July 19, 2010 | Chinese Cuisine, CUISINE, Dimsum, JAKARTA
This is a long overdue post that I’ve forgotten to write. Several months ago, we were having a Mother’s day brunch with SC’s relatives at Table 8 restaurant in Hotel Mulia. I was very impressed with the design of this place. It was nothing like the common traditional Chinese restaurant. The dining rooms are designed with Chinoiserie design (French with Chinese twist). The main room is airy with several chinese pagodas as table dividers and big windows overlooking an inner garden. There are several dining suites with the same golden, cream, white, and silver hues.
Table 8 serves a combination of Szechuan (四川) and Cantonese cuisine. So you can expect the dishes to taste flavorful and spicy. As it was a brunch (cost about 168K ++ without the beverages), we ordered a bouquet tea (花茶) 50K++, which seemed to be a favorite order among the guests since there were several gong fu tea masters performing tea brewing shows with unique bronze teapots. Besides the usual dimsum, noodles, stir fried & bbq selections we usually had in a brunch, I was quite interested in their cold dishes that were served beautifully in a cocktail/wine glass. I can’t really remember the dishes’ names, some of it contained jelly fish, scallop & octopus, spicy and surely delicious. Their desserts were also quite extensive. One that was quite different is the sun flower jelly, plus their frozen yogurt are really worth to try as you can put as many toppings as you like. 🙂
