My craving for Indonesian Mee Goreng led me to try out IndoChili Indonesian Restaurant but I ended up ordering their Mixed Seafood Combo comprised of grilled black pomfret, squids, prawns, satay and chicken. This platter is filling enough for 2 pax paired with rice.
Beside their rather rustic decor – filled with rattan chairs and bamboo baskets, the food was of certain quality. For grilled items, the use of fresh ingredients would be essential. Other than that the key ingredient that makes the grilled food “Indonesian” is probably the sticky kecap manis (sweet soy sauce). The black pomfret seemed to be fried rather than grilled since it has a crispy texture. The prawns were so fresh that the shells came off easily.
Although one might find the price-level to be higher than what we would be prepared to pay when compared to eating them while holidaying in Indonesia. This place is a rare find as the only other Indonesian restaurant in Singapore which I had fond memories of is Tembuah Mas.
