IO, Jakarta – Hotel Alila SCBD Jakarta is not yet operational, but the premium level accommodation continuously warms up by launching reputable restaurants to support its business. After opening Vong Kitchen in April 2018, this August they opened another restaurant called Le Burger, a more casual and youthful place to eat. The menu presented in this restaurant is quite simple: burgers and complementary dishes such as lettuce, french fries and onion rings. What distinguishes Le Burger from other burger shops is the ingredients used and the secret recipe from chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. For the menu, Jean-Gorges offers six types of burgers and one hotdog with a choice of burgers such as cheese burgers, shrimp, chicken, goats, vegetarian, until beef wrapped in truffle mushroom sauce.
The restaurant was curated by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten with his son Cedric Vongrichten and headed by Chef Luisa Fernanda Caicedo. Chef Jean-George has a long history in the culinary world. When he was 29 years old, he was the youngest chef to receive a four-star review in The New York Times. In the 1980s, he led the evolution of French cuisine in New York. His restaurant in New York even won a Michelin Star title and was named the best French restaurant in the United States. Thus, the delights of Le Burger’s burgers need not be doubted. Moreover, some burger creations owned by Colombian Chef Luisa Fernando are unique. Starting from T ruffle Burger, Shrimp Burger, to Kimchi Dog.
The restaurant located on the side of Alila SCBD Jakarta carries a relaxed design and is divided into two areas: semi-outdoor and indoor. The design is thick with industrial nuances with neon signs and iron benches and wood materials. With this concept, Le Burger deliberately collaborates with Rockwell Group. The name Rockwell Group itself is very popular in the world of architecture.
All ingredients used in each dish are guaranteed fresh. Le Burger even even has a soft, slightly savory and chewy burger bun. This is because the bread is made by one of the bakeries in Jakarta with a mixture of potatoes. The flagship menu is Truffle Burger, a beef patty combined with truffle sauce to brie cheese. So that the taste is very juicy and treats the tongue. For a companion menu, don’t miss the delicious Crazy Fries. Chef Luisa’s french fries creations. This dish has a unique taste. The appearance also matches the name.
“This (fried potatoes) is covered with cheese sauce, spicy mayonnaise, caramelized onion, pickled cucumber, and jalapeno peppers,” explained Chef Luisa to the Independent Observer. The experience of eating different burgers can be obtained by Jakarta residents until the early hours of the morning. Because Le Burger is open until 5am on Fridays to Sundays. So, if you want to hangout while eating a juicy burger in the SCBD business area, it seems fit for us, the Independent Observer to recommend Le Burger for you to visit when feeling hungry at night.
