Txoko is the newest Spanish restaurant to join Jakarta’s Senopati area, a bustling restaurant hub in the south of the Indonesian city.
The restaurant is owned by Spanish chef Oskar Urzelai â€“ formerly the executive sous chef at Gran Melia Jakarta â€“ and serves up Basque cuisine, tapas and pintxos.
Urzelai’s signature dishes includes the Garlic Prawns Pre-A-Porter, Grilled Octopus with Boletus Cream, Spanish Omelette Lasao, and Lamb Shank with Sweet Potato. Guests can also choose from the 50 handpicked wines from countries such as Spain, France, Australia, Chile and Argentina to pair with their choice of tapas and mains.
Set menus for groups range from IDR225,000++ (US$16++) to IDR445,000++, and includes tapas, main course, dessert and non-alcoholic beverages.
The two-storey restaurant also has a private room on the upper floor that can seat 20 people, and is equipped with a TV for business presentations. The entire second floor can also be closed for private events, and can accommodate 50 to 60 people. The ground floor on the other hand, is a dining area for 40 guests, and is where the open kitchen and bar is located.
A restaurant buyout is possible, with a minimum of one week’s notice, or event planners may choose to just book out the upstairs area alone. Meeting packages and menus can be customised accordingly, and are available upon request.
The restaurant welcomes business events ranging from product launches to theme dinners. With opening hours starting from 08.00 on weekdays, a breakfast meeting can even be conducted as well.
