Sometimes, great food is what transports us back to our childhood days with familiar yet distant tastes. And this is exactly what the new Union Café ( LowerGroundFloor,SenayanCity,Jakarta;+6221 72781145;unionjkt.com) is all about. In short, Union Café is an Indonesian and Indonesian-Chinese restaurant where dishes insinuate an evocative, yet romantic feel. Case in point: the Scallop Bakwan Jagung with peanut sauce and the zesty Nasi Bebek Garing, which is served with sambal and Garlic Rice. The hot Crispy Teri Aglio Alio with Garlic Confit and Cabe Rawit is another prime example of Indonesian food with contemporary twists. Last but not least, the bakery offers five new cakes, including the creamy and solid Dadar Gulung Gula Melaka Cake that will most definitely hit home.
