The lat­est hap­pen­ings, from stylish events to ho­tel and restau­rant open­ings, swanky wine din­ners to ap­point­ments, keep­ing you in the loop.

The stylish AYANA Mid­plaza, JAKARTA is of­fer­ing a new ur­ban es­cape with its re­cently opened, beau­ti­ful new din­ing venue, Blue Ter­race. This hot new spot is vi­brantly colour­ful with a strong gar­den feel. Each of the three dis­tinct sec­tions are cov­ered with multi-hued flow­ers on ta­bles, walls and hang­ing from the ceil­ing, while a sparkling chan­de­lier is clearly in­spired by rain drops fall­ing from a tree branch. Din­ers can perch at the com­mu­nal ta­ble to sip on a cof­fee or fresh juice as they par­take in a sin­ful but healthy dessert, eat out on the ter­race or take an in­door seat in the air-con­di­tioned court­yard-style din­ing area. Wher­ever they choose, sooth­ing green­ery and cheer­ful blooms add to the al­lure.

A glass case is filled with tempt­ing bites to take away or eat in, with bowls of vi­brant salad, tempt­ing sand­wiches, as well as in­dul­gent cakes and desserts. Ev­ery­thing clev­erly in­cor­po­rates health­boost­ing in­gre­di­ents, Asian spices and ex­otic flavours to el­e­vate the mood, while en­hanc­ing en­ergy and brain power.

Serv­ing all day, healthy food has never tasted so good; we rec­om­mend the panseared yel­low fin tuna with quinoa and veg­gie salad, quail egg and can­dlenut pesto dress­ing, as well as the seared salmon with mush­room, crushed potato, ex­tra vir­gin olive oil, tomato salsa and basil. Mean­while, the Green God­dess bowl is packed with chicken, kale, spinach, av­o­cado, olives and pine nuts, sea­soned with nutty sesame Ja­panese dress­ing. Ev­ery dish is beau­ti­fully pre­sented, many with colour­ful herbs and ed­i­ble flow­ers as gar­nish.

The de­light­ful of­fer­ings on the dessert menu are highly in­ven­tive with temp­ta­tions such as Earl Grey Mille Crepe, Corn Cake and Yam Berry Cake. The range of healthy drinks is just as bright as the food, adding to the over­all re­ju­ve­na­tion promised by the de­lec­ta­ble fare at Blue Ter­race. ayana­jakarta.com
