Wong Solo is one of my favorite Indonesian restaurants in Klang Valley and you could find their outlets in major townships easily. For those who eat Indonesian food on a regular basis you will find their menu nothing surprising and comprises many common and traditional Indonesian dishes. I have tried their Penyet stuff before which is not bad but Wong Solo is also famous for their signature Ayam/Ikan Bakar.
They use ‘ayam kampung’ for their Ayam Bakar and it tastes very close to the normal barbecued chicken but a lot better – more tender and the taste leans towards sweetness because of the dark soya sauce marinade. Although I liked the Ayam Bakar, I am not too happy with the portioning. For RM6.90 at a normal establishment like this, I would have expected a larger portion. Seriously this is not even enough for 1 pax to go with rice.
Anyway, two condiments are readily available on each table – one thick, spicy and sweet soya sauce while the other (sambal ulek) is extremely spicy. And when I say extreme I really mean it, one small dip packs a big punch.
Ikan Bakar Bawal @ RM19.90 – nice also but the poor fish did not have much flesh to be enjoyed.
Balado Terung @ RM7.50 – basically a simple stir-fried brinjal dish in a hot and chunky chili paste called Sambal Balado.
For cooling off after a spicy meal – Kelapa Muda and Soda Gembira (sirap bandung + soda). Both also RM5.50 and the latter is quite recommended, very gembira-ing indeed.
I don’t mind dining here more often if they revise their serving portion (make it larger, of course!) Otherwise, my future visits here will be kept to an once in a while thing.
