Modern Mexican Kitchen at Bengawan - Keraton at The Plaza

Starting the end of March 2014, Chef Lamberto Valdez Lara - the culinary director of Keraton at The Plaza, had launched a modern interpretation of the finest and most popular dishes from Mexico. The Mexican a la carte menu will be available daily from 12 pm to 3 pm for lunch and 6 pm to 10.30 pm for dinner.

So, today, I tried the Express Lunch Set Menu - Rp. 150.000 net per person. It is definitely a really good deal for a satisfying Mexican lunch.

  1. what a tempting shot ^^
    Ah, I wish Surabaya have more Mexican restaurant. It's hard to find one here
    There's only two that I know of, and both are not that great

    1. albert chandra: too bad... hope that there'll be good Mexican restaurants in Surabaya. Btw, here in Jakarta, mostly are Tex-Mex instead of authentic Mexican restaurants ;)

    2. I'll gladly take it
      here it's just something made to look like taco, with no jalapenos and other mexican cuisine seasonings, just a hot dog / burger in taco disguise
