May Star

I had a pleasant Thursday lunch at Maystar, Emporium Pluit Mall. I love Maystar's lunch menu, because of the "Dim Sum" they served and rice set dishes. If you go there during dinner time, you only get to order the main dishes which are also very yummy too. But however, lunch menu has more variety!!

Menu : Double Boiled Minced Pigeon in Mini Bamboo
Price : Rp 28,000 ++
Score : 6.25 / 10

>> Very calming soup and the pigeon meat is very tender and easy to chew. Ideal soup for the elders. The soup gave me an impression taste of 'tonic'. The herbs was not too strong.

Menu : Nasi Iga Babi Pedas Panggang
Price : Rp 32,800 ++
Score : 7.0 / 10

>> The honey pork is yummy, but sadly too much bones and they should provide more vegetables on the side too. The hainam rice is good and wants you to have more :)

Menu : Hakkau, Steamed Beef Ball Hong Kong Style & Siu Mai
Price : Hakkau Rp 17,800 ++, Steamed Beef Ball Rp 16,800++ & Siu Mai Rp 17,800++
Score : Average 7.5 / 10
>> All of the dim sum were very fresh; the prawns in the Hakkau & Siu Mai were succulent. The beef ball were very tender and has an unique taste too.
Menu : Steamed Scallop Clam with Minced Garlic
Price : Rp 18,000++ / piece
Score : 7.5 / 10

>> Good stuff here! I love the minced garlic sauce, even though it is a little bit over oily, I simply just love it. The scallop were fresh and very well cooked.
Menu : Shrimp and Mushroom Dumpling with Spicy Vinegar
Price : Rp 16,800++
Score : 7.5 / 10

>> I was surprised when I saw the price. I thought this was quite cheap. Apart from the good price tag, this is a definite order every time I visit Maystar at lunch time. The vinegar sauce is strong and spicy thus, I wouldn't recommend this for people who has mild pallet.
Menu : Coconut Pudding
Price : Rp 42,800 ++
Score : 8.0 / 10

>> One of the best coconut pudding in town, even better their rival Duck King's. The sweetness and the tender pudding simply melts in your mouth! Heavenly soft :)

Menu : Avocado Cream with Ice Cream
Price : Rp 18,800 ++
Score : 5.5 / 10

>> The avocado cream was actually nice, the only short coming was that, they should serve coffee ice cream instead of chocolate ice cream.

Address : Emporium Pluit Mall 4th Floor
