Henshin at The Westin Jakarta
One of the hottest dining destinations in Jakarta, Henshin features exotic Japanese-Peruvian delights crafted by acclaimed Peruvian-native Chef Hajime Kusuga. Since opening its doors in late July this year, Henshin has claimed its spot as one of the most popular rooftop bar-restaurants. With dazzling views from the highest dining destination in Jakarta, modernistic ultra-luxurious interiors and epicurean culinary creations, it’s easy to see why Henshin is popular amongst Jakarta’s socialites and luminaries.
Access to Henshin is available via a highspeed private lift in The Westin Jakarta’s lobby. Visitors to Henshin are greeted by an artistic wall of transparent sake containers which reflects the colourful strobe lights of the lounge choreographed to the uber cool house music. A full-service bar occupies the main lounge area, where guests are encouraged to pull up a bar stool and have a chat with Henshin’s friendly mixologists who are always eager to introduce their latest concoctions. Guests who are keen to check out the city’s picturesque skyline can enjoy their exotic libations at the al fresco area, which comes with an outdoor bar. While enjoying the heady potations, guests are encouraged to order the signature Japanese-Peruvian ceviches and tiraditos – delightful one-bite flavour bombs which are perfect for sharing.
Henshin’s second floor features a modernistic open-kitchen concept, designed to encourage diners to have a chat with Henshin’s talented chefs to learn more about Nikkei cuisine. Guests can watch Henshin’s skilled chefs slice slabs of marbled airflown tuna, sear fresh slivers of octopus and whip up a batch of tantalising housemade indonikkei sambal. The Lomito roll is a must-try menu item, a scrumptious creation featuring beef tenderloin, onion tempura, red pepper, asparagus and chimichurri.
