It was love at first sight when Nasi Kuning ($9.90) was presented to us. ❀ What stood out the most has got to be the pyramid of Indonesian fragrance turmeric rice donning a coat of alluring bright yellow. 🀀🀀🀀 So soft & fluffy with a hint of the iconic spice - I’m sure you’ll have more than a mouth! πŸ’―

Served with traditional galangal fried chicken πŸ—, fried vermicelli, sliced omelette 🍳, begedil (fried potato cake πŸ₯”), sweet & spicy fried tempeh, garlic crackers & home-made sambal 🌢, this was such a filling & satisfying meal! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

I’ve always got a bias towards begendil - crispy on the outside while remaining soft & moist inside πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹, well-seasoned to make this a savoury treat. The sambal was just mildly spicy & leaned towards the sweet side so it’s good news for those who can’t handle the heat well. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

It is a meaty affair with Nasi Campur Bali ($9.90), which features Balinese-style beef rendang πŸ„, sambal shredded chicken πŸ“, sliced beef tossed with sambal, sweet & spicy fried tempeh, Balinese stir-fry long beans & beef skewer with basted homemade sambal 🌢. While the beef skewer may be a bit tough, the rest of the meats were pretty tender. Perfect for those who adore strong flavours. ✌🏻

Never mind if you get MESSI with this NASI, I won’t judge you! πŸ˜‰ Time to head down to try!

Come, let’s TOK about the food that TOK TOK Indonesian Soup House @toktoksg at @payalebarsquare offers! πŸ˜‰

I highly recommend their Sop Buntut ($9.50 with rice) ❀❀❀, which is the chef's family recipe. The broth is clear yet robust-tasting, a result of having oxtail simmered for long hours such that the meat is almost fall-off-the-bone tender. 🀀 The generous use of traditional spices also enhances the heartiness of the soup. This certainly had a taste of home. 🏠

Turn up the heat with Soto Betawi ($9.50 w rice) if you’re someone who adores chilli. 🌢🌢🌢 Although the spice level was very mild, it does add a little kick to this Jakarta beef soup. Slowly simmered with aromatic herbs & spices, this milky broth would be delightful to those who has a stronger palate. βœ” Like how the tangy tomatoes πŸ… balances out the sweet milky flavours, also making this bowl with a generous amount of beef chunks less heavy. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»
.
Their Soto Madura ($8.80 w rice) is prepared by boiling the beef broth with mainly lemongrass as its herbs. πŸ‘ŒπŸ» To me, it tasted like Soto Ayam (chicken flavoured) & leaned towards the oily side. Served in the traditional way with just meat & boiled egg, simply enjoy the tender beef chunks πŸ₯© with the piping hot rice.🍚
.
Want some sides to go with your soup? Try the Siomay Bandung ($8), which is essentially mixed steam fish dumpling with homemade peanut sauce πŸ₯œ. Although it felt more like a starchy rice cake or a very dense ketupat to me, I appreciate the bouncy chew & especially liked the aromatic peanut sauce doused over. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ As a nuts lover, the peanut sauce made everything nice! πŸ’―
.
If you’ve had a bad day or have a really sweet tooth, go for their House Sodas for the ultimate sugar rush! 🍬🍭The Markisa Soda (Passionfruit soda, $3) was pretty refreshing. With condensed milk added, their Fanta Soda Gembira & Coke Soda Gembira ($3 each) were too sweet for me πŸ˜‚ - I’d prefer their Teh Botol ($2.70), a classic Indonesian Jasmine Tea drink. πŸ‘πŸ»

Ayam goreng ($8.80)
It serves variety of Indonesian food, from ayam penyet to noodles to snacks. The chicken is so juciy and tender that I can easily tear off the meat using the fork and spoon. The portion is big enough for a girl and just nice for guy.
