|Chilling at Jumeirah Lake TOWERS|
Another day. Thinking of dinner again. We have been eating out quite often or ordering take aways. Cooking at home will be too time consuming. Also causing our apartment to stink of food and lots of cleaning needed to be done.
Getting bored of having our dinner at Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates, the only malls that are decent and convenient to go from our location. We decided to hunt for some asian food, something Indonesian, so we headed to Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT). There is one good Indonesian Restaurant there called Betawi.
Finally arriving at Betawi entrance, yumm, time for a taste of Indonesia. The entrance was quite stylish. A small restaurant but lots to offer.
Loved the ambiance and the interior decoration. The interior was very simple but quite interesting. Service was pretty quick too. What i enjoyed here was the authentic food. It felt like having a meal at a local restaurant in Malaysia or Indonesia. As most asian restaurant here have slightly altered their recipe to better suit expat taste buds or due to ingredients availability in a foreign country.
We started of with the Cendol. It was quite sweet but nice. Quite strong in coconut milk flavour. A little more ice will be perfect.
|Mie Goreng (AED32.00)|
Main Course. Ahhhh... Mie Goreng! As always, Always Sedap!. Stir fried egg noodles in sweet soya mixed with chicken, egg, vegetables and served with crackers. Was really good, but only for us asians, needed to get used with the price. As we usually have a very delicious plate of Mie Goreng easily below AED10.00.
|Pecel Ayam Special (AED35.00)|
The Pecel Ayam Special. Grilled chicken with fried tofu, sayur asem soup, orek tempe and sambal terasi in a bamboo basket. This was delicious. But very spicy, the soup and sambal. Will suit people that loves spicy food. Chicken too small!
I love this one. Karedok. Fresh vegetables with delicious peanut sauce. It tasted like our chinese "lou sang". Love it.
Location : Betawi, Cluster D, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Dubai
Rating : 3.8/5.0
Critics : The chickens is too small. Vegetables not too fresh. Crackers? Come on, needs to be crispy!
Will i be back? Yes! For more asian food.
