was tasty too. The mashed potato had the perfect texture, really soft. But I think it could use a bit enhancement in flavors. A bit pinch of salt maybe.

FYI, while you are having your brunch, the Chef will also be sending you some of the creations from the Show Kitchen. They are some unique dishes you won't find on the buffet, but I can tell you they are awesome!
Here are those dishes from the Show Kitchen I had that day:

1. Chouquette with Truffle Cheese
Fresh Truffle, Parmesan Cheese, Cheese Custard, Pastry Choux

2. Salmon Teriyaki
Norwegian Salmon, Teriyaki Sauce, Japanese Teriyaki Sauce

3. Vanilla Cauliflower Soup
Cauliflower, Cream, Fresh Vanilla, Vanilla Pot, Pan-Seared Cauliflower, Floret

4. Capellini Pasta Gorgonzola
Capellini Pasta, Gorgonzola Cheese, Parsley, Garlic, Anchovies, Union, Olive oil

5. Seared Scallop Freen Pea
Scallop Hokaido, Green Pea Puree, Green Pea Fondue

6. Chix-Breast Carrot Corn

Pensear Chicken-Breast, Carrot Puree, Corn Kennel

7. Foie Grass Terrine
Foie Grass, Verbena Jelly (a kind of tea leaf), Verbena Reduction, Caramel Crambel

I didn't get the chance to take snapshots of the food. It was so yummy, I kinda lost myself and just realized after that I haven't took any shots of the Show Kitchen dishes. But in case you are wondering what they looked like, you can see it on my friend's blog, right here.

And everything ended so beautifully with a cup of cappuccino.

Overall conclusion, I had a great time. The food was fantastic, the ambiance was super cozy, and the service was impeccable. Everything was just top notch. I couldn't be happier that Sunday, even the gloomy weather didn't make me feel any blue. 
So thank you Arts Cafe, and thank you Raffles Hotel Jakarta for having me. This is now listed in my most favourite hotel buffet restaurants in Jakarta. Keep up the good work!

Keep on chewing!
