Simplicity at Its Best
Following the opening of Vong Kitchen, Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and his son Cédric are back with another establishment, a burger bar that’s appropriately called Le Burger ( AlilaSCBD,Lot11,Jl.Jendral SudirmanKav.52-53,Jakarta; +622150808788;leburgerbar.com). But don’t let the French-sounding name fool you into thinking that it is another fine-dining restaurant, as Le Burger is a casual, no-reservations-required establishment that is overwhelmingly unpretentious and straightforward. No eating a burger with a fork and knife here and each burger is named exactly after what they are. Case in point: Its most-buzzed-about Truffle Burger, where the patty is juicy, the truffle’s not overpowering and the buns are soft. Want something lighter? Try the shrimp burger. Top it off with the house’s choice of milkshakes and cocktails. And as it opens till 5 AM every Friday to Sunday, if you’re looking somewhere to eat after a night partying, this is the definitely the place to go to.
