Yet another pork specialist has landed in Jakarta, more precisely in Pluit! Yay! Can't be denied that North Jakarta is the heaven of non-halal foods, either it's PIK, Gading, or Pluit. Probably because of the market is perfect for it. This place is called The Fat Pig and it's one with a carwash, though I don't remember the name of the carwash, sorry! :(
Now The Fat Pig here isn't only a Babi Guling specialist but also a specialist of other types of pork like Char Siew and Roast Pork, so..let's get porked! xD
Interior's is a simple and daring red container with dim lights. Well, you know what they say, red is the color to enhance your appetite, sort of?
Indeed, "praise the lard!" Lol!
There's a very spicy sambal matah and the green sauce there is super delicious! Tasty and very Balinese!
Well, actually I only ordered 1 menu here and that's;
BILLIONAIRE'S PIG IDR 250K
This is more of a roast meat dish, so there's roast duck, roast pork, char siew, and super crispy pork skin! The sauce is like those in Nasi Campur, the sweet-hoisin-like taste of sauce.
A closer look to the super deliciously crispy pork skin! Yum! :3
The glazey char siew!
That tempting roast pork!
And let's not forget the roast duck, though it's somehow out of place but still good!
There are also 6 satays and it's said that this is enough for 3 people. Well, it is enough but I kinda feel cheated as the meat and rice is not balanced. Personally didn't find this worth it..
Taste-wise, it's not something superb. It's good with all the Balinese spices but missing that wow factor. Maybe I should've gone with The Fat Pig Explosion IDR 225K instead. That one is filled with Babi Guling and stuffs but it's fine cause pork is never wrong..lol!
Anyways, congratulations for your opening! Wishing you lots of success!
