Cozy and laid-back, PTT Family’s contemporary dining venue Attarine “brings a world of spice” to a quaint corner of Jakarta’s leafy Gunawarman Street. Chef Jacob Burrell’s creativity and love for locally grown vegetables shine through at this months-old establishment, where the menu—which features playful reinterpretations of hearty dishes—is small yet ever-changing. In true PTT Family fashion, the space exudes an effortless charm, complete with soaring ceilings, hanging plants, colorful framed posters, and a vintage car parked right in the center of it all.

Those seeking a one-off experience will be glad to know that the restaurant has a monthly program called the Chef’s Table. Dishes are kept a surprise until they’re served, making each session a real treat for both the Attarine team and hungry patrons. What diners can continue to expect, though, is a multi-course meal of lovingly crafted off-menu specials, and generous pours of tipples to boot. This month’s nine-course, wine-paired feast was no exception: dishes included wood-fired octopus served with lemon puree, aged beef tomahawk, crispy chicken wings stuffed with prawns, and lemon sorbet infused with turmeric.

The limited number of spots makes the event all the more special, as does the casual counter seating by the open kitchen, as it allows guests to chat with the chefs as food is being prepared.

The Chef’s Table is priced at IDR 600,000 per person.
