When it comes to casual dining in a venue where you can relax with friends from lunchtime until late while indulging a love of good food and a few glasses of wine or a cocktail or two, BAE by Socieaty has it wrapped. Found beneath bustling Senayan City, this is a restaurant started by friends, built by friends and that continues to be driven by people sharing their passion for providing wonderful experiences. With a location that lends itself perfectly to friends from across the city gathering to catch up and a menu that satisfies all kinds of palates, BAE has become popular among Jakartans.
The menu is compact and thoughtful, offering plenty of nibbles – including the highly moreish cassava nachos and Mom’s risolles – and a selection of salads, pastas, pizzas, mains, Asian favourites and prime steaks. Chef Robert Veendendaal serves up fresh modern takes on the classics, including his homage McBAE burger, alongside locally inspired food like wagyu fried rice and the dazzling bebek matah. Incorporating Bali into every bite, the sous-vide duck breast goes perfectly with the sambal matah, garlic fried rice, crispy onsen egg, cucumber, tomato and tempura crumbs for a filling meal. Meanwhile, on monthly Crustacean Day, dive into the caramelized butter crab and prepare to get messy. Lightly caramelized with garlic and shallots, it is hugely popular. There are plenty of well-priced wines to enjoy, as well as other delicious libations and some tasty desserts.
