Tambuah Mas Indonesian Homestyle Cuisine

Counterclockwise from top: Cumi-Cumi Goreng, Singkong Santan, and Gado Gado

I've never really been a huge fan of this place (19 Tanglin Road #04-10, 6733-3333), and after eating there again tonight, I'm still not particularly impressed. Admittedly, I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was, but I think part of it is simply the result of being spoiled by a few recent meals in Jakarta. Take, for instance, that gado gado above. I pretty much ate the whole thing, but it just didn't inspire me like Gado-Gado Boplo Ratu did.

Kepala Ikan Istimewa

Well, there was one interesting thing tonight: this gigantic fishhead in a tangy assam sauce, all kept warm on a burner. The fish itself was kinda nasty (i.e., not exactly the freshest thing in the world), but the sauce was interesting enough for me to go back for a second scoop to pour over my rice. We really weren't expecting such a big fishhead though.

The quality of Indon food at Tambuah Mas has definitely gone down over the years.
