The Winner of Exquisite Awards 2022 – Best Chinese Restaurant Jakarta: The Chinese National at Swissôtel Jakarta PIK Avenue
Cantonese cuisine is quite an uncommon delicacy in Jakarta, however, The Chinese National answered that curiosity with the launch of its new concept. Led by Executive Chinese Chef Kong Fook Sin, who is native to the region itself, the specialty menu was thoroughly planned and prepared. From the ingredients, cooking methods, and flavours, Chef Sin felt that it was his duty to deliver an original Canton experience. The concept carries more than 50 dishes served on an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet, paving the way for The Chinese National’s reputation among Jakarta’s Chinese food lovers.
At the peak of its popularity, Chef Sin and his team recently launched a few authentic Cantonese additions into the à la carte dinner menu with a mix of classic food selections, from barbecue favourites, specialty roast duck and new dim sum varieties, to seafood options and abalone creations. Among the highlights of this new menu is the Beggar Chicken, a dish inspired by the unique cooking method of steaming the chicken inside lotus leaf. Other dishes include Salted Egg Lobster, Seafood Hongkong Noodle and a variety of new dim sums, like Black Gold Hakao, Yam Swan Puff and Abalone Dumpling. The new dessert is Marble Pudding.
Since its opening, The Chinese National, with its elegant art-deco design has been deemed a movie scene brought to life. The restaurant also features Letterpress, its resident teahouse by day and cocktail bar by night. Another local favourite, the classically decorated watering hole serves oriental snacks with its signature afternoon tea sessions, as well as Chinese-inspired cocktails.
