On August 2016, Mandarin Oriental Jakarta announced the grand opening of Li Feng Restaurant. Li Feng is the newest dining destination with exquisite and visually stunning Cantonese foods. The two man behind this great restaurant are Chef Fei and Chef Loy. Both are talented chef with lots of experience in culinary world.
Chef Fei has won numerous awards including The Best Chef in China 2016. He is also the man behind the celebrated Jiang at Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou. His partner Chef Loy, who’s also Executive Chinese Chef at Mandarin Oriental Jakarta, has more than 12 years of experience in fine dining restaurants in various popular destinations like Bali and Dubai.
The restaurant’s interior is inspired by the voyage history and spices trade between China and Batavia (old Jakarta). As you can see, the ceiling is sculpted into a huge sea and junks, made by crystal glass. These are developed and fabricated by Czech crystal sculptors, Lasvit. Super fancy!
You can also see “A Voyage of the South” artwork, a large-gilded glass piece made by Helen Poon, artist from Hong Kong. It features a map of Asia drawn up in 1602 by Italian missionary named Matteo Ricci. It’s made to illustrate the ancient connection between China and Jakarta long time ago.
Every restaurant staff’s uniform is designed by Indonesia designer, Poppy Dharsono. No wonder all the staff look so stylish!
Not only serving you great ambiance, Li Feng also give you great delicacies. One of their signature dishes is Deep Fried Swan Dumpling with Black Pepper Duck Meat. It really caught our heart because of its beautiful presentation and taste. Too lovely to be eaten!
A few menu that you must try in Li Feng Restaurant are Chicken Consomme with Matsutake Mushroom, Sauteed Beef with Szechuan Pepper and Chilli, Sweet and Sour Chicken with Pineapple and Bell Pepper, and Braised Hele Crab with Japanese Rice in Hoisin Sauce. Don’t forget to add their special chilli sauce for extra deliciousness!
If you rotate it, you can see the junks are sailing on the sea.
