Their Pluit branch was located on the boulevard. They're three doors away from Fruits Market. In front of their restaurant, you'll see boxes of fresh seafood. You could choose how big you want your fish to be, which crab or shrimps that suit your liking (and cash on your wallet).

The place was spacious, with a couple of meeting rooms on the second floor.
Lumpia Goreng

On appetizer I tried Lumpia Goreng (Fried Spring Roll) and Otak-otak (Fish Cake). I know that lumpia is not exactly Makassar food, but it actually taste pretty good. The vegetables were seasoned, sauteed and wrapped in a thin crunchy skin.
The Otak-otak was thicker than the usual one, but it was lacking the fish aroma and taste. The texture was not spot on; it was chewier, almost similar to a rice cake texture.
Moving on to the main course, there were Ikan Aji-aji Bakar Sambal Rica, Ikan Kudu-kudu Goreng Telor Asin, Cumi Goreng Mentega and Kerang Putih Masak Tauco.

The first one was Ikan Aji-aji Bakar Sambal Rica (Grilled Aji-aji Fish with Sambal Rica). The fish was grilled, topped with spicy sambal rica spread all over the fish. I always love sambal and this one was quite good too. Even though I wish it was spicier, thankfully the sambal on the side gave needed the kick.

The next one was my favourite, it was Ikan Kudu-kudu Goreng Telor Asin (Fried Kudu-kudu Fish with Salted Egg). Kudu-kudu is fish that was specially shipped from Sulawesi. It looks grumpy and scary, but never judge a book by its cover because this dish was da bomb! The fish was fried and coated with salted egg yolk while their thick skin was fried and served as a plate. Love! I ate this without really noticing the telor asin (salted egg) on the name. I'm not a big fan of telor asin, but the egg yolk on the outside of the fried fish, gives it a delicious punch to it. Yum!

This Cumi Goreng Mentega (Fried Squid with Butter) was one of the crowd pleaser, people on the table keep asking for more if the squid. The diced squid was cooked butter and soy sauce, resulting a thick yummy sauce. Super delish!

This Kerang Putih Masak Tauco (White Clam with Tauco) dish was nice but leaves no impression on me, unlike the other three dishes that came before this. Maybe it was the tauco that turns me off? Tauco is fermented soy, for those of you who don’t know.

I was excited about this Cah Bunga Pepaya (Papaya Flower stir-fry), because I love stir fried veggies. The papaya flower was not bitter at all, but lacking in flavour. It was more on the bland side, so it was a big disappointment for me because a well cooked veggie could add another level to the whole plate.
This Sayur Asem (Sour Soup) gets my attention, because it doesn't look like other Sayur Asem. Rather than a clear soup, this one had a milky orange shade, as if they add coconut milk in the soup. It tasted nice, but nothing special.

Es Palubutung
is a dessert from Makassar, consisting of ripe banana, bubur sumsum, shaved ice and syrup. This is almost similar to Es Pisang Ijo, without the pancake skin on the outside of the banana. The one that I have was a single portion; while their regular portion is good for sharing. I always love dessert and this one was delicious. It was sweet, milky and cold, what's not to love?
This restaurant opens up my eyes to the tasty Kudu-kudu fish that I would definitely recommend it to you. Must try!
