Tugu Kunstkring Paleis- CNY 2018 Luncheon

Tugu Kunstkring Paleis Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Welcome to Chinese New Year Luncheon held by Adelle Jewellery! Amazing lunch with all the girls, especially in this beautiful place. The restaurant is still under 10 year of age, but the building is already there hundred years ago, very historical. It was a gallery building during Dutch era in Indonesia and many historical stories happened in this place. You may ask the employees in the restaurant about the history of the building. Sounds interesting!


When I enter the place, I see a beautiful dining area, decorative arts of Indies, ‘aristocracy’ touch, with beautiful chandeliers, and old paintings. Okay, this is one of my most favorite fine dining restaurant since I love classical, unique, and beautiful place. Super love! There are many antique stuffs for the decoration.




When you go on the left side, you can see an oriental decoration area, lanterns on the ceiling, and a small bar. Then, on the right side of the dining area, you will find the artsy gallery. I like this gallery since there are many oriental-antique stuffs decorated the gallery.




Back to the main dining area, the dim light makes the place a little bit creepy at noon. If you like scary stories, then you must come to this restaurant in the evening. There will be a story telling about scary things happened in this place. Wow! For me, this is the right place to celebrate Chinese New Year, related to the decoration and ambient of this place. So peaceful and suitable for celebrating events. If you like to take many OOTD photos with elegant-glamorous-like, then this place can be added to your destination.



The restaurant gives us some choices of main course foods and drinks :



Kluwak Spare Ribs in Spicy Tamarind Gravy


This is must-try dish for Chinese New Year’s Eve reuinion. So perfect! The beef ribs are cooked in kluwak and another spices. The meat is tender, boiled, and meaty. Yummy!

Nasi Lemak Kunstkring


The rice looks small with many small dishes. The small ‘nasi lemak’ is accompanied by black baby squid, fried chicken wings, dried shrimps, crispy river baby fish, omelette, kangkung belachan, and pickles. Good taste, but not addicted.

Kway Teow Seafood Balacan


The presentation was good in which the fried kway teow is placed in the middle, while the  oyster, shrimp crackers, and pickles are placed around the kway teow. The kway teow was very chewy (rubbery) and hard to swallow. The taste is actually good, oriental-taste.

Kunstkring Kluwak Fried Rice with Oxtail


It’s just a fried rice, cooked with kluwak gravy and topped with shrimps and bean sprouts. The taste is fine, but not as good as I thought.

Hot Japanese Green Tea


A perfect drink after eating the oily dishes. So calming.

Overall, with the so-so taste, I think this place is pricey. The place is awesome, but the selected set menu is not as good as I expected. However, many people like the foods served and maybe you can try another menu. I would like to go to this place again to try out another menu which are recommended by my friends.


Happy Chinese New Year!

Bistronomy – Halloween Party

Bistronomy Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato




Even though the celebration is not common, Halloween is still one of the events that you can celebrate with your friends. The costumes, the decorations, and also the foods are made to be ghost-like character and to scary all of the people. The “Trick or Treat” and the Jack-O-Lantern are two things that should be there in a Halloween party. It’s a little bit difficult to find a restaurant / cafe that is suitable to celebrate a Halloween party in Jakarta. We decided to search all places via Zomato and Pergikuliner . Finally, after long discussion, we chose Bistronomy as the right place for the Halloween party.

Located at Senopati (near Gastromaquia), Bistronomy is a suitable place for private party. Judging from the outside, it looks like a vintage house, but kinda spooky.



Inside, each table is separated with curtains, hence no need to worry that you might be disturbed with the others. The place is kinda a small house with spooky decoration. All of the employee wear black dresses and black suits. The dim light and the rain are so perfect, making the party even more spooky. At the right side, there is a bar with vintage touch.





I like how they decorate all parts of the restaurant with Halloween props, such as pumpkin, scary dolls, monsters’ hands, gothic-look a like costumes, and many more. We had so much fun during our time at Bistronomy.




Bistronomy Mix Platter (70k)


The tapas consists of chicken wings, fried calamari, chicken spring rolls, onion rings, and mixed salads, served with BBQ sauce and Tartar sauce. The fried foods are crispy and tasty. The chicken wings are good, as well as the spring rolls. I can finish half portion of the platter :p

Aglio Olio Pasta (80k)


The smell of garlic and oregano makes me hungry. The pasta is tasty, but so spicy. It’s too hot for people who can’t eat spicy foods. Better to ask the waitress to decrease the chili.

Carbonara Pasta (90k)


The pasta is delicious with chicken, Shimeji mushroom, egg, and creamy sauce. The ‘heavy’ taste of the cream will make you full. I like the taste of mixed cream and parmesan cheese. Tasty and creamy!

Chicken Cordon Bleu (80k)


The battered chicken is well-seasoned and tasted so good with the sauce. The smoke beef and cheese are inside the chicken, making the dish even tastier.

Chicken Steak with Chili Garlic (120k)


This si just a normal chicken steak. Grilled chicken breast is served with mixed salad and french fries. The chicken is tender, griiled- aroma, and juicy. The sauce is spicy and has fried garlic aroma.



Black Fried Rice and Chicken Strips


The black fried rice is placed inside a bowl in a pumpkin. The cute ‘Jack-O-Lantern’ is just perfect for your Halloween party. The rice tasted delicious with calamari pieces inside the rice. The portion is quite big for just one person.

Creamy Pumpkin Soup


It is also served in a small ‘Jack-O-Lanter’ bowl. So cute! The cream soup is actually good, but it’s too cremay for me. The portion is suitable for 2-3 person for a starter. However, if you want this menu for the main course, I think the portion is just enough for 1 person.

Spaghetti ‘Eye’ Bolognaise


The pasta is cute enough for me. The big eyes are made from boiled eggs and olive pieces. The food stylist is so creative to make an ordinary dish to be extraordinary! The taste is just like a regular bolognaise, not so sour (so good for me) and beefy.

Spider Lava Cake


For the dessert, the lava cake is decorated as a cute spider! So creative! The choco lava is best eaten whilst it’s still hot. I tried this cake when it’s already cold, so I couldn’t give a valid review for this menu.

Finger Chocolate Mousse


Consists of chocolate mousse, creme, strawberry jam, and chocolate garnish. This is my favorite dessert in Bistronomy. The fingers are made from biscuit, strawberry jam, and almond pieces. So cute and kinda a scary for us, though.


Overall, Bistronomy is a perfect place for celebrating Halloween party. The ambience and the decorations are so nice and spooky. Dark and few of light. The foods are delicious and the price is still affordable, slightly pricey for some people. I really enjoyed spending my time with my girls, celebrating the best Halloween party ever!
