Akira Watanabe’s Japanese-Italian Restaurant Opens Second Location

PASTA HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN. Take the hearty pastas of Italy, add a sprinkling of Japanese flavors, and voilà, you get the menu of AWkitchen (Plaza Indonesia, second floor, Jl. M.H. Thamrin Kav 28-30, Jakarta; +62 21 2992 4325)

 

resto

 

This, by the way, is the second of celebrity chef Akira Watanabe’s signature eateries in Jakarta; the first one being at Plaza Senayan. AWkitchen’s fare goes quite a bit beyond “Japanese-style pasta” and features exciting layers of flavors.

The restaurant’s specialty dish, for instance, features spaghetti with Japanese mushrooms and spicy mentaiko in a combination reminiscent of top quality ramen.

As a final touch, AWkitchen’s range of mocktails is no less intriguing.

Soda with basil, anyone?
