Why oh why am I so cursed? I can’t believe they had closed down the one and only Indonesian restaurant in Bangkok! Probably the only one in the entire country! Clearly, I’m super bummed and completely peeved. Thought it was a rumour when I first heard it today and I quicky called up the number I had to check if it’s true. Sadly, it was true. Bali Restaurant, located at SoiRuamRudee actually served decent Indonesian food and has been our favourite eatery for a while. It certainly satisfy the occasional cravings of stuffing ourselves silly with proper Indonesian food. The only place that actually served up home-made Rendang and fantastic GorengPisang too.Since it’s certified halal, it is also one of the few places to take my parents to when they are in town. See! I swear there’s a conspiracy…whatever I like, they take it away.
What makes the blow worse is that Bali restaurant has recently been replaced by……..get this: ANOTHER Thai restaurant. Isn‘t there already enough Thai restaurants around already, given this is frigging damn Thailand? The notion of Thais only liking their Thai food seems to hold true. I wonder if the restaurant went bust because it didn’t suit the Thai palate or if there were other reasons. Whatever it is, it’s such a shame. . Here I am, jinxed again. No more authentic Indonesian food in Bangkok…sigh!
