Aloha~~ Have you ever tried Hawaiian Cuisine? Well, unlike Italian or Japanese cuisine that can be easily found everywhere in Indonesia, Hawaiian Cuisine is still pretty rare in Indonesia but now you can explore it at L&L Hawaiian Barbecue – Central Park Mall Jakarta.
For those of you who are not familiar with it, Hawaiian cuisine is more likely to fusion cuisine due to the influence of immigrant workers from China, Korea, Japan, Philippines, and Portugal that have arrived in Hawaii long time ago. That’s why it’s very common to find a plate of dish with lot’s of influences for example US burger patty, Japanese seasoning/ ingredients, Korean BBQ, etc.
One of the most famous Hawaiian food chains in United States is L&L Hawaiian Barbecue originated from Hawaii since 1976 and it’s now available in Jakarta at Central Park Mall 3rd floor, let’s move to the menu.
Hawaiian Iced Tea IDR 28k
This is a kind of fruit tea that I love. It has perfect balance of tea and fruit flavor, very refreshing yet fruity with peach and pineapple in it. Highly recommended.
Seafood Platter (Fish, Shrimp, and Calamari) IDR 90k
For starter, this one could be a great choice as it has a lil bit of everything starting from deep fried crunchy dory fish fillet, shrimp katsu and calamari served with fries and garden salad. The portion is very generous it’s suitable for sharing.
Loco Moco (with gravy sauce) IDR 68k
Loco Moco is one of the most famous and signature Hawaiian dishes that you must not miss. It consists of rice topped with 2 hamburger patty topped with mushroom gravy and sunny side up served with macaroni salad. It’s comforting and addicting, AnakJajan must say that L&L Hawaiian Barbecue version of Loco Moco is good.
BBQ Beef Dry Noodle IDR 53k
A bowl of dry noodle with grilled Australian beef, soy marinated egg, pineapple and nori seaweed flakes accompanied by seafood broth. Meat was nicely grilled and well marinated with lovely charred aroma while the seafood broth was very rich yet comforting and the egg was incredibly tasty, marinated very well up to the yolk. FYI, the noodle menu is also available in soup version, I bet it’s going to be as good as the dry version
Ramen Burger with Fries IDR 38k
If you usually have your burger with burger bun or bread, then you must see the unique Ramen Burger at L&L Hawaiian Barbecue. Happens to be one of the best selling menu here, for the burger instead of regular bun, they switch it with ramen noodle. The noodle was dense yet springy, it goes really well with the beef patty. FYI, L&L Hawaiian Barbecue here in Indonesia serves Halal version of Hawaiian food, therefore they don’t have pork menu.
Matcha Shaved Iced IDR 30k
Cold and light matcha shaved ice with red beans, mochi and green tea ice cream. A light yet refreshing option to end the meal.
Overall, Hawaiian cuisine may still not common yet in Jakarta but the dishes from L&L Hawaiian Barbecue were pretty delicious, comforting and definitely suitable for Indonesian palate, it could be a new and great experience, so why don’t you give it a try and experience a lil bit of Hawaiian taste.
