Last week, I got the opportunity to visit Hong Tang, the infamous Taiwanese dessert restaurant in Muara Karang. Personally, I am always a HUGE fan of Taiwanese desserts, especially everything related to bubbles, pearl, you name it. However, I had never tried this place before because their outlets are very far from my house. Now they already have 3 outlets (1st is Muara Karang, 2nd is PIK, and third one is Central Park) and will open its new outlets soon in Summarecon Mall Serpong, Baywalk Pluit, and Grand Indonesia.

What I love about Taiwanese desserts are that they are very colorful, tasty, and satisfying. Before I knew Hong Tang, I always buy my “dosages” in Black Ball, another nice Taiwanese dessert shops, which can be found even in Bali (Beachwalk Kuta). I have heard so many reviews saying that Hong Tang is probably the best one in the town so I really couldn’t wait to try theirs!
I was quite surprised with the variation of the menu, and had little trouble deciding because everything looks so delicious! They name everything in numbers so that makes things easier, I guess.
|11 (Green Bean, Lotus, Pearl) – IDR 29.000|
|15 (Honey bean, Zimi, Pearl) – IDR 29.000|
|78 (Ice Cream, Zimi, Pearl) – IDR 39.000|
|26 (Pudding, Mochi, Pearl) – IDR 29.000|
|35 (Honey bean, Zimi, Pearl) – IDR 29.000|
|59 (Taiwan Douhua with Lotus) – IDR 23.000|
|27 (Q Ball, Pearl, Tangyuan Peanut) – IDR 26.000|
Seriously I was so amazed by the taste and size of the portion! I just love everything, from the grass jelly to the pearl. The nicest part is that their desserts are not too sweet, and I didn’t feel bloated after eating. I also tried the douhua, which appeared to be some kind of tofu, and the ginger was so strong I felt it was so good for medication! XD
I am totally recommending this place to get your dosage of Taiwanese desserts, thumbs up!
