IR1968 @ Terrace Hock Choon


IR1968 offers classic Indonesian recipes in a comfortably elegant setting.


Gado-gado, a traditional salad of bean curd, bean sprouts, cabbage, cucumber, lettuce, potatoes, eggs & prawn crackers with a thick, nectarous peanut sauce. Awesomely addictive.


Perkedel Jagung (shrimp corn cake). Light, fluffy and not oily at all, with a natural, subtle sweetness derived from both the shrimp and the corn.


Three varieties of satay: chicken, beef & mutton. Wonderfully tender and well-marinated.


Semur lidah. Succulent ox tongue, with a meatiness reminiscent of Wagyu beef cheeks.


Perhaps the only Indonesian restaurant in KL that serves wine.




IR1968,
Terrace @ Hock Choon,
Lorong Nibong, Off Jalan Ampang.

  12. Looks lovely! But i've always had a dilemma about spending alot of money on Malay or Indo food. But things looks good here though. BFF, bling me!

  13. qwazymonkey: oh yeah, it's definitely possible to get equally good malay/indonesian food elsewhere at lower prices. but i guess this is a nicer place to linger for a few hours during lunch or dinner =)
