Editorial Review

Its everyone for themselves! When you enter Wiro Sableng especially for dinner on the weekends, please DO NOT wait or expect to be seated. This place is a battlefield my friend! In order to find a seat, you will have to maneuver quickly through the frenzy of customers and waiters or risk waiting quite awhile for your chance to get your hands on one of the best barbequed seafood that Kelapa Gading has to offer.

It’s unimaginable that this place started off with a small tent with plastic chairs and tables outdoors. Now a two storey ruko (shop house) building with a seating capacity for at least 300 is packed daily with almost a hundred people waiting anxiously to get “down and dirty”. Its chaotic once you're there and the countless waiters are always on the move either cleaning up to prepare for the next batch of hungry mouths or serving those lucky ones already seated.

Typically in a place like Wiro Sableng, people already know what the specials are without even looking at the menu. From the 360 degree panoramic view of the restaurant alone, you will notice that almost everyone is eating the same type of dishes and we were tempted to familiarize ourselves to the max with these so called specials to see what the fuss was all about. So let the ordering begin, which essentially was just an act of pointing out food on other people's tables. Quite rude but practical. Monster Crabs and BBQ fish, especially Ikan kue as a preference for the type of fish are both an absolute must, and to add to that throw in some Fried Calamari Rings, Stir Fried Kangkung / kangKung Tumis (water spinach) and a portion of BBQ Shellfish. The only reason to look at the menu is to choose how you want your dish to be prepared, using either one of the following sauces: Padang, Garlic, Oyster or chilli. We highly recommend their female Crab dish served in oyster sauce, the tender orange roe and the juicy crab meat goes very well with the savory oyster sauce. Their green mussels are equally delicious and served fresh. The absolute favorite however would have to be the barbequed fish with its soft meat and char grilled after taste just makes your mouth water before and after the first bite.

It was a feast for at least 5! Well we were two people shy of that but I guess you could say we were really really hungry and the food was really really good. Lets also not forget to mention the unexpected cheap price tab. Perfect for seafood fans and absolutely worth the drive.

    Pros: Rasanya enak dan pas
    Cons: Tempatnya kotor dan bau asap
    Untuk makanan nilainya 5/5. Kerang Ijo Saos Padang, Kepiting, Udang Bakar, dll semuanya enak.

    Hanya saja susah cari parkir, dan tempatnya agak kotor.
    Kalau di lt 1 bisa kena asap, lebih baik makan di lt 2.
    Hati-hati kalau Sabtu/Minggu bisa penuh.
