When I think about Indonesian food, I right away think about family members, dinner in the house, the heat of being together with your liked ones. It is of little wonder then that the exact same family warmth is what makes Tok Indonesian Restaurant– a household eating concept showcasing much-loved Indonesian favourites.
Nestled in the cultural territory of Katong, the style of the dining establishment is simple with low-key colours. The interior is not loud however inviting. My eating friend remarked that the dining establishment advises her of residence, which could simply be just how Tok desires their restaurants to really feel when they eat at the restaurant.
Simple and also underrated the decor might be, the food at Tok absolutely is not. I had not been prepared for the explosion of flavours that I would taste– in a great way, obviously. With Tok Tok’s household eating idea, you would not intend to miss its variety of main dishes that can complement their trademark Nasi Uduk (S$ 2.80), which is definitely aromatic as the rice has been cooked in Santan coconut milk with an added Indonesian spin.
The first dish that impressed me was the Ketoprak (S$ 12.80), a recipe with vermicelli noodles as well as vegetables, rubbed with penalty, roasted peanut sauce. I was pleasantly stunned the noodles and also the peanut sauce enhance each various other, connected much to the tasty sauce. Suffice to say, the sauce was the star of this recipe.

I was astonished by just how good the smoked oxtail tasted. Covered with kecap peanut(Indonesian sweet soya sauce) as well as barbequed for extra smokey char and also caramelisation. The beef is so tender it melts in your mouth.

The beverages at Tok have various characters with their own distinct flavour. To start, we have Tebet(S$ 7.80), a crossbreed of spiced lemongrass and tamarind paste with muddled lime and mango juice. I might inform simply from smelling that this beverage would assault my palate– and also it did. It has a mix of sweet yet hot flavours, which would leave your taste either despising it or caring it.
If you are not so daring when it pertains to beverages, a much safer wager would be Canggu (S$ 7.80) and also Kemang (S$ 7.80). Canggu is freshening with a blend of pineapple juice, jumbled lime as well as soda water. With cut ice on the top, it is one beverage to definitely freshen up your palate. Kemang, on the various other hand, includes jumbled calamansi and also kiwi combined with soda and infused with a touch of mint leaf. With its lively as well as sour dash, Kemang is one drink that would certainly wake you up immediately.
After checking out that lots of meals, my belly required a break yet as the adage goes, there’s always space for treats. The cook at Tok stated exactly how Roti Bakar (S$ 8.80), Es Teler (S$ 5.80) and Pisang Goreng (S$ 5.80) are all famous Indonesian road food. These food might not be one of the most aesthetically pleasing but just exactly how good it would certainly taste.
Es Teler as well as Roti Bakar really did not disappoint me. I such as just how genuine it looked with the large amount of cheddar cheese on the Roti Bakar. The salute and also delicious chocolate condensed milk treat topped with shaved cheddar cheese was humbly wonderful. For Pisang Goreng, the fried banana fritters could be far better if the helpings of the cheese as well as delicious chocolate were much more charitable. To finish my lunch, I had the Es Teler, an Indonesian fruit cocktail served with coconut milk as well as sweetened condensed milk. Not as well cloyingly sweet yet rejuvenating. I sense this cocktail would certainly be a hit with both the young and the old.

In general, my outing at Tok was a pleasant event. I finished my lunch on a happy note. With Tok Tok’s family members eating concept, this is one ideal place to appreciate authentic Indonesian food with your loved ones.
