CIRE X August Four Hands Epicurean Journey

From 16 to 18 June 2023, CIRE at Alila Villas Uluwatu will present an exciting collaboration with one of the hottest up-and-coming restaurants in Asia – Jakarta-based August, recently crowned winner of the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023, American Express One To Watch Award.

Bringing together two passionate chefs and their unique culinary flair, the event will see Chef Sheandy Satria of Alila Villas Uluwatu team up with August’s Chef-owner Hans Christian to craft a stunning 10-course dinner tasting menu and a Sunday brunch.

A marriage of modern flavours and Indonesian influences is at the core of August’s DNA, whose elegant, contemporary restaurant in Jakarta’s Sudirman Central Business District has been steadily making waves since its debut in 2021.

Drawing inspiration from his travels and childhood memories, Chef Hans invites diners to immerse themselves in the stories behind his dishes, which champion fresh, local and seasonal ingredients sourced from around the Indonesian archipelago. Chef Sheandy’s mastery at taking inspiration from local flavours and recreating them in authentic dishes using Western techniques provides the perfect match with inventive, flavourful results.

For the four-hands dinner, guests can look forward to savouring a series of snacks and appetisers such as Razor Clam Tempura, and Rabbit Rillettes with charcoal ‘cakwe’ and Alila garden chili jam. Flavours fresh from the sea include White Fish with lemongrass & ham broth and ginger flower, while mouthwatering meat dishes include Lamb Short Loin with caramelised galangal, tomato curry and aromatic herbs – all impeccably and creatively plated.

Sunday brunch is a decadent yet leisurely affair starring a medley of lobster creations, beautifully prepared with the perfect balance of sweet, sour, spicy and umami flavours.

Welcoming guests with magnificent views of the Indian Ocean and cocktails created by Alila Villas Uluwatu’s liquid artist, Putu Wirawan, this exclusive collaboration offers an unforgettable journey of culinary surprises and thrills.

Book your seat to experience a taste of the elegant, innovative food that has made August Asia’s rising restaurant star.
