Es Teler is a type of cold drink that consists of fresh fruits – jackfruit, avocado and coconut, with a special syrup mix that makes the drink superbly enjoyable and delicious. Es Teler 77 continues to grow by serving high quality food and drink products with original recipe to customers all around Indonesia and abroad by introduceing Indonesian delicacy to other countries.
Was the food value for money? Definitely. The grilled chicken rice is similar to the one sold at the famous Indonesian stall at Plaza Singapura, but this one is a lot less overrated and overpriced for sure. Both tastes similar to each other, but I prefer this one simply because of the chilli.
Located at a quiet corner at Far East Plaza, this place attracts very few customers even during lunch/dinner time, which could be seen as a good thing for me since I hate having to wait a long time for my food. However, the last time I visited Far East Plaza, I couldn't find this eatery anymore... I'm guessing they've moved out due to the high rent and the fact that they just weren't attracting enough customers. If I remember correctly, they do have another outlet at City Plaza at Paya Lebar though, so I might just pay them a visit there the next time to have my favourite happy soda again!
My first impression of it is pretty much like other Indonesian eatery - homely.
The variety wasn’t a lot to choose from so we both ordered their minced chicken noodles. It was just a small serving of noodles with minced chicken and it feels like it could be prepared in seconds, which I think was the case. It was also a little salty for both of us and you might want to request for less salt if it’s possible. The good thing about it is their affordable price. A bowl of noodles and a cup of tea only cost you $6, in Orchard.
Unless I can find more halal restaurants or eatery in Orchard, I would definitely still go back with my Malay friends to try some of their other dishes. Perhaps to see if their es teler is as bad as what others said.
I had my first and last experience of eating this es teler in its outlet at Cineleisure Orchard.
The serving of each es teler is quite big, but don't be deceived by its quantity; to me, the quality is much more important. Here is what caused my dismay; the amounts of grass jelly, avocado and other fruits are so little and the syrup tasted way too sweet. Worse, the amount of shredded is just way too much that it looked more like ice kachang than es teler.
Obviously, I did not finish it and the price is quite expensive too. I was greatly disappointed at the es teler that I had. Before I visited this stall,I still expected a good treat of es teler with generous amount of grass jelly, fruits and the good syrup that a proper es teler should have.
I am definitely never going back to this stall because I would not want to be served another bowl of shredded ice. Once is enough.
It is just a normal outdoor restaurant that serves authentic Indonesian food. I had Special Fried Rice and Avocado Milkshake. I like the special fried rice because it tasted different from normal fried rice. It is spicy but sadly, the ingredients such as prawns and squids and chickens, are very little. I think there are about two or three of them each. It is overloaded with rice but overall the taste is good. The most disappointed issue is the Avocado Milkshake. I could hardly taste the Avocado. It was mostly filled with milk, more like condensed milk. I told them that I couldn’t taste the Avocado. I was surprised to see their response. They said it is natural for Avocado to taste bitter. I told them I can only taste the condensed milk, it is not even sweet enough. All they did was to change the drink and add more syrup to it. I was very disappointed and left the place with the new drink barely half.
