Bringing Spanish foods straight from Madrid, Gastromaquia Jakarta is an excellent culinary destination, located strategically in the city’s most sought after foodies area.
Stepping inside the restaurant, Gastromaquia welcomed its guests with a homey atmosphere. The all-white design is a favorite sanctuary for many. While foods from their kitchen are modern and innovative, they still embodied what true Spanish cuisine is like; playful in flavor, complicated despite the simple looks, and always fresh. Many of their menus are also suitable for sharing.
One of the popular ones is Paella de Marisco, a huge portion of seafood paella with pearl lobster. Using only fresh seasonal seafood, this paella is definitely a winner. The fresh seafood is mixed together with saffron and rice, as well as tomato, onion, garlic, and red pepper.
Calamares Crujentes or crispy calamari is another seafood dish you cannot miss. One whole fresh calamari is fried until crispy and can be enjoyed with a smooth aioli dip.
If you are in the mood for something exotic, Gastromaquia also has something to offer. How about Goat Cheese? Some may love it and some don’t. At the restaurant, they prepared Goat Cheese by pan frying them, and then served it with bread, basil oil, and honey vinaigrette.
Another unusual ingredient is iberico ham, a Spanish traditional. To make it, one needs more than half a year! It is actually a leg part of a specific kind of pork that only eats nuts in Spain, called black pork. The meat then cured in salt for a long time, dried, and aged for 6 months to create a unique taste. At the restaurant, it is served with rockets and sherry vinegar dressing to create a refreshing salad.
Recently, the team at Gastromaquia has created a new menu, Flan de Hongos. The menu uses porcini flan, foie grass, and infused chive oil. It creates a smooth texture that will melt in your mouth. This delicious flan is only one from many creative creations you can try at the restaurant.
Lastly, something you cannot go out without trying is their Sangria! This wine drink is simply fresh, perfect for hot days!
Excellent foods on the table won’t be complete without a good company. Bring your friends and loved ones to experience Spanish cuisine at Gastromaquia!
