Dade believes that just because Indonesian street food is cheap doesn’t mean it can’t be presented with an artful flair. With his advertising creative director background, Dade hosts Warteg Gourmet on Instagram and is trotting out the well-dressed tempeh with the pizazz of a 3-star Michelin restaurant. Presentation is almost everything… as long as it has that warteg flavor. A sassy makeover for fried rice? Voila. You might just want to hang it on the wall it’s so appealing.
Consultant, food stylist, photographer, Dade also is catering small intimate parties of those in Jakarta wanting to honor the warteg and eat like foodies. His street food makeovers has garnered attention on TV, magazine spreads, national ad campaigns and featured online: Wall Street Journal – Asia, Quartz, DesignTaxi, Food Geek & Love, Wowshack, and more.
