Exquisite Cantonese Restaurant
Visited this restaurant last week, and I can honestly say that Pearl Chinese Restaurant served the most exquisite Cantonese food that I have ever had. Their service was amazing, though I could imagine that it could be hard to call for waitresses/waiters from the private rooms. Ambiance Located in the luxurious JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta, this restaurant delivers in terms of decor and overall ambiance. The whole restaurant feels exclusive and premium, yet suitable for family dining due to the large circular tables. Their private rooms were gigantic! Food Must order : Roasted Crispy Chicken, Hainan Rice, Water King Prawn with Egg Noodles Foie Gras, Pecking Duck with Pearl Rice (IDR 168k) Bite sized appetizer consisting of peking duck with incredibly crispy skin. Their sauce paired amazingly with the duck and the rice. Caramelized Wild Salmon (IDR 118k) A delight for customers with sweet tooth. The salmon was cooked perfectly, and covered with a shell of crystallized sugar. Addition of saltiness from the sauce, fragrance from the herbs, and sourness of the citrus paired nicely with the salmon. Mango Prawn Ball (IDR 138k) This dish was shaped similar to quaill eggs. The prawn taste was prominent, not smelly in any way. Texture wise, it's slightly bouncy. Slight sourness of mango paired really nicely with the prawn balls. Water King Prawn with Egg Noodles (IDR 168k) Huge water king prawns served with crispy egg noodles and salty-umami-sticky sauce. For me, this is Pearl's play on the classic Seafood Ifumie. The noodles were eggy and delicious, the prawns were fresh, and the sauce was out of this world. One of my favorite dishes of the night. Seafood Set Menu (A choice between Mud crab (588k++) or lobster (788k++)) This menu can be enjoyed by minimum 2 guests, as it consists of huge mud crab/lobster + seafood king prawn + river prawn + sea group fillet + mussels + US scallops + mix greens. This menu is also included with roasted crispy chicken with cucumber salad, steam rice or hainan chicken rice, and Ice lemon tea. We tried the Mud Crab package paired with their signature blackpepper sauce. The sauce was bold and suited the seafood well. While the seafood tasted fresh and amazing, I want to say that my absolute favorite dish of the night was their Roasted Crispy Chicken. The meat was sooo tenderrr I'm not even kidding. The flavor was amazing. The crispy skin was perfect. Best Chinese style Roasted Chicken, perhaps, Best Chicken dish, ever!! Their Hainan Chicken Rice was just the perfect pair to the Roasted Chicken. Best Hainan Chicken Rice I have ever had, hands down. The texture is perfect, the seasoning was spot on, it's simply delicious. Chilled Lemongrass Jelly, Dragon Fruits and Kafir Lime Sorbet (IDR 58k) For dessert, we tried their light, less guilty jelly. Super refreshing!

Lack of service short waitress/waiter, so we have to wait for along time if we ask something. The atmosphere are not good too...
