In a couple of days, the roadside fruit and veg market near the Pertamina Wharf will be gone. Its underway right now. That quaint dream of brunch at Thai Pavilion prior to fruit and veg shopping (including delicatessen items) is no more. Even the Thai Pavilion has made way for the Aru Cafe.
The Aru Cafe actually looks like a cafe by day with an outdoor servery on the balcony. Menu is “Asian fusion”, juices are excellent. Who knows what the view across the road will be like soon.
And on views across the road, the Aribu Resort Hotel down near Ocean View Hotel is ever so slowly taking shape. There will be a huge 1st floor balcony bar/restaurant (I think) overlooking the sea. Maybe next year.
Nautilus seafood restaurant is still under final fit-out. Can’t be much longer now.
