IndoChili – Taste of Indonesia

Rendang Sapi / Beef Rendang

IndoChili is an Indonesian restaurant in Singapore offering culinary delight found throughout Indonesia. The spread ranges from across the archipelago, showcasing its authentic flavours.


Rendang Sapi ($12.80) a.k.a Beef Rendang. This is LD’s favourite dish and she always order this when feasting on nasi padang. The version here is tasty and tender, absorbs the spices nicely. The gravy is thick and aromatic, definitely a “rice thief” dish. Sometimes, they serve meats that are a bit lean, they will get a perfect score if they uses more marbling cuts.

Sop Buntut ($16.80) – Oxtail soup. One of the most popular soup in Indonesia, know for its robust flavour and fall off the bone meat. Definitely, a must order dish here, the soup is robust and the fatty meat just falls off the tailbone. Squish the lime into the soup, for the contrasting twang and best eaten with emping.

Lontong Sayur Medan ($6.80) – Rice Cake with Vegetables Soup. It is normally served as a one-dish item, however, we just order this dish because we like the jackfruit in the soup. The rice cake is thick, sticky and bouncy, generously bask in rich vegetable soup.

Kangkung Balado ($9.80). Ok, this dish is definitely not for me. Looking at the amount of chilli they put inside it, I definitely did not touch the dish. However, LD & QC enjoy every bite of this dish.

Ayam Kari Padang ($9.80). Tender and succulent curry chicken, accompanied with a smooth and rich gravy. It is not too spicy and the gravy goes well with rice.

Sate Ayam Madura ($10.80). Madura is known as the Sate City in Indonesia. The meat is thick, nicely grilled and coated with kecap manis. I would prefer if they are more generous with the peanut gravy.

To go with all the rich dishes above is Achar ($3.80). This homemade pickle vegetables are good to provide the balance to all the dishes above.


I normally like to have the dishes above with white rice (Nasi Putih $1.50) or you can also try their Yellow Rice (Nasi Kuning $2.50).

One of the drinks that I like here is Jus Alpukat ($7.20). This Indonesian version of Avocado Juice has always been my favourite since young. It uses chocolate condensed milk to perk up the drink.

Service is friendly and the restaurant is decorated in traditional Javanese house.
