LA MODA

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

Oc­cu­py­ing a cen­tral berth on the ground floor of Jakarta’s uber-lux­u­ri­ous shop­ping des­ti­na­tion Plaza In­done­sia, La Moda of­fers a mod­ern restau­rant con­cept fea­tur­ing clas­sic Western favourites as well as unique cre­ations in­spired by In­done­sian spe­cial­ties. The restau­rant’s in­te­rior is taste­fully un­der­stated, with gen­er­ously spaced chic wooden fur­ni­tures, cheery green in­stal­ments and ex­panses of min­i­mal­is­tic ce­ramic floor­ings.

The restau­rant fea­tures an im­pres­sive wood­fired oven in which piz­zas are made to order, a wine rack with a cu­rated se­lec­tion of pre­mium im­ported wines, a bar from which visi­tors can en­joy unique cock­tails, as well as a de­lec­ta­ble pas­tries and cakes at the cof­fee bar.

La Moda’s seafood of­fer­ing fea­tures the best of lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional in­gre­di­ents with clas­sic crowd pleasers like tuna aglio olio as well as ex­quis­ite culi­nary cre­ations such as risotto frutti di mare – a de­lec­ta­ble dish of seafood risotto cooked in lob­ster bisque sauce, fin­ished by tart toma­toes and creamy parme­san cheese. The Ba­li­nese bar­ra­mundi comes highly rec­om­mended – an in­spired dish cooked to per­fec­tion served with tantalising tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese sam­bal matah, with sides of spinach and fluffy white rice. A spe­cial sig­na­ture dish that din­ers should book ahead to try is the asi­nan salmon salad. The clas­sic In­done­sian fruit salad dressed with spicy vine­gar sauce is ac­com­pa­nied by smoked salmon, which is made in-house.
