IR1968 @ Terrace Hock Choon, Ampang

Click here for earlier entry on IR1968 (March 2, 2010).

Sop Santan Ayam (pumpkin & coconut broth with chicken). Comfort food for the soul; something like this is always a pleasure, whether it's a Western-style chicken soup or thoroughly Asian like this one, laced with unrecognisable Indonesian spices.

Kari tetelan (beef brisket curry). A thick, hearty concoction, with lots of tender meat. Probably not fiery enough to please chilli-lovers though.

Nasi kuning campur, with beef rendang & fried chicken. A well-prepared platter; the simple things were what we savoured the most, like the creamy hard-boiled egg yolk.

Tauhu goreng telur. Crunchy carrots & bean sprouts heaped over a fairly fluffy combo of fried beancurd & egg, with a sweet-&-salty coconut gravy.

House red wine.

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

  4. arrgh i wanna go!!! but no one wanna take me there!!!

  5. eiling: yeah, there seem to be not many fans of indonesian cuisine around. it's not my favorite food either, though it's a nice change sometimes from western cuisine =)

  6. My friend's pestering me to go here. Looks like I'll be visiting soon. I presume it's still quite empty, eh?

  7. lemongrass: the lunch crowd might be bigger (maybe), though i think this place looks best at night :D

  8. Ahh..frm the first to comment at 12am to the last. Heh, as u can see i been sleeping early nowadays. Yup, exhausted. I jz had Indonesian yest! Bumbu desa at The Curve. Yup, Indons love their beef, but the one there ws hopelessly chewy and tough!
