Exploring Apéritif’s Ingredients: Unveiling a Curated Symphony of Flavours 


At Apéritif, the culinary team is committed to sourcing the finest ingredients, placing emphasis on local and seasonal produce. While showcasing the lesser-known Indonesian ingredients, they also curate exquisite produce from around the globe and from our own greenhouse. For example, the Cem Cem leaf is one of the main commodities produced by the Penglipuran village in Bali, which the locals drink as a healthy start to the day, as they balance the bitter taste with some fresh fruit; and Indonesian Galangal comes with a slightly citrusy yet spicy and peppery flavour, which gives more depth of flavor with its earthiness.  

Our meticulous selection allows for creation of unique flavour combinations and draws inspiration from diverse global influences. Each dish is a harmonious symphony of tastes, unveiling the richness and depth of Apéritif’s culinary artistry. 


Eclectic Flavors Unleashed: A Fusion of Culinary Wonders 


Apéritif’s eclectic dining concept is an ode to the endless possibilities that arise when global cuisines and culinary techniques intertwine. The menu at Apéritif reflects a harmonious balance between familiarity and innovation, as culinary influences from the old Spice Islands meld with distinctly modern European flavours. The ‘Octopus’ on our Prestige menu features parape and dabu-dabu vinaigrette, from the region of Makassar where Arvin, our Head Chef, grew up. A dish that’s been on the Apéritif menu since its conception in 2019, which is an absolute favourite and the epitome of this eclectic concept, is our ‘Venison Wellingtonwith its rendang sauce. The Sup Buntut is a wonderful Indonesian oxtail soup, usually a standalone dish, but here you’ll see it feature as a beautiful accompaniment to the short ribs.
