Menu Highlights: Sunday Brunch 2015 at C’s Steak & Seafood Restaurant (Grand Hyatt Jakarta)

One spectacular treat before starting the Ramadan this year was a super Sunday Brunch at C’s Steak & Seafood Restaurant. Here’s why it is a die-die-must-try experience for you to visit this restaurant for this occasion!

As a restaurant that ambitiously intertwines cuisines of different worlds. There are prime choices of meat, seafood, and Asiatic dishes – all prepared fresh on daily basis. The supply chain and storage managements will elude even the most gourmet of foodies.

For years, C’s has been very successful in making the best out of its produce. There’s no other time to showcase how marvelous the quality of these ingredients other than during Sunday Brunch.

So let’s start right away with the oysters. You can have it as many and as fresh as it can be. Just simply order for how many and the crews will shuck them open freshly, serve the oysters on a bed of ice, and straight to your table. Preferably, I left all the sauces behind and just opt for the accompaniment of a bit of lemon juice and black pepper. There’s nothing else you can ask for.

Heading next, still at the seafood department, would be a mix platter of fresh salad, salmon, and the Alaskan king crab. Of course, there’s always a choice for prawns, smaller crabs, lobsters, and yabbies; but I cannot skip to mix these wonders in a single plate.

Heading to the meat section and there’s Chef Matt Demery who runs the show. “I was waiting for you to say hi”, he said. Yes, I was more than ready to hit the most wanted part of C’s and he recommended me the secret option of wagyu short ribs.

Immediately I combined almost everything to my plate. The lamb chop, the homemade sausage, the classic ribs, and the chef’s best kept secret – wagyu short ribs topped with green chilies sauce!

Now, there’s one thing left missing and that’s Chef Matt’s housemade steak sauce. Made from 30 secret ingredients, the sauce packs not just more flavor, but more intricacy than the usual BBQ sauce.

Last but not least, the Chinese cuisine section and the desserts buffet were no less enticing. Experience freshly stir-fried classic Chinese food, dim sum, mantau with condensed milk, and Peking duck while here. For the desserts; surely the homemade ice cream, apple pies, and other sweet offerings should be kept in your must-not-miss list!

All of this for IDR 700,000++ was an unforgettable experience. You know the routine now with the quality of this restaurant for its individual dish, but now when collectively gathered in a great Sunday Brunch – there’s no escaping this. It’s a must visit for you and another turn for me as well.

Shall we?

Menu Highlights: Sunday Brunch 2015 at Scusa (InterContinental Jakarta Midplaza)

With several top-class restaurants around Jakarta are now rejuvenating their Sunday Brunch concept, my recent visit to Scusa at InterContinental Jakarta Midplaza was among the most memorable. Not only in terms of food that Scusa is now getting more prepared than ever, but there’s something else that makes it more exciting.

As a long standing, fine-dining style Italian restaurant; Scusa has been in my heart earlier than the first time I introduced myself to other five-star hotels’ restaurants in Jakarta, regardless of the genre. Several chefs have been reigning over this establishment but now as the incumbent master of the house, Chef Gianluca Visciglia revives the glorious Italian spirit once more.

Before getting ourselves talking about the food, the first and foremost gimmick that makes Scusa has that edge for its Sunday Brunch is that you don’t need to move an inch from where you’re seated! Just simply sit down, relax, and have a great time with your friends and family while the experienced team of Scusa will prepare the best from the kitchen and serve the food straight to your table.

It all began with a generous antipasti for sharing and then came next for your time to choose the primi and secondi. You can order as many as you like from a vast array of fresh pasta available and also the pizza. I personally had my risotto and I couldn’t help to finish it all off even after a plate of ravioli before!

The best part came soon afterwards. It’s time for you to choose the land or the sea. Of course, when we are talking about the latter, it’s an array of frutti di mare ready to be grilled. I picked the ones from the land and it was the ribs from great other choices such as tenderloin, sirloin, chicken, and also quail.

And so, the story goes on and on and on. Sunday Brunch calls for a celebration of life and the best time to gather around your loved ones. With this initiative, you would not need to stroll around and look for food but instead they finally found their way to your dining table. But of course, you can always pick it by yourself, especially the desserts. From cheese platter, fruits, to Italian classic pastries; it’s a must-not miss. So it’s best to save up some space for this one.

The Sunday Brunch at Scusa will be priced at IDR 395,000++ and will start soon in August 2015. So, be sure to book right away and enjoy the best Italian-style brunch as devised cleverly by a spirited Italian chef!
