Binge – Here's Where To Go For Unpretentious, Hearty Indonesian Food!

The hubs has a thing for spicy food, being part Peranakan. But whenever we decide to hunt down some Indonesian food, it always proves elusive, especially since we don’t like wading into the crowds at Orchard Road! But I was recently reminded of two Indonesian restaurants that skirts the busy town area, and if your dad is a person who likes hot flavours, here are two unpretentious places to head for.
Garuda Padang Cuisine recently opened a branch at Far East Square serving up pretty good Padang fare. Apart from a la carte, I didn’t know you could also have a buffet for lunch and dinner. Must tries, according to sources, are the Ayam Bumbu Goreng, their signature dish of crispy chicken with ‘floss’; beef tendon curry and tumis kang kong, which is one of the less spicy items on their list. Lunch buffet at $21.80++ per adult, $11++ per child; and for dinner, from $23.80++ per adult and $12++ per child.

Over at Furama Riverfront Singapore, Kintamani Indonesian Restaurant – a stalwart since 1985 – is a simple, unpretentious restaurant that serves what they call ‘authentic Balinese cuisine’. Bali or not, this halal-certified restaurant offers both ‘traditional’ and ‘modern’ renditions of popular Indonesian dishes. Specialities include classics like Rendang Daging Sapi (Beef simmered in Spicy Coconut Milk Gravy) and Sup Buntut (Oxtail Soup) and updated interpretations like Avocado & Prawn Salad and Stir-fried Prawns in Butter Sauce. A must-try is Ayam Kodok Kintamani, boneless chicken, minced and marinated with a medley of spices and deep-fried till golden brown, as well as chilli crab (pix above) and Ikan bakar Kintamani.
