After a super long hiatus, I’m back with another food review for you foodies!
This time I’m bringing you Indonesian-food-lovers some “Indolicious Homestyle Food You’ll Love”- that’s right! It’s IndoBowl Resto which is located at IOI City Mall, Putrajaya. Operated since early April this year, it aims to serve their customers with the most authentic Indonesian homestyle food.
This month, they are introducing a brand new (& tasty, too!) menu so of course, Azim and I had to hop in the car and make our way to the restaurant.
For those who can tolerate spicy food, one drink is enough but for those who can not- make sure you order extra drinks on the side. After all that sambal balado, you might going to need it. Anyway, we tried three of their signature drinks; Soda Gembira which definitely brought back our childhood memories and best-loved, Soda Jagung and Es Cendol.
Indomie Ayam Telur Asin (Indomie Salted Egg Chicken) was easily my favorite. The Indomie noodle alone is infamously tasty but add together with some fried cubed-chicken covered with salted egg, a sunny side up and their signature sambal balado– it’s finger licking!
We also tried a dish from their Nasi Campur Series- Nasi Campur Sotong Masam Manis. Contrary from the previous dish, this dish emphasizes on the sweet and sour flavor. Squids were firm and chewy as it should be and it also comes with Sate Ayam (chicken skewers). Characters are not as strong as the previous dish so I’d recommend this dish for those who have low tolerance to spicy food. So if everyone were to visit- not to worry as there is something for everyone here.
Also, we tried the latest addition in the menu which is Bakso Goreng Balado. For those who are not familiar with Indonesian cuisine, Bakso is an insanely popular meatball in Indonesia. The meatballs are cooked and smothered in their signature sambal balado. I love my food fiery so I threw in these bakso into the Nasi Campur Sotong Masam Manis to give it a bit of a kick!
Their Sate Ayam (chicken skewers) is said to be one of their best-sellers and I understood why once I have tasted it. The chicken meat were generously marinated resulting to a tender and flavorful meat. They are served with sweet soy sauce to complement the chicken skewers.
To end, we had another one of its latest addition in the menu which is Bakwan Jagung (Indonesian corn fritters). As simple as it is, it has all the elements it needed; crunchy and crispy texture, smells and tastes delicious. Just a bit of a PSA- if you ordered this for appertizer or starter, you will overeat.
All and all, it was a pleasant experience especially for Indomie lovers like me. Go ahead and give it a try!
