Eat+Drink: Cassis

FRENCH TRYSTS. One of Jakarta’s prime French restaurants, Cassis (Pavilion Apartment, Retail Arcade, Jl. K.H. Mas Mansyur Kav. 24, Jakarta; +62 5794 1500; has brought in Michelin starred chef Jerome Laurent to revamp the menu with a delectable twist.

Infusing classic French cuisine with Asian herbs and spices, chef Jerome’s most delightful dishes include the green asparagus royal and truffle emulsion; the seared black cod, vegetables tart, snow peas sauce; and the caramelized apple mille-feuille. Yet there’s so much more to discover, as the chef isn’t afraid to explore the freshest local ingredients and take in some heat to spice up the flavors.
