It’s been a while since our last visit to SKYE and they have changed their concept a little bit. SKYE is now not only for formal dining,but you can also have a casual meet up at this one of the well known restaurants from Ismaya Group. Back then, we always think that SKYE was a very exclusive restaurant, but gone are the days when you were turned away for wearing sandals!
SKYE has recently launched their Valentine’s Day menu and we had a chance to try several of it. With the creative mind of Chef Hamish Lindsay behind the new dishes, they will impress you with their stylish and (very!) pink menu, specially made for Valentine’s Day 2017 only.
Tempura Oyster with carrot & ginger puree, potato airbags, pine nuts, salmon caviar
We didn’t have a chance to try this menu so we can’t say much. But for the presentation, it’s classy and one of a kind.
Crab Ravioli with polenta & parmesan espuma, lobster emulsion, caviar and chives
Very posh presentation, especially with the pink ravioli and black caviar on top of it. The pasta is al dente but as for the taste, it’s nothing special. Still okay though, and it would be perfect for your Valentine’s Day Instagram feed.
Wagyu Beef Sirloin with Foie Gras, potato galette, gorgonzola sauce, and red wine jus.
Our favourite from all. The beef is tender and juicy, the gorgonzola sauce is nice and Chef Hamish seasoned the potato galette perfectly – it’s also very creamy and rich. But too bad, we didn’t have a chance to eat it with the foie gras because it ran out. We think it will be more spectacular if we did.
Valrhona Chocolate Fondant with mixed berries, raspberry gel, strawberry & red wine ice cream, with gold leaf.
Unfortunately, we didn’t try this either because it ran out too. But we heard from our friends that this dessert is super duper good. The chocolate fondant melts perfectly and the strawberry & red wine ice cream is exquisite. Wish we can taste it but oh well, another time perhaps.
Why we think SKYE is the perfect place for Valentine’s Day is because of their fancy ambiance with the magnificent view of Jakarta from level 56, especially at night. Foods are still decent and worth a try for Valentine’s Day. They will provide 4-course Valentine’s Day dinner set for IDR 850,000++ per person and free flow house wine for additional IDR 350,000++.
