Tambuah Mas is one of the oldest Indonesian restaurants in Singapore having been in business since 1981. Their new outlet, Tambuah Mas Great World City is one of the many new eateries that have recently opened at the newly renovated Great World City. We had lunch there recently.
Among the sea of new eateries and bright signs, the familiarity and tranquility of Tambuah Mas Great World City was a welcome sight. Like their other two outlets at Tanglin Shopping Centre and Paragon, it has an old-school look of a traditional Indonesian restaurant that serves traditional Indonesian homestyle cuisine from Padang, Sulawesi and Java.
Tambuah Mas Great World City Menu
Here are some sample pages from the Tambuah Mas Great World City menu. We have not eaten at Tambuah Mas for quite a while but we can still remember many of the dishes. The tahu telur ($12.50), chicken satay ($9.90) and lontong were our instinctive selections. An order of nasi campur ($13) completed our lunch selection.
The tahu telor (picture above) and sate ayam (picture below) were as good as we remembered them to be. These are the two must try items at Tambuah Mas. The tahu telor (fried beancurd with battered egg) looks like a big heavy dish, but was light and tasty. The satay was juicy and grilled to a nice slightly charred finish.
The lontong (picture above) and nasi campur (picture below) are quinetessential Indonesian dishes. Very nice and delicious. The latter is a complete meal for a single person – rice, vegetables, egg and a choice of chicken or beef. We selected beef rendang which was very tender and well cooked.
Overall, we have an enjoyable Indonesian lunch at Tambuah Mas Great World City. The new B1 level of GWC has been extensively renovated. We can’t wait to try the other food outlets there.
