Tucked in among the diverse range of eateries along Upper Thomson Road, it’s easy enough to miss RS Deli – but this new restaurant (the modern white and red interior resembles more hip café than classic Indonesian eatery) has garnered a loyal following, thanks to their fusion cuisine and affordable prices. Head chef Derwin Jamin, alongside business partner and former schoolmate Jimmy Foo, churns out traditional Indonesian fare done with a Western twist, such as the nasi lemak burger ($8.90), a fried egg and crispy chicken thigh sandwiched between bento rice patties, satay chicken ($9) and beef rendang burgers ($10) – classic renditions, sauce and all – tucked into bread buns served with fries and coleslaw. Another unique dish is the kampong spaghetti ($5.90), a twist on the popular Javanese mee goreng that uses spaghetti rather than the usual yellow noodles. Also check out their cookies and cakes that are sold all-year round – Jamin’s mum is the face behind famous Jakarta-based bakery Rasa Sayang, which first started selling hand-made kueh lapis and snacks here back in 1998.
