Restro Uwong Palembang @ Elit Avenue, Bayan Baru, Penang.

Step in this restaurant and you know you are in an Indonesian restaurant... the unique Indonesian Batik-styled table cloth and wallpapers tell you everything. The menu features an array of basic, traditional Indonesian cooking, including Gado Gado and Lontong but beyond the classic dishes, Restro Uwong Palembang churns out a signature Palembang delicacy.... Pempek, a type of Indonesian savory Fishcake (something like Keropok Lekor). While Indonesian dishes are rather off-the-beaten track, this place offers authentic Indonesian food manned by local Indonesians; one of the few places that you get to enjoy South Sumatra delicacies and dining in comfortable atmosphere without putting a dent on the wallet. 

Set Single- Pempek (Rm 21.80)

Lontong Sayur dan Lembu (Rm 12)

Gado-Gado (Rm 10.80)

Pinadang Ikan Patin (Rm 5.80)

Avocado Juice (Rm 9.90)

Pempek is definitely the signature dish here. We had the Single Set which comes in few huge pieces fit for at least 2 diners. They were deep fried and possessed resilient texture, definitely not bouncy but not mushy soft either. One of them contained Egg and to be eaten together with a thick, sweet Vinegar-like dip as well as condiments like Dried Shrimp (in powder form) and Cucumber. Not addictive but not too shabby for a change. 

Being a fan of Gado-Gado, we could vouch that the quality here was decent, though the dressing could be thicker. The greens were appropriate and the toppings were generous. Both Lontong and Pinadang were a little exotic though; the former choice was a concoction of mixed Vegetables (perhaps Banana Shoots as well) and a spoonful of chopped Chilies while the latter option featured Indonesian-styled Assam Pedas. Both were unique in its own way but may be an acquired taste.
