Padangnese is one of the most famous Indonesian cuisine I can’t live without.
My siblings and I had plenty of Padangnese food growing up so we are always on the look out for Padang good restaurants. A little bird told us that Rumah Makan Padang Sederhana is the best Padangnese restaurant located in East Surabaya. And off we went.
We’ve frequented the restaurant since then even though when compared to Rumah Makan Padang Upik in Samarinda and Salero Kito in Melbourne, Rumah Makan Padang Sederhana Surabaya turned out to be mediocre. It lacks in both variety and complexity of taste usually found in Padangnese cuisine. Also, the meat are usually less tender than what I usually had. We enjoyed them, nonetheless. Our favourite dishes are Beef Rendang, Ayam Kare, Ayam Pop, Sambal Hijau and Otak Sapi.
I heard that Rumah Makan Padang Sederhana are also famous in other cities such as Jakarta. Would the dishes be even better in Jakarta, I wonder.
