31 Days in Jakarta Day 10
Last week was Chinese Mid Autumn Festival, we went to May Star, an upper market Chinese restaurant to enjoy some authentic Chinese fest.
There are many Chinese restaurants in Jakarta and May Star is one of the best. May Star is especially famous for the Dim Sum menu it serves. Its Dim Sum is tasty and fresh, one of the best among the many Dim Sum restaurant in Jakarta.
According to Worldwide Cost of Living Survey 2012, Jakarta is ranked no. 61 , up 8 places from last year. It is actually not cheap to eat in a good restaurant in Jakarta, especially when sea food is involved.

May Star serves sea food, chicken, pork, vegetables among many other things. Fish is seasonal price and is quite expensive. Luckily, we took advantage of the 30% off by paying with credit card.
In Jakarta, there are always promotions on in various restaurants. If you own a credit card, you can certainly take advantage of the deals from the restaurants, the savings can be as high as 50%.
(Steamed Fish, IDR 275,000, 1 USD = IDR 9,600)
(Chicken Grilled Chef Choice, IDR 62,000, 1 USD = IDR 9,600)
(Mapo Toufu, IDR 60,000, 1 USD = IDR 9,600)
(Baby Pak Choy Garlic, IDR 66,000, 1 USD = IDR 9,600)
We enjoyed all the dishes we have. Next time we want to try the Dim Sum menu in May Star.
