Hujan, meaning rain, focuses the essentials of cuisine with a “found and foraged” philosophy. Chef Will Meyrick is manifesting a desire to implement his non-stop researches on street food throughout Indonesia and bring the nation’s cuisine heritage to a wider audience, as a part of his role as the iconic Street Food Chef in the faster paced and urban restaurants of Mama San and Sarong.
Will now embark on this this culinary adventure using the best of local ingredients, sourced from local farmers and fostering stronger links with the surrounding community.
The name Hujan was chosen to portray what the rains represent: Good fortune, prosperity and harvest.
Hujan serves a combination of dishes found in the traditional kitchens of South East Asia, including a diverse range of Indonesian dishes originating from the westernmost islands and stretching to the east. Chef Will Meyrick travels across the regions to learn the culinary culture and get to know the people. He brings home timeless recipes and the stories behind them.
The Hujan Locale concept is to present fresh ideas, consistently creating everything in house wherever possible. The kitchen garden and farm provide the vast majority of Hujan’s pantry and the inspiration that comes to the plate.
The creation of an all day dining venue featuring Hujan Locale’s signature Indonesian menu and the installation of a beautiful bar area bring to life a past tradition of Batavian Cafe Culture, a hark back to the elegance of the Java Jazz era where open to the street daytime bars served fashionable cocktails to a sophisticated and fun loving clientele who sipped, snacked and smoked in relaxed fashion at anytime of the day.
During the daylight hours Hujan Locale’s downstairs will exude the atmosphere of the Parisian Cafe Bar with family seating and bar service, then and as the sun sets to the sounds of chilled modern Indonesian jazz fusion, the ambience envelops the adult world of cocktail hour, supper rendezvous and late night bar style dining.
The inspiration is as always, Indonesia, this time Indonesia of the 1930’s when the metropolis of Jakarta, known as Batavia, was a multicultural melting pot of cool jazz scenes, beautiful people and elegant entertainments that bonded over the opulent life style of the “Exotic East Indies”.
