Batagor is one of Indonesian food I love most. The name is shorts for bakso-tahu goreng. It’s roughly as fried tofu and meatballs and those are the main ingredients. To top them up, it’s sweet peanut sauce. Batagor is relatively cheap, delicious, versatile, and sometimes it’s belly-filling. It can be considered as street food/snack and you can find it especially at the front yard of elementary schools or middle schools. This time I’m not talking about it but like a tent-based hawker instead and the name is Batagor Sempurna. Well, it doesn’t serve only batagor but also siomayi (dumplings set) and chicken porridge. Let’s check it out right away!
So What’s The Deal About Batagor Sempurna?
Well, at first I was looking if this town has recommended batagor and upon googling, I found this place. Batagor Sempurna which is pretty remarkable and has pretty high reviews and ratings. So, there I went, to get me some night treat and dinner at once. It’s really easy to find and I’m going to share the location at the end of this post.
One day I was there at 8PM and the batagor was all sold out. So about next days after I tried 1 hour earlier and luckily, they still have some left. It’s considerably cheap, though, only IDR 8k per portion meanwhile some other hawkers/sellers have reached IDR 12k+. Also in Batagor Sempurna the portion is quite large.
Now let’s talk about the taste. The meat was surprisingly salty, above average, and had strong fish smells. Well, that might be a good sign of them using plenty of fishes. I personally think that’s so strong BTW. Another thing, the fried tofu was great but the meat (again) was really chewy. It’s surprisingly little bit different than what people said but again, THIS IS PERSONAL OPINION and everyone has different taste preferences. The peanut sauce would be great if they reduce the soy sauce and add more peanuts. That’s from me, I guess.
And Now To Conclude..
I personally didn’t take this as the best batagor I’ve ever tried. On the other hand, they offered a large portion of set and as well as in considerably cheap price compared to other batagor hawkers. I think that could be a great point to attract customers and slowly improve their food as time goes.
