La Hoya is one of the new restaurants in South Jakarta, precisely in Gandaria City Mall. La Hoya is also one restaurant under the auspices of Arena Gourmet, which is already quite popular with other restaurants, such as  HongKong Cafe, Seribu Rasa, Delika, Tatsuya and Penang Bistro.

On this time, La Hoya comes with the concept of Tex-Mex (Texas - Mexican), so this restaurant contains a touch of American taste. Therefore, you will find a menu like ribs, Hamburgers, BBQ Chicken Wings, Salmon Steaks, etc.

And for the interior, La Hoya has the concept of home-style Mexico, may be seen from the decorations used. In addition, this place is very comfortable to relax with friends or family.

El Ponche, was a mocktail with a mix of orange, lychee, passion fruit, grenadine and soda. The sensation of this reddish orange drink was so fruity and playful flavors. So fresh!

Caribbean Mango, just another sweet mocktail! A sweetness of mango was perfectly blend and topped with a slice of orange and strawberry.
