Sana Sini Buffet Restaurant by Pullman Jakarta Indonesia

I'm so excited when a friend invite me to join with him to taste a great restaurant in Pullman Jakarta - Thamrin. Since it just need to blink my eye from my office, so I said yes to his invitation.


If you feel like want to dine a buffet restaurant that served many great dishes, then Sana Sini by Pullman Jakarta should in your bucket list. Sana Sini is on the ground Floor of the Pullman Jakarta. Sana Sini means 'here there' in Indonesian, is a place where you can travel the world with your taste buds. When you entering the restaurant, your eyes will spoiled with their many varieties of menu. You don't have to be worry will lost an idea what to eat. Or when you bring someone who really picky in food, just bring'em here. I bet they never complaint about so many choice of menu here.

You can find Japanese, Chinese, Western and Indonesian Food in the buffet selection for lunch and dinner. Each section decorated their venue based on food they served. So we really can feel the ambiance not only from the food, but also from the place it-self.  The space is vibrant and fresh with floor to ceiling glass providing natural light.


Each section is steered by an expert expatriate chef. In total there are six international chefs; one from France, China, Belgium, and America and two chefs from Japan working along side top Indonesian's chefs.


Complimentary Bread
The bread look s like rocks if you notice the appearance. Or it similar like rugby ball perhaps? But whatever you describe it, the texture is not that  hard as it looks. Pretty amazing with the the softness from the bread. We get the crunchy texture from the hazelnut and there's a mix of a raisin and black olive in it. Really good for a start.

OHAYOU JAPAN


Like in traditional Japanese store, Japanese station in Sana Sini decorated with wooden chairs. There are a place where we can eat & see the Chef cooking our meal at the same time. Just sit in the bar stools where you can see the sushi display infront of you.


Those 3 above are the appetizer from the Japanese Station. Really fresh and a great start before continue your journey in Japanese food. Forget the exact names, but the one that I remember was is the wakame salad. Because it has the very fresh seaweed in it. Add a lil' bit of shoyu if you like. In the middle was mushroom. I like the mushroom much. It cooked well with the seasoning. And the last one is a slice of beed with seaweed and sprinkle with sesame. This was also taste good.


When visiting Japanese restaurant, 1st thing that caught in my eyes must be their sashimi station. For me, it can measure how fresh the ingredients that they have. If the sashimi already fresh, other ingredients must be followed. Like sashimi that served in Sana Sini, they have very addictive salmon, tuna, prawn, octopus, oyster, just mention. All taste fresh, a bit sweet, just dip it in shoyu sauce, I bet your chopstick wont stop to grab it.


When I saw sushi in their display, I feel like see the rainbow. Colorful tobiko topped most of the sushi roll. The filling is so generous. I can taste every ingredients that they put in the sushi. Although I taste that the rice way too sticky. But I guess it covered with their generous filling and the shoyu.

NI HAO CHINA


In the Chinese station one of the Chefs is preparing handmade noodles while another is carefully slicing roasted duck. There is also a wonderful mapo tofu for vegetarians and fresh noodle station.

Fresh Noodles & Toppings from Noodle Station
Tom Yum Noodle Soup
A high expectation come from Tom Yum Noodle from Chinese Station. I expect the sour & spicy Tom Yum actually. But what I taste is just a spicy soup with a hint of ginger in it. But I like the noodle texture. it perfectly made. Also with the generous seafood that add to the bowl. It taste fresh & cooked well. Sana Sini only have too increase the soup taste.

Fried Lamian
This Fried Lamian actually not include in their main menu. My friend made a special request to the Chef made one for him. Luckily the Chef willing to made with a pleasure. What a service. The taste was also beyond my expectation. It taste sooo damn great. All the ingredients that he put in this plate is blend well together. Nothing that too overwhelming. Best served hot just when the Chef take the Lamian from his wok to your plate. When you visit Sana Sini, try this Lamian and ask the Chef personally cook for you. I bet you wont regret.


This Dimsum is the first dish that capture in my eyes when I'm passed through the Chinese Station. The smoke from the Steam really teasing me. The fatty dimsum all look so tempting. So I grab every single dimsum that they served. The first bite I choose the mantou. I like the dough from the mantou. It so spongy. The filling also generous. I taste to mantou, chicken and red bean, and the chicke is so yuumy. Other dimsum also taste soo great. With fresh ingredients and generous filling, make me can't stop grab those dimsum.


Not complete visiting Chinese Station without its roasted duck and rolls. The roasted duck is really tender and the skin is really crisp.


There's also rice in Chinese station. Like typical Chinese food, the fried rice a bit less salt. What I like was Steam Dory Fish with blackbean sauce and its prawn. Taste so great.

APA KABAR INDONESIA


In Indonesian section you are welcome by a colorfull collection of krupuk (rice crackers) holders. Many varieties of Indonesian food that you can try.


The one that makes me stop in this station is their Satay. I saw they grill it fresh that day. There are several satay that you can choose. From satay prentul made from chicken, lamb satay, chicken satay and beef satay. The Chef said usually they served prawn also. The satay is really amazing. It so tender and perfectly grilled. With choice of peanut butter sauce or soy sauce. Served with sticky rice.


Soto Mie also served in Indonesian station. Taste decent. But have to add more seasoning in the broth for the soup to get more tasty flavor. Better server hot.


For chilli lover, you gonna love visit Indonesian station. Because they have 7 kind of sambal. From Mango sambal, dabu-dabu, sambal matah, sambal terasi, sambal hijau, and 2 others that I forget. Fried rice definitely served in here. I tried it with  with snapper. It taste decent.

Asinan Jakarta - Fruit & Veggies
HOW ARE YOU in WESTERN

 In Western Station we can many varieties kind of food also. from the fresh salad bar until the finest Australian Beef.



I like their petite tuna croissant. It simple but great. Their pasta also taste decent. Specially their rigatoni with mushroom cream sauce. If you see the picture above, rigatoni is the one behind the tuna croissant. It cooked aldente with nice cream cheesy sauce.


Love Love their Norwegian Salmon. OMG! It so tender, so juicy and not smell fishy. The cream cheese sauce add more flavor into it. On the right one is potato lyonnaise great for pairing.


King Prawn ala Provecale  is another dish that I like. The shrimp taste fresh and it seasoning well. Served with mushroom and baby tomato.


This is the one that I mentioned above. The tender Austalian Beef poured with au-jus and I think it cooked in medium. Because the juice is still taste from the meat. Taste decent.

DESSERT


Dessert Station have many varieties of dessert mix between the Indonesian and the western. I love to see their display. It so beautiful harmony there. Many traditional Indonesian snacks served here. Like Kue Lapis, Putu Mayang and even Kue Cubit.


Pancakes also served here.  You can mix it whatever you like. Like pancake above, it's a pancake that have 3 scoop ice cream, M&M chocolate and chocolate sauce for topping.


And then there is the sorbet, including mango with Indonesian mangoes, raspberry and hazelnut.


Look at the picture above, petite snack with big taste. Half cooked Kue Cubit remind me of my childhood times. I used to ordered with spider web shape also. They made the Kue Cubit so yummy. Also the macaroon. It chewy and crunchy. Love it.

WINE & BEVERAGE


Sana Sini also offer the Vinoteca wine concept where you can buy number of different wines by the glass with technology that makes sure that the wine is still kept fresh.

Fresh Healthy Mocktails
After around the world through dishes, I had a big smile and a happy tummy. Usually some hotels failed delivered buffet meal. But Pullman had succeed delivered almost all their dishes. Probably because  they have specialty Chef in every section that know well every dished that represent each country. It shown the tables are full during lunch. I hope they can keep the quality and the freshness of the food.

Thanks Madame Amel & Iyan-san for accompany us. It's a very great lunch.
