Many of us are seeking ways to reconnect with loved ones and rebuild our sense of community. We believe that food has the power to create lasting memories. To bring a sense of togetherness, Social House by Ismaya Group has introduced #SOHOmusthaves, carefully crafted by the Executive Chef, Adhitia Julisiandi, to allow you to indulge in elevated comfort cuisine.
The menu includes a range of succulent Spanish Baked Rice dishes, starting with Black Ink Seafood (with sofrito, chili, seafood, garlic aioli, burrata, and gremolata), Slowly Braised Beef Cheek (with red wine seduction, miso carrots aioli, cheese fondue, and gremolata), Crockpot Truffle Chicken (with sofrito, gravy, braised chicken, shiitake mushrooms, and jalapeno aioli), and Iberico Pork Belly (with chili jam, balsamic pearl onion, red chimichurri, charred chili, and smoked bacon). With ingenuity and a creative mindset, each dish highlights quality ingredients and a fiery cooking adventure, allowing its enjoyers to indulge, relish, and reconnect through a warm meal.
Adhitia Julisiandi, Executive Chef Social House, Ismaya Group, said, “creating elevated comfort cuisine is like giving your taste buds a warm, familiar hug while also surprising them with new and exciting flavors.” For Indonesians, there’s a deep culture of communal eating, where we would socialize and bond over delicious food. This practice inspired chef Adhitia to create the shared dish concept for #SOHOMustHaves. He drew inspiration from his own version of comfort food during his stint overseas, a rendition of Valencia’s traditional dish, Paella, and used it as a foundation for his creations, saying, “by experimenting with different ingredients and cooking methods, I added my own spin on the dish to create a crusty and charred taste on the top and bottom sides of the baked rice, elevating the dish’s complexity.”
The Spanish Baked Rice Black Ink Seafood is inspired by Indonesia’s abundant natural resources from the ocean, combining a variety of seafood, including barramundi fish, shrimp, baby squid, blue mussels, and others, which perfectly complemented the crusty texture of the Spanish Baked Rice. For Spanish Baked Rice Slowly Braised Beef Cheek, he drew inspiration from how Indonesians cook Rendang but alternated the method to braising instead–resulting in tenderness and juiciness, making every bite a celebration of flavor and texture.
The idea of Spanish Baked Rice Crockpot Truffle Chicken was inspired by everyone’s comfort dish: chicken, which is combined with Indonesia’s favorite luxurious ingredient, truffle, to elevate the dish. The earthy, pungent flavors of this elusive mushroom add a decadent richness to any dish. The fourth kind of Spanish Baked Rice, Iberico Pork Belly, is inspired by Bali’s own Babi Guling (suckling pig), a personal favorite of the chef. “I cannot help but reminisce about the mouth-watering flavors. The succulent taste of the crusty roasted pork combined with selected ingredients is irresistible and lingers on my palate, leaving me yearning for more.”
Social House believes that #SOHOMustHaves will bring a new level of sophistication by elevating the humblest cuisines to new heights of comfort and indulgence. The goal is to create a new approach to dining that brings people together over delicious food. “Our aim is to create outstanding and memorable experiences, making our customers feel welcomed and valued, just like in the comfort of their own home,” Cynthia Nur Rahmi Soerja, the Marketing Manager of Social House, explained, noting that Social House always ensures that each guest leaves with an endearing memory of their culinary journey at the restaurant, whether you’re catching up with an old friend over a glass of wine or planning a family dinner to celebrate a special occasion.
