Pagi Sore

A wonderful suggestion from my pal to have some Indonesian cuisine next to Telok Ayer Street. From words of mouth, Pagi Sore is noted for its ala carte styled restaurant with fusion of chinese cooking style and authentic Indonesian flavours.


Pagi Sore
Dining Environment is big with classic Indonesian style furnishing in majority wood theme color.

Environment
Dining in a group of 4 we were advised by the staff on duty to take up their package for 4. Set meal consists of starters, seafood, meat, vegetables, dessert and beverages.

These starters are the classics of what an Indonesian Restaurant served! They were placed on every reserved tables contained in a wood woven little basket with dolly paper at its base absorbing the oil. Sambal Belacan chilli was all wonder complemented well with cripsy crackers and wasnt too spicy on my tongue. :)

Rendang Sapi (Beef Rendang) was tender and burst full of flavours with every piece of it coated consisently with its sauce.

Shortly after our orders, default drinks, lime juice, for the table of 4 was served. It was rather sour cup of drink but was good as it aids in washing down the spiciness from those authentic Indonesian flavoured dishes.

When it comes to set meal, free flow of rice is offered. They were presentable, each wrapped to triangular shape in banana leaves, freshed cut and steamed together to infuse the fragrance.

The stir-fried kangkong with spicy shrimp paste gave a good crunch. However the amount of chilli paste was not consistent and was too bland from our ideal dish.

Fresh leather jacket fish was steamed to perfection that you can feel its fine and tenderness flesh coated under the savoury rich and smooth Otah-based gravy. The level of spiciness is indicated by 1 chilli on its menu which depicts the minimum spicy level. This is the must have signature dish!

Ikan Otah Kukus

Lovely deep fried bean curd with egg was the scene stealer. A tower packed full of tofu and eggs, it was make perfect by its accompanied sweet black sauce. A simple cut into them broke these wobbly egg tofu apart, revealing its hot steaming interior. Looking at the egg nests and the steam emitting, I did really drools over them!

Tahu Telor

Bali style barbequed chicken was tantalizing! Its charred color on its skin with a sweet tasting smoky goodness, yet packing with juiciness from its boneless thighs. Yums!


Ayam Bali

Indonesian Styled Curry Chicken is indeed different from the chinese style. Curry was mild with its unique style added with potato and chicken chunks. Though curry may looks orange, it was not that spicy.

Ayam Gulai
Had the fresh blended avocado topped with shaved ice with a little spat of gula melaka sweetening the taste. My meal ended well with desserts soothing the heat soring stomach.

Alpukat Gula Melaka


Other than the Avocado dessert, one may also get to choose chendol too. Just like the Alpukat, its soothing to the body system washing down the spicy dishes.

Bali Sore is definitely a good place to gather if you are craving for some spicy Indonesian food to heat your stomach up. However the location maybe a little bit difficult to reach if you are coming from Raffles Place MRT Station due to many constructions sheltered ways had been built and are rather misleading. Another pet peeve we had was its narrow dining space though the restaurant was big to spread out the number of tables from the consumers, they had clustered all tables in just one area which makes walking along the aisles difficult.

Service may be a little abrupt and slight disappointing at times but overall, Pagi Sore still score slightly above than the average.
