Here's a popular one from Pontianak that has opened a branch in Jakarta, Nasi Akwang! They decided to open at Kelapa Gading, though you might see a similar one at Taman Palem. There's also one at Pademangan, which I don't know if it's the real one from Pontianak cause they say that their only branch is the one at Kelapa Gading and Taman Palem!
The interior totally caught me off guard cause I wouldn't guess that just a Nasi Campur restaurant would be this modern and minimalist! It's usually just an old fashioned simple Chinese restaurant. What got me sold is definitely the super fast service, even when they're super crowded! Nice!
NASI TIM CAMPUR IDR 53K
This is the regular portion, there's also the special portion for IDR 73K. The difference is on the amount of the meat and that's it.
Their Nasi Tim Campur uses pork, so the only difference with the usual Nasi Campur is the rice. The rice here is kinda mushy like how Nasi Tim is supposed to be like and there's a piece of boiled chicken at the bottom.
My favorite is their Lapchiong! The sweet and savory flavor is very well balanced. You don't need to ask about the roast pork, it's the ultimate best..lol! This also comes with soup like regular Nasi Campur!
NASI CAMPUR SPECIAL IDR 68K
Here comes the Special, just look at those meat! At first glance I didn't think I'd be able to finish it but I did anyways. Actually, the regular portion is definitely enough but I just wanted to try their special size or maybe I'm just not normal..lol!
Toppings are pretty much the same as the Nasi Tim Campur but the chicken is grilled here instead of boiled. Also, the savory rice will be poured with a white thick sauce like all the Nasi Campur in Pontianak and that is what makes it taste so good!
The rice is like food for a sick patient cause of how mushy it is. It's even mushier than the Nasi Tim!
Will I come back? Definitely! I was thinking of trying the one at Pademangan though, I'd want to see if they're the real deal or just coincidentally similar? What do you readers think?
