The Jakarta Society is certainly very excited to welcome this great culinary event to be held from 16-19 November 2017 in Senayan City, South Jakarta. JCF will take place with many tenants and interesting culinary activities. Well, on the night of November 15, I had the opportunity to attend Opening event which was attended by 6 Star Chef who joined in this JCF event.
The event was held at SKYE which is one of the highest rooftop restaurant in Jakarta. There is an outdoor-concept lounge area overlooking stunning Jakarta skyline, and there is also a large restaurant area with exclusive and elegant interiors. Dark colors dominate the whole restaurant, so it's dark enough at night to take pictures.
The 6 Star Chef here will serve every mainstay of their cuisine for customers. The atmosphere is quite crowded and enthusiastic so felt, while waiting for the first dish presented, i enjoy the stunning view from the 56th floor and I happen to get a spot near the window.
The first menu with the names Are They Called Stinky Beans? a quite interesting menu made by Chef Eelke Plasmeijer comes from Locavore restaurant, Bali. The incoming restaurant is in the list of 50 Best Asia is very famous. The stinky bean dish served on top of Shitake Mushroom with a flower-like presentation is so beautiful. Typical stinky bean flavors provide a sensation combined with a solid shitake texture and delicious shitake pesto.
The second menu is Beet Cured Salmon made by Chef Ryan Clift from Tippling Club, Singapore with the order no.27th on 50 Best Asia Restaurant. The stunning presentation is evident in this dish, the beet used to be a beautiful element and garnish with a dominant taste. Cured salmon with a professional technique that creates a soft, cool and juicy texture.
Each dish is served with a varied wine pairing to provide a more perfect dinner experience. Next, we were presented with Brenebon by one of the Indonesian senior chef, Vindex Tengker, of course quite familiar to the us in Indonesia. This is a typical Manado food, red bean soup served with a oxtail and foie gras dumplings. The red bean soup was thick, the dark color tasted sweet, with the tender oxtail. It's just a layer of dumpling skin feels quite thick, but for the taste is quite tasty and delicious.
The time comes for a typical Indian dish that is Lemon Chili Prawn served by Chef Manjunath Mural who running a Song Of India, Singapore with 1 Michelin star. A shrimp dish with a brightly colored curry sauce with a rich, savory taste. Served with briyani rice that has a delicious rice texture and tasty herbs.

The famous restaurant with gastronomic techniques is very popular with its unquestionable reputation. Varlrhona Jivara Chocolate Pavẻ, a gorgeous chocolate dessert served with mandarin sorbet that has a fresh flavor. The sweetness and sour taste of the two elements is perfect combination.
