Unchartered Territory - Review by Henry T | Bandung Indonesian Restaurant

Bandung Indonesian Restaurant


Unchartered Territory 1/3/2008

Being deprived of Indonesian food in Chicago, we decided to venture and try this out. Few of us are from Indonesia and decided to order from the menu to accommodate some of our non-spicy eating friends. We had the Empek Empek (one of the varieties of fish cakes) in vinegar soy broth and sliced cucumbers. It tends to run a little on the starchy side but retains some of the fish flavors. Martabak Telur (Indonesian Egg rolls) were delicious, crisp on the outside with soft filling of meat and vege. Their Otak-Otak was equally delicious with their peanuts with candle nuts and chilli dipping sauce. Rich and savory. Some of their entrées were equally delicious. We had their special at that time which is the Daging Bakar (grilled beef with sweet molasses sauce) which was a hit with the people who were unfamiliar with the cuisine. However we had few disappointing main dishes which was the Opor Ayam which was shredded chicken, bland and tasteless. The rendang could use a little more heat. It's a good introductory meal of Indonesian cuisine to the unfamiliar. I will definitely go back again for quick Indonesian fix. more
