Located in Menara Rajawali (opposite Loewy), Arrack and Spice is one of the newest openings in Mega Kuningan.

It is owned by the people behind the successful Hause, a trendy rooftop bar and restaurant set amid a cute garden in MD Plaza Tower (Kuningan).

Arrack and Spice is a more formal venue, but it shares some similarities with Hause: Experimental food and drinks, tasteful design, regular events, and an overall willingness to appeal to millennials (for instance by offering healthy and vegetarian dishes).

It is split in three different areas:

The Restaurant
The restaurant occupies most of the space, with a seating capacity of around 40 pax. It is nicely decorated, with a retro colonial touch, without being too extravagant.

The food is inspired by the Silk Road, combining ingredients that can be found along the way between Europe and Asia. Most dishes in their menu will sound familiar, but they will often have a unique fusion twist.

For instance, their Oxtail Risotto is made using a local spicy sauce, Sambal Hijau:
Oxtail Risotto with Arborio Rice, Australian Oxtail, Sambal Hijau
Some of the other food and drinks I tried were the following:
Appetizer made from Chickpeas, Coriander, Green Chilli, Shallots, Mint and Chutney
Khao Soi Noodles (from Myanmar/North Thailand)
Iced Spiced Coffee
Iced Spiced Tea
The Bar
It is rather small and intimate, perfect for casual drinks after work or for a date. They have themed nights on most evenings, from live acoustic sessions to DJ sets. You can check their schedule on Instagram (see below).
 Regarding the drinks, I recommend you to try one of their signature cocktails such as:
Ibu Kartini Cocktail: Reposado, Galanga Islay Reduction, Tamarind, Citrus, Orange
Pak Raden Cocktail: Mesoyi Rum, Marquisa, Kacang Ijo, Citrus, Angostura.
The Laboratory
This "secret room" is on the second floor of Arrack and Spice. This is where you can see how they make some of their cocktails and, even better, try a few of them. It was not operating when I visited (ramadan + lunch time), but the equipment is impressive!
This space can be rented out for a private event, and it is also used for their movie nights.

Opening Hours:
Everyday from 7.30am to 12am (9am to 2am on weekends) for the restaurant. The bar opens starting 12pm until close.
