The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Mega Kuningan welcomes Chef Jan Schwittalla
Regulars of The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Mega Kuningan will be familiar with Lobo Restaurant's latest addition to its pool of culinary talent. A German native, Chef de Cuisine Jan Schwittalla started his culinary journey at the tender age of 19, learning classical French techniques and honing his skills in Michelin-starred kitchens in France and Germany before joining Lobo Restaurant as chef de cuisine. A pragmatic and inventive chef, Chef Jan's focuses on quality seasonal ingredients meticulously sourced locally and internationally such as Lombok's prized seafood and air-flown European truffles.
First-time diners at Lobo Restaurant are urged to try the chef's tasting menu, in which diners can appreciate Chef Jan's breadth of experience in four to six dishes highlighting classical French techniques with unique innovations. One dish featured in the tasting menu is the egg onsen – a perfectly cooked onsen egg sits in the bottom of a crisp potato tower containing truffle and porcini duxelle. A perfectionist by nature, Chef Jan's emphasis on both the aesthetics of his dishes and its taste promises to delight diners at Lobo Restaurant.
