Returning to Rezeki Seafood Restaurant in Batam
I was really looking forward to coming back to Rezeki tonight (Pantai Bath Besar, +62-778-761180). Not only is this place all about fresh, cheap seafood, but I really wanted to get that wonderful "BBQ Fish" that I had the first time I was here.
I was a bit let down tonight though. The seafood was of course still fresh, but the fish that we ordered was dry and uninspiring. Part of it surely was because it we got a different (larger) species of fish, but also this one wasn't prepared in a banana leaf, and instead done straight on a fire (basically, ikan bakar). Does anyone know what it's called when it's done inside a banana leaf then?
Despite that, it was still fun to try a few new things, like some clams whose shells were surprisingly hairy, and whose meat inside was dark grey and orange in color; it wasn't very tasty, but the meat was nice and firm. Too bad that they didn't have any gonggong tonight though. Apparently that is *the* local thing to get here.
