Travel the world through some of its favourite cuisines at Jakarta’s new dining destination, Sugar & Spice.
The main dining venue at the InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah, Sugar & Spice has a light, homey feel and a vivacious atmosphere that draws diners into its welcoming space. Giving the feel of a group of delightful home kitchens, with six busy live stations and an abundance of counters piled high with tempting food, there is a distinct sense of family dining.
The focus is on incorporating the culture and culinary highlights of five continents and the daily breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet spreads achieve this in great style. Each of the five continents is well represented with a curated selection of dishes with widespread appeal. Indonesia is especially well represented with renowned hot dishes like beef rendang, popular regional and market favourites, as well as puppets guarding mountains of the vast island nation’s satays, all accompanied by the appropriate spicy sauce. The sweet counter also offers a good selection of local and international favourites.
Old-style terracotta dishes, gleaming copper, sizzling woks and steaming pans offer up all manner of dishes, including fragrant curries and breads, glistening noodles and roasts carved to order, while another bustling section serves freshly prepared sushi and sashimi. The weekend buffets add to the fun with trolleys bringing around signature dishes like smoked salmon and caviar and flaming crepe suzette.
In addition to the impressive buffet selections, there is an à la carte menu offering contemporary and comfort dishes with an elegant twist – like the sous-vide eggs in the crispy salads, the bite-sized club crab subs and the heirloom tomatoes. Hearty noodles, Asian specialities, elegant main courses and a sizzling grill section, plus a hidden private teppanyaki room, add to the plethora of choices available for connoisseurs of cuisines from around the world seeking high quality, authentic flavours.
Overlooking the elegance of The Lounge with its vivid art through floor-to-ceiling windows, the spacious dining area has seating areas large and small to gather with friends, dine intimately à deux or enjoy a family meal. Drinks range from coffees crafted from the exclusive InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah coffee blend, to the finest TWG teas, fresh juices and a selection of imported wines and spirits.
Sugar & Spice has hit the ground running and brings a breath of fresh air and elegance to Jakarta’s Pondok Indah area.
