Hen­shin at The Westin Jakarta

Exquisite Taste - - Up Close & Personal -

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.
