A South Jakarta Noodle House
Komodo Kitchen and Gina Onyx
Paying homage to the noodle houses throughout Indonesia, Gina Onyx of Komodo Kitchen focuses this frame experience on her cult-favorite noodle house in Melawai, South Jakarta, part of the cosmopolitan city where she grew up, which she explains now, as a rather voguish neighborhood.
Gina conveys an image of this famed 1970’s Jakarta noodle house, which serves more than 30,000 customers a day, as “a true Mum and Pop noodle house, where students gather for after school snacks and families share weekend meals.”
Taking over the frame space, tweaking the details, menu, music, and decor, Gina is bringing us precisely this; a South Jakarta Style Noodle House. Transporting the authentic flavors ubiquitous in Indonesian cities, found in restaurants, street-side food stalls, traveling carts and bicycle vendors to our Sunday dinner tables, at frame.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
