The Uleg

Among the emerging eateries providing Indonesian cuisine, there are restaurants that I previously thought were not using anything halal. According to the owner’s statement, she always uses halal meat. Additionally, there is no pork on the menu.

Today I came specifically for a famous Indonesian dish involving beef ribs that’s very tasty (‘iga balado’ or ribs cooked in a special sambal or chilli). I love this dish. My daughter chose the ‘ikan pepes’ (fish steamed in banana leaves) which was apparently a little spicy for her. But it was suitable for my very Indonesian palette. As entrees we choose ‘tempeh’ (soybean cake) and tofu ‘mendoan’ (fried in a tasty batter) as well as ‘es cendol’ – a sweet Indonesian drink with green rice flour jelly, coconut milk and palm sugar syrup which my daughter ended up finishing to help her cope with the fiery taste of the food.

If you want to eat Indonesian food with genuine Indonesian flavours here is the place. This restaurant is on the list of restaurants that I will go back to (in addition to looking for other halal restaurants of course). Very good service & food presentation – keeping up these two important things, well done to The Uleg.

Ditengah bermunculan restaurant yang menyediakan masakan Indonesia, ada restaurant yang sebelumnya aku fikir tidak menggunakan apa-apa yang halal. Menurut keterangan pemiliknya, dia selalu menyediakan apa-apa yang halal. Tambahan orang terdekatku mengkonfirmasikannya juga dan tidak ada daging babi di menunya.

Hari ini aku datang memesan iga masak balado yang sangat lezat, aku suka sekali. Anak perempuanku memilih ikan pepes yang rupanya sedikit pedas untuknya. Tapi buatku itu memang cocok untuk lidah indonesia. Sebagai pemula kita pilih tempeh dan tahu mendoan, serta cendol untuk minumanku yang akhirnya dihabiskan anakku untuk menghilangkan rasa pedas!

Kalau hendak makan-makanan Indonesia dengan rasa indonesia disini lah tempatnya. Restaurant ini masuk daftar restaurant yang akan aku datangi kembali disamping mencari restaurant2 halal lainnya . Untuk presentasi makanan dan pelayanan bagus dan teruslah pertahankan kedua hal yang penting ini.
