Pondok Laguna, Jakarta… the tahu kipas and gurame goreng is as good as it gets!

Super homey and authentic Indonesian spot with rich wood panels where you eat accompanied by the pleasant sounds of the flowing fountain and waterfall. I love this place! The food is so good, the portions are generous and the prices are amazing.

 The tahu kipas (seafood friend beancurd) was the texture of a fried potato but had the yummy flavour of seafood. Go ahead, tell me how that’s not awesome! The ikan gurame goreng (fried carp fish) was ridiculously good and offered up a sense of redemption for over eating. It’s not that it all was less than healthy, for me it was more feeling guilty for having crammed so much tasty things into one sitting. Though the cumi-cumi bakar (grilled squid) was a bit light on taste, the Udang pancet lada hitam (grilled black pepper tiger prawn) was amazing too. The chili sauce accompanying everything was spicy, and worked perfectly with the grilled/fried items. Mmmm, damn, I’m getting hungry all over again.

I am seriously saying that the food is as good as it gets! I’ve never been less than 100% satisfied upon each visit. This is the true truth because I say it as it is…
