Minangkabau Magic @ Restoran Sari Ratu
FoodStreet wishes Happy Ramadhan & Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all Muslims in Malaysia and around the world.


Most of us would generally assume that Indonesia food is similar to Malaysian food, thus not worth trying. Oh ho! On the very contrary, Indonesia cuisine is just as illustrious and unique as any other cuisine in the world.

As Indonesia comprises more than 15000 islands, there are various styles of cooking, not to mention the Dutch influence as well in their cooking. Therefore, with such a rich heritage, Indonesian cuisine is surely something to look forward to.

Restoran Sari Ratu specializes in authentic Nasi Padang and Minangkabau cuisine. The restaurant itself originated from Indonesia and has spread its wings to Malaysia. With 6 outlets in Malaysia and many more to come, one would wonder why Minangkabau cuisine is so easily accepted by the public.

The beauty of Minangkabau cuisine is that it is a rather neutral taste. As explained by Purwandi of Sari Ratu, their flavours are easily accepted by all as it is not too spicy or too bland. In a way, it is a combines the best of both worlds, giving it an authentic taste that caters to everyone.

The Ayam Kampung Pop is no ordinary dish, befitting its quirky name. The chicken is served with a side of spiced chili soy sauce and poached pucuk ubi. The chicken is first half-steamed and then fried to perfection. The result; a fragrant chicken that’s moist on the inside, and slightly crispy on the outside. Do remember to dip the chicken into the spiced chili soy sauce as the sauce brings out the aroma of the chicken.

Belut Balado is a unique dish of stir-fried eel. While looking like the humble ikan bilis, it packs a punch with its intense aroma.

The Daging Rendang is a beef dish, cooked with rending. The rending is thicker and more intense in flavour as compared to the local rending variant. Purwandi noted that due to its long cooking hours, 4 hours to be exact, the daging rending can be kept out in the open without a refrigerator for 2 to 3 days!

The Es Teler is a common dessert found in Indonesia. The rich combination of avocado, coconut, jackfruit, sago, attap chee and sago, is drowned under coconut milk. While somewhat similar to Malaysian’s ABC, the Es Teler is more focused on the usage of fruits as compared to nuts. That being said, the Es Teler will definitely being the sweet tooth out of you!
