  • No.46 Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2024

Opened in 2021 by chef Hans Christian and restaurateur Budi Cahyadi, August has quickly risen to become one of Jakarta’s leading gastronomic stars. With just 50 seats and walls decorated with wooden furnishing and bookshelves filled with its owners’ favourite reads, it’s also one of Jakarta’s most warm and unpretentious venues. Leaving the pass is chef Christian’s 14-course tasting menu which travels across the thousands of islands that form Indonesia to create a whimsical and nostalgic selection of dishes from his past. Breakfast from Mom, a bite-sized homage to his favourite childhood breakfast of rice and lapcheong (Chinese cured sausage) omelette, is one of the many landmark dishes. As a rising star in Asia’s culinary scene, it was awarded the One To Watch Award at the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023 ceremony.
