Diners in Jakarta with a penchant for a taste of France don’t have to travel far, as they can find a little Lyon in the heart of the capital city. Appropriately named Lyon, the restaurant is located at the iconic hotel Mandarin Oriental, Jakarta. In true French fashion, the dining destination is tastefully designed with classy cane-back chairs, a colour scheme of ivory and wood tones, as well as an overall timeless, elegant vibe.
The skilful culinary team has prepared an à la carte menu, however, for an elevated experience, opt for the prix fixe menu, carefully crafted daily. Kick-off your culinary trip to France with Escargot de Bourgogne served with parsley and garlic butter and grilled ciabatta, and Bouillabaisse with fresh seafood, rouille sauce and baguette. The pan-seared foie gras is lush and balanced with prune chutney, pickled plum and candied walnut to be spread on house-made brioche.
Go Mediterranean with the Angel Hair Aglio Olio with tiger prawns, scallops and mussels, or opt for the Truffle Mushroom Risotto. Diners with quite the appetite should not miss the steak selection. The 250-gram 200-day grain-fed Angus Rib Eye is an all-time favourite, served with the sauce and sides of your liking. Check with the host for the Japanese wagyu cut-of-the-day for a melt-in-your-mouth sensation.
No French culinary adventure is complete without an array of refined desserts. Incorporating local ingredients into French sweet treats, the dessert menu at Lyon is one to remember. Try the Profiterole Au Chocolate with Balinese vanilla ice cream and Maluku walnuts, or the Crème Brûlée with Sulawesi vanilla.
