Restaurants: Tanaman, Ijen, and Kaum

A multi-sensory restaurant for the future where diners are invited on a cosmic plant-fueled trip through provocative plates and spirited drinks. Desa Potato Head’s Research and Development Chef, Dom Hammond honors each humble ingredient from root to fruit. Her magical hands and daring sense of creativity transforms Indonesia’s lush, tropical flora and botanical into full edible potential without a single cell wasted. With beautiful and immersive soundscapes setting the tone for an extraordinary dining experience rooted in a respect for plants that elevates them to the divine. Each meal is inspired by one of the five elements: air, fire, earth, water, and space - and paired with an equally thoughtful cocktail by master mixologist Hary Wahyudi. The menu draws only from a bounty of plants—along with a wild selection of mushrooms. Diners can expect dishes with components that are unrecognizable but with vibrant presentation. 

The second dining option, Ijen, is as vibrant as the Beach Club. Ijen focuses on sharing dishes, family style dining, simple and easy and definitely a fresh and fun option. There’s sustainability, and there’s nothing left over. Ijen is Potato Head Family’s imaginative restaurant that embodies the latter. With an overarching philosophy that puts an end to excess both in the kitchen and in its design, Ijen is the first restaurant in Indonesia dedicated to radical Earth-conscious practices. Desa Potato Head’s Executive Chef, Daryl Wonorahardjo finds inspiration in the daily catch, caught locally on hand-reeled lines. Beyond the freshest and most prolific from the sea and land, the new menu celebrates responsibly produced ingredients from trusted suppliers around the Indonesian archipelago. Nearly everything, from mackerel steak with tarragon and miso to prawns featuring rosella and strawberry relish, is cooked over open fire. Conscious cocktails are shaken and mixed with spirits infused in house. Anything remaining from the kitchen and bar is composted; fed to pigs at local farms, used in animal feed or fertilizer or recycled. Even the terrazzo-style dining room floor repurposes broken plates and chipped drinking glasses, and the furniture features ethically sourced Mersawa wood and plastic from motorcycle oil caps. From the oysters to the beans on the small revamped menu, Ijen is a model for responsible dining. 

Named after “clan” or “tribe” in Bahasa, Kaum is an authentic Indonesian restaurant that showcases recipes passed on for generations but were rarely recorded or shared outside the islands’ 600 tribal communities. Marking Potato Head Family’s commitment to place Indonesia’s rich culinary heritage at the center of the world gastronomic map, Kaum celebrates and presents a taste of Indonesia’s culinary origins inspired by the Archipelago indigenous tribes to a wider global audience. Guests can enjoy the sunset and experience the authentic Indonesian journey at Kaum’s hidden terrace. Kaum also offers experiential dining experiences such as Ring of Fire, a culinary adventure inspired by Dr Lawrence Blair’s documentary and many more to come.
