“With both Katamana and Kaum (the neighbouring restaurant), our team worked closely with the finest local artisans, independent local producers and suppliers to showcase the best of Indonesia,” said Akili.  “We wanted to highlight Indonesia’s rare and almost-forgotten ingredients, cooking techniques and craftsmanship and bring them together to create experiences that reflect our country’s heritage, all within a modern and relatable context.”
