Pondok Jawa Timur at Far East Plaza, Singapore

Clockwise from top: rawon, perkedel, and kangkung belacan

I kinda had a hunch that I would like this place given that the menu started with Indonesian soups (14 Scotts Road #05-22, 6884-5853). Sop buntut was at the top, followed by soto ayam. Third on the list was something that I hadn't tried before: rawan, or that dark soup above. It was dark because it was based on not just beef, but also keluak. The taste of the latter was subtle, while the texture of the former wasn't anything special, but I liked how they weren't afraid to make it salty. Indeed, the best part about this place is how deliciously savory things like that kangkung were. It was the best item that I had today.
