Little Indonesia in Kingsford

Kingsford is where to go when you crave for some Indonesian delicacies.

I constantly had this suggestion come to me. So, when the craving kicked in, I took the bus to Kingsford, for my Indonesian food feast.

Kingsford is an eastern suburb of Sydney under the government of City of Randwick. It consists mainly residential area with University of New South Wales (UNSW) within the locality. All the Indonesian restaurants are along Anzac Parade Road.

There's construction work along this road

Any internet search I did of 'top Indonesian restaurants in Kingsford', Ayam Goreng 99 popped up as the top result. This is the restaurant that serve Indonesian fried chickens and grilled chickens as their favourite items. However, I was not lucky. The restaurant was closed for Christmas break until end of January 2017.

After walking around and searching for another recommendation in the internet, we decided to pay a visit to Indo Rasa Restaurant. The restaurant was quite full that time. We ordered a plate of nasi kuning (yellow coconut rice), beef rendang, ayam goreng (fried chicken), sambal goreng (spicy tofu-tempe-long bean) and chilli sauce plus a plate of gado-gado (Indonesian mixed vegetable with peanut sauce). We also ordered a plate of chicken satay. I was not really into the rendang but the rest were amazing. We swept all of them clean! I went into food comma with AUD 30 (~SGD 34).

Another strong recommendation is Rosebery Martabak. Martabak is traditional Indonesian sweet pancake. The batter is poured in a stone pan on top of fire stove, the filling can be crushed peanuts, chocolate sprinkles, sesame, cheese and anything you can imagine.

It is quite actually difficult to find good martabak outside my hometown. But this one is actually pretty good, even better than the best that I could find in Singapore.

Another recommendation

A box of 8 pieces

The Indonesian pancake called martabak manis

University of New South Wales is located in this suburb of Kensington. It was established in 1949, until today it is one of the top 8 university in Australia.

Hello UNSW

Students, oh, how young they are
