Satiate your Italian cravings with the newly renovated Ambiente Ristorante in Jakarta, whose flavours will transport you to the sun-soaked fields of Tuscany.
After an extensive renovation, the iconic Ambiente Ristorante at Aryaduta Jakarta, has re-opened its doors to become one of the most talked about foodie destinations in town. The restaurant exudes a rustic, albeit sophisticated vibe, and is helmed by executive chef Matteo Meacci, who serves Tuscan signatures with a touch of creativity.
Italy-born, Meacci has honed his skills in Jakarta’s Ocha & Bella and Singapore’s now-defunct Ristorante Procacci. He has also appeared in reality show Hell’s Kitchen Indonesia as a guest judge.
Menu highlights include antipasto sharing platters such as Tagliere Toscano with Italian imported and homemade salumis and pâté (Rp225,000); and Carpaccio di Manzo, with raw beef marinated in roasted garlic, rocket, Parmesan and truffle oil (Rp110,000). Other popular choices include Braciola di Maiale Piccante alla Griglia, featuring a spicy grilled pork chop served with baby potatoes and Romesco sauce (Rp180,000); and the charcoal Ambiente Pizza topped with cherry tomatoes, smoked salmon, grilled zucchini and a touch of truffle oil (Rp115,000).
