“It is an admirable move to open the first fine-dining restaurant in Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta. The district is predominan­tly known for its myriad of casual, home-cooked style local eateries. Every dish at Elise stands out for its clever combinatio­n of classic French technique and Indonesian flavour.” IG: @elise.jkt


“Helmed by chef Arief Tonggeng, Jowa is a new Korean-American dining destinatio­n in South Jakarta. With its sleek and chic ambience, it marries comfort food with vibrant Korean flair, a homage to LA’s Koreatown.”
