pearl chi­nese Restau­rant


Exquisite Taste - - Best Brunches -

Famed as one of the city's most ex­cit­ing restau­rants, the newly-re­vamped Pearl Chi­nese Restau­rant also serves a daz­zling Chi­nese cui­sine-in­spired spread for its spe­cial Sun­day Dim­sum­li­cious Brunch. Lo­cated on the sec­ond floor of JW Mar­riott Ho­tel Jakarta, the restau­rant's dé­cor is con­tem­po­rary with charm­ing Ori­en­tal touches such as the clas­si­cally gor­geous white linen­draped round tables and the em­broi­dered plush seats of the wooden chairs. The in­te­rior is a mix of crim­son and gold, both colours favoured by the Chi­nese for sig­ni­fy­ing luck and pros­per­ity. Large floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows take up one side of the din­ing room, through which guests can ad­mire sweep­ing views of the bustling Kuningan district while en­joy­ing a spot of brunch with fam­ily and friends.

The brunch spread fea­tures clas­sic Chi­nese favourites such as house­made beef shank, tantalising black pep­per beef, the lovely kung­pao chicken, the umami roasted pork belly as well as golden parcels of fish fil­lets fin­ished off with sweet and sour sauce. Sta­ples such as fluffy fried rice and stir­fried sea­sonal veg­eta­bles round off a hearty Chi­nese-style brunch.

For guests look­ing for some­thing light, we rec­om­mend the Con­gee which comes with gar­nishes such as shred­ded chicken, sliced green onions and fried shal­lots. Do or­der the made-to-or­der steamed dim sum, with clas­sics such as har gao and chicken xiao long bao in ad­di­tion to unique cre­ations such as the un­agi prawn dumplings (caramelised un­agi atop a steamed prawn wrapped in translu­cent house-made skin), the seared lamb bun (parcels of juicy lamb in dark sauce wrapped in house­made baoskin and pan-seared) and the duck ravi­oli – suc­cu­lent slices of duck in house­made sauce wrapped in ravi­oli skin, deep fried and served with pump­kin and salted egg yolk sauce.

To end your meal on a mem­o­rable sweet note, drop by the dessert sta­tion where one can find a spread of de­light­ful West­ern and Chi­nese desserts. Sta­ples such as rich choco­late cakes and mango pud­dings jos­tle for space with Chi­nese favourites such as sesame balls and egg tarts.
