ALCOHOL, CITRUS, SUGAR, WATER & SPICES

THE ANCESTORS TO THE MODERN COCKTAIL.

Pantja is a cocktail bar and restaurant situated in a strategic location next to Jakarta’s Business District. The restaurant on the first floor focuses on fire and grain: wood fire grill serving delicious steaks, and freshly made pasta every day.

Pantja means five in Sanskrit. Alcohol, Citrus, Sugar, Water and Spice – this combination of five ingredients combines to make punch: the ancestor to the modern cocktail. Dating back to 1600s punch was a luxurious tipple enjoyed in taverns and coffee shops in England, comprised of prized ingredients from the ‘Orient’; particularly alcohol and spice from Indonesia. We honour this history by focusing on Indonesian ingredients to create elegant and enticing punch bowls, both decadent and delicious.

COOKING WITH FIRE

HOT FLAMES AND BURNING EMBERS

We at Pantja consider ourselves purveyors of fine food. We harness the ancient methods of open flame cooking that unlocks the best flavour in all ingredients: from blazing hot flames to sear a juicy steak, to dying embers that can be used to slowly roast vegetables. We focus on dishes that are driven by local seasonal vegetables, fruits, fish and meat. Inspired by his Californian upbringing, Chef Rapha Menchaca’s philosophy is all about cooking whole foods by hand – from hand grinding spices to breaking down animals for charcuterie to hand crafting fresh pasta every day.
