Today I had lunch at one of the famous Indonesian restaurants named “Shalom.” This restaurant is located in St Lucia, next to my university. I really like the atmosphere of this restaurant, and the food is so delicious. I see that the chefs are Indonesian, so I guess the taste is authentic 🙂 I went there with other two friends of mine, and we ordered different dishes.
My Burmese friend had this fish, “Ikan Bakar/Goreng Woku” with rice. I had one bite of her food, and I quite liked it actually. However, I think it is a bit too sweet for me.
Another friend and I had chicken where I guessed our chicken dishes were the same. The only difference was the sauce. While my friend’s sauce was made of green chilli, mine was made of red chilli, and the tastes were different. As my friend could not eat spicy food, I ended up having both sauces–haha, bonus!
My friend dish is called “Ayam Presto Kremes Padang”, yum yum!
I had a set of rice called, “Nasi Timbel Ayam Bakar.” I like the sour soup that came with this set, but I must say the dried fish was superb!
We also ordered beef lung. I must say I really enjoyed all the dishes (I took a bite of each of my friend’s food). I wonder if my understanding that Ayam means chicken is correct.
To our Indonesian out there, what is your favourite Indonesian food? Do the dishes we ordered look authentic to you?
