Dining in Jakarta can sometimes feel like a bit of a fuss, so take away the strain of choosing and let yourself be guided by FLYNN, where the flavours of the world are at the heart of the meal.
Relaxed and welcoming, yet majorly stylish, FLYNN features a dining area, bar, two private rooms and a semi-open kitchen, where you can sneak a look at the chefs at work.
The brainchild of co-founder and chef Yulius Novin, an alumnus of Le Cordon Bleu Sydney who has had stints in some of Sydney’s top restaurants and one of Jakarta’s biggest F&B companies, the restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients, alongside imported specialties such as gooseberries and figs, to create an eclectic mix of dishes inspired by Yulius’ travels. Sit down for a relaxed Balinese-inspired starter of Bebek Betutu Tacos with a spicy duck filling to excite your taste buds, or tuck into the Grain Salad if you’re looking for a healthier start as it boasts a lively party of pomegranate, ricotta and raspberry vinaigrette. For the main course, the Pumpkin Gnocchi with confit pumpkin, ricotta and candied walnut is a great choice, as is the Crispy Pork Belly served with pear slaw and gooseberry.
Whatever dish you opt for, wash it down with a cocktail from the impressive selection, such as a Thyme for Yuzu or Purple Rain, or maybe sweeten it up with the signature dessert, Bolu Tape? You’ll be happy either way.
