Perched on The Plaza's 46th floor with stunning cityscape views across Jakarta, the elegant, buzzing Momozen is home to a modern Japanese menu with significant French twists, including copious amounts of luscious fresh truffles! The brainchild behind this menu of wonders is celebrity Chef Sho Naganuma, famed for his appearances on the Asian Food Channel. Chef Sho has a contemporary view of Japanese food, creating a menu divided into snacks, tapas, rice claypots and mains, as well as pastas and desserts. You'll find plenty of wagyu steak, foie gras, seafood imported from the famed Tsukiji market and, of course, truffles.
Look for the chef's recommendations and monthly specials on the menu and indulge your taste buds on treats like the wonderful truffle donabe gohan – fresh truffle rice prepared to order in a claypot that arrives steaming at your table, when fresh truffles are shaved generously across the top. There is also the option to add wagyu beef, grilled foie gras or truffle scrambled egg, making a sublime dish even more heavenly. Meanwhile, perfect for the carnivores in your dining party is a recent dish on the menu, wagyu yaki-suki. Choose from
