Tantalize your taste buds at Rasa Restaurant
Rasa, which means “taste” in the Indonesian language, is InterContinental Jakarta MidPlaza’s all-day dining restaurant. Rasa is modern, simple, clean and luxurious, with traditional Javanese touches, such as the batik patterns in the lattice panelling and carvings taken from traditional Indonesian architecture incorporated in the columns. Sungkai wood is the most prominent design material in the restaurant. The large reception table was crafted from recycled wood, while the family-sized long wooden table inside the restaurant features custom glass coloured bullets, enhancing the overall design.
Rasa incorporates an open-plan kitchen with live cooking stations for greater interaction between guests and the team of creative chefs. An island kitchen, a central focus point of the restaurant, was created using white marble elements. Rasa is defined by its daily buffet of international dishes and authentic Asian specialties, displayed with a modern twist. There is a distinct emphasis on market-fresh ingredients, seasonal delicacies and themed dining events in accordance with the holiday calendar.
The menu has anticipated the various culinary preferences of its International guests with dishes cooked to order from a hot wok, open grill and tandoor oven. A Japanese counter prepares sushi, sashimi and other bite-sized luxuries. Local cuisine is highlighted with favourite dishes from around the Indonesian archipelago.
Buffet selections are rotated on a regular basis and on any given day guests can expect food items from the West as well as India, China, Southeast Asia and beyond. High-end meats and seafood choices include Wagyu Beef, Lamb Chops, Veal, Red Snapper, Salmon, Sea Bass and more. All this is complemented by separate stations for fresh juices, appetizers, soups and home-baked breads and croissants, along with separate salad and dessert bars.
