Our must-haves are the tender and savoury Ayam Bali (marinated charcoal-grilled chicken) and the utterly sinful Tahu Telor (deep-fried bean curd topped with omelette). I cannot help but order these two dishes every time we visit.
We also had Ayam Gulai (Indonesian-style curry chicken with herbs) which was quite average and Tumis Buncis Belachan (stir-fried french beans with belachan chilli), and ended with a most wonderfully simple buttery dessert of Alpukat (blended avocado topped with palm sugar and ice shavings).
I must say the french beans were the highlight this round. They tasted so fresh and were cooked to the perfect timing – crunchy, yet not raw-tasting.
You may need a reservation if you visit for weekday lunch. Go on a Saturday night if you prefer a quieter meal.
Disclaimer: I am not an expert in Indonesian food, so I don’t really know how “authentically Indonesian” this may be. But, good food is universal, right? And this definitely fits the bill of good food.
