One of my last meals in Singapore was fried chicken, Malay-style.
The fried fish cake was nice and chewy.
After I watched the Suicide Squad at Cineleisure Orchard I went down to the basement to have dinner. There is a branch of a chain of Indonesian food restaurants there, Es Teler 77 there.
I was annoyed that they omitted all chilies from my dinner, assuming that all whiteys can’t handle spicy food.
This was spicy! I had some time to kill before I watched the latest Star Trek movie at Cineleisure Orchard. Down in the basement is a decent food court. Well, cheap anyway. But the Indonesian food stall sells good food.
I enjoyed the chicken broth. It helped quench the burning sensation of the sambal.
Star Trek was enjoyable but not especially memorable. Defeating aliens by playing ‘Sabotage’ by the Beastie Boys was ridiculous.
This was the last dinner I ate in Bali, one week ago. This was at Gapet, which was rated number one a week ago on Tripadvisor.
The roasted duck was cooked well as the fat was rendered nicely. The chunky sauce was made of lemongrass, chilies, shallots, lime juice and garlic. There was sambal, a shallot-chili relish and a spicy cabbage side salad.
Not too hungry, I went across the street to this unnamed Balinese restaurant.
I used to think that satay was chunks of skewered meat, grilled on a charcoal flame and served with a peanut sauce. At this place and at Warung Nia, I had seafood mince wrapped around a stalk of lemongrass and then grilled.
The presentation was very nice, the skewers bound together with a chili pepper. I liked these skewers and I could have eaten more.
Oddly, the shrimp and vegetables of the shrimp gazpacho were served separately. Regardless, it was delicious. I can’t remember the last time I had gazpacho. I liked the smoky flavor of the roasted tomatoes.
Right across the street from the Destiny Hotel is this Balinese restaurant serving pork and other meats.
The sauce was mildly spicy and I could taste lemon grass and lime leaves. It was tasty.
