Since 2019, MDA Restaurant­s group has successful­ly introduced fickle Jakartans to dry-aged steaks at Aged + Butchered, Mediterran­ean flavours through Animale, and an elevated Mexican-Peruvian cuisine at Carbón. With Wabi-Sabi, executive chef Andri Dionysius presents his brazen take of Japanese cuisine in an urban zen garden setting.
