Tahu Telor Gurame
Review (3)
Gurame Indonesian Restaurant ('Gurame') is located in Changi Coast Park, or to be exact it is located in NSRCC Sea Sport Centre. The location is quite secluded and can be difficult to reach without your own set of wheels. Once you are there, you will be rewarded with the clear view of Changi Beach, if you don't mind the tankers or carriers cruising by or the noise of planes landing and taking off.Gurame has indoor and outdoor seating. I suggest that you seat indoor in the afternoon and outdoor in the evening. As there was some team building activities on that day, all the indoor seating was taken.We were in a group of 9 and we were so hungry so we decided to order quite a few dishes. For appetizer, we were served emping (belinjo crackers) with sambal.First batch of the food served was Udang Bakar ($30), Tauge Ikan Asin ($8) and Sambal Terong ($8). The Udang Bakar or Grilled Prawns are fresh. For $30, you get ten big size prawns, butterfly and grilled with sweet sauce. It was grilled perfectly, in low fire and sealed the juiciness of the prawn inside.Tauge Ikan Asin is fried bean sprout with salted fish. The bean sprout was crunchy, but the salted fish seems to have escape and difficult to find. Sambal Terong or Fried EggPlant with Sweet Chilli Sauce looks good, but since me and LD are not eggplants lover we did not touch it. Those who ate it says it was good.Next come Ayam Bakar ($10), Sop Buntut ($8) and Gulai Kepala Ikan ($30). Ayam Bakar is Grilled Chicken with Special Sauce. The chicken is tender for the thigh and drumstick, however it is dry for the breast meat. It is well seasoned and goes well with the sweet sambal. Sop Buntut or Ox Tail Soup has a clear yet robust broth. The meat is tender and fall of the bone.Gulai Kepala Ikan is Gurame version of Curry Fish Head. Served on a claypot, the curry has a thick creamy texture, with average spicy level. The curry tasted a bit sweet and tangy, like the normal gulai in Indonesia. Fish head was fresh.Tahu Telor ($8), Soto Ayam ($7), Cumi Goreng Tepung ($18) and Rendang Sapi ($12) are the last dishes to be served. The Tahu Telor here is slightly different from other Indonesian restaurant version. Looks like giant egg are made from diced beancurd, not the silken tofu. The texture is more rough and harder while we prefer the smooth velvety texture for our beancurd. Soto Ayam is good and robust with the coconut milk add to the richness of the dish, which is different from the Malay version here.Cumi Goreng Tepung / fried battered squid rights, we find that you can't go wrong if you order this dish anywhere in Indonesia or Malaysia. They sure know to handle their squid, it was just crispy, tasty and a little springy.The best dish and the die die must order when you are at Gurame is the Rendang Sapi or Beef Rendang. It is so tasty, tender and the beef just melts in your mouth. The meat absorbs the gravy and the portion is very good.In case you are wondering, we did not order the Fried Gurame (Talipa) because the supplier has not show up to deliver the fish when we place our order. So next time then.For desserts, I do not recommend their Es Alpokat ($8) – Avocado Juice / Smoothie. They do not served the authentic Indonesian version, using chocolate condensed milk, instead they use brown sugar and it is extremely sweet.The service is friendly but it can be difficult to get their attention at times as they are overwhelm with the other customers in the indoor seating. Overall, the food are delicious and the price of the food is value for money. We look forward to go back to try their fried Gurame.

Overall, food at Garame Indonesian restaurant was of an acceptable standard. At least, the glutton family truly enjoyed the simple meal and appreciated the tranquility of the ambiance surrounded us. Most importantly, we are blessed for every moment with the company of each other in this peaceful atmosphere, no one missed out and perhaps this was the most wonderful part of the meal.Food was generally good, the Tahu Telor was a house specialty, the tahu was cut in cube shape which was different from the traditional Tahu Telor of mashed tofu coated with deep fried eggs. The taste was reasonably good with the sauce.Ayam Bakar (Grilled chicken) was grilled and doused with spices mixture consists of chili, tamarind, garlic and others. A simple dish with a relatively simple taste.Ikan Pepes was a high end version of fish otah wrapped in pandan leaves and steamed to perfection. The fish was fresh and tender, but the otah paste was nothing too exciting to talk about. The herbs in the paste were quite distinct but blended well with the fish.For full review and more photos, please visit http://ieatandeat.com/gurame-indonesian-restaurant continue reading

It has been long time since I eat such good food. The fish is so crispy that I can even eat the bone. This is a common dish that Indonesian Restaurants will serve and this is also the best that I have ever eaten in Singapore. We have also ordered another popular Indonesian dish, Tahu Telor. The beancurd is not as oily and just right. Tahu Kipas was something that I have not tried out in other restuarant, but this was also another thumbs up dish. I only remember to take the picture for the fish as this was the last dish that it was served. The moment the first 4 dishes were served, it was gone before I knew it. I also tried the mixed curry vegetables and grilled squid. I will definitely go back to try out more dishes. YUMMY! continue reading
