Fook Yew Gandaria City Jakarta

August 24th, 2016. After meet-up with my high school friends, I went to Gandaria City and met Brian there. We waited for Hans to come. Hurry up Hans!! Hurry up!! I was so hungry at the time. LOL. Yes, we wanna try some dishes from a restaurant there. Fook Yew.

FOOK YEW Shanghai Bistro and Bubble Tea Lab is a fun casual Chinese eatery inspired by the tasty delicacies from the streets of Shanghai, set in an old-fashioned Chinese-pop-style canteen. 

FOOK YEW serves an exciting re-interpretation of classic Shanghai comfort food highlighted by its delicious SHENG JIAN BAO (Shanghainese Pan Fried Bun) and fun beverage creations from its innovative BUBBLE TEA LAB. Open all day, from brunch all through late night, the basic idea behind FOOK YEW is to present a different kind of fun ambiance you have never come across in other traditional Chinese bistros/restaurants. The interior and design concept integrate various fun classic Chinese clichés such as Chinese zodiacs, Chinese movies, Kung-Fu School, Chinese Pop Art, and many more.

FOOK YEW is dashing, funky Chinese, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. And remember… it’s NOT MADE IN CHINA.

classic milk tea with bubble

Best milk tea ever. Well, I never like milk tea hahaha. But this one, it’s really different. Since the first time I tried, until now, it’s still tasted the same. DELICIOUS! Yup, the one and only milk tea that I like so far.

Xiao Gan Olive Fried Rice 47k

Love it. When I first saw this olive rice, I thought, “I won’t wanna try it. It doesn’t look good.” Well, you can see the colour. Black. Not tempting, right? But turned out, it’s VERY delicious. Well, I forced myself to try it, and couldn’t stop. By the way, I thought it came with squid. No, it’s not squid. It’s mushroom. Enoki, I guess. LOL.

Guangzhou Crispy Duck (1/4) 115k

They said, “Our insanely delicious Guangzhou Crispy Duck is definitely worth hauling your bum out of bed for! Come one, come all!” And I said, “OMG! Tender and tasty crispy duck. OMG! Gimme more!” How to eat this one? Put it together in the bun. Just like the photo below.

Stir-fried Prawn with Gong Bao Sauce 97k

Cute presentation. The homemade fried bun is like a bowl. And very tasty. The Gong Bao Sauce is enhanced the flavour of the stir-fried prawn. Well, I love it. Really really love it. Perfectly good.
