Rumah Makan Wong Solo, Bandar Baru Bangi

It was Bandung revisited.. at least in the form of a restaurant. Wong Solo Restaurant, serving authentic Indonesian cuisine, has finally arrived in Pusat Bandar Baru Bangi. So of course lah we have to check it out, still fresh from our Bandung trip. The place had all the decors you'd expect to find in an Indonesian rumah makan. They even have a musolla, seems like the owners wish to maintain that Indonesian eatery trend here.
As for the menu, they had it all too, almost - ayam penyet, empal sapi, pecel lele, cumi goreng, gado-gado, tempe, cah kangkong, cap cay - and the drinks - soda gembira, es buah.. just like Bandung lah..! We went for the set meal - either ayam, sapi, cumi or fish (but there's no ikan terbang here) - served with rice, tempe, tauhu, balado terung, vege and one cup of mineral water.

I went for ayam bakar. The ayam was quite small.. I remember Bandung's ayam was much bigger.. but the taste, just nice. Tasted barbecuey and tender.

My wife ordered the empal sapi, and sure enough, the beef was tender, soft and juicy.

The rest of the meal, like the tauhu and tempe, complement the meal sufficiently, but beware of the balado, it could be a little spicy for you.

They also provides cubicles for those yang suka makan bersila.

If you're looking for a simple, moderate but fine-tasting meal, pay a visit to Wong Solo. We want to give it our highest recommendations, but maybe we are still biased from our Bandung visit..
