A few weeks ago my friends and I decided to go for a food hunting day and we have picked Tugu Kunskring Paleis for our venture. This place is pretty much historical and there were a bunch of world class painting masterpieces displayed. I was so excited to go here because I wanted to see one of Pablo Picasso’s pieces and unfortunately while I was there, they kept it away in storage. I was very disappointed however there were still a bunch of other art pieces and the place itself is already very interesting.
There we decided to try some of the dishes and one of the highlights was trying the Ayam Setan (Devil Chicken). It was spicy and the flavors were very bold. I liked how the chicken was made tender and you can smell some Inonesian spices.
We also had the bitter balen. This dish I guess is pretty much inspired by the Dutch and I like how its crispy in the outside and soft in the inside.
This is the room where we dined and it was pretty massive for only the three of us eating there. We were also told that a few days before we were here, Victoria Beckham had dinner here and also the Sukarno family. The Sukarno family even had a VIP room named after them in this restaurant!
In this restaurant they also have a gift shop and they sell a bunch of nice antiques. Oh and a tip for you guys if you want to come. You can ask the person there to give you a tour of the place! 🙂
