Chris Moes as the Executive Head Chef and Mili Hendratno as the Executive Sous Chef
A modern gastropub that serves elevated comfort food with a creative edge by Chef Chris Moes, a wide selection of beers on tap and handcrafted cocktails.
After a tough day at work, nothing beats an ice-cold pint and crisp-skinned, juicy sausages. The Union Group is bringing you all of that, and more. The newest concept from the successful creator of Loewy, Cork&Screw and Union ups the game with a modern interior, a menu of elevated comfort food with a creative edge, a wide selection of beers on tap and handcrafted cocktails.
THE CHEF & HIS FOOD
Being a Dutch native, Chef Chris Moes spent much of his career as sous-chef at the exquisite and critically acclaimed greenhouse restaurant in Amsterdam, De Kas. After a few years in Jakarta working with The Union Group, he has grasped the market’s tastes and was eager to bring something new and exciting to the table. Many months were spent sourcing for local ingredients and experimenting in the kitchen in his pursuit to make the most delicious homemade sausages and cured meats. We’re glad to say he has definitely succeeded, and is now ready to serve you his refined twist on hearty fare and Dutch classics.
Start with the Erwten Soup, the traditional Dutch split pea soup with handcrafted sausages, house-baked pretzel roll and an amazing smoked butter, which is perfect for rainy days. Or go for one of our personal favourites, the Wagyu Pastrami - smoked to perfection, drizzled with Tonnato sauce and topped with a velvety 7-minute egg. Keep an eye out for the Braised Lamb in Puff Pastry, Chris’ unique take on the quintessential British meat pie. The lamb shank is slowly braised to reach a satisfying fall-apart texture, and all that goodness is hidden underneath a golden brown puff pastry dome, and then served over house-smoked mashed potatoes and gravy.
Headlining the bar at The Dutch is a handsome copper multi-tap beer tower, dispensing seven kinds of draught brews. The selection ranges from local favourites to international ales, perfectly frosty every single time due to the state-of-the-art cold pipe system. Can’t choose one? Opt for the One Metre Beer for a little taste of everything, served on an impressive wooden board.
The award-winning mixologists of The Union Group have a proven track record of exciting cocktail creations. The list at The Dutch runs gourmet and experimental, incorporating exotic ingredients and interesting techniques, inspired by both the kitchen and the world of baristas. We get that sometimes you need that drink stat - here is the only place in the city where you can get a cocktail on tap, so a fizzy and refreshing Americano will be ready within seconds of you resting your elbow on that wood-topped counter.
Behind the minimalistic space is Andra Matin, a major force within contemporary Indonesian architecture who previously collaborated with us on Cork&Screw Pacific Place. Raw, industrial materials such as rusted steel and brass are beautifully contrasted with a sleek, bold design dominated by parallel lines. Though the design steers away from cheesy, conventional pubs of old, the use of wood and copper retains the distinctive warmth and masculinity. Whether you’re sitting at the counter of the large, lively open kitchen, settled in the dining room sofa or perched for the night at the street-facing bar, the restaurant’s strong character feels oh-so-current yet centuries old.
