Locanda Jakarta * Food Voyager

Today, I had a wonderful lunch at a new restaurant that has just opened for a month in Panin Building named Locanda * Food Voyager. Locanda means "Inn" in Italian. The name came from Marco Polo who would stop at an Inn or Locanda on his journey from Italy to Asia.

Locanda offers a unique palate of cuisines against the backdrop of a heady lounge music and chic atmosphere.


The selection of food are Italian and Pan Asian (mostly Thai) dishes.

Tom Yam Kung - Rp. 65.000
I enjoyed this spicy and sour prawn soup.

Sinchos - Rp. 55.000
What a unique appetizer! A resemble of nachos but instead of using tortillas chips, they use traditional "singkong" crackers with yellow cheddar sauce and truffle oil as the cover.

White Truffle Pizza - Rp. 85.000
A delicious pizza topped with mozzarella, celery stick, wild mushroom and truffle oil.

Cigar Prawn - Rp. 60.000
This is so good! Light and crunchy. Dipped with mayonnaise.

Angel Hair - Rp. 120.000
Capellini with tiger prawn on the top. The garlic and chili olive oil were perfect for this dish.

Kai Pad Prik Klea - Rp. 60.000
A delightful dish! Thai chicken black pepper and garlic.

Grilled Spring Chicken - Rp. 120.000
with mashed potatoes and spiced tomato sauce. The chicken was very tender.

Udon Goreng Jawa - Rp. 70.000
I really like the idea of using Japanese noodle (Udon) for this Javanese style noodle, known as Mie Goreng Jawa.

Thai Desserts
Luk Chup - Rp. 50.000
Thai sweet mashed mung bean on 'agar-agar'.
The best Luk Chup I've eaten so far in Jakarta! 

Manciam - Rp. 50.000
This Thai cassava cake with coconut milk tasted so delicious.
