Carrying contemporary tapas bar concept, Nidcielo combines Spanish-style interior with contemporary Japanese architecture.

In Jakarta, you can now easily find a place that offers tapas. Tapas itself is not a name of the dish, but a culture of eating a variety of Spanish snacks. Usually tapas are often found in bars or cafes. One of places in Jakarta that presents tapas is Nidcielo, which is located on the 2nd floor of SOHO Building, in South Jakarta.

Taken from Spanish slang which means the night sky, Nidcielo gives off an impressive vibrant atmosphere for its visitors. When you go inside for the first time, you will be enchanted by the colorful arrangement of stained glass ceilings.

At the bar table, the friendly bartender and mixologist is ready to offer a reference to sipping a Nidcielo signature cocktail before eating tapas or starting a casual meeting in the dining room. Pamper yourself with Nidcielo's mild concoctions, like Vermut Con Soda Rojo and Vermut Con Soda Blanco that will restore your spirit. As well as classic Nidcielo like White Lady or Martinez. If you are looking for a bolder taste, you should try Boulevardier, a mixture of Jack Daniel's, Vermouth and Campari.

As a tapas bar, Nidcielo has prepared a series of tapas and comfortable food with a creative blend using Japanese special ingredients. Executive Chef of Nidcielo, Chef Shuji Hino has spent his time in Spain, and has a deep respect for Spanish culinary traditions.

The menu that you should try at this bar includes Croquetas de Gambas, a unique plate of shrimp cream croquette with dill oil that is perfect for starter. There is also Barramundi A La Kadaif which is Chef Hino's creation by combining Spanish and Japanese cuisine in one dish. For the main menu, you should try innovative Spanish rice dish, Catch of the Day Paella, as well as steak and pasta choices that are no less delicious.

Need sweets after eating tapas and heavy food? It's time to eat Crema Catalana. This crème brûlée-like dessert doesn't taste too sweet with soft cream and smokey flavor of roasted brown sugar on top. You’re going to like it!
