Eat+Drink: Union Pondok Indah Mall

TREAT UNION. After taking the Jakarta’s highbrow culinary settings by storm back in 2011 when the first branch opened at Plaza Senayan, Union (Street Gallery Terrace, Ground Floor, Pondok Indah Mall I, Jakarta; +62 21 295 297 81; is back for another round of delicious phenomenon.

The newest establishment at Pondok Indah Mall in South Jakarta retains the same feel and ambiance, of rustic retro with a twist of modernity. The menu is ever revolving, suits the taste of the Millennial—with anything hip and worth a buzz on offer. Such is the cronuts (an unprecedented marriage between croissant and donut), listed among the signature favorites including Bakmi Ayam (chicken noodle) with foie gras, and red velvet cakes. Nevertheless, the location is faultless for smokers, thanks to the semi-open area.
