One of my friend introducing me this Indonesian balinese food, Naughty Nuri, located at Desa Sri Hartamas. When we arrived there, it is crowded with people. It is just a normal weekday and to my surprise it is this much people having dinner at this place. Personally I see this place decoration is almost resemble places in Kuta, Bali. Not to mention that they do have shop in Bali and it is the first and original store. I do curious why the first name is naughty, as it is not a common name for a restaurant.
While waiting for our big feast, we start with porky nachos with cheese. I wish the cheese is more so that the bottom nachos able to eat with cheese. The taste pretty much nothing special, except it is pork and not common for Malaysian dishes.
Our second dish is grilled hog’s platter. We order two plates for this simply the roast pork invite us to have second plate. The moment I eat the sausage, it is juicy and nice. I love this platter dish and really no regrets to have second plate.
Here comes the signature dish of Naughty Nuri that the waiter recommend to us. It is signature pork ribs. I love it much, they use Indonesian’s traditional sweet soy sauce, so you can taste the sweetness in the juicy pork meat. I wish they increase the portion as the group that I ate with are all carnivore and they do finish this dish so fast. We even eat it with fingers, so that we can suck the bone to clean all the meat that stick to the bone. I personally highly recommend this dish for first timer, and in fact I will order this again when I come to dine here.
Our next meal is this traditional notorious short ribs. This ribs is not pork ribs, but actually beef ribs. The juicy and tenderness of the meat, together eating with white rice. Indeed it is really how Indonesian people enjoy it much. I also want to highlight the sambal (chilli), it cooked nicely. If they put fried garlic and using different kind of rice that is dry, this dish will become all time favourite dish that you will want to have.
Of course to shows to our wives and for health purpose, we do order salad. Nothing much that I can say for this except it is green, with pork, and good to eat as ‘sorbet’ to wash our meaty taste. This plate is must have for Instagram purpose, and mainly for guilt-free plate.
Overall, Naughty Nuri restaurant is worth one star. It is actually quite close to two stars in my personal opinion. Just that it need to improve in their seasoning to make each dishes outstanding. If you eat pork ribs and also beef ribs, you would not find to much different seasonings which sad to say it does not bring uniqueness of these two dishes. I even ensuring my tongue clean for any taste to test these two dishes. There are some parts of the meat actually dry and hard, I believe it is overcooked on the grilled that makes it hard, plus sweet soy sauce makes it hard to grill nicely on top of charcoal. I do recommend to come this place in group, so that you can enjoy their big platter.
