One of my colleague Haji Wahab is going to retire in a week's time and my big boss asked that we organised a farewell lunch for him at Simpang Tiga Restoran which serves Indonesian Cuisine. This restaurant was newly opened sometime last September if I am not mistaken. Nice ambience but the service is lacking . Food is just above average ....this is my own opinion :p This is what we had for the farewell lunch last Wednesday...
We were served Sambal Petai ( Spicy Hot Stinking Beans With Shrimps ) , Their signature Chicken Curry -fragrant is too overpowering with coconut oil ( not my kind of curry..too much santan ) , Stir Fry Aubergine With Chilli , Deep Fried Tilapia with special Indonesian chilli dipping sauce ( this is so very yummy and spicy hot ) Rice served in basket lined with banana leaves thus giving the rice a very nice fragrance.
Over all , a very simple farewell lunch for my colleague. Once again it is not the food but the fellowship with one another that matters. We gave him a watch as a retirement gift. He is very happy and appreciative of the gift . We will miss him for he is our landscaping man. So now we have no one to ask about landscaping until his replacement comes in a few months time. For the time being, have fun drooling over this Indonesian cuisine so to say :))
Sambal Petai...this dish is good, fresh shrimps and the stinking
beans tasted crunchy and has a nice subtle fragrance
this Curry Chicken is appetizing though it has a strong coconut oil free
they used free range chicken to cook this dish..I found out later from
the organizer :))
stir fry aubergine with lots of chilli
Deep fried Tilapia to be eaten with the chillie dippings below
It was so crunchy that all the bones can be eaten :p

Here is me wishing my colleague Haji Wahab a happy retirement
and all the best in whatever you do !
