A couple weeks ago we had  yet another “you’ve got bonus so you have to belanja” session with my colleagues, and this time around our destination was Puti Bungsu Batam at the nearby Lorong Yap Kwan Seng, which technically is close enough you can walk to from KLCC, but obviously we drove there.

The restaurant is visible from Jalan Yap Kwan Seng itself, and located just a stone’s throw away from the Las Vacas. It is also clean, airy, and has a simple yet somewhat tasteful decoration.

Oh, the parking lot is good enough for perhaps half a dozen cars, get there early if you drive.

Puti Bungsu claimed to serve Authentic Padang food, and they have quite a big selection of dishes. There’s ikan bakar, a few types of ayam (including their famous ayam pop), kepala ikan, tunjang (beef tendon), and more.

Additionally, they also have a relatively big menu on drinks, and like any self respecting Indonesian restaurant, they have jus alpukat (avocado + chocolate), which is a must-order for me!

For the nine of us, we ordered up quite a feast. We had tunjang, fish head curry, daging salai (smoked beef), sambal cili (green chili sambal), ayam bob, terung (brinjal), and some vege. All these to go with steamed rice, since we’re after all, Asian.

The dishes were pretty good actually, apart from daging salai which I thought was slightly too tough to chew on. The tunjang almost as good as the version at Kampung Baru. We really liked it.

According to Syeka, the colleague who belanja all of us, the meal turned out to be almost RM 40 per pax, inclusive of some pretty fancy drinks we had. It’s definitely not cheap, but for the ambiance and location, not out of expectation.

Puti Bungsu is certainly a pretty decent place for a bit of a get-together, and one that happens to serve good, authentic Padang food. We enjoyed it.

  1. KY, I try Indonesian food long time ago when in college. It was Indonesian festival and all the Indonesian students made the food and have entertainment too.
    It was so good the food and would try thing on my trip to Malaysia and Singapore and Taiwan and Hongkong with my new husband.

    • Vickie: When I was in Minnesota we used to host Malaysian night at college every year too.

  2. Nasi Padang! Always among the top on my list! Yum yummmm!!!!
