Culinary Journey with Tom Aikens, The Langham, Jakarta

Bahasa l English

It is a valuable experience when a chef from a Michelin star restaurant is present in the city of Jakarta. In this season, The Langham Jakarta is a 5-star luxury hotel with elegant interiors throughout the area. Tom's by Tom Aikens, a classy restaurant on the 62nd floor of the Langham Jakarta hotel. The Jakarta community is certainly pleased with the arrival of chef Tom from Muse, a restaurant with a Michelin Star award in London.

For restaurant information, you can check the article below, my first experience visiting this restaurant was when it was just opening.

The Langham Jakarta presents a dining concept with chef Tom this week from 22-26 April 2022. On this occasion, I tried the Sunday Roast experience on 24 April 2022. This Sunday event seems guests are filling up the restaurant area. The concept of lunch this time, guests are served with a set menu of 3 courses each.
The starters that I tried this time were Foie Gras & Chicken Liver Parfait, Grape Chutney, and French Brioche. The combination of foie gras and chicken liver with a soft mousse-like texture matches the parfait concept, a smoother taste that is pleasant to enjoy with sweet and sour chutney grape jam on top of crunchy brioche. The next starter is Yellow Ceviche, made of fresh fish with thin slices, combined with sour pickles and sliced ​​agave giving it a fresh taste. Good consistency of sliced ​​fish, the right aroma is really an appetizing starter.

The main menu that I tried, such as Prime Rib Roast, is a favorite dish that we often enjoy in typical British restaurants. From the presentation to the simple taste of steak, classic without garnish is the hallmark of Tom's. With US beef ingredients, for me, the taste is too strong and fatty so I don't really, enjoy it. Of course, this goes back to your preferences. Then there's Chilean Seabass, this Chilean fish usually found in high-end restaurants. Served with a thick sauce, the creamy and sour taste enhances the flavor.

In this part of the main course, guests are served with a variety of side dishes such as Yorkshire Pudding, Roast Potatoes, Roast Heritage Carrots, and Fine Beans to provide a balanced taste when enjoying the main course. A variety of classic British food, simple but delicious, especially the crispy and sweet Roast Carrots.

For dessert, I chose Vanilla Cheesecake with Raspberry. The presentation color of the cheesecake is whiter, and the taste is smoother, quite different from cheesecake in general. Then there's the Apple Almond Tart, it's one of the famous British classics. Crispy pastry texture and sweet caramelized apple can be enjoyed with lemon sorbet so that it gives a balanced taste.

A pleasant experience to be able to enjoy a variety of British specialties and classic flavors with a modern presentation. Dishes are not too complex, various ingredients with standard seasoning provide an experience to enjoy the original taste of these ingredients. The service at the beginning was quite good, the welcome was friendly, the time for serving food was fast, it was just that a few points of the staff lacked knowledge about the dishes, and some of the pronunciation of the food was needed to practice more.
