Warung Leko, The Curve

During my work trips to Jakarta, I’ve grown to really enjoy nasi padang as well as ayam penyet. Warung Leko serves a good version of the latter and an even better iga (beef ribs) penyet. The ribs were so good – crispy on the outside, generously seasoned and falling of the bone. Absolutely lip-smacking with the sambal provided.


I spotted a Warung Leko at The Curve and it got me excited. The menu is the same but they offer lesser variety compared to the outlet in Jakarta. But it didn’t matter because I was only interested in three items; ayam penyet, iga penyet and sup otot.


Iga Penyet


Ayam Penyet

The iga penyet (RM15 per set) wasn’t as tasty as the one in Jakarta but it was still pretty darn good. Good enough to keep me satisfied till my next work trip. The ayam penyet (RM12 per set) was also quite good, served on a base of sambal just like the beef ribs. Pity they were pretty stingy with the sambal and additional sambal is chargeable.


Sop Buntut

The sop buntut (RM13.70) packed a load on ommph and flavour from the chilli paste, lime and fried shallot. I also liked that the oxtail was cooked till tender and nicely chewy. Unfortunately, this soup is laden with MSG, like the one in Jakarta. But it’s too good not to finish, so I paid the price an hour later. 😛


Tender pieces of oxtail

Our bill came up to RM40.70 for the above. Portions are smaller in comparison to the Warung Leko in Jakarta but the bill is also cheaper. Plus you don’t have to pay tax or service charge for now, unlike in Indonesia where 21% tax is compulsory. 😯

Ambiance: 6/10
Price: 6/10
Food: 6.5/10 (halal)
Verdict: Good beef ribs and fiery sambal. Also try the sup buntot.

    Hi Sue Lynn, which area do you stay in Jakarta normally? Need to try the jajan pasar at wet markets! They are the tastiest 🙂

      Hi Mariska,

      I usually stay in Thamrin or Senayan. Nearer to office. 🙂

      Thanks for the tip. Any wet market in particular I should check out?

    I saw you’ve been to Muara Karang area, their wet market (Pasar Muara Karang) is pretty good!

    There’s also Pasar Laris in Taman Surya, here’s a review I found online

    Happy eating! I’m so jealous because I haven’t been home to Jakarta in like 1.5 years now!

        Sounds wicked! 😀 Thanks dear!!

      Yeah I went to Muara Karang with a good friend who is a local there. A bit hard to go about the city without a car. 🙁

  3. Sambal is normally not enough for me when I had ayam penyet, chargeable for refill sound no good for me 🙁

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Well it’s not too expensive to get the refill so I’m still ok with it. 🙂
