A short getaway in Batam Island (Day 2)

A short getaway in Batam Island (Day 2)


A week rockets by so fast, foodandholiday is here again to say Happy Tuesday, everyone! 

In continuation of this post, we are back here again with the rest of our (food and non food) pics in Batam. 
We are sorry if it sounds bored to you, but we are doing our best to make this post as light as possible. Hehee.. 

The day was started with breakfast in Biz Hotel's 11th floor open-air rooftop.
The view from the 11th floor was simply amazing and we did love the al-fresco atmosphere, but the wind was too strong that we could hardly enjoy our food. 
The buffet stations were setup under the roof and the tables were placed in every corner under and outside the roof.

Food selection was not a lot, we had fruits, noodle soup, porridge, and green bean soup. 
Food taste was moderate and was not as expected, but fulfilling enough. But they cooked very good chicken curry which we had quite a lot. More than the delicious chicken curry (not in the pic) and the picturesque landscape of the town from the 11th floor, the staffs too were very nice and accommodating.

We spent like 30 mins up there and purposely left the tummy half full, quickly stomped back to the room for this RICE DUMPLING we brought all the way from Medan! (See pic below) 
Lugged these bazhang all the way from Medan to Batam wasn't an easy task, but the idea of enjoying them in the room was very hard to resist :p 
Look at how tempting the rice dumplings were! Everything wrapped inside the bamboo leaves was so delicious, we can't get enough of it. Mission accomplished! LOL!

There's no doubt that this trip is a food trip. We did nothing but EAT. 
Lunch time was approaching and as planned before, we went back to Love Seafood Restaurant and pigged out on seafood again for lunch. 
Although Love Seafood is located a fair bit distance from the city, but we LOVE driving out there and enjoyed one of the most charming scenery of Batam like this! Don't you guys agree with us?

Likewise with Sumber Rezeki Restaurant, the tables and chairs here were also put at the patio above the seashore. This place is obviously more spacious and could cater more people not only the local, but the tourists as well. Too bad, the weather was equally hot on our 2nd day.

Throw back to our first time when we were there, it was so memorable and mind-blowing. So was this time around. 
If you don't trust us, pls take a look at the seafood spread below! 
And if this doesn't tempt you enough, LOOK again! LOL.
Deep fried fish, garlic scallops, stir-fry vegetables, garlic fried chicken and buttered prawn. 
(Note : This post is not showing the price of each dish as we somehow forgot to take away the bill with us)

I kid you not, they have the most delicious garlic scallops in the world! We ordered 2 portions and still feel that it wasn't enough. The garlic scallops alone worth our trip up there. They were so so good, so smooth and so buttery!

Next on, garlic fried chicken made its appearance again LOL!  
Can't think of other more interesting things to say, this chicken deserves only the word, "DELICIOUS".

Unlike our Medan style buttered prawn, this Batam version was a bit similar to our cereal prawn which the prawns were like coated by cereal flakes. Taste wise was only average and the prawns size was small too. Not our favorite though.

Another seafood feast was completed, means that another craving was satisfied. 
But this is not the end of the day YET, we still have another food pictures to be put up here in our next post! 

Bye for now and see you again soon :)
