Kota 88 Restaurant
The meaning of ‘Kota’ is derived from the indonesian word, ‘city’. However, it is also a slang that is used to describe
Chinatown in Jakarta, as it was the city closest to the port where trading took place.
Masakan Tionghoa Indonesia
In Kota88, we serve Masakan Tionghoa Indonesia (Chinese Indonesian Cuisine), which is a mix of Chinese dishes with local Indonesian culinary characteristics. It all started with Chinese immigrants in Indonesia many years ago where this traditional cooking style became an expression of our culture which is the inspirational backbone for our restaurant. Hailing from Glodok, Jakarta’s chinatown, we are proud to bring our succulent heritage to Singapore, and present the Kota 88 Restaurant at 907 East Coast Road.
This style of cooking is generally similar to Chinese food but it is modified with chilli, coconut milk and traditional Indonesian spices and seasoning. The flavours tend to be sweeter than the original Chinese recipe of the food.
From our menu, we feature a signature item called ‘Nasi Campur Babi’. It is a Chinese Indonesian variant of combination pork rice platter that is mixed to a palatable perfection. This dish consists of Char Siew, Roast Pork, Sweet Pork Satay, Braised Pig Ear, Siomay, Soy Egg, Ngo Hiang and Side Clear Soup.
