Wok-tossed Laksa ($12) and Dry Mee Siam ($12)
Both noodles are fried with seafood and taupok/taukwa and they taste pretty similar. They are not bad, but didn’t leave much of an impression~

Bakwan Kepiting ($6 per portion)
Meatballs of pork, crab and bamboo shoots are served in a chicken broth that is packed with flavour - love this!

Ayam Goreng ($11/22)
The deep fried marinated boneless chicken is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

Nyonya Ngoh Hiang ($16)
The deep fried pork and prawn rolls are fragrant and delicious.

Sotong Masak Hitam ($14/28)
The tender squid is cooked in an intense squid ink rempah - wasn’t expecting the wokhei but love it!

Premium Chap Chye ($12/24)
This is classic comfort food comprising cabbage braised with dried mushrooms, prawns, pork belly, gingko nuts, black fungus and glass noodles.

Ayam Buah Keluak ($15/30)
This is my all time favourite Peranakan dish.
The boneless chicken thigh is braised in a rich sauce and it goes so well with the nutty flesh of the buah keluak seeds.

Babi Pongtay ($15/30)
The slow-cooked pork belly in fermented bean sauce is soft and flavourful.

The set lunch is such a steal! I ordered Basil Pork with Rice and Egg ($9.90) and it came with a drink of your choice and mango sticky rice.

The basil pork is really good - I opted for non-spicy because I heard that it can quite spicy, but the stir-fried minced pork, basil and long bean was still very fragrant and tasty nonetheless. I had a generous glass of Thai milk tea and though the mango sticky rice was quite small, it was still nice to end lunch on a sweet note. Can’t wait to come back again!

Located at the heart Tanjong Pagar, Bara Food offers authentic Indonesian grilled rice in the CBD.

There is a variety of grilled rice sets to choose from. Ayam Goreng Serundeng ($14.50) features Javanese style fried chicken topped with a fried spice and herbs, while Bumbu Kemanji ($14.50) comes with stir-fried shredded chicken with lemon basil leaves. The chicken is tender, moist and flavourful. This is absolutely delicious.

Each set also comes with grilled rice, crispy Melinjo crackers, fried tofu and tempeh, and chilli. The biggest surprise has to be the rice that is wrapped in banana leaves and grilled - it is so savoury and fragrant, which reminds me of chicken rice. Even something simple like the fried tofu and tempeh are done very well (aromatic and crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside) and everything go really well with the fiery chilli. Love it!

The Nasi Goreng Iga Hitam features squid ink fried rice with braised beef ribs and a sunny side up. The fried rice is packed with umami and it is surprisingly spicy - definitely delivered a kick there. The beef ribs are braised thoroughly in a sweet and savoury sauce. No fried rice is complete without a fried egg and the sunny side up brings everything together nicely. Lastly, special shout out to the terasi chilli which is shiok and savoury - goes really well with the crackers!

We ordered Yum Salmon ($24.90), which is a tangy and spicy raw salmon salad. This is my go-to appetiser whenever I am here.
