Japanese food is one of the famous cuisine around the world, as we can easily find in Jakarta, there's lot of Japanese restaurants. Few days ago, JiF was invited to try an authentic Japanese Restaurant located at PIK area, called OHKA. FYI, at first, they specialize in ramen, but as time went by they serve another authentic Japanese food which has original and traditional taste. No doubt, many Japanese people pay a visit to here. Anyway, here are their delicacies :
Who doesn't know this world renowned fast-food steak house, named Pepper Lunch? I've been to PL (Pepper Lunch) many many times, but never post a review about it. It's because PL never fails me and I think many people love their food. I often crave for their beef pepper rice too! At PL, customers will have unique DIY (Do-It-Yourself) cooking experience, called "Sizzling it Your Way", so they prepare their own meal before enjoying the mouth-watering dishes. PL only uses fresh and high quality ingredients which are served on their unique patented sizzling hot teppan.
Hello 2015! This is my very first review in 2015. Burgerous- Burgers & More. From its name, I beg you'll know that it's a burger joint. Yes, Burgerous is a newly opened burger joint with unique concept which is different with other burger joint. Located at Taman Ratu area, I think this place is full-packed at lunch and dinner time, since its location at the strategic Taman Ratu road, near some schools and housing complex. If you're in Taman Ratu area, you should notice this eye-catching yellow 'B' sign, combined with minimalist black. Anyway, let's check out their delicacies :
Have you been to the famous Japanese Restaurant, Kiyadon Sushi at Taman Anggrek Mall? If yes, the good news for you is that Kiyadon Sushi has just finished their renovation and be ready for the new look! JiF got invited from Kiyadon to try their delicacies. And here you go for the scrumptious food :
Yeyyy I got some vouchers when I first came to here. And finally I got a chance to revisit this famous Chinese Restaurant. Okay so, if you haven't read my first review about this restaurant, here is it : Canton Paradise. I don't wanna say a lot, let's check their food! Here you go :
Crispy BBQ Honey Pork Bun (29k). 3 pcs of heavenly delish BBQ pork bun. I really love the filling: the BBQ honey pork filling was so good and also generous. The only bad thing is; it was overcooked on the bottom side of the bun. I don't really care actually, the pork bun is still has great taste and become the best pork bun so far :)
Crispy-fried Tofu with Fermented Beancurd (39k). I ordered this for appetizer, just so you know I was confused what appetizer to order because on the menu they were all so mouth-watering and finally I got to choose this. Luckily, my choice didn't disappoint me. The tofu was fried soo crispy and it was nice, and not oily. Such a nice opening!
Canton Crispy BBQ Pork (69k). Well, I'd like to tell you a little story about this. When I looked at the pork selections, I found this was so tempting. When it came to my table, it was a little bit different. And I just realized it was crispy-fried FAT PORK! Geez.. I was quite surprised and yeahh I thought it's such an unhealthy dish hahaha. But after tried it, I must say it was a BOMB! SO SO GOOD. Yes, fat pork is so good. Crispy fried- after you bite it, the oil is melting in your mouth. Feel the sensation! After finished it I felt so sinful LOL. Do you wanna try some? ;)
Crackling Pork Belly (79k). AAA I love this so much!!! I just couldn't resist to eat this! As you can see on the photo, the crispy pork belly was so attractive. The pork skin was roasted crispy and I found it's super delish. The texture was juicy and tender. Don't forget to dip the pork belly with the special sauce. SO YUM. Thanks for making my tummy happy today, pork :P See you again later!
Signature Canton Jumbo Prawn Wanton Noodle - Soup (69k). FYI, for noodle selections, you can choose between soup or dry one. This time, I chose the soup one, and this noodle dish is Canton Paradise's signature. Well, I like the noodle broth, it was so rich flavorful yet tasty. The jumbo prawn wanton was also nice- add the chilli oil to make it more delicious. And the important thing; the noodle was so thin. I really love the noodle texture, it reminds me of Hongkong's noodle. Well done! I'm lovin it :9
Overall, my second visit to here was much better. And yeah, I finally found that they're actually a good Chinese Restaurant, maybe my first bad visit was just not my lucky day at that time. I found all the dished I ordered today were all great, especially porkies hihihi. The service was also fast and friendly. About the price, it maybe pricey but it's very worth and reasonable tho. The classy and classic interior reflect nice ambiance which maked me comfort to enjoy my lunch with my family. I have to conclude that Canton Paradise is a must-visit lovely family restaurant which offers wide-variety of great Chinese food. They should open new branch soon! I'm waiting for it ;)

Another Chinese Restaurant, member of Boga Group; Paradise Dynasty. From its logo, you can see the Xiao Long Bao icon, and I'm going to try their Xiao Long Bao, to prove their tagline! I decided to pay a visit to their first branch at Plaza Senayan. Let's go to the foood :
Steamed Shanghai Dumpling (45k). 6pcs of pork Xiao Long Bao. XLB is one of my favorite dimsum and a must-order dish when I'm craving for dimsum. And at Paradise Dynasty, I guarantee that you absolutely can find a super delicious pork XLB!!! The pork broth filling was so so tasty. And it makes you ADDICTED. I could say this is the best XLB in town. Prove them by yourself! :9
Poached Chicken in Szechuan Style (55k). Poached chicken served with chilli oil in Szechuan style. This is the first dish which came to my table. So I had to wait for the white rice and other dish. Unfortunately, the poached chicken wasn't hot anymore. Well, basically it's a common steamed chicken and covered with 'not spicy' chilli oil. It was just okay for my taste.
Deep-fried Diced Chicken in Szechuan Style (72k). Two words to describe this dish : delicious and spicy. I like this chicken so much! Even though it's a little bit spicy for my tounge, but it's good to eat this with warm white rice. And if you're a fan of spicy dish, this chicken could be also your snack. The chicken was delish, not oily at all and easy to eat since it's bite-sized. Nice eh!
Sauteed Kailan with Minced Garlic (58k). Everywhere I order kailan at Chinese Restaurant, they rarely to cut the stems. Okay so I couldn't eat this, until I called the waitress and ask them to give me a knife. After trying to cut them, one of the waiter came to my table and offer help to cut them with vegetable scissors. Thank God I managed to eat them hahaha. I couldn't find something special with this vegetable dish. It was just okay. For the price, it may be pricey and I think you'd better to order meat or poultry dish.
Overall, I couldn't find something really special with their main-dishes, maybe because I didn't order their specialities. But I love the XLB so damn much! I must say it's the best XLB so far I could find in Jakarta. For the price, it maybe quite pricey, but I think it's reasonable since you can get delicious dishes with authentic yet classy Chinese interior and great location. The service was great and friendly tho. I recommend this Chinese Restaurant to everyone who wants to taste the Legend of XLB!
