Privy Dharmawangsa, South Jakarta

Bahasa l English

Good news for me when I see the development of the high-end dining business in Jakarta is expanding. In this season, Privy Dharmawangsa opened a branch in Jakarta for the first time, more precisely in Dharmawangsa Square, South Jakarta. As the name implies Privy which in English means private or secret, this restaurant really provides an exclusive and intimate atmosphere. Once you enter on the 1st floor, there will be a greeter who will take you up to the restaurant through the elevator.

On normal days they just open for dinner time, where an elegant, classic, and luxurious feel is felt in this restaurant. For space capacity that is not too large, according to the concept it will provide an intimate and exclusive dining experience. Privy Dharmawangsa serves dishes with modern Italian American inspiration. Take note, it's not an authentic Italian restaurant, so if you want to eat pizza, it would be not the best option to go here. 😆
But you can still enjoy a variety of pasta with a modern touch that suits the appetite of the community in Jakarta. One of the unique must menus such as Linguine Pescatore Alla Jokowi, an interesting story behind the dish with the name of the President of Indonesia. This menu was indeed made for President Jokowi when attending an event in the past. Pasta with various seafood such as clams, shrimp, and calamari. Then tomato-based sauce and Calabrian chili sauce which gives it a spicy taste. Here you can imagine a mixed taste between Italy and Indonesia.

The main menu that is recommended is the steak selection. With a fairly complete selection of meat and premium quality. Both dry-age and non-dry-age are available. We know that meat that goes through the dry-age process, especially after 28 days, produces meat that is super tender and has a tempting aroma. There is a price for quality, one of the terms that are often used in accordance with this dish. Rib-eye done 28 days dry-aged is satisfying. The perfect tender texture and just the right aroma. 
Not only the main course but there are also side dishes that are quite interesting to me. 15 hour Potatoes, sounds simple, a dish made from potatoes. But what about processing potatoes up to 15 hours? Well, going through a long process and with detailed techniques at first glance it looks like a cake-shaped fried potato, but once try it, there are dozen of thin layers of potatoes. The consistency of the thin slices of potatoes makes the experience even more impressive.

Overall the dining experience here is memorable with a comfortable, luxurious atmosphere according to my standards. All the dishes that I enjoy can be a recommendation when you visit there. A modern style that suits the tastes of Jakarta society and is familiar. Don't forget to try the unique and delicious cocktail creations from professional bartenders, besides they serve cocktails with beautiful presentations. For service, it might be better with improvements from serving timings that are not too rushed, and more precise arrangement of cutlery. Prices are relatively high, maybe you can spend from IDR 500K per person for dinner here.

Bahasa l English A sunny weekend where the pandemic conditions in Indonesia have been getting better lately. Activities in public spaces are getting normal, so we can find some places with crowds. One of them is this restaurant which took a few weeks for me to make a reservation in advance because it was full every weekend. The Langham Jakarta has only been operating this year and has attracted great enthusiasm from Jakarta's community.

As soon as you pass through this area, you can clearly see the Black Owl with a black building with an owl logo on it. Seen the parking area is quite large and still not too crowded during the day. Once inside, we will pass through a hallway with a very high ceiling. My suggestion is it's best to make a reservation in advance to save your table. Black Owl comes with a restaurant and bar concept, a very stunning interior with dominant dark colors such as black and dark wooden material throughout the large room. The dim lights look calm and elegant, and what's amazing is the giant LCD screen that stretches to the ceiling. There
