Paola is born and raised in Indonesia. She gained her cooking skills from years of observing her family's catering and bakery business and her love for Indonesian food grew at home. When Paola is not cooking she is either exercising or blogging about her zero waste lifestyle.
Best Indonesian food I have ever eaten.
Authentic, home cooked delicious meal.
Fun evening with Hosts (Paolo and Adam)
We had 4 course vegetarian option and every meal carried great balance and blend of different flavours.
Moreover Paolo is a strong "Zero Waste" believer which is an amazing initiative! Kudos to her
Will definitely visit them soon to explore different menus!
Thank for authentic and great Indonesian evening :)
Paola and Adam are amazing hosts.
3 of us went first for cooking lessons and then the other 4 joined us for the lunch. I was so impressed with how organised and well prepared Paola was. The flavours of the food were also very fragrant and welcoming. Because Paola pays a lot of attention to quality produce, I felt that even the food was very healthy and nutritious.
My friends and I were looking for something different to do to celebrate my birthday this year, and stumbled across Adam and Paola's listing on PlateCulture. it sounded perfect for a group who had varied dietary restrictions (one vegetarian, one gluten-/dairy- free) and had been craving Indonesian food. Communication was seamless -- I had made the booking inquiry weeks in advance, and Paola was able to tailor the Nasi Tumpeng (Birthday Menu) for our needs. When we got there, we were shown upstairs to the private rooftop that they'd set up for us. There was a Bluetooth speaker so we could play our own music, and we were welcome to bring our own alcoholic beverages, which Adam and Paola kept cool for us downstairs. Other than using the bathroom (in their apartment downstairs), it felt like we had our own private venue, and were able to relax and unwind for the duration of our meal. Paola brought up the dishes as they were ready and explained the background behind the meal, as well as the ingredients, and some traditions that came with each of the dishes. A truly authentic dining experience, and I would be happy to recommend them to anyone who enjoys good food! Will be back!
We were a bench of 6 friends and wanted to try a veggie and 0 waste experience. More than that the rooftop was very comfortable with a beautiful view. The table is well decorated with candles and you can add your music. The best of it is the indo dishes. There were all yunmies and nice to discover. Each dish was very different and tasty and felt so fresh. It was not so spicy as the chilly was on a separate plate. As well you very feel you are at the restaurant as you dont see Paola except when she was bringing dishes and explained to us each meal. Great deal to try ;) thank you Paola.
Paola made a very welcoming dinner at her place as the weather was not so good unfortunately so we couldn't have the dinner on the rooftop. She paid attention to the details and asked if we preferred our drinks to be hot/cold as the weather was cold. Music was great, everything beautifully presented. Great experience :) Thanks Paola!
Paola and Adam serves the most authentic Indonesian home food one can find in this town. Their portion is super generous too. The roof top experience is unmatched. Let's not forget that Paola has a zero waste policy, i.e. she helps save the world while bringing to the table the best of her home to us.
Paola was very accommodating and flexible with the menu - particularly with the vegetarian menu, and with our timing since we had the dinner on a work night. Her rooftop is very relaxing/casual, and yet stunning! It was like a private party with great food! She's very polite and easy going. All in all my friends and I enjoyed our experience and dinner at Paola's.
Authentic home made food with healthy vibes via chef's amazing hospitality. Our friend from outside of Asia thought the food was too plain for their taste but my hubby and i enjoyed the food and thought it was very good. Eating at the roof top was also quite nice and it was a great way to end Sunday night.
Thank you for the great night Adam & Paola! It was an experience to dine at your serene rooftop and the food that we had was very authentic Indonesian. We loved every dish we had, thanks once again for having us!
I organized diner at Paola's for my friend's birthday and all of us really enjoyed it!! Food was great (food koma indeed!), view was great and we had a really relaxing time on the rooftop. We felt that this was not just eating experience but also 'cultural exploration' as Paola was really kind to tell us more about origins of what she was preparing.
Many thanks Paola again!
