Bringing one of South East Asia’s most vibrant cuisines to Sri Lanka.
Indonesian Cuisine is known for its vibrancy, diversity and spice in each recipe and dish. Sumatran Spice is a stall at the Food Studio, Colombo City Center that serves up a few replications of vibrant and indigenous Indonesian dishes.
Chicken Nasi Goreng – LKR 850
The Chicken Nasi Goreng was a perfect replication of an authentic Indonesian nasi goreng (minus the prawn cracker, so I was slightly disappointed). The rice was cooked well and was topped with a fried egg over which they had sprinkled some sambal. However, the meat in the chicken satay was a little too dry and tough to bite off the kebab, so that was a minus for me.
Beef Rendang – LKR 1200
The Beef Rendang was a clear winner for me. The meat was juicy and succulent! The gravy was strongly aromatic with the scent of spices, that I was pretty impatient to rush to my table with the dish to devour it. The overall dish consisted of a cup of cooked white rice, vegetables and sambal.
