Lunch at Indonesian street food restaurant

May 8, 2019

Aldershot is a town most people avoid.

it is easy to see why, boarded-up shops, streets deserted, utter desolation. The result of decades of bad town centre planning by the local council.

There is though one reason to visit, lunch at Indonesian street food restaurant in Upper Union Street.

That was where I was heading.

Excellent Ayam Woku.

I was not the only one.

Three very attractive Indonesian women, who had travelled from Southampton, such the reputation the restaurant has.

I had one dish. When one dish arrived, |I thought that was their meal. No, more dishes arrived until their table resembled a mini-banquet.

This is how street food should be, not the rubbish served at Chow Down in Lincoln Castle or the travelling street food circus a few weeks earlier in the High Street.

Not only street food, this is how food should be street food or restaurant.

Simple food, tasty, no PR bullshit, no gimmicks, just quality ingredients, quality cooking.

Whilst I was there a man came in claiming to be from Google, or maybe giving the illusion he was from Google, he was wearing a Google jacket, claiming they needed to be on Google Maps.

They are already on Google Maps.

I suspected scam.

Lunch at Waroeng Windsor Indonesian street food

December 14, 2017

The shop front has been changed at local council expense, to look Victorian, only it does not.

I had looked in yesterday, no Ayam Woku. We will have tomorrow.

I look today, no Ayam Woku.

It is suggested I try Ayam Bakar Paniki, chicken with bones.

As I learn when served, what they meant was a leg of chicken. This I explained.

The leg of chicken was slightly under cooked. This too I explained, that they must cook for a little longer.

Quibbles apart, as always excellent lunch at Waroeng Windsor.

Aldershot  is infamous for its disgusting junk food, closed boarded up shops, a place of desolation, where even the Pound Shops pull out.  Waroeng Windsor is a rare exception of somewhere worth eating in Aldershot and making a trip for.
