We were heading for a movie at Plaza and found this interesting stall in Kopitiam - they even accept Kopitiam card for a 10% discount !
Ambience: It'a a packed food court at lunch, managed to "chop" a table with my tissue packet before ordering food - got it this time. Comfortable, airconditioned and not that noisy.
Food: We ordered a chicken set and a squid and fish set. The chicken set came with rice and chilli, but no vegetables. Veg costs 80cts more. Strange - must as HPB to intervene with their eat more veg drive ! Rice was covered in a coconut - spice saude, rice yellow colour. The chicken was tasty, probably fresh and BBQed to a crisp with their ABC sauce coating it. The squid in the other set was also delicious, crunchy and fresh but the fish pieace was a let down. Prepared using a medium grade Dory from Vientnam, it wasn't tasty. Same sauce as the chicken - probably have a 200liter tank of it at the back.
Value: Great valiue at about $6 each, 2 protein - pay $8.
Service: DIY, not so long queue.
I love the Indonesian-style Bbq chicken they serve here. Always perfectly grilled, succulent and meaty then dunked into flavourful black kecap manis based sauce and put onto the dish next to the rice. Then they'll put a slice of omelette and ask if you want light curry gravy added onto your rice. If you want vegetables (cabbage and carrot stir fry) added, you can pay about $1 for a scoop.
so you can imagine with the chicken (or whatever meat you choose) dunked into black sace plus curry gravy on the rice, the whole pate ends up being rather wet and full of sauces! And I haven't even mentioned their beautiful samba chilli! I love it and usually add about 3 scoops of it onto my plate! So my plate is like a gooey mess of indo bbq!! Hehe... Though on the oily side, the chilli is tasty and has lots of whole ikan bilis in there to add to the taste profile. Pure shiokness!!
Depending on my appetite, I sometimes get chicken leg and deep fried fish fillet rice combo. I like that the fish batter is always crispy even after getting the black sauce treatment! !
if I'm ever at Plaza singapura looking for a place to eat, I'll opt for this indo bbq In the food court ... though I usually avoid food courts! ! There's usually a queue during peak hours so try going at off peak times When the food court is not so crowded!!
