Skill­fully pre­pared by Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Thierry Le Queau, the food at Lyon, Man­darin Ori­en­tal Jakarta, uses the finest and fresh­est in­gre­di­ents in each of its au­then­tic Gal­lic dishes in the best tra­di­tion of fine French cui­sine. As I en­ter the venue, I feel an el­e­gant at­mos­phere spread through­out ev­ery cor­ner of the restau­rant; ev­ery­thing is care­fully thought out to en­sure an ul­ti­mate fine-din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for each guest. For a starter, I chose de­li­cious Hokkaido Sea Scal­lop with Baerii Stur­geon Caviar, Pan seared Foie Gras and per­fectly cooked Es­car­got. They all tasted good and boosted my ap­petite for the main course, Coq au Vin, chicken cooked with mush­rooms, onions and light gravy. Sec­ond course is fresh Tas­ma­nian Sal­mon Fil­let with Green Peas and Wild Mush­rooms; it tasted re­ally good. But my favourite was pre­mium black an­gus steak “Au Poivre”. The steak was very juicy and it lit­er­ally melted in my mouth. For dessert, fresh, red berries with whipped cream and amaz­ingly de­li­cious prof­iteroles with co­coa nibs ice cream and warm choco­late sauce are hard to beat. Lyon also in­vites Miche­lin­starred chefs reg­u­larly to the restau­rant to share their in­cred­i­ble culi­nary tal­ent with guests, and on Satur­day it serves its fa­mous brunch, where guests can en­joy a wide range of de­lec­ta­ble main cour­ses from the a la carte menu, with break­fast dishes served from the food sta­tions. There are also op­tions for a business lunch set menu, which can be cus­tom­ized by re­quest.
