Li Feng

AT MAN­DARIN ORI­EN­TAL, JAKARTA

Exquisite Taste - - Best Chinese Restaurant : Jakarta -

Li Feng's eye for artis­tic pre­sen­ta­tion is ev­i­dent from the mo­ment guests en­ter the restau­rant and take in the sub­tle el­e­gance of the dé­cor, ev­ery last piece of which, in­clud­ing the chan­de­lier, is in­spired by the his­tor­i­cal spice trade be­tween China and Batavia.

This thought­ful style can also be seen in the art­ful plat­ing of the dishes, the most famed of which is the fre­quently pho­tographed deep-fried swan dumplings with black pep­per duck meat, which ar­rive at the ta­ble in swirls of mist as though swim­ming on a pond on an early spring morn­ing.

The tempt­ing menu at Man­darin Ori­en­tal, Jakarta's Li Feng was cre­ated by celebrity chef Huang Jing Hui, popularly known as Chef Fei, who helms one-Miche­lin star

Jiang at Man­darin Ori­en­tal, Guangzhou, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Li Feng's Ex­ec­u­tive Chi­nese Chef Chang See Loy. To­gether their in­spi­ra­tion and cre­ativ­ity have come up with an ex­ten­sive choice of clas­sic Can­ton flavours along­side con­tem­po­rary cre­ations such as the long-term favourite crispy fried fish skin with salted egg sauce. New­com­ers to the menu in­clude chilled ro macai roll with Szechuan-style peanut sauce and deep­fried smoked cod with five spice pow­der, as well as the sat­is­fy­ingly warm al­mond and black sesame dumplings with peanuts.

The el­e­gant restau­rant also has three dis­tinc­tive, so­phis­ti­cated pri­vate din­ing rooms for in­ti­mate gather­ings and pri­vate cel­e­bra­tions.
