Jakarta's weekend brunchers were treated to the news of the best kind when Bali's own Sisterfields and Expat Roasters paid Cassis Kitchen a visit in the epic pop-up brunch event.
After their rebrand from fine-dining establishment to hip urban eatery, Cassis Kitchen has been upping the ante for Jakarta’s in-the-know foodies and tastemakers. Last month, they launched their Tasting Table series, an exciting food event that features top chefs and international restaurants from out of town. We were lucky enough to get a taste for ourselves when Chef Jethro and Chef Kevin of Sisterfields, the purveyors of excellent brunch food in Bali’s hippest ‘hood, made a guest appearance in the city.
The Sisterfields squad teamed up with the coffee connoisseurs of Expat Roaster to show hungry Jakartans just how weekend brunch should be done. Their killer all-day menu featured fan favourites like their Acai Berry Bowl, Eggs Benedict, Textured Banana, and their powerful Pop Corn Chicken.
We started with the stalwarts of brunch: their famous Eggs Benedict. Their soft and creamy poached egg, topped off with fancy salmon and tasty hollandaise sauce, is what wonderful mornings are made of. To balance it out, we also got their Acai Berry Bowl, which have risen up through the ranks of healthy food stardom (and are practically Insta-famous in their own right!) because what’s not to love? Not only are Sisterfields’ acai bowls picture perfect, the combination of bittersweet granola and coffee honey is the best! Next, we ordered up the Textured Banana, a perfect combination of banana and cocoa, with wafer, milk foam and granola. Loved the soft and crispy textures. And as if we weren’t stuffed enough, we managed to squeeze in the Pop Corn Chicken, with delicious wasabi aioli that we could not get enough of! If the brunch doesn’t have you feeling sunny in the weekend, we don’t know what will.
Missed the Sisterfields pop-up brunch? Fret not, as Cassis Kitchen is hosting the next Tasting Table series on 29 – 30 September 2016, featuring Chef Pancho of Taste of Argentina in a two-day dinner-only event. For reservations call +62 21 5794 1500 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
