Pempek Blok 3

Special Thanks to the local friends who brought us here. We would not have tried any traditional Indonesian Cuisine if not for their hospitality. Although there are a few chains, this place was recommended for its environment, not too crowded as compared to the ones in the malls.

Blending into the Indonesian Culture, we have their popular Avocado Chocolate Milk. Unlike from Singapore, their version was thicker and taste alot different.

The weather is hot and one of us had ordered Chendol. It tasted more towards the coconut milk side though.

Pempek is a Southeast Asian Fishcake delicacy. It is made up of fish and Tapioca. Often served with rich sweet sour sauce named Kuah Cuka or Kuah Cuko. Topped with slices of cucumbers and meat floss, the Fishcake Omelette can be served as a good dish to served among friends.

The dish reminds me of Singapore's version "Indian Rojak" which "Rojak" also literally means "Campur. The difference is that items were made with real mackerel fish, they have egg wrapped with Pempek and this entire Savoury Fishcake Delicacy is from Palembang.

Indonesia's style of Gado Gado, a kind of Vegetable Salad with peanut sauce coupled with some crackers. A dish that I will always order while in Indonesia.

The Traditional Yellow Rice with Fried Spring Chicken was served in a basket decked with grease paper and banana leaf. Ayam was nicely fried and chilli was powerful, giving a good spicy kick. Crackers and diced Tahu come together in the meal.

Grilled rice, the traditional way of preparing rice wrapped in leaf. At least it ensure diners that the rice is still kept warm until we releases the heat by opening the packet.
Nasi Timbel Bakar Ayam (Empal) (Traditional Fried Chicken / Beef Set with Grilled Rice)
It can be ordered with chicken or beef set. Its a simple and straight forward meal that comes with a bowl of vegetable soup.

While one of the hosts enjoyed his lunch with a bowl of Mie Ayam aka chicken noodle and it comes with a bowl of soup filled with leafy greens.

This place should be easily accessible if you order a Taxi or Grab Car in Batam.
