Exploring Chinese Culinary Delights

Original text “Jelajah Rasa ala Negeri Tirai bambu” by Dicky Zulkarnaen, published on Network! Magazine

Dragon Court offers varied oriental cuisines with very affordable prices but without scarifying the quality and taste.

China has been worldly known with its culture and traditions. The Chinese culinary arts and traditions have traveled cross countries, reaching nations outside of the continent. And most of the famous Chinese menus have blended with local traditions. This is the reason why Sheraton Media Hotel & Towers has recently concerned on exploring Chinese cuisines in its Dragon Court. This restaurant offers vast selections of Chinese cuisines, from mainly Cantonese, Szechuan and some Indo-Chinese twisted creations.

Dragon Court is nestled in the lobby area of Sheraton Media Hotel & Towers Jakarta. If you are approaching the hotel’s upper lobby area, the restaurant is located right in the left side from the main guest’s lift. The restaurant’s wooden signboard is uniquely carved with Chinese accents, welcoming everyone who enters the door. The interior is dominated with bright wooden furniture and decorations that give modern, yet clean impression. This restaurant can accommodate up to 150 persons including the 4 VIP rooms. If you wish to have a more privacy in your function, it is suggested to book the VIP room that allows you to seat conveniently maximum 10 persons per room.

The restaurant has recently introduced a new promotion named “Dragon Feast All-you-can-eat promotion” that allows you to taste delicious 27-course set menus right on your table. All meals are served on set menu style but I can freely select my favorite menus and re-order if I wish to have some more of them.

Dimsum menu is the best starter. I prefer to have 2 menus which were steamed Siomay and Beancurd Springroll with Oyster Sauce. To be honest, it’s worth to try them. Let’s move to the main course, in which I was recommended to have Deep Fried Fish Fillet with Black Bean Sauce and Singaporean Fried Chicken. If you have done tasting those culinary delights, then I suggest you not to miss the famous Gui Ling Gao as the dessert.

My conclusion; Dragon Court is clearly become a perfect destination for culinary recreation and I strongly recommend you to pay a visit to it.
