Having a same lunch everyday make me want to puke. Luckily my friend suggests us to have a lunch at one of the famous bungalow-restaurant called D’KL. I heard and read about this restaurant but never thought to try it out. So there goes my Wednesday at D’KL.
D’KL (stand for Di Kampung Likas) is a home base Indonesian cuisine restaurant and operates inside a bungalow house which located at Kampung Likas with dark brown colour on the exterior and design with Jawa feel and kampong style at the interior. They served Indonesian with a touched of Malay cuisine.
You can choose whether you want to dine outside or inside. If you prefer to dine inside, you will able to experience Indonesian (Jawa) dining custom which is to sit on the floor with cross-legged while having your meal. They provide long tables to accommodate more people and it’s suitable for large family. Good for family, office and friends gathering. More relax with air-conditioned, sweet ambience, quiet atmosphere and with a Javanese song playing mixed with Malay in keroncong genre (I’m just guessing..lol) Those prefer windy and flora view can sit at the patio (good news for the smoker). Aha!! they do have a free wi-fi which means you can direct blog about it..lol!!
Drinks you must try out Air Serai and Soda Gembira. Soda Gembira made of rose extract (air bandung) mixed with soda and evaporated milk. It’s taste so delicious with mint taste and definitely you’ll feel happy after drink it hahaha. Air Serai or lemongrass juice is most recommended to try. Feel like went out from massage room after drink it..lol
Ayam Penyet D’KL is one of the chefs recommended. It is an Indonesian cuisine where the chicken is fried until it is golden brown and coated with rice flour and served with sambal. As for the veggies, they served you with acar and cabbage rolled individually. You need an effort to do this. A set of this meal cost you RM12.90 which I considered cheap with the unique presentation plus Indon-ambience.
Fried Tauhu cost RM5.00
Both of us having set of meal (Ayam Penyet) with Soda Gembira, Air Serai and fried tauhu with total cost of RM37.30. That’s considered cheap with the great ambience, great food, helpful and friendly staff and free wi-fi too. We could not get anything cheaper than that.
