VONG Kitchen

Exquisite Taste - - Best Fine Dining : Jakarta -

Sit­u­ated in the iconic SCBD, Vong Kitchen at Alila SCBD Jakarta is a haunt for the city's dis­cern­ing gour­mands. Since its much-an­tic­i­pated grand open­ing in early 2018, Vong Kitchen has made a clean sweep of the ac­co­lades as one of the city's top fine-din­ing es­tab­lish­ments.

Vis­i­tors to Vong Kitchen are wel­comed into the chic and el­e­gant space past the restau­rant's hand­some bar. For those wait­ing for their fash­ion­ably late com­pan­ions, do pull up a stool by the el­lip­ti­cal mar­ble counter and treat your­self to the fan­tas­tic con­coc­tions cour­tesy of the restau­rant's in­ven­tive mixol­o­gist.

Once you're ready, pro­ceed to the mar­vel­lous main din­ing room, the bustling cen­tre of the es­tab­lish­ment. One side of the restau­rant is an el­e­gant lat­tice of win­dows with scenic views of the ver­dant SCBD, an­other side is the heart of the restau­rant – a state-ofthe-art mod­ern open kitchen. Don't let the grandeur of the space in­tim­i­date you, the food menu cu­rated by the Miche­lin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Von­gerichten and his son Cé­dric is ap­proach­able and best en­joyed with ad­ven­tur­ous friends. For starters, tuck into the de­light­ful foie gras brûlée, a unique and de­li­cious dish fea­tur­ing a flam­béed sugar- topped foie gras pâté served with pa­paya jam and rambu­tan. As for the main, the hearty 500g Aus­tralian rib eye is a good choice, while to close, or­der the chef's sig­na­ture molten choco­late cake, it might very well be the best dessert you've ever had.
