Tabo Bah: Does the Fried Samcan Live up to its Hype?

Another time, another place, another quest for a happy meal. Okay, that came out wrong. Scratch McDonald’s off your head. We’ve got something a little (okay, a whole lot) better. On our way home from the airport, we regretted not grabbing a bite earlier so we decided to take the next exit to Pantai Indah Kapuk, at which we all know, the last thing they’re out of is food.

While faced with a bounty of diner choices, upon a good word from my brother, Tabo Bah, a Batak restaurant, became our number one pick. The interior is rather plain and unadorned, but the food is something else entirely.

Tabo Bah: Does the Fried Samcan Live up to its Hype?

Samcan Goreng (Fried 3-layered pork) | 33K (top left)
The famed fried samcan, fried to a golden brown perfection.

Bubur Ayam (Chicken Porridge) | 33K (top right)
Savory porridge with chicken, mushrooms, and scallions.

Rendang Babi (Pork Rendang) | 25K

Rendang’s main ingredient usually comes from a cow. But (surprise, surprise), this surrogate is 100% pork.

Daun Ubi Tumbuk (Ground Yam Leaves) | 17K
Similar to the kind you’d expect to get at Padang restaurants.

The way I like to attack is by way of mixing everything together like so. It’s the best to enjoy everything synchronously. It’s the only way.

Dishes come in little portions, are generally spicy (spicier than most, I would say), and pork-heavy. Spending wise, we paid 150K for two people. Reasonable.

Deserving of a closer look? Mais, oui! Among the crust and crunch of the skin, the soft and fatty inner layer, and the very simplicity yet seductiveness of this dish, we were sure this treat was yanking us further and further away from a healthy and clean lifestyle (but then again, why do we strive for the impossible?).

Tabo Bah: Does the Fried Samcan Live up to its Hype?

Somebody clearly adores pigs!

So to answer the question of whether the Samcan Goreng lives up to its hype? Maybe. What?! YES. And YES. Curious to test your ability to resist temptations? Order a plate of these. Wait 5 minutes. Stare at an empty plate. Best of luck, you’ll be wise not to subject yourself or anyone to such torment.

In short, there wasn’t a dish we didn’t like. Tabo Bah was a unexpected surprise (a good one, of course). We will be back.
