DA MAN - - Eats + Drinks -

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.
