Huize Trivelli

My friend has been telling me about this interesting heritage restaurant and patisserie named "Huize Trivelli" that serves traditional Indonesian dishes that have been adjusted to Dutch dishes or vice versa.

So yesterday, my friend brought me to this restaurant for a nice lunch :)

As soon as, I entered I directly could feel the peaceful and nice ambiance with nice old Indonesian songs mixed with Dutch language being played in the background in the restaurant.

This restaurant was built in the late 1930s as a home for a Dutch family. FYI, Indonesia was colonized by the Dutch for 300 years. And since 2006, this family home has been converted into a restaurant.

Huize Trivelli's decoration is based on the antique Javanese - European and Chinese cultural traditions.

I guess enough introduction of the restaurant and without further ado, let's get right into the pictures to tell more ;)
