RS Deli – Sedap Chicken Satay and Beef Rendang Burgers

RS Deli – Sedap Chicken Satay and Beef Rendang Burgers
by

People go to RS Deli mainly for two things – For their sweet garlic emping crackers, and Nasi Lemak Burger. Even as a bottle of the Indonesia crackers go at $18, they are usually quickly snapped up during festivals. Only because they are from the famous Rasa Sayang brand.

Just as you may be even wondering what “RS” means or sell, RS Deli is a new spin-off from Rasa Sayang – a rather popular brand for their Indonesia snacks and kueh lapis.

The deli is a casual Indonesian restaurant along Upper Thomson Road, which gives traditional dishes a modern take. They are most famous for their Nasi Lemak Burger ($8.90), where the buns are made of glutinous coconut rice buns, with fillings of otah otah, omelette and sambal. Other dishes include a Wok Fried Kampong Spaghetti ($6.90), Spaghetti Rebus ($6.90), and Ikan Bakar Yellow Rice ($8.00).

RS Deli’s self-created Chicken Satay Burger ($9.00) served with fries and coleslaw, is quite ‘sedap’ because the drizzled peanut sauce is smooth and fragrant. The satay sauce, slightly sweeter than the usual local versions, is rather addictive on its own.

While trying not to make a mess is quite a challenge, the entire combination actually works also due to its easy-to-bite-off char-grilled chicken thigh and fluffy bun.

The sauce on the Beef Rendang Burger ($10.00) feels like it’s made from some age-old grandmother’s recipe –rich, spicy and tasty. Perhaps it is. While I thought the patty could be juicier, I think the RS Deli people managed to blend both modern and traditional tastes quite well together.

Another one of my favourite dish is the Belado Fish & Chips ($8.00), a deep-fried breaded pacific dory served with homemade sweet chili sauce. I have to admit the belado sauce itself stole the entire thunder from the fish, which would have otherwise been ordinary. And when I found out there was a chicken wings version, I knew I have to have it the next time.

Opened by head chef Derwin Jamin and business partner Jimmy Foo, the duo certainly got many cooking tips from Mdm “Rasa Sayang” Lai Siu Ing herself, which also helps out at the kitchen occasionally. Something I wish to see? More of Rasa Sayang influences, like perhaps a very indulgent Kueh Lapis with Gelato or Mee Siam Pasta.

The strange thing is, if some fastfood restaurant in Singapore were to introduce a Satay or Rendang burger, people would just flock for it.

So while the new restaurant may not be entirely polished, or the mass market may not see Indonesia-style burgers as entirely hip to check out, RS Deli presents some gems and surprises that you are unlikely to find elsewhere.
