Sup Dermaga – Bandeng Cabut Duri IDR 19k/ ounce
This is one of the signature seafood dishes from Makassar, Palumara soup, a turmeric based soup with fish. For the fish, we had ‘Bandeng Cabut Duri’ or boneless bandeng/milkfish, the soup tasted very refreshing with tangy savory flavor. It was a very appetizing dish, the fish itself was very tender, smooth and flavorful. Love it!

Pepes Bandeng Cabut Duri IDR 19k/ ounce
‘Bandeng Cabut Duri’ or boneless bandeng/milkfish seasoned with various ingredients and wrapped in banana leaves. Fish was very tender and seasoning was fully absorbed into the fish, we can taste a bit of spiciness from the use of chili and a bit of tanginess from the use of green tomatoes, the use of banana leaves added a nice appetizing aroma to the fish.
Kepiting Saos Lada Hitam
The crab was definitely fresh and very meaty, it was packed with flavor, very juicy, tender, smooth and sweet altogether. The black pepper seasoning was also superb, very rich, bold and hot at the same time.
Ikan Kudu Kudu Goreng Telur Asin IDR 22k/ ounce
Kudu-Kudu fish is one of the signature fish that you can find normally in Makassar seafood restaurant, it is one of our favorite fish to order, usually we have it deep fried. In Dermaga Makassar, you can have the Kudu-Kudu fish grilled, deep fried or deep fried with salted egg sauce, we ordered the salted egg version. This dish was demolished in no time because it was so sooooo good! Fresh Kudu-Kudu fish fillet deep fried until golden crispy and then coated with addicting rich savory golden salted egg sauce, definitely a must try!
After spicy hot and flavorful seafood dishes, Coconut Pudding is the best ending. The pudding has a silky smooth jiggly texture with refreshing sweetness from coconut juice, love it!
Overall, seafood was very fresh, seasoning was spot on with lots of variety, we had a very satisfying seafood meal there. AnakJajan honestly think that Dermaga Makassar is definitely one of the best places in Jabodetabek for fresh and live seafood. Let’s Jajan!!
