Cantonese Finest Dishes Smile Dec 19, 2014

Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Kumpul Keluarga

Hi Openricers.

This time I'm going to write another one of Boga Group's restaurants again. Well, as I might have mentioned so many times, Boga never fails to deliver me good food in any of its line of restaurants.
As so that day I was invited to the latest member to join the family of Boga Group, called Canton Paradise.

 
Canton Paradise is under the management of Paradise Group, which is still affiliated with Boga Group. Those others who stood under the same management are Paradise Inn and Paradise Dynasty.

 
Canton Paradise, as you might have guessed from its name, focused mainly on Cantonese cuisines, Hongkong style of Chinese food. Hongkong, being a seaport, contribute a lot in influencing the Cantonese cuisines. With a long culinary history, the Cantonese are also very inventive, and happy to incorporate non-native ingredients in their cooking.
Canton Paradise itself is a franchise brand from the Paradise Group in Singapore. This outlet at Mall Kelapa Gading is still their only outlet in Jakarta, and I really hope it will soon open another outlet elsewhere.

 

 

 

 

 
The interior adapts the style of Cantonese traditional restaurants. Wood elements dominating the restaurant, starting from the furnitures and also most of the colors. In the other hand, the restaurant also applies purple-ish color which is the signature color of Canton Paradise.
The interior looks very elegant, although it doesn't look spacious beacuse the restaurant really packed the tables and chairs to accomodate maximum number of customers.

 

 
As in any Chinese restaurants, you will be given a welcome snack. The same as in Paradise Inn, they will serve you fried peanuts while you wait for the food to be cooked.
So let's just start checking on the food. I will begin with the appetizers.
Shanghai Pork Dumpling - Rp. 28.800.

Served in a bamboo steamer basket, these dumplings are commonly known as Xiao Long Bao. What's inside it is pork and broth. The taste of these dumplings were remarkable. Almost similar with those being served at Paradise Dynasty. The thickness of the dumpling skins were spot on. And the ginger sauce that came along really elevated the flavors of the dumplings as I dipped them inside it.

Crispy BBQ Honey Pork Bun - Rp. 28.800.

These buns are just my favourite appetizers here. I always order these stunning buns everytime I come to Canton Paradise. And being the signature dish of the restaurant, it did its job very well.
The buns were so soft, with a crispy skin outside. And the pork fillings were just delicious. Savory and not too sweet. It's just so likeable.

Crisp Fried Cuttlefish served with Mayonnaise - Rp. 38.800.

Loved the crispy and savory batter. The cuttlefish was cooked perfectly, and the texture was great. Flavorwise it's also delicious, especially being dipped into the mayonnaise.

Sauteed Kangkong with Minced Meat in Bean Sauce - Rp. 58.800.

I love the fresh kangkung used for the dish. Also the usage of peanuts and garlic that gave a nice complimentaru taste to the savory vegetable dish. It tasted really good.

Braised Vegetables with "Ling Zhi" Mushrooms - Rp. 88.800.

Cooked along with bok choy, the Ling Zhi mushrooms tasted really nice. I loved the soft chewy texture of the mushroom. The sauce also tasted delicious, and the bok choys were nice and crunchy too.

Crisp Fried Eggplant with Chicken Floss - Rp. 32.800.

This was also one of the menu I always order everytime I eat at Canton Paradise. And it was just a week ago I've had the same menu at Paradise Inn. This menu is deep fried, light battered eggplant topped with savory chicken floss. The texture was good. The light batter was seasoned too, so even though the eggplant didn't have a strong flavor but the batter complimented it really well. A good dish overall.

Steamed Spring Water Tofu with Sauteed Minced Pork and Bean Sauce - Rp. 48.800.

Soft and silky tofu topped with savory minced pork, and complimented with a delicious bean sauce. Hands down, it's really good. The tofu was nicely seasoned, it wasn't all bland. The texture was also wonderful. The minced pork was just so mouth-watering. It's also quite juicy and the flavors were very tasty.

Steamed Sliced Pork Belly with Dried Shrimp in Prawn Paste - Rp. 68.800.

The pork belly was perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned and the flavors were delicious. They were very juicy too. I think it's a great way that the restaurant combined dried shrimp which tasted a bit salty to enhance the flavors of the pork. And the sauce was also good.

Poached Sea Bass with Pickled Cabbage in Spicy Fish Stock - Rp. 138.800.

First thing I want to say about this dish is I am frigginly loving the soup. It was phenomenal. Salty, savory and a bit spicy due to the chilli flakes. The sea bass was executed nicely. Tender, smooth and of course delicious. This is just one dish I could finish on my own, and I have to tell you the portion is overwhelming.

Roasted Duck - Rp. 88.800 (regular), Rp. 158.800 (half), Rp. 288.800 (whole).

I have to say the roasted duck here has the same flavor character like the ones in the other infamous duck restaurant. The flavors were exquisite. I loved the crispy duck skin, and how they perfectly roasted the duck so that the meat didn't go dry. It was very juicy. And FYI, the one in my pic is the whole portion. It could fit for 4 persons.

Chinese Tea - Rp. 5.800.

A cup of chinese tea with its nice bitterness always make a good choice after I eat a lot of salty savory chinese dishes. As I would say, it helps neutralize my palate. And the chinese tea is also refillable here too.

Overall conclusion, it was a fine Cantonese dinner I had that day. As I would put my trust in any Boga restaurants, they never let me down. The ambiance is really nice, the service is also very impeccable.
Cantonese style restaurants are not much to be found, and Canton Paradise really acts as an oase as I would search for one with good dishes.
Prices could be classified between mid up, but still I find some menus are just worthy of their price tags considering the flavors and also the portions.
Still my favourite Chinese restaurant in Kelapa Gading up until now, and I think it will still be. I'm always excited for my every next visit here.

Keep on chewing!

Categories : Barat | Pizza & Pasta | Pancakes / Waffle / Crepes | Halal | Kencan / Berpasangan | Kumpul Keluarga

kayanya hampir semua sobat openricers uda tau nanny's pavillon, tempat makan pancake yang enak, selain pancake makanan yang disajikan di nannys juga enak. kemaren gw jalan-jalan ke central park mall, sorenya ngemil di nanny's pavillon. tema resto nanny's di CP ini adalah garden gitu jadi banyak kaya tanaman, kursinya pun ala taman, nyaman deh gw ngemil disini, untuk area ada indoor maupun outdoor, gw kemarin yang di outdoor.

pelayan disini juga menggunakan seragam ala maid gitu, pelayanannya juga mayan cepet si gw kemarin walopun rame. makanan cemilan gw disini adalah heavy alvin's potato 35rb (exclude tax).

tampilan makanan kaya di bawah, jadi ini menu keripik kentang yang garing diatasnya ada daging cincang dengan melted mozzarella cheese juga saus chili. keripik kentangnya enak, gurih campur asin bercampur sama daging cincang yang empuk, cheesenya juga yummy, rasanya sedikit pedas karena saus chili.

Hii Openricer tongue

Aku mau review nih resto yang menurut aku tempatnya sangat cozy di Jakarta yang mungkin saat ini sudah banyak kalian yang pada tau yaitu Nanny's Pavillon. Nanny's Pavillon ini sudah memiliki banyak cabang di Jakarta, seperti di Central Park, Pacific Place, Gandaria City, Plaza Indo, Kota Kasablanka dan lain lainnya masih banyak lagi. Nah di Nanny's ini juga memiliki ke khas an yang dapat menarik banyak pengunjung untuk datang dan makan disini. Suasana resto yang membuat orang penasaran untuk mencoba dimana terdapat suasana bath room, bedroom, livingroom di masing-masing cabangnya. Di Central Park ini lebih menjual suasana seperti garden. Design dan suasana ruang pun lebih banyak pepohonan dan tempat duduk ayunan. Nah sekian mengenai suasana ruangannya. Mari kita lihat makanan apa saja yang disediakan disini : Kebetulan yang aku makan itu namanya Beef Baked Rice. Namanya aja baked. yaitu nasi yang dibaked dengan bumbu" racikan khusus dari chef nanny's sehingga dapat menciptakan rasa yang unik dan berbeda dari baked rice lainnya. bowl

 
Lalu selain itu aku juga ada nyobain yang namanya baby potato salad. Dimana makanan ini berisikan kentang kecil-kecil dengan racikan yang so creamy.. Aku suka sekalii dengan makanan ini guys..
TRY IT !!!

Salah satu restoran dengan desain interior menarik bagi saya adalah Nanny's Pavilion karena desain interior disini berkesan homy, rapi dan "cewek" banget. Sehingga saat makan disini jadi betah berlama-lama. Menu yang disediakan disini antara lain pancake, waffle, pasta, baked rice dll.
Untuk kunjungan kali ini saya makan di Nanny's Pavillion cabang Central Park. Saya memilih lokasi outdoor sehingga bisa makan sambil melihat kolam ikan ataupun tribecca park.
Setelah melihat-lihat menu saya memesan Kirmberly's Green Sausage Pasta. Pasta ini berwarna hijau dan toppingnya adalah sosis dan mushroom. Penyajian makanan disini rapi. Rasa pun lumayan enak.

Pecinta cafe berkonsep pasti suka dengan cafe satu ini. Apalagi uniknya di setiap cabang, konsep cafe ini berbeda. Contohnya kaya yang satu ini di Central Park konsepnya terrace. Bukan sekedar konsepnya yang bagus, makanannya terutama dessertnya masuk dalam salah satu list dessert favorit saya. Menunya juga unik kaya Sizzling Chocolate ini.

 
 Pancakenya disajikan di atas hotplate ala steak dengan saus coklat yang melimpah. Wajib dicoba!
