The Langham, Jakarta proudly unveils a brand-new addition to the lavish hotel with the opening of a sophisticated café, ALICE, a gourmet European eatery presenting delicious brunches, chic afternoon teas and exquisite dinners.
Opened on 9 March 2022, ALICE is a is playful yet elegant gourmet café, featuring tastefully-presented culinary offerings set in Art Deco-inspired interiors with chic French music setting the mood in the background. ALICE takes inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s classic English children’s novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which was published coincidentally in the same year as the opening of the flagship Langham hotel in 1865.
Seamlessly integrating an authentic afternoon tea concept with a contemporary twist, ALICE presents the signature and classy LANGHAM Afternoon Tea, featuring a variety of dishes that are decadent as they are tantalising. Ranging from the French appetiser of Smoked Salmon Vol Au Vent and the Brioche Truffle Egg Topped with Caviar to a dish from Chef Giles Langford’s family recipe that has been passed down through generations and the famous Wagyu Beef Tartare served at Parisian bistros. Utilising only the finest and high-quality ingredients, relish in the delicious Lobster doughnut, and indulge your sweet tooth with the delectable desserts inspired by the beauty of flowers and Indonesian forest such as the opulent Valrhona Chocolate cakes, sweet pink Rose Macaroons, and so much more French desserts.
The iconic tailored afternoon tea was first served in the flagship Langham hotel over 150 years ago, paired with an exquisite Tea Collection featuring a meticulously curated variety of tea blends including the aromatic fresh brewed Earl Grey, citrus fruits flavours of the African plant rooibos, exotic four fruits rouges flavoured black tea, sencha fukuya green tea and jasmine tea with the rich notes of fruit cocktails and sprinkling flowers.
Additionally, ALICE offers premium hand-crafted manual brew coffee made with Langham special beans utilising the balancing Syphon Gold and Aeropress machine for consistently brewed fine coffees. For something a bit more bubbly, have a glass of fresh fruit cocktails, a bottle of sparkling or champagne in the chic setting of ALICE.
Guests looking for a more sumptuous dish can indulge in the crowd-pleasing signature Billionaire burger served during brunch and dinner tome. Revel in the mouth-watering 30 days dry-aged beef patty with smooth duck foie gras and classic beef wagyu, topped with beef bacon and loaded with Truffle Aioli. The final touch will be a layer of 24K edible gold on top of the bun.
“ALICE brings to life the culture of the quintessential British afternoon tea and serves as a gourmet rendezvous to celebrate the everyday from morning until evening for the city’s tastemakers and their loved ones,” said Alexander Poindl, General Manager of The Langham, Jakarta.
