Delicious Ayam Bakar

Please go to http://rollingwrites.blogspot.sg/2012/09/wong-solo-far-east-plaza.html for pictures!

The Ayam Bakar ($6.90) was delightful. The skin wasn't too charred and the marinate was sweet. I liked the fact that the taste of the marinate went through the meat as well. The chicken meat was also easily torn apart. The rice was supposed to be pandan rice although it didn't have a very strong pandan flavour. The chilli was also spicy and appetising.

My only gripe about this place is that they prepared the tomato and cucumbers much earlier than we placed our orders. Plates of cucumbers and tomatoes were just left in the open even though no one had made any orders. Honestly, I would rather wait a few more minutes for my food than eating food that has been left in the open for so long.

Started off well, now food quality going down.

Ambience: A stall in Far East Plaza. Block chairs still not so comfortable, got a bench seat at the back.

Food: Ordered 2 beef ribs. tough and over cooked. also not tasty. Had the tomato juice which had little taste of Tomato. Fortunately the Squid bits were tasty but only a small serving. Highlight was the "tempa" with frieds - tasty and well fried and the Gado Gado had a good sauce..

Value: Not good value, overpriced items.

Service: Order at counter, not so happy waitress brings it over.

Dear Weighty Man,



Thank you for choosing to dine in again at Wong Solo. We apologize that you were not able to enjoy your dining experience this time. We actually upgraded the flooring since your first visit so we were surprised that you did not like the new design and rated it lower than before the renovation. We will take note of your comments to help us improve the quality of our dishes. We hope to have you in our restaurant again.



Sincerely,

Wong Solo Management

It's been about 6 mths since my food tasting session with HGW, this time i returned armed with 2 x Groupon vouchers. The ayam penyet, bakar and Iga bakar are as good as before. Tender, flavorful and really authentic, the chilli's the best, bring back memories of eating home cooked food in Indonesia.

It is typical for people to start eatery and slowly yet workers run the show, but I saw the lady boss clearing plates taking order etc. No wonder the standards are so consistent.

One downside, your hair and clothes will have a bit of the lingering bakar smell.
