Found in homes throughout the archipelago, Ayam Celengan – an Indonesian equivalent of the piggy bank – conjures up childhood memories of saving, waiting and wishing. In our younger years, we would patiently store up coins and notes in these ornate china chickens, dreaming of ways to spend our precious nest egg. It taught us that good things come to those who wait.
Today, our signature Ayam Celengan dish is the embodiment of this idea. Slow-cooked chicken is lovingly marinated in fresh garden herbs, then roasted and served with healthy vegetables; a hearty and homely dish, taking you back to Ibu’s kitchen in years gone by. Like the eponymous piggy bank, this dish is well worth waiting for; a treat to savor.
Ayam Meriam Sundut
Mixing the richness of the ocean with the simple, earthy goodness of a traditional chicken recipe, Ayam Meriam Sundut encapsulates the variety of flavors and ingredients on offer in Indonesia. This finely balanced, intriguing dish also has a tale to tell. The Betawi cuisine of West Java is imbued with generations of expertise, combining flavorful ingredients with innovative methods and even a sprinkling of history.
Shaped like canons, these cylindrical fingers of meat pay homage to childhood memories of bamboo firecrackers, colonial artillery and the equally explosive taste sensation of mother’s home cooking. Our modern take on this historic staple blends chicken, cuttlefish, corn and kaffir lime leaves, to create a dish that’s rich in history, packed with flavor and perfect for sharing.
Ayam Hutan Kota
Hutan Kota by Plataran is our newest dining venue; a site that combines Indonesia’s history with a celebration of its natural wonders. This leafy oasis in Jakarta’s Gelora Bung Karno Park (GBK) offers a breath of fresh air in the heart of the city, reconnecting the capital and its residents with their natural heritage. Ayam Hutan Kota provides a taste of rural tradition, tucked away between the trees and the city skyscrapers.
Blending succulent roasted chicken with tangy pickles, garlic, herbs and spices, this signature dish combines the hearty soul food of a traditional kampong with the classy ambiance of one of Jakarta’s finest dining establishments. Like the venue itself, the recipe blends timeless culinary heritage with modern refinement and a deeply rooted love of Indonesian cuisine.
