Bayang – Eat, Prey & Love Balinese Cuisine

By Daniel, October 13, 2011

Bayang, which means ‘shadow’ to symbolise the Wayang kilit puppets in Indonesia, offers many traditional Balinese fare at a purplish-toned elegant setting. Some of the signature offerings on the menu include Bebek Betutu (Baked Duck with Balinese spice in Banana Leaf), Satay Campur (marinated minced fish or meat grilled on lemongrass sticks), and Ikan Bakar Bali (Barbeque whole fish basted in special sweet sauce grilled slowly over charcoal).

If you come in a group of three, the Appetizer Platter ($19) should work best for you. It comes with a combination of street food such as sate madura (skewered chicken), spring rolls, grilled prawns, and my favourite begedel potato cakes.

Bayang now offers affordable weekday $15 set lunches which include an appetizer, soup, main course and drink – This is one very tempting offer.

Wong Solo – Indonesia’s famous Ayam Bakar has made its way here

By Daniel, August 29, 2011

Fans of Indonesia’s popular Wong Solo will be thrilled to know that its franchise has found its way here, located at Far East Plaza. Wong Solo has more than 90 stores in Indonesia and 5 in Malaysia. The difference is the brand has a colourful orange-green setting, cutesy chicken logo and fast-food format for the Singapore branch, attempting to appeal to students and young executives.

Many Indonesian eateries are known for their ayam penyet, while Wong Solo is instead established for its ayam bakar. The grilled chicken ($6.90) is well-marinated with special blended Indonesian spices, making the meat sweet and rich-tasting. Served with fried batter bits, black sauce-manis, spicy chili and rice, I am glad that the skin is just slightly charred (spare me from cancer) with the inside remaining soft and moist.

You may be craving for the chewiness of pizzas, spiciness of curries, and the distinctiveness of Tempe at this very moment. And here’s where you can have some Italian, Indian and Indonesian food just so that you can feel a little more in tune with Elizabeth Gilbert.

Ayam Penyet Ria

By Daniel, June 2, 2008

“304 Orchard Road #04-25 Lucky Plaza S(238863) Tel: 62356390

“Ayam Penyet” is really the ‘IN’ thing now. Several eateries, hawker centre stall, and even my school canteen is selling this popular dish. 

Ayam penyet which hails from Indonesia, is a fried chicken dish flattened with a wooden pestle. It is a simple dish which is served with fragrant rice, some vegetables such as cabbage and potent sambal chilli sauce. Some serve the dish with fried tahu (beancurd) and tempe (soybean cake) on the side. 

If you want to try out the original, Ayam Penyet Ria located at the 4th storey of Lucky Plaza is one of the first few places which brought this dish in. Do note that it is often very crowded during the weekends, so expect to wait in line with locals and Indonesians alike.
