Friday Finds ☆ Kinara Indian Restaurant ☆ Kemang, Jakarta キナラ インド料理


Do you like Indian food? My husband and I do! Now our kids are older they started to eat Indian food and it’s nice that we all can enjoy the Indian cuisine together. Kinara in Kemang is one of the restaurants we like to go in town. The owner of Hide-N-Skin, Gerry, is originally from India, so when I asked for recommendation, he recommended Kinara in Kemang for Sunday Brunch. I have not been to their Sunday Brunch yet, but I have been to Kinara a couple of times for lunch and dinner. My culinary experiences as well as dining experiences have always been pleasant and their ambiance makes you feel like you have traveled to some place in India. Kinara is located in the same general area of Kemang as Chic Mart (Indonesian Gift Shop), KOI Kemang (Cafe Restaurant & Furniture Gallery, Western and Asian Food), Anatolia (Turkish/Middle Eastern), A TavoLa (Italian), and dia.lo.gue (Store and Art Gallery), so if you go there, you might want to check out these places as well.

I just learned by looking at Kinara’s homepage that they deliver food to your home as well! Pizza delivery is very common, but it would be a nice change for you to order Indian food, don’t you think?

Speaking of Indian food delivery, there is “tamarind by Tastes of India”, which is also located in Kemang. We’ve used Tamarind by Tastes of India for dinner at home twice in the recent past and it has been great!! I highly recommend this restaurant for delivery as well.

I learned from the Online Family Guide To Jakarta page (BTW, this page is awesome!!) that the owner of Tastes of India, Molina, teaches Indian cooking classes at Jakarta International Community Center. How fun would it be to learn how to make Indian food at home?

インド料理はお好きですか?夫と私は大好きなんです。ケマンにあるインド料理レストラン「キナラ」は、最近の私達のお気に入り。娘達も成長してきて、インド料理を食べてくれるようになり、インド料理を家族で楽しめるようになりました。キナラのインド料理は味も良いですし、居心地よくお食事ができると感じます。Hide-N-Skinのオーナーのゲリーさんは、元々インド出身で、インド料理で彼のお勧めを伺ったところ、キナラの日曜ブランチはとてもお勧めだと教えて下さいました。ブランチは未だに試していないのですが、ランチと夕食に行った事あり、とても良かったです。エギゾチックなインテリアが、インドのどこかの街へ連れてこられたような気にさせてくれます。キナラは、Chic Mart (インドネシアの雑貨屋), KOI Kemang (カフェレストランと家具のギャラリー、西洋料理
とアジアの料理), アナトリア (トルコ/中東料理), ア・タボーラ (イタリア料理), and ディアログ (雑貨店とアートギャラリー)のあるケマンの地域と同じ場所にありますので、キナラに行かれた際にこれらの他の場所もチェックしてみると楽しいかもしれません。

ウェブサイトを見ていたら、キナラは食事のデリバリーもしてくれるそう。デリバリーとなると、ピザになりがちなのですが、時には代わりにインド料理の配達なども良いかもしれないですよね。電話番号は上の情報を参照下さい。

デリバリーと言えば、インド料理をデリバリーしてくれる場所がもう一カ所あります。同じくケマンにあるtamarind by Tastes of Indiaです。こちらは既に私たちは2回ほど利用した経験があり、美味しかったです。デリバリーに関しては、こちらもお勧めです。

Tastes of Indiaのオーナーのモリナさんは、ケマンにあるジャカルタ・インターナショナル・コミュニティー・センサーでインド料理のクラスも教えられているそう。家でインド料理が作れるようになったら良いですよね!!

Last night we were at the Ben Folds concert in Jakarta with our friends. The two hours of incredible solo performance by Ben Folds was just amazing. Ben Folds is an amazingly talented artist. His talks between songs were witty and funny while his piano performance and singing were outstanding. He worked the Indonesian crowd which was really cool to see. His music gave me a sweet taste of feeling back home (my second home, the U.S.).

昨日26日の晩、ジャカルタで行われたベン・フォルズのコンサートに行ってきました。今調べてみたら、今週末からは日本で公演するみたいですね。良いな!2時間に及ぶベンフォルズの演奏には圧倒されました。彼は稀に見る才能の持ち主だと思います。コンサート中、曲と曲の間に面白い冗談を飛ばしてインドネシア人の観客を魅了するチャーミングな一面も見せていました。(英語がちゃんと分かっていて、インドネシア人ってすごいですね。)ベンフォルズのコンサートでは、私にとっての第二の故郷であるアメリカに戻った様な、甘い気分に浸らせてもらいました。

    Have you tried Ganesha ek Sanskriti (http://www.ganeshaeksanskriti.com) ? They also serve Sunday Brunch and I think it’s pretty good too. The locations are in Kemang and BRI II Building. I really like the Sunday Brunch there as they offer a really wide range of Northern Indian Cuisine. Usually I go to the BRI II one, since the location is more convenient from my house. They also have 15% discount for the member. You just need to spend IDR 500k to get the membership, and you’ll get 15% discount for your next visit. Geez, now I sound like I’m the marketing people of Ganesha hahaha…

      No, I haven’t been to Hazzara! Cool!! Thanks for letting me know! I have to check it out!!! I love hearing about where others like to go, so I really appreciate that you told me about Hazzara. We ordered saag paneer (mwah!), chicken with coconut sauce something and lamb curry or something. Sorry I couldn’t remember the name well… Loved everything though!!

    Thanks for posting. I’m moving to Jakarta in two weeks for the first time and I’m a bit nervous but your blog is putting me at ease-so many great new places to discover.

    • says

      I understand your anxiety! That’s normal. No worries though! There are so many places to discover and so much to do just in Jakarta. I’m glad I am able to help you ease up on your upcoming move. Good luck with the move!!

    Kaho, I love Indian food. In here we can get it everyday (but really need to avoid it to eat everyday). I love both North and South Indian style. We normally have Roti Channai or Puri or Naan or Capati with Dhal for Sunday breakfast :). And once in a while banana leaf rice and the complete condiment for dinner. Lovely ambiance too…:)
