Two months ago, we had dinner at a Chinese restaurant in the Emporium Pluit Mall named Dian Xiao Er. This is the second branch as the first branch was opened at Mall Taman Anggrek. If I’m not mistaken, the place is under the same management with Kiyadon Japanese restaurant. The interior is quite impressive. It was designed like an old china town complete with a garden, a pond, a wooden bridge, and red brick walls with dimly lit lampions hanging from the ceiling.
The restaurant specializes in duck roasted in Chinese herbs that can be ordered in small/big portions, so we ordered Angelic Herbs Roast Duck (S) 62.8K, Mongolian Spare Ribs (S) 59.8K, Sesame Chicken H Style 57K, Roast Lamb Meat Grass 78K, Braised mushroom with Chinese Wine 51.8K, Old Style Steamed Fish (S) 62.8K, Stewed Ee-Fu Mie with Shitake Mushroom 45.8K. I always love Chinese food that is cooked with herbs, so naturally, I liked their roast duck. The herb was fragrant and not as bitter as when you used too much Chinese herbs in your cooking. Their roast lamb, mongolian spare ribs & sesama chicken were also delicious, but I can’t say the same for their braised mushroom which looked and tasted unappetizing. Overall, although this place is quite pricey, we’re quite satisfied with the meal. 🙂
