Exquisite Cantonese Flavour, T'ang Court Jakarta

  Bahasa l English As a fan of high-end dining, it's good news for me when a restaurant brand that has received a Michelin Star award in Hong Kong opens a branch in Jakarta. Precisely at Hotel Langham Jakarta, T'ang Court is a Cantonese Chinese restaurant located on the 61st floor with stunning views of Jakarta's skyline from a magnificent height. Compared to T'ang Court in Hong Kong, the interior is completely different. Elegant, and modern, playing with elements such as wood, marble, and bright colors on the chairs. In every corner, there is a shelf with a plate display with a beautiful bird pattern. The atmosphere is quiet even though I came there at lunchtime on the weekend seen 2-3 tables seated. The capacity of public space is also not too big, but according to the information they provide a large number of private rooms. The concept of the T'ang Court restaurant menu itself is quite familiar to me, who has been fond of high-end restaurants both in town and a

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. But you can see below, there is so much elegant touch, the golden colour throughout the restaurant show it is high-end dining including with a bar. 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

Chef Marinka's Saturday Brunch, Asia Restaurant, The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta

Bahasa l English Good news this month with the presence of Chef Marinka in collaboration with Asia Restaurant, which is located at the Ritz Carlton Jakarta, Mega Kuningan area. It's no stranger, of course, to chef Marinka, who is an Indonesian celebrity chef who was the judge of the Masterchef Junior competition in the last season and also other television shows. In October 2022, guests can enjoy a variety of chef Marinka's signature dishes and even meet and greet with chef Marinka. This collaboration is carried out from now until the end of December 2022, where you can book Asia Restaurant every Saturday with a variety of buffet dishes and all-you-can-eat. Here you will find a section that presents menus created by chef Marinka. In early October I had the opportunity to taste some of the dishes that were inspired by chef Marinka from her grandmother's recipes passed down in the family. Comfort Indonesian specialties such as hasank salad, steamed cuppa beef, satay, and spi
