A Taste of Home

DA MAN - - Eats+Drinks -

There’s a new restau­rant in town which, in­ter­est­ingly, of­fers a de­lec­ta­ble spread of old-school fa­vorites. Roemah Toean Pe ( Jl.Ke­mangRaya No.2,Jakarta; +62217183417) fea­tures an eclec­tic menu based on the fa­vorite fla­vors of the man be­hind it, Mr. Pa­trick Wid­jaja—who, by the way, is also be­hind Die Stube. There’s a clas­sic take on the ever-pop­u­lar fu yung hai, roast pi­geon which is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly hard to find in Jakarta, frog legs and many more dishes from the city’s rich Chi­nese-In­done­sian cul­tural heritage along with a touch of Dutch cook­ing. All this is then wrapped in a quaint in­te­rior rem­i­nis­cent of Jakarta’s old town for a truly nos­tal­gic din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
