August 30th, 2017. I was invited to Lobo Restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta. Evidently, now they have Business Lunch on weekdays.
Last year, Lobo Restaurant, The Ritz-Carton Jakarta, Mega Kuningan was very proud to welcome Chef Jan Schwittalla on board as the restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine. The Chef with Michelin-starred headed the culinary team of the Restaurant and Lounge which is located in the hotel’s lobby, where he crafts stand out French-inspired gastronomic creations to delight Jakarta’s most discerning gourmands.
“With the creativity and experience in a Michelin-starred restaurant, Chef Jan will set to elevate Lobo’s dining experience to new heights and of course bring back the love for Lobo among fine culinary lovers” said Rudolph Blattler, hotel’s Executive Chef. The German born Chef’s gastronomic journey has taken him to some of the most exquisite restaurants from Germany to his Michelin-starred restaurant in Bordeaux, France.
Well, they wanna show to people that Michelin Star dishes are very affordable. Yaaaay. So below I will share to you what the Business Lunch looked like. Hope you enjoy the simple review.
black crab bisque
curry | cashew nuts | cilantro | sesame oil | ginger | lemongrass
snapper | octopus | honey clam | red bell pepper | saffron
chocolate | cream | sour cherry coulis
After I tried all of the menu, I had my favourite right away. The bouillabaisse caught my heart all of a sudden with the flavour and the texture. The black crab bisque was a little too salty for me. And I prefer more crab meat hahaha. Well, everybody loved the black forest, but I prefer it to be sweeter LOL. For the amuse bouche, pre-appetizer and pre-dessert, we all loved them.
Thank you so much Lobo, The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta and Chef Jan Schwittalla for the lovely business lunch. Fyi, the price for 2 courses 288k; price for 3 courses 388k. Don’t think too much, just go there for your business lunch with your colleagues.
