Excellent. Worth the Effort to Get There!
Posted on 08 / 20 / 2012
We ate at Miracle of Deity on two occasions in August 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it both times.
There is a huge picture menu, with a lot of faux meat options (plenty of other options though, if faux meat isn't your thing). The dishes are mainly Indonesian fare with some Malaysian/Chinese/Taiwanese influence. I was particularly fond of the rendang (though it was a fairly small serving), the 'green rice', and both of the mushroom dishes we had - one being a fried mushroom entree, the other being a thick sweet and sour style mushroom dish. The food isn't especially healthy, with a bit of deep frying and heavy sauces etc, but that's not my priority when I'm travelling, so I loved it. We ordered a *lot* of food, and the bill was somewhere around the 150,000 IRP mark each time, including fresh juices.
The elevated 'gazebo' layout of the restaurant was really nice. The front and back of the restaurant beaing completely open meant we enjoyed a gentle breeze whilst eating, and could overlook the garden at the back of the restaurant. Imagine it would be quite atmospheric in wet season.
It's a bit tricky to get to, being a few kilometres out of the nearest tourist centres, but worth the effort. It's a little further south on Jl Sunset Road than indicated on the Happy Cow Google Map, but it's fairly difficult to miss. Keep an eye out for the huge Carrefour shopping centre - it's a couple of hundred metres north of that on the same side of the road.
Would be great to see these guys do well.
Huge Variety, Picture Menu, Friendly Staff
