To celebrate Chinese New Year 2019, PIK Avenue is holding an event called “Taste Of Asia” which is happening from 25 January until 24 February 2019. The whole event includes many shows, expo and promotions, but the culinary theme is too interesting to be missed. There are Curated Food Expo, Tirta Lie Festival (30 Jan – 3 Feb), Kitchen Stage by Celebrity Chefs, and Crazy Angpao Rewards. We are so glad we could visit many times during the month and if you haven’t, you should go to join the hype!
We had great time joining the opening ceremony and dinner at NSNTR Restaurant at Mercure PIK on 25 Jan. The highlight of the dinner were the Soya BBQ Beef Short Ribs and Vegetable Pumpkin Yuzu Sauce, and the Kedondong Sorbet. We think we should come back again soon for more proper dining moment, LOL.
During the Opening Ceremony, we got to see this Dragon Dance, which is unique and impressive, because it was the first time I saw this kind of dragon dance. I am sure it took lots of time to practice this kind of act and with the Harp Performance afterwards, I was very much entertained the whole night.

Was lucky to get a glimpse of this Guzheng Orchestra by Miladomus Music School!
And the biggest reason why we love this event: TIRTA LIE FESTIVAL! Couldn’t count how many bowls of noodles and rice that we ate during our visits, but we were so glad we came. Basically the event showcased the proclaimed BEST 28 noodles and rice in Jabodetabek, which I believed was curated by Tirta Lie himself. The best thing of all, since the Taste of Asia event is held in North Jakarta, many PORK dishes!!! However, this festival was only 5 days long, from 30 Jan until 3 Feb only. This festival is simply a heaven for noodle and pork lovers, as there are many options and almost everything we tried was delicious.
The clock is ticking, let’s go to Taste of Asia in PIK Avenue because the event will end soon on 24 February! Ciao and see you!
