Seed Restaurant is Kemang’s newest addition to its array of cute little brunch spots. This all-day dining restaurant is situated right on Kemang Raya, and has already attracted a number of food lovers with its simple, modern design and delicious food.

Seed is founded by three sisters whose passion for food and travel ignited the idea of creating an eclectic brunch restaurant with a menu inspired from food
all over the world. Chef Guntur, the restaurant’s

head chef, studied culinary in Australia and uses his travel experience to create dishes that are sure to excite the palate. Kale on Eggs is one of Seed’s favorites – it is served with a sunflower seed puree, poached eggs and a home-made seed bar made of flax, pumpkin, sunflower seeds and oats, with enough calcium for your daily needs. The eight-hour slow cooked Umami Beef Cheek is also exceptional if you are looking for something heavier. For those who miss a comforting fried chicken with a modern twist, Seed’s Mexican Chicken & Waffle will not disappoint!

When asked about the meaning behind Seed, the founder shared, “The smallest of all seeds, a mustard seed, when sown in a fertile soil will bloom into a large tree - a home for the birds to come and make nests in its branches.” Seed hopes to make the local neighbourhood feel like they’re home and a part of the family.

The design of the restaurant prioritises comfort, to coincide with the concept of feeling at home. It was inspired by the modern Scandinavian style, using intricate details in a clean manner and much of natural light. The sophisticated Panda White marbled bar is at the centre of the space, with its grey, white, black and natural wood scheme apparent throughout the area. There are curved finishes all around, such as the rounded glass windows and curved tables and chairs – these organic shapes were intended to evoke a natural flow throughout the space.

Several murals created by Indonesian illustrator, Sanchia, are all over the walls of the restaurant. Each mural illustrates
the story of Seed itself, where a seed transforms into a place where animals find their food and habitat. Whether it’s for an intimate dinner with a loved one or a short coffee break with friends, Seed is the place to be.
