IR 1968 Food Review

IR 1968
Indochine Restaurant & Bar
When was the last time I had my Indonesian's food? Is it when my maid cook? Nah! It would be during my last Bali trip 1,2,3 @ February.
But now I have a chance to dine in at a Indonesian cuisine restaurant.
First of all let me introduce the owner of the restaurant
Ms.Debbie Goh
she is very friendly and a cheerful person,
you can see her smiling & laughing while chatting with us!
she is a winner of 1998 Miss Malaysia Chinese International Pageant and she has also made appearances in various movies such as the famous Summer Holiday - "Ha Yat Dik Mo Mo Cha" and her latest appearance will be at Age Of Glory 2 - 情牵南洋
(you can check it out @ NTV7 -Monday to Thursday: 10pm-11pm)

and her partner Mr.Hudson Chang
basically he will be the one explaining the ingredients of the food and how they came up with the food's name. He explained the history of the restaurant, culture, & family.

What is IR?
IR stands for Indonesian Restaurant
Why IndoChine?
it is basically stands for Indonesian mix with Chinese, therefore this restaurant serve Indonesian food mix with Chinese style.
History about Hudson's grandfather, who is actually from Surabaya owned a Indonesian restaurant there at about year 1936. And his dad, went to Hong Kong and owned a Indonesian restaurant there.

Now lets start off with the Drinks
Sour Plum Juice (RM12)
suitable for those who does not have appetite to eat,
you can drink this to enhance your taste bud.
The sour taste is still tolerable.

Mango Kiwi
made from fresh Mango & Kiwi that creates a perfect combo to refresh us.
If you think that you the sour plum is too sour, you must try this, it is a Sweet&Sour combo.

Fresh Peach Tea (RM12)
made from fresh Peach and added with tea, it is more like a light drink,
perfect for the elders.

Ice LemonGrass Ginger Tea
saw the ginger in the tea? I personally dislike lemon grass but this drink is really refreshing.

The FOODs is up next
SOUPS category
we have #1 SOP BUNTUT
Indonesian OX Tail soup (RM12 per pax)
it is actually almost the same like the Malaysia Soup Ekor,
and BUNTUT in Indonesian means butt. In cantonese we call it "Sifat"soup.
This is special recommended by Hudson (the partner), as it really have strong taste of the tomato and also the aroma of OX tail. Many of the Malaysian love to drink this.

Chinese double boiled Shark's bone soup (RM20 per pax)
-this is more like Chinese style soup, boiled with Shark's bone soup for few hours, as you can see the pictures above, it is serve with Shark's fin.

Chinese double boiled Prawn soup with wanton (RM15 per pax)
-this is also the Chinese style soup, boiled with Prawn's shell, and the soup is fill with prawn's taste, and therefore wanton is added as toppings for the soup.

STARTERS category
#1 Gado Gado
Indonesian salad (RM18)
-Recommended in the menu. Indonesian salad with bean curd, bean sprout, cabbage, cucumber, lettuce, potato, egg, prawn cracker with their very own made peanut sauce. The peanut sauce taste awesome like the one you eat at Melaka- Satay celup sauce.

#2 Perkedel Jagung
Indonesian shrimp corn cake (RM15)
-this is what my maid always fried it for me to eat.
You have to eat this while it is hot.

VEGETABLE category
Tahu Goreng Telur
Fried Taufu with Egg (RM18)
-Fried bean-curd and egg with peanut sauce! It is almost the same with Gado-Gado.
Hudson mention that this is one of his favorite dish.

-Fresh squid with yellow ginger (Kunyit), salt and pepper.
The ginger mix well with the squid, giving you a better taste.

MEAT category
Semur Lidah
Grill Ox Tongue (RM32)
-Special recommended by Hudson!
It is very tender when I first bite it compare to the normal Ox meat. I get a shocked of my life when someone told me that is it actually Ox Tongue! It doesn't have any weird smell just normal like how u eat the Ox meat. Trust me! I give it a 5 out of 5 star for this!

main theme color is RED! the design is modern

most of their tables and chairs are made from wood.
a little funky old style
