Padang taste in Balikpapan Apr 16, 2011
If you are familiar with Indonesian food, Padang food is the kind of food you can find everywhere. Originally from Padang ( west sumatra ) which famous of it's spicy and curry dishes. However the taste of Padang food are quiet different one to another, depends who owned the restaurant and how they cook it.
We called it Rumah Makan Padang which translated to Padang restaurant.
Simpang Raya is one of the famous Padang restaurant chain in Indonesia. Balikpapan has one, which one of the most visited.
It is located close to the BP terminal, one block before ACE Hardware building. It is impossible to miss, as it has the typical rumah gadang roof.
It has various selection of Padang dishes including Martabak Mesir and Sate padang. The taste is close to the original padang food, tasty as always.
For whom not eating spicy food, many selections of dishes but most of it ready to eat. Only Martabak Mesir ( indonesian version of omelet) and the Sate Padang ( bbq with yellow curry sauce )are cooked based on the order.
