As a fan of high-end dining, it's good news for me when a restaurant brand that has received a Michelin Star award in Hong Kong opens a branch in Jakarta. Precisely at Hotel Langham Jakarta, T'ang Court is a Cantonese Chinese restaurant located on the 61st floor with stunning views of Jakarta's skyline from a magnificent height.
Compared to T'ang Court in Hong Kong, the interior is completely different. Elegant, and modern, playing with elements such as wood, marble, and bright colors on the chairs. In every corner, there is a shelf with a plate display with a beautiful bird pattern. The atmosphere is quiet even though I came there at lunchtime on the weekend seen 2-3 tables seated. The capacity of public space is also not too big, but according to the information they provide a large number of private rooms.
The concept of the T'ang Court restaurant menu itself is quite familiar to me, who has been fond of high-end restaurants both in town and abroad. The concept of this classic Cantonese restaurant is already well known and has been awarded a Michelin Star since 2009 when the Michelin Guide was first launched in Hong Kong and Macau. One of the menus that are excellent here is the Signature Peking Duck. (IDR 888.000++)
This dish can be shared by 3-4 people, a dry-age duck with a size large enough to be served with Chinese pancakes, fried rice, and various dressings that can be eaten together. Basically, I'm not a fan of the duck dish because of its distinctive aroma. But it is undeniable that there is a price, of course, there is quality. Likewise, this Peking Duck really gives an impressive taste. Crispy skin and tender meat texture enjoyed with a sweet and savory Hoisin sauce made me quite addicted to eating this. In addition, with duck fried rice, Yangzhou-style fried rice with duck meat cubes is very comfortable to enjoy.
Besides Peking Duck, one of the mandatory menus here is Deep-Fried Stuffed Crab Shell (IDR 228.000++). According to this information, it is one of the menus that highlighted T'ang Court Hong Kong to become a Michelin Star restaurant. However, it's a little different in Jakarta using the deep-fried technique while in Hong Kong it's baked. Crab meat wrapped in a crispy, tender crumble, and moist crab inside.
I'm quite impressed with the lunch experience here, the quality menu with premium ingredients gives value to a simple dish to be elegant. Besides that, the overall atmosphere of the restaurant is comfortable, and the calm music makes me enjoy my time there. The price, it is quite high according to the location and also the concept of T'ang Court. There are also other menus such as seafood or pork. Because it was my first visit there, I only tried the chef's recommended menus. How about you guys interested to stop by?
