A Charming Lyon
Mandarin Oriental, Jakarta
Jl. M.H. Thamrin Jakarta – Indonesia Phone. +62 21 2993 8824 www.mandarinoriental.com/jakarta As I enter Lyon at Mandarin Oriental, Jakarta I feel the elegant atmosphere spread over me. Every last detail has been carefully thought out to ensure the ultimate fine-dining experience for each guest. For a starter, I choose the delicious Hokkaido sea scallop with baerii sturgeon caviar, pan-seared foie gras and perfectly cooked escargot. It is the perfect opening salvo to the main course, coq au vin, chicken cooked with mushrooms, onions and a light gravy. The second course is the fresh Tasmanian salmon fillet with green peas and wild mushrooms. But my favourite is the premium black angus steak au poivre. The steak is juicy and meltes in my mouth. Dessert is fresh red berries with whipped cream and amazingly delicious profiteroles with cocoa nibs of ice cream and warm chocolate sauce. If you want the best of French cuisine, Lyon will tame your cravings.
