Last month, we had a late lunch at Toba Tabo, a popular, upscale version of the common lapo Batak. The place is spacious, nicely designed with a number of Bataknese items and posters of its owner, Viki Sianipar. It was almost empty as we got there at 3 pm, so we can easily get a table. The menu is a bit more extensive than ordinary lapos and we ordered: panggang 19.8K, naniura 16K, soup isi 6K, daun singkong 6K, terong tauco 6K. This is the first time I tasted Naniura (Bataknese style raw fish). The taste was great, with a strong hint of lime. But I don’t quite like the texture as it is too chewy. The other dishes were also good. The rice we ordered came in a little bakul, and as I looked closer, I was pleasantly surprised to find salted fish in the rice. In my opinion, this place is good enough for someone who want to sample Bataknese dishes in a more elegant setting. As for me, I still prefer the atmosphere of lapo Batak at Senayan 🙂

    Bentuknya sih lebih kaya ikan matang, mungkin akibat direndam dalem jeruk nipis.
