印尼餐廳1968連續3年登上米芝蓮推介,這夜趁加班後來食個輕量晚餐。裝潢很工業及懷舊風情,燈光也頗昏暗,在這週日的晚上,人不太多,只點了三道菜,都是簡單的招牌菜,應能見功架。

Indonesian Restaurant 1968 has been on Michelin recommendation list for 3 years. Finally got a chance to have a light dinner during weekday. Decoration was quite classy and vintage with dim light. It was not so crowded on this weekday. We ordered 3 courses and most were simple signature dishes which would let us see the skills of chef.

Strawberry Soda

先來一杯士多啤梨梳打,為何不點珍多冰?看到鄰座的珍多冰,份量很大,也十分足料,今次想留肚食,便手下留情,幸而梳打很清新,又多果肉,非常醒胃,總算達到目的。

First we ordered a strawberry soda, why not cendol (flour bean curd with coconut milk)? I had seen the one at next table but its portion was quite big with lots of ingredients. We wanted to focus on the food rather than the drink, so soda would be a better choice. Luckily it was so refreshing with lots of strawberry inside. Tasted quite good.

前菜,炸軟殻蟹紙米卷,賣相出眾,蟹箝也走出來了。不沾醬食得是鮮味,青菜的新鮮配上蟹的肉味,不錯的。沾沙律醬,從微酸的沙律醬又帶出了紙米卷的甜味,兩種不同選擇。

For starter, we ordered the soft shell crab rice rolls. Very impressive presentation while the claws was so big that hung at the edge of the rice rolls. Enjoying it without the salad sauce gave you experience of true flavour of the freshness of vegetables and crab meat. The sweetness of the ingredients would be brought even more with the salad sauce.

雜錦黃薑飯,印尼菜必食之選,非常豐富。除了三款不同的咖哩外,還有一只燒雞脾,份量十足。個人較喜歡紅咖哩,有著蝦仁,較香口之餘,又食到蝦的甜味。黃薑飯保持乾身,食後甚暖胃。

Assorted turmeric rice was something you wouldn’t miss while having Indonesian cuisine. It was quite a big portion as there was roasted chicken leg and 3 different types of curry. Personally I prefer the red curry with shrimp as it’s quite spicy while the sweetness of the shrimp was not covered. The turmeric rice was quite dry and gave you warmth after eating.

蒜蓉炒通菜 Stir-fry water spinach with garlic

最後來一道簡單的蒜蓉炒通菜,不油而保持菜身爽嫩,簡單見真章。

Lastly the most simple stir-fry water spinach with garlic. It was not oily at all and was fresh and crispy. So simple but so tasty.
屬於中上價位的印尼菜,但值得一試,希望下次來可以一試沙爹串燒。

will return next time and try the satay.
