Several weeks ago, SC & I were invited to a breakfasting with fellow JalanSutra friends at an Indonesian restaurant called Puang Oca. The restaurant is located next to Mulia Hotel, right at Lapangan Tembak Senayan. I never knew that there’s an Indonesian / Makassar seafood restaurant here, so I’m very excited to try it.
Since it was a breakfasting event, naturally we’re served with some takjil which is usually something sweet. After that, the feast began. For appetizer, each of us got a portion of acar telur ikan tuing tuing which is beautifully presented and tasted delicious. I always like the flying fish eggs crunchy/chewy texture that is served in a tangy sauce, so it tasted very refreshing. Next for main course we got several dishes: Makassar’s specialized dish such as ikan sukkang bakar, ikan kudu-kudu and one of Bofet Maknyus’ specialty: Itiak Lado Mudo. Overall I love all the dishes. The fish were fresh and perfectly cooked, the owner also explained how to properly cook ikan sukkang (also known as ikan kambing-kambing). The ikan kudu-kudu were also delicious and beautifully presented. The Padangnese dishes from Bofet Maknyus were also good, although it was a bit too mild for my liking. For dessert we got a Makassar dessert: es pisang ijo which was perfect to clean out palate.
Overall, It was a great night, we had a lot of fun and laugh. I was quite impressed by the food served by Puang Oca, everything we tried that night tasted & looked so good. We’ll look forward to visit this place again.
