Sulaiman Chinese Muslim Restaurant

Usually when hearing about Chinese restaurant, the menu contain pork or the menu it self not to identical with its root. So I'm a bit curious when a friend told me that there's Chinese Muslim Restaurant. Look at their banner here, Arabic and China letter look great together.


Entering into Sulaiman restaurant, its not that spacious. It probably only fit 25 peoples. So if it full packed, you have to be patience to be seated.


Here in Sulaiman, you can choose many kind of food Xin Jiang style. They separated it into 5 categories.
There are Rice, Pulled Noodle, Wok / Stir Fry, Grilled / Roast and Toasted Bread.  All look tempting to be try. If you don't feel familiar with the menu, don't worry, the server always ready explain it to you.


Since we carnivore, so most of ordered menu was about meat and meat. So keep scrolling...


SATE DAGING KAMBING ( ROASTED MUTTON KEBABS ) - IDR 8.000 / skewer
Ordered satay here, not imagine like you ordering satay in everywhere else, where there's peanut butter and soy sauce like it usual. Here in Sulaiman, the roasted mutton kebab  use an iron skewer. With a pretty thick cut of the meat. When usually I smell the weird smell from the mutton, but not with this mutton kebab. All I smell was the fragrant herbs from it. With the perfect grilled, make the herbs soak into the meat perfectly. It also tender and taste so great. 


PAHA KAMBING BERGIZI (MUTTON LEG) - IDR 70.000
Another mutton menu. Like the mutton kebab above, the mutton taste good without any weird smell. Taste a bit spicy. The fat make the herbs spread to the meat. And it was make it more good.


MIE AYAM (CHICKEN NOODLE) - IDR 40.000
For a soup menu, try this one. This chicken noodle is the champion. It so good and fragrant. Everything cooked with the right consistency. The noodle soft and not too mushy, the chicken was tender, the potato also not overcooked. yes it looked spicy with the red soup. But it not that spicy. It more taste tomato in it. With a hint taste of herbs that I just know that the name is "Szechuan Peppercorn" that give a kick taste to this menu. 


MIE DAGING SAPI BERKUAH (BEEF SOUP NOODLE) - IDR 35.000
Sulaiman gave the very generous amount of tender beef to this noodle menu. Even though the soup look so oily, but the taste still great. The broth is tasty.


TERONG PANGGANG ( GRILLED EGGPLANT) - IDR 12.000
The amazing taste come from a simple dish. It just a grilled eggplant. But since it seasoned well, most of it with garlic, it become so yummy.


KUE GEPENG BAKAR (GRILLED FLAT BREAD) - IDR 8.000
It similar with naan bread from India. It plain but it have a million taste. The texture is chewy. You have it with curry or just like I did. I rolled it with the mutton kebab. It still taste great though. Just use your creativity and have like as you like.

A view weeks after my 1st visit, I come back here again with my hubby. I'm so excited to tell him about this extra ordinary menu. And here are what we ordered...


NASI DAGING KAMBING + DAUN BAWANG GORENG CEPAT  (MUTTON RICE with FRIED GREEN ONION) - IDR 35.000
Mutton with tomato as a sauce. The portion pretty huge for 1 person. The thickness from the sauce plus the rice make the one who eat it feel full easily. The mutton is tender. The garlic and the green onion make it more fragrant.


DAGING KAMBING ZIRAN (FRIED MUTTON WITH CUMIN) - IDR 80.000
So curious with this menu. First because the "ziran" word. But it basically mutton that fried with some spices like cumin and chilli flakes. Served with coriander and leaves as a balancing to this mutton fried. I paired this fried mutton with the flat bread. And it so good.

Overall, I really enjoy XinJiang dish that Sulaiman restaurant served. I'm not a big fan of mutton. But Sulaiman gave me another experience through their menus. But kinda sad, now they moved their restaurant from Wahid Hasyim near Sabang Street that also very close to my office. Now they had new location that far from my reach in Batu Ceper Area huhuuu.... Hope I can visit their new site someday.
