Indonesian Food! @ Little Sister

So I think I may have a slight obsession with Indonesian Food now… I honestly never had Indonesian food before my visit last weekend at Little Sister (@LittleSisterTO). Thanks to my co-worker’s recommendation and non stop raving about this tucked away gem, I never would have made my way to visit this place mid-town. I’m not sure what it is (I’m thinking its the coconut curry sauce + additional of cilantro to everything that makes it so darn addictive!) but I can’t get enough of this place! – I’ve already made reservations to visit next week =)

So this may sound slightly insane – but Little Sister is fully booked 99% of the time. I made reservations 3 weeks in advanced and the only time slots available were 5:30PM or 8:00PM – and if you go on their website and check the reservations times now – you’ll probably find the same time slots…I’m guessing they save a bit of tables for walk in.

Highlights of the evening were the tacos! – The Balinese shredded chicken taco & Rendang Taco were delicious! Although they were a little messy to eat (what tacos aren’t messy to begin with?) – it was the perfect amount of goodness and kick to each one. I have zero to little amount of tolerance for spicy foods but these just hit the spot! The skewers were done quite well – perfect amount of spice – chicken was not dry at all. I do recommend both the spiced chicken and satay (peanut sauce) pork skewer.

The coconut curry shrimp was probably the most memorable item for me. I’m 99.9% sure the coconut curry sauce did it for me – although I was feeling the heat of the spiciness – the sauce tasted so good I was still determined to eat it with the fried rice (which btw is amazing). My friend who has tried Indoniesan food commented that the fried rice is really sweet (I thought it was spot on because I loved the additional of coconut) We ended up asking the owner about this (and about the braised pork – it was quite lean) – it was simply the owner and husband’s take on Indonesian food when they were travelling around the world.

Last but not least, the coconut pudding is to die for (no exaggeration). The pudding at the bottom reminded me of panna cotta. Texture was quite similiar with the exception of the shredded coconut pieces – oh so good =)

    I do like how the portions are small enough that they don’t fill you up but enough to make you want to order more 🙂
