Shraya Residence @ 2017 | private policy
Bunga Rampai is an Indonesian Restaurant that located in Menteng area, just around 200 meter from Shraya. At the beginning of their renovation process, turning from an antique colonial building house into a restaurant back in 2006, Bunga Rampai or the construction site (at that time) already caught my attention for its original architecture with unique Mansard roof*.
*Mansard roof, also called a French roof/curb roof characterized by two slopes on each of its sides with the lower slope, punctured by dormer windows, at a steeper angle than the upper.
Above is an image of the house in 1941, taken from Adolf Heuken SJ, Menteng - Kota Taman pertama di Indonesia, Jakarta.
I was visiting the optic shop in Jakarta Eye Center just across the street (at that time, back in 2006). The optician said, “They are renovating the old house turn it into a restaurant”, when I asked. I was intrigued. When they open the restaurant in 2007, it was instantly became one of those place that I love. The experience to dine in Bunga Rampai is delightful. Most of it are because of their exquisite interior (and the architecture of course) and the food. If you tempted to try out Bunga Rampai, there’s nothing wrong to call first, they frequently got booked the whole place for corporates gathering or other event. And do try their Luwak coffee, it’s divine. As for the food, I’ve tasted many of their dishes and never disappoints me. They were adding second and third storey in 2013. Here are some pictures of Bunga Rampai...
With the new decoration after they got renovated in 2013, I was looking for particular painting on their wall. Here it is..(below) the Putri Bunga Rampai or Putri Nusantara. Lovely isn’t she?
Why I was interested with this mural painting? The artist, is a talented young man, who live in the island of Gods. He is Agung Iskandar Zulkarnaen, a Javanese that was born and lives in Bali. To paint this mural art, he stayed at Shraya Residence for nearly a month. He loves to paint, and focused in mural art since 2010. -SK-
