THE JA­PANESE @ SARI PA­CIFIC JAKARTA

Exquisite Taste - - Sumptuous Seafood: Jakarta - (sari­paci­fic­jakarta.com)

Lovers of Ja­panese food would be well-ad­vised to drop by The Ja­panese @ Sari Pa­cific Jakarta, the ho­tel’s newly re­branded Ja­panese restau­rant for­merly known as Keyaki Ja­panese Restau­rant. At The Ja­panese @ Sari Pa­cific Jakarta, guests can savour fresh pre­mium seafood metic­u­lously sourced from the ho­tel’s se­lect sup­pli­ers and pre­pared by the restau­rant’s tal­ented culi­nary team.

Oc­cu­py­ing a cosy space to the right of the ho­tel’s lobby, The Ja­panese @ Sari Pa­cific Jakarta wel­comes visi­tors with lush trop­i­cal plants and a hand­some re­cep­tion area. Through the en­trance, visi­tors are led into a contemporary din­ing space with ori­en­tal touches. The din­ing room fea­tures ex­pan­sive hard­wood floor­ing and charm­ing Ja­panese lanterns hang­ing from the lofted open-beam ceil­ing. Visi­tors can choose be­tween rows of soft-fur­nished fine-din­ing seat­ing for more for­mal oc­ca­sions, as well as bar seat­ing for those ea­ger to have a chat with the sushi chefs.

The Ja­panese @ Sari Pa­cific Jakarta’s food pro­gram is mas­ter­minded by Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Masami Okamoto, a vet­eran chef with more than 20 years of ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing in il­lus­tri­ous kitchens across Europe and Asia. To start off your meal, the crab meat salad is a rec­om­mended item – thin cu­cum­ber strips, sliced crab sticks and inari skin are tossed in house-made may­on­naise sauce and topped with to­biko and crispy salmon skin. Our favourite is the deep-fried prawn with kimi sauce. The bat­ter-fried prawn is coated in a rich and umami salted egg sauce, ac­com­pa­nied with fried salmon skin and fried per­illa leaf. For mains, order the kaisen miso gratin. A seafood med­ley of king prawns, crab meat, oc­to­pus and white fish paired with broc­coli, sweet corn and shi­itake mush­room and com­bined with white miso sauce be­fore be­ing grilled in the oven.
