Ta Chia - Muara Karang Jakarta

On the first day of Lebaran Holiday, many restaurant closed that day due to the shortage of employees or waiters and such that went 'mudik' :D. So i decided to go the China Town of Jakarta which obviously is Muara Karang, Pluit. Restaurant over there usually open during Lebaran Holiday. Then to cut the story short, i find this restaurant.

Not so many people know this Chinese restaurant. Located at Jalan Pluit Karang Timur or also known as Muara Karang area. Ta Chia restaurant is a Chinese Restaurant that served various Chinese and Indonesian food. They are quite famous of their Bak Kut Teh.

Bak Kut Teh

You can choose whether you want the pork tenderloin, ribs, intestine or all mixed. Also it is available in small portion, medium or large.

Actually it is really a good dish. I personally like it very much. The soup's flavor is very light, different from another restaurant bak kut teh which tasted and smelled really heavy with herbs and spice. I am not a fan of intestine, so i ordered the ribs. It got a nice texture and flavor from the soup. It is a recommended dish if you are going to this restaurant.

Rate : 8.0 / 10

Kecap Kaki Babi

Another pork dish and one of my favorite part of a pork, the leg ! Chinese people like to cook and eat this a lot. Their pork leg actually was quite good too. There's a part that too chewy but it's normal since it's a pork leg. The sauce was sweet and not to runny.

Rate : 7.0 / 10

Mun Mie

Because of the crowd, this noodle took the chef almost 30 minutes to cook. I mean, i waited that long, don't know what the reason, but my guess is maybe because of the crowd.

The noodle was good, nice texture cooked with egg and Chinese cabbage. Looks and tasted a bit like a Hor Fan (Kwetiaw Siram).

Rate : 7.5  /10

Cah Pocai

Always like Chinese style of fried vegetables dish. Simple and delicious. Only requires garlic and salt and the vegetables itself.

Rate : 7.0 / 10

Sate Babi

Finally, some Indonesian food. They have 2 kinds of satay, chicken and pork. This time, i ordered pork. The peanut sauce was really good and the satay itself was grilled perfectly. Recommended dish here too.

Rate : 8.0 / 10

Well, i never have other drink than Chinese Tea if i'm eating at a Chinese restaurant. It is healthy and gave you the kind of peaceful and relax feeling.

Well guys, this restaurant has just become one of my favorite Chinese restaurant. So if you ever go to or even just passing by Muara Karang area, you should try them out !
