Dear fellow tasters,
It’s been ages since the last post, so I tried to write something short (I hope) about The Cafe at Hotel Mulia Senayan. It’s one of the dining area at the 5-star hotel which offered all-you-can-eat international food ranging from sushi/sashimi to dim sum, from Indian curries to assortments of mouth-watering desserts.
My first lunch course began with the Japanese plate, with salmon, tuna, octopus, white-tail sashimi and on the side, prawn, scallop, and tobiko canapés. Next was the Chinese plate, with siu may, ha kau (shrimp dumpling), meat bun, shrimp, scallop, and squid dishes. Then it was time for the Indian plate, with curries and spicy indian made from salmon, beef, chicken, and lamb, complete with papadam, mango chutney, and mint yogurt. Later it was back to Chinese and seafood with garlic butter shrimp and black pepper crab followed by vietnamese meat ball noodle soup and a bit taste of oyster. Next stop was the grill plate with lamb chops and tenderloin steaks, and then back to sushi/sashimi once more before sampling the sweet desserts and ice cream. Accompanying all the delicious food were giant glasses of refreshing fruit teas.
For around 200k++ per person (excluding drink, price different for lunch/dinner, weekdays/weekends, call the hotel for more accurate info), for an all-you-can-eat experience like this, it was highly satisfactory with all the different flavor and variety of cuisine. My only regret was that we arrived a bit late and the food counters were fast closing in preparation for dinner. Another thing to be noticed is that there are two opposite rooms with different food selection – the first with mostly the food and the other with the desserts and seafood selection – and we haven’t had much time to explore the the later area.
The taster’s notes:
Favorite dish – almost everything, definitely love the sashimi, lamb chops, and the yummy desserts
What to try next time – the seafood selection in the other room, different desserts, more sashimi
Food rating – 3 star
Price rating – $$ (it should be $$$ because of the price per pax but due to the variety and quality of food that you can have there, i think it’s really worth the money)
Ambiance rating – 3 star
Service rating – 2 star
