Restoran Dandito Balikpapan Reviews
Yummy crab - enough said! Dec 31, 2009
One of Balikpapan specialty dish is crab dish. The crab here is larger than normal Indonesian crab as it is specifically cultivated in farms. There are a few of famous crab restaurants in the towna nd one of this restaurant is DAndito, located only 1-2km from the airport along Balikpapan main street. This place is quite asy to reach.
The food is of course - suberb! If I don't have amy stomach space limitation, I would probably keep going and licking the plates clean:).
The crab is cooked in special sweet and hot sauce as well as black pepper sauce which is very hot. They also have other seafood dish - such as fish cooked in several ways, fresh waterlily (kangkung), squid andprawns. And there is no better option for the drink other than fresh young coconut, drank from the shell:).
I went here with 4 colleagues, 5 of us ordered 2 portions of crab, 1 fish cooked in sour sauce and 1 squid and 1 vegetables, all of the food we spent 600k Rp ( 60 USD). Not really cheap for normal Indonesian food.. but don't we deserve treat once while:)
