[Food Review] Rakshee @ The Strand Kota Damansara



Petaling Jaya, December 2015 – A few weeks ago, I have attended a food review session under Food Ink and it was a great one featuring Bakso as their main signatures. The restaurant is Rakshee which is located at The Strand, Kota Damansara.

Event: Rakshee Food Review
Venue: Rakshee
No 13G, Jalan 5/20A, The Strand Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya, 46350 Selangor. 
Remark: They serve beef.

Rakshee has been operating close to a year by young entrepreneurs of different background including Oil & Gas and F&B.

One of the founders, the uncle owns a Bakso factory in Penang for more than 13 years. Rakshee is part of the strategy to boost the production of the factory and part of the plan to bring this Indonesia street food to another level.



Just in case you do not know yet, Bakso is a kind of meatball made from beef that is commonly consumed in Indonesia. What makes Bakso to be distinct from a typical meatball?

Bakso uses more lean meat than fats. Rakshee’s menu is fully created by their in-house chef. There is one prerequisite for every new dish, that is, to include Bakso into it. Apart from serving Bakso with beef soup, they even have Pasta with Bakso instead of using normal Italian meatball. All their Bakso is sourced from the uncle’s factory. This idea aims to make Rakshee a Bakso themed restaurant and make us link Bakso-related savoury to the name of Rakshee.

What does Rakshee means? Rakshee is derived from an informal Arabic language and it means joyful and relaxation. With its wide range of Bakso delicacies and modernized hipster-like based design, the place no doubt can make the customers feel joyful and relaxed.

The café has attracted different kind of patrons from the west Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. Rakshee has ready-investors for expanding another outlet at Setiawangsa probably in a year time.

Rakshee’s mission is to educate people about the new way of eating Bakso. More exciting menu will be added along the way with promotion. For more Bakso greatness, do follow their Instagram.
