This unique story was when I visited a restaurant in the South Jakarta area. Golden Joy is a family restaurant with a Chinese Indian concept. Well, unexpectedly the owner of this restaurant turns out to be from India but of Chinese descent family. Looks like an oriental Asian face but is able to speak Indian fluently.

The interior of the restaurant is oriental and has touches of red or gold which are synonymous with Chinese vibes. The restaurant's capacity is quite large from an indoor space with round tables, an outdoor area, and 2 VIP rooms. Of course, this is a highly recommended restaurant for celebrating events.

According to the concept, Golden Joy offers a variety of Chinese dishes which are actually quite familiar. However, if you pay attention, many dishes use typical Indian spices and seasonings. One of the highlight menus is Manchurian Gobi. So this is an Indian-style vegetarian dish. Use cauliflower cooked with herbs and spices such as onions, ginger, coriander, pepper, and cumin. 

Fantastic dishes like Hot Garlic Drums of Heaven. Fried chicken coated in flour with a deep reddish color. The crispy texture and tender chicken with a layer of spicy sauce. No joke, the spiciness really shakes the tongue. The dishes at Golden Joy are classified as comfort, most of the menu is Chinese food in general, but with a touch of typical Indian spices. But of course, it is certainly different from a general Chinese restaurant.

The prices are quite standard, and the entire menu is with shared portions for 2-3 persons. This restaurant is suitable for family lunches or dinners. Makes you curious, right?! Chinese Indian Restaurant, of course, this is the first time I have tried a restaurant concept like this.

Phoenix Gastrobar, Newest Aesthetic Lounge, Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta

Bahasa l English Back to writing a blog, okay while I had time to break after the festive season in last December 2022. In 2023, of course, I hope to be able to actively blog again with the latest and interesting information that I think is memorable to convey. So like this bar that just opened in the Pantai Indah Kapuk area of Jakarta. Phoenix Gastrobar, a new concept presented by HWG, is one of the newest brands by the pioneers in the restaurant, bar, and club industry today. Next to each other between the two clubs presented before, are Tiger & Dragon Bar. The concept offered at Phoenix is completely different from previous HWG outlets. First I'll say the interior is absolutely stunning, with 3 story bar & lounge with stairs that reminds me of Hogwarts, the school in the Harry Potter movies. There is a DJ booth in the main area, a fountain that gives an elegant impression, and a bar station with a magnificent display rack of dozens of liquor. If you have frequently visi
