With the emergence of food delivery in Singapore like Foodpanda and Deliveroo, it allows people to enjoy ambrosial food without travelling outside their homes.
It was a lazy weekend and we had Bali Thai for lunch via the food delivery.
Bali Thai offers a perfect combination of both Thai and Indonesian cuisines where diners enjoy the best of both worlds from Thailand and Indonesia.
The Tahu Telur or Fried Beancurd with Egg was a great starter before the main course. The original version from Jawa Timur, Indonesia was flat like an omelette or a shape of a pancake. The Singapore version has a shape like a cylinder and top with finely shredded cucumber and carrots with a good drizzle of peanut sauce. The beaten eggs were fragrant and beautifully fried with the beancurd cubes into golden brown colour. The peanut sauce with the egg mixture was absolutely delicious. (Food rating: 4.5/5)
Satay Madura (BBQ chicken) were identical to Singapore's local satay. The marinade was sweet with a nice lemongrass fragrance. The chicken satay or bbq chicken were grilled and the dipped with crunchy peanut sauce. Identical to the local Satay, Satay Madura was equally delicious. (Food rating: 4.5/5)
Pineapple Rice with Fish Fillet was an interesting combination. The Pineapple rice was fragrant and the texture was perfect. However, I would not think the fish fillet complement the pineapple rice. Though the fish was freshly prepared, the deep fried fish fillets did not taste good with the pineapple rice. I felt that both items were vying for attention. (Food rating: 3/5)
Best of the four items was the Beef Rendang with rice set. The beef rendang was a spicy beef stew that supposed cooked for long hours. The beef cubes would be very tender and disintegrate easier. However, the beef cubes in the rendang was a little tough. Came in huge cubes, the meat could be in bite size and more tender. The gravy, on the other hand, was perfect. I would order this set again.
