I accompanied sis for some urgent shopping at Far East Plaza. When we reached there, we were so hungry and had to eat before we could shop. We walked around and saw Resto Surabaya. What prompted us to go in was the Sunday Times cutting on the glass wall. It was Posh Nosh recommendation of cheap eats.
We ordered the Ayam Bakar. $6
Portions initially looked small, but it was actually enough for the two of us to share. It was really fragrant and the sauce is really Indonesian style sweet. (if you want to put it nicely, very well caramelized sauce LOL) We really like it!
We also had the Ayam Penyet. $6.
I think the marinate is gingery which is something we like. For once, we had Ayam Penyet that is really ‘bashed’ till the meat separates from the bones. Yums! The chilli that came with it was had freshly pounded tomatoes.
The rice is 60 cents a serving.
We wanted a ‘vegetable dish’. The recommendation was deep fried brinjals, but sis said, ‘something non fried please’. So the service staff said, try gado gado, ‘not deep fried’.
This is the Gado Gado $5. Keropokman do not like the keropok on it! “Lao Hong liao!”
But overall it’s edible. The sauce is not as thick but it has an unique taste though. A bit sweet as well.
For the drinks, I decided to try the ‘Juice Sehat’. $3
If you translate it, it means ‘healthy juice’. I wanted to find out what it is, so I ordered it! It’s apple juice!
This shop is a branch of the main one at Far East Shopping Centre.
Now I know why people keep saying I should try the one at Far East Shopping Centre for Ayam Penyet. (Sis and I think the Ayam Bakar is nicer though)
