To satisfy our cravings without the need to hassle around the queue line, Sushi Kiosk is ready to bring you the quick and fresh sushi on the go.

Nowadays, the increasingly busy Jakartans need more than just fast food to satiate their hunger during rush hours. While everyone now aspires to become a hipster foodie by visiting the latest “it” restaurants in town, they are also well-equipped with the know-how about the healthy aspect of food as well.

The newly rebranded Sushi Kiosk is up to the task of marrying the latter and challenges the hegemony of fast food. With the concept of “grab and go”; Sushi Kiosk presents a vast and colorful array of traditional and fusion sushi, sashimi, onigiri and Japanese lunch boxes for the busy, sushi loving crowd.

Sushi Kiosk introduce grab-and-go concept for the busy, sushi loving crowds amongst Jakartans.

For Sushi Kiosk, the confidence arises from the fact that they are managed by PT Sushi Tei Indonesia, known with its experience in sushi business worldwide and has a huge number of following in Indonesia. Additionally, the “grab and go” concept that Sushi Kiosk introduces is among the first in the country.

We hope that through our concept here, our customers will still be able to spoil their palate for quality sushi in a more practical way”.

The rich lineup of sushi and sashimi starts from everybody’s favorite such as the tuna, salmon, eel, sweet beancurd, tamago, and also the ebi. In the onigiri section, Sushi Kiosk introduces the highly affordable salmon, chicken, or yakiniku onigiris and you can also choose the temaki-style for bigger portion.

For those who aim for something savory and warm, Sushi Kiosk offers small nibbles from inari ring and takoyaki, and up to fried garlic rice, chicken katsu, or even the signatures such as Stamina Roll and the alluring Dragon Roll.

What’s also interesting for big eaters or party planners, Sushi Kiosk actually offers a lineup of platters consisting of dozens of sushi and maki for a very reasonable price and actually contains pretty much of everyone’s favorites from the classic type and also the fusion rolls. It would be a really good idea to share this among your friends and family over the weekend or with the coworkers as lunch.

Having won the plaudits of foodies from many corners of the world, Tim Ho Wan has now arrived in Indonesia’s capital. You are in for a real treat.

Despite its initial appearance as a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that received one Michelin star a few years ago back in Hong Kong, Tim Ho Wan proclaims itself as the “most affordable” among its other peers that have received the same recognition.

The restaurant has also reached the shores of Jakarta to support its expansion, with the recent launch of Tim Ho Wan’s first outlet in Indonesia at Pantai Indah Kapuk. Its presence has added to the list of those serving dim sum in the capital.

“Tim Ho Wan prepares the food fresh after the orders came in from the customers.”

Dim sum joints have now become more popular than ever here. The traditional Chinese-style food for sharing that comprises a myriad of selections is a favorite for banquets and family brunch among Jakartans now.

With the mushrooming of F&B outlets across Jakarta and Greater area, foodies in the capital always welcome something new and exciting in the culinary world. This includes their welcome to the newly opened Jakarta’s Tim Ho Wan.

Similar to its prolific predecessor from Hong Kong, the good reputation attracts people who simply came in flocking from every corner of Jakarta to give a taste of serious dim sum.

Tim Ho Wan was first established by a duet of talented chefs, Mak Kwai Pui and Leung Fai Keung. The former was known previously with his spell at the kitchen of Four Seasons Hong Kong.

Famous for its signature four dishes labeled as “Big Four Heavenly Kings”, it will be an experience of its own trying their BBQ baked buns, steamed egg cakes, the cheong fen or the vermicelli rolls, and the pan-fried carrot cakes. While originally Tim Ho Wan serves its food mostly with pork, there are also alternative choices to cater those with dietary restrictions.

While specializing in dim sum and striving all the time for quality, Tim Ho Wan prepares the food fresh after the orders came in from the customers. The queues might be challenging to come by but with successful outlets spanning in countries such as Singapore, Australia, Taiwan, Malaysia and the Philippines; it’s a must-not miss experience for anyone.

“Currently, Tim Ho Wan opens only the first floor for the customers but hopefully in May, the second and third floors will be opened for private rooms and banquets”, says Michael Go, operational director of Tim Ho Wan restaurant in Indonesia.

After the opening of its first outlet in Jakarta, we expect to see more of Tim Ho Wan in other places across Indonesia in the near future. Let’s cross our fingers for that.
