Last call for djakarta bali

Where Paris - - Dining Advertorial -

In the heart of Paris, in the neigh­bour­hood of the Lou­vre, which is in con­stant trans­for­ma­tion and just a stone’s throw from where the Pin­ault col­lec­tion will re­side, one finds the Djakarta Bali, which rep­re­sents, with tal­ent, the gas­tron­omy of Indonesia. With ob­jects from Java, Su­ma­tra, Bali and other gems from the ar­chi­pel­ago, like the teak fur­ni­ture and the lava stonewalls, the sound of the game­lan and the fra­grance of white flow­ers, you are trans­ported in­stan­ta­neously to Indonesia! In an el­e­gant, flam­boy­ant set­ting the am­bi­ence is per­fect for con­tem­pla­tion, cosy lunch and ro­man­tic din­ner.

TRA­DI­TION IN MODER­NITY

The culi­nary recipes are pre­pared au­then­ti­cally with fresh prod­ucts and spices from the ar­chi­pel­ago: cur­cuma, galangga, gin­ger and lemon grass whose virtues are recog­nised. Bring­ing to­gether medic­i­nal and gus­ta­tory qual­i­ties, spices re­flect an an­ces­tral art of liv­ing that is once again tak­ing cen­tre stage.

Opt for the tast­ing menu also known as “ri­jsttafel” and you will en­joy myr­iad dishes that are very colour­ful and very tasty. And then there are the icons: the chicken sa­tay in peanut sauce, the ren­dang, a beef spe­cial­ity that is sim­mered for five hours in co­conut milk (this dish was quite sim­ply se­lected as the best dish in the world by the read­ers of CNN Travel) and nasi goreng, In­done­sian fried rice.

For a quick bite or lunch in the of­fice all of their best sell­ers are avail­able as take out. On Fri­day nights there is a show of Ba­li­nese dance in shim­mer­ing colours to the sound of the game­lan. The meal comes to an end with a fresh lemon grass herbal tea or an Ara­bica cof­fee from Pa­pua. The chal­lenge has been suc­cess­fully met: the Djakarta Bali is a fine am­bas­sador for Indonesia. Let’s get a ticket right now for tonight and fly Djakarta-Bali. Djakarta Bali Tues-Sun Lunch & Din­ner 9 rue Vauvil­liers (1st), 01 45 08 83 11 www.djakarta-bali.com
