Friday Finds ☆ Turkuaz Turkish Restaurant Jakarta

September 16, 2011


Turkuaz is a Turkish restaurant in Jakarta. One of the owners and chief chef from Turkey at Turkuaz used to work for Anatolia in Kemang for a long time. He left Anatolia and opened Turkuaz. My friend wanted some Mediterranean food, so I thought of Anatolia and the new Turkish restaurant, Turkuaz, my friend told me about. As I am always up for trying a place I have not gone before (which can be tricky sometimes), I decided to take my friend to Turkuaz. We both were happy with our decision and what we ordered and came out of Turkuaz very satisfied. Main course ranged from Rp. 50,000 – 90,000 for vegetarian up to Rp. 110,000 – Rp. 200,000+ for a plate with meat. Parsley, tomato and couscous salad (like tabouli) we ordered was about Rp. 45,000 (US$5). Our lunch turned out about Rp. 200,000 (US$22) per person.

When I was looking for the location of Turkuaz online to list it on my blog (my friend gave me directions on the day I went there), I stumbled upon a blog post on jakarta 100 bars which I have encountered before when I was searching for another restaurant in Jakarta. I like this blog because of the photos and personal reviews. His reviews are very helpful. This time I was quite surprised to see that the angles of the photos on jakarta 100 bars and the three of the photos I took are very similar. His photos were taken before mine, so my photos look like I copied his, but I had not seen the photos on jakarta 100 bars until after I have already taken my photos at Turkuaz and I did not copy his angles! I swear!

Turkuazとはジャカルタにできた新しいトルコ料理レストランです。トルコ人のオーナーであり、シェフでもある方は、以前長い期間クマンにあるアナトリアというレストランで働いていたそうです。一緒に居た友人は、地中海料理が食べたいということで、クマンのアナトリアか、友人が勧めてくれた新しくグナワルマン通りにできたトルコアーズ(Turkuaz)どちらにするか考えていました。私は行った事の無いレストランへ行くのが好きなので、結局トルコアーズ(Turkuaz)へ行くことにしました。トルコアーズ(Turkuaz)に行って良かったです。友人と二人でとても満足してレストランを後にしました。ベジタリアンのメインコースだと50,000ルピアから90,000ルピアくらいで、お肉が付くメインコースは110,000ルピアから200,000ルピアくらいでした。パセリ、トマトとクスクスのサラダ(タブーリ)は、45,000ルピア程でした。今回のランチには、一人200,000ルピア(US$22)ほどになりました。

トルコアーズ(Turkuaz)の住所をこちらに載せるためにオンラインで調べていた時(レストランへ行った当日は、友人から行きかたを教わりました)、ジャカルタ100のバーというブログが出てきました。以前他のレストランを調べていた時に同じブログを見た事があります。写真着きで、個人的なレストランの批評が好きな私は、気に入ったのを覚えています。今回ジャカルタ100のバーに掲載されているトルコアーズ(Turkuaz)の写真が私の撮った写真のうちの3枚とあまりにも似ているので、びっくりしてしまいました。彼の写真の方が私より先に撮られているので、まるで私が真似をしているように見えると思うのですが、私の写真を撮影した後までジャカルタ100のバーのブログは見ていなかったので、写真を真似た訳では無いのです!あしからず。

    I love the lanterns!! I saw something very similar in Thailand where we were over the summer (although it wasn’t even a middle eastern restaurant), and I took some pictures, which didn’t turn good… they are simply lovely. I would love to buy one if I ever get the chance!!

    Hi Kaho! I think your photos are very professional.

    Seems Jakarta has everything. I’m so happy you are still discovering new places. haven’t been around blogworld much. Life has been busy with work, just work. I get home exhausted that I literally crash on the sofa! I still haven’t found the rhythm at work, (i’m always behind on paperwork, etc..etc..so I’m hoping in a few months, that will change) I’m not complaining because it’s good to have a job, I’m grateful, but you know, once you feel comfortable about your current status, then you begin to complain (It’s difficult, so I’m biting my tongue)LOL

      Thank you~!! You’re so nice! You don’t sound complaining at all to me. No worries. I would be exhausted if I worked and still took care of family at the same time. I’m sorry I haven’t been around on your blog. I subscribe your blog, so I do see your posts on email though. I need to come visit you and leave comments! Thanks for coming to visit me!!
