Another Level of Korean Grill BBQ, Surasang, PIK Jakarta

Bahasa l English Talking Korean BBQ is certainly not something new to Jakarta residents. Currently, we can find a wide selection of Korean grill restaurants from casual to all-you-can-eat at very affordable prices. But don't forget, for dishes made from meat ingredients, especially beef, the quality will be the main thing to pay attention to. There is a price of course there is quality. Surasang, you can guess from the name that this is a Korean restaurant. Located on Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta, which is one of the most popular culinary destinations. Surasang just opened its outlet on 31st Oct 2022. However, on my previous visit there some areas of the restaurant are still under construction and I did not take some of the interior pictures.

Therefore, I will immediately tell you about the dishes in Surasang. The concept of this restau

Japanese Michelin Star chef Takeover, Oku Japanese Restaurant

Bahasa l English It's been a pretty exciting week in October with the arrival of a chef from a 2 Michelin Star restaurant in Japan to be precise in Kanazawa, a regional capital on main Honshu island. Chef Shinichiro Takagi, from Zeniya is a legacy from his late father. On this occasion, chef Takagi-san collaborated with Oku Japanese Restaurant to offer the experience of enjoying the dishes by Michelin Star restaurant chefs that we have often heard about in the global cuisine world. This week I chose lunch with a 4 course set menu on Saturday. Well, even in this special chef week, Oku Restaurant still provides a regular menu for guests. Let's go straight to the menu that I tried this time starting with the appetizer, Sakizuke. It's one of the popular Kaiseki dishes which is arguably the Amuse-Bouche in France. A beautiful pan-seared tuna dish with a mixture of chili vinegar. The soft texture of tuna with fresh sour dressing and edible leaves provides a balance of taste. Fol

Bahasa l English Finally, after a few months, I'm back to filling out articles on this blog. Since I'm currently recovering from a lung infection medication has had a major impact on my activities. This time I will tell you about the experience of having dinner at a restaurant located in the newest luxury 5-star hotel in Jakarta, Park Hyatt Jakarta. This hotel just started operating in the middle of this year, there are several restaurant outlets that you can try as well as bars & lounges.

Each area offers a different concept and atmosphere.
