Waroeng Kampoeng [Closed]

nasi liwet @ waroeng kampoeng

Dear fellow tasters,

It was lunch date with two lady friends at Citywalk Sudirman.  We initially planned for Nanny’s Pavillon but the waiting list was crazy, so we looked for a different place and ended up at an Indonesian food restaurant called Waroeng Kampoeng which was looking a bit crowded as well.  Waroeng means food stall and Kampoeng means village/rural and their menu selection was traditional Indonesian with a great Javanese influence.  I decided to order the nasi liwet while my friends chose the sour spicy fish soup and nasi rawon.

The nasi liwet was a rice dish served with shreds of chicken, labu siam (chili chayote), brown tofu, half an egg, spicy krecek (from beef rind), and some prawn crackers.  It tasted quite decent.  I did try a little bit of the fish soup but it tasted a bit fishy probably because the fish is no longer fresh.  The rawon was a traditional Javanese beef dish with dark brown soup made from different herbs and spices.  I had a taste of the rawon base and it was also pretty standard.  I think we definitely can find many Indonesian restaurant which offers similar menu but with greater taste.
