Exquisite Taste - - Sumptuous Seafood: Jakarta -


In the heart of the bustling Pantai In­dah Kapuk area is Mer­cure Jakarta, home to the ca­sual, wel­com­ing NSNTR restau­rant. With clean, mod­ern lines and views across Jakarta Bay and across to the city, this is a pop­u­lar venue for both ho­tel and walk-in guests keen to try the ex­cel­lent dishes on the menu. Cel­e­brat­ing the culi­nary di­ver­sity of the In­done­sian is­lands, along­side some clas­sic in­ter­na­tional choices, the evoca­tive menu is packed with exotic flavours of­fered in shar­ing plates, rice and noo­dle dishes, as well as a range of meat and seafood se­lec­tions. For groups look­ing to dine fam­ily-style, there are flex­i­ble set menus to sate any ap­petite.

Among the de­lec­ta­ble choices are hum­ble street foods like gado-gado, tahu telor and batagor, how­ever, with close prox­im­ity to Jakarta’s pri­mary fish mar­ket, the seafood here is ex­cel­lent. Re­gional spe­cial­ties in­clude the de­light­fully tasty mar­i­nated, grilled tuna steak served with dabu-dabu sam­bal, a Manado-style tomato salsa, as well as spicy stir-fried prawns Mi­nang-style, while an in­ter­na­tional dish not to be missed is the salmon en croute with its light puff pas­try, mush­room, spinach fill­ing and truf­fle mashed potato. A gor­geous spe­cial order is the east-west mar­riage of Spaghetti Gu­lai Udang – the spaghetti be­ing the per­fect foil for the light curry sauce, while the juicy whole prawns add the per­fect sweet­ness.

All the dishes have been crafted to suit the de­mand­ing tastes of hun­gry food­ies, us­ing high-qual­ity in­gre­di­ents and spices from the lo­cal mar­kets. If you still have room, try the lo­cal desserts, like co­conut and cin­na­mon pud­ding, banana frit­ters with honey, choco­late and cheese and the fra­grant Es Cen­dol Durian.
