Jakarta, as the culinary mecca of Indonesia, continually fascinates us with new dining places that’s fast and furiously creating a big buzz around town. The Italian fine dining by the name of ‘La Luce’ has just opened it’s door to public for about a week, already attracting many people, especially Jakarta’s most highly respected socialites and alike.
Located on the first floor of a newly (still finishing) office building on SCBD area, this restaurant didn’t look much from the outside, but as you stepped inside, the Fall colored (purple, orange, yellow) themed restaurant warmth your inner soul. The comfy booth seats, dining tables with freshly flower arrangements on every corner, open kitchen and bar, a private room with capacity of 20 people, created a nice place to relax and enjoy your meal with style.
Rucola Pollo Arrosto e Palmito (IDR 65.000): Rocket leaves,roasted chicken, hearts of palm,orange and mustard vinaigrette. Love the presentation! Delicious tangy sweet and sour dressing.
Capellini Alle Vongole (IDR 85.000): Angel hair, sunset clams, white wine sauce. A different look of clam Vongole pasta (without the shells). The taste was ok, but too bad they overcooked the garlic, it was a bit bitter.
Ravioli De Zucca (IDR 140.000):Ravioli with Pumpkin fillings. Very nice ravioli skin, freshly made,not too thin or too thick,and tasty too. Delicious sweet pumpkin filling,sauteed in simple browned butter and sage sauce.
Sogliola alla Mugnaia (IDR 290.000): Dover Sole fish,braised fennel,baby spinach,lemon and capers emulsion. Beautifully presented meal. You could really taste the freshness of the fish.
Trio al Cioccolato (IDR 85.000): Melted chocolate cake, mousse, bavaroise,pistachio ice cream. Fantastic chocolate cake, top quality of chocolate that you could really taste. Love the Pistachio ice cream too.
Tart’s (IDR 85.000):Three kinds of tarts: Lemon-Meringue,Strawberry-Chocolate,and Pineapple tarts. Fell head over heels on these tarts, the crust were fantastic and the fillings complimented the desserts.
