I was very curious when I’ve heard about the Business Lunch Set Menu (IDR 220.000++) available at Lyon, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Jakarta. Very reasonable price for such a high-end restaurant. So like any enthusiastic foodie, I rushed there as soon as I can. The set menu consisted of an appetizer, one choice of main course and one dessert. The food here still holds up it’s reputable quality, taste and presentation.

 

Appetizer:

Cream of Tomato Soup: Basil pestou and vegetable lavosh. Creamy tomato soup with a Middle Eastern style cracker.Delicious.

Beetroot and Orange Salad: Greek Peta cheese, orange segment, Raspberry, spinach and balsamic reduction. Fresh looking and tasting too. A little to acidic for me but a great way to refresh your tastebud before a heavy meal.

 

Main Course:

Veal Leg Blanquette with spring vegetables: Veal leg cooked in a French ragout of white meat cooked in a white stock or water with aromatic flavorings. The veal itself is super tender it melts in your mouth.

Fillet of Barramundi “Dieppoise” with Bouchot mussels and green asparagus: Barramundi garnished with sauce made with crayfish tails and mussels served with white wine sauce.

Free Range Chicken with Kabocha squash, mushrooms and rocket leaves: Very tender white meat chicken, perfectly seasoned.

 

Dessert:

Valrhona Guanaja: Grand Cru chocolate with Raspberry. Moist cake with strong chocolate flavor made perfect with flavorful raspberry. It’s a shame that the size was to tiny for me.
