Paradise Inn, Plaza Indonesia

There is a new Chinese restaurant "Paradise Inn" at Plaza Indonesia. 

 I like the warm ambiance of contemporary Orient Chinese decor.

Paradise Inn serves herbal and floral teas as well as fruit tisanes.

Lavender, Rosemary, Dried Longan & Chrysanthemum - Rp. 25.000 per person

Lychee Mojito Ice Tea - Rp. 23.000, Rosy Vanili Ice Tea - Rp. 23.000
So nice to smell the fragrant aroma of each tea.

Marinated Kelly Fish with Vnaigrette - Rp. 48.000
It's pretty crunchy, sweet, salty and tangy 

 Century Egg served with Pickled Ginger - Rp. 28.000
the pickled ginger was too strong for my liking.

 Sliced Tea-smoked Duck Teochew Style - Rp. 68.000
Lovely slices of smoked duck.

 Crisp-fried Seafood Roll in Wasabi Mayo Sauce - Rp. 48.000
The cherry on the top added the sweetness of the seafood roll.

Teochew Style Crisp-fried Prawn Roll - Rp. 48.000
Another tasty appetizer.

 Double-boiled Pig Stomach w/ spare Ribs & White Pepper - Rp. 108.000 per pot
Love the tender pork belly and the broth was so delicious. Really!!! 

Imperial pork ribs - Rp. 48.000 (S), Rp. 68.000 (M)
Crisply fried with right balance of the sweet and salty flavors. 

 Coffee Pork Ribs  - Rp. 48.000 (S), Rp. 68.000 (M)
It tasted almost the same as the Imperial pork ribs except the sweetness was quite overwhelmed.

 Poached Chinese Spinach with Egg trio and Minced Pork in superior stock - Rp.58.000
Tasted alright but I think it's too watery.

Sautéed Scallops and Asparagus with Spicy Homemade Sauce - Rp. 88.000
 Fresh crunchy asparagus but the sauce was a bit spicy for me.

 Sautéed Venison with Ginger and Spring OnionsRp. 88.000 (S), Rp. 108.000 (M)
The meat was moist with perfect seasoning.

Steamed Pomfret Fish with Black Bean and Garlic Sauce - Rp. 108.000
Garlic sauce for steamed fish, never failed! Like the adding of black bean.

Chinese style Pan-fried Beef Fillet - Rp. 118.000 (S), Rp. 138.000 (M)
I totally enjoyed eating this soft tender beef fillet.

 Stewed pork belly served with lotus bun - Rp. 15.000 per piece
The pork belly in the lotus bun was really good.


Top row (L-R): Chilled Mango Sago - Rp. 25.000, Chilled Lemongrass jelly with Lemonade - Rp. 22.000, Double-boiled Hashima with Red Dates and Dried Longan - Rp. 58.000
Bottom row (L-R): Mango pudding - Rp. 22.000, Ah Bailing (3pcs) with Red Bean Sago - Rp. 25.000.
My favorite among the 5 cold desserts is the Chilled Mango Sago. I couldn't really enjoy the Chilled lemongrass jelly with lemonade because of the pungent flavor of lemongrass.

Durian pancake - Rp. 35.000
Never enough with only one piece of it.

Overall, I enjoyed almost all the food being served that made each mouthful satisfied and also the friendly service.
