Dear friends,

If you have missed out Kue Lapis Anggrek Mas in Batam, you may try it next time when you come to batam, it's homemade and only bake when there is order so freshness is guaranted and also can deliver your order to the hotel you stay. You can check out the fb : kuelapisanggrekmas@gmail.com.

Best regards,

I visited Starmoon Cakes & Cookies & tried the two Kuih Lapis available ( Pandan & Original) . Of the 2, the Pandan version seems nicer . They cost around IDR280,000 each. I also sampled the one at Batam City Square(BCS) and found the texture too oily for my taste.

The ones selling at the BCS Hypermart seems to be more reasonable priced but I can't really attest to the taste.

Not sure where the location of the Starmoon shop/factory was as I was following a tour. Hope this helps

Never heard of Starmoon... so can't say anything about it... when I have tried it I will post my comment here.

And there is no Hypermart in BCS.

I think PFogg2013 is referring to the JC Supermarket in BCS :)

Hi Folks,

Maybe not many of you've heard about Catarina Cakes. Its a local authentic traditional cake shop in Batam, located in downtown Nagoya since 1998. They have more than 50 varieties of original traditional Indonesian cakes, and their kue Lapis is among the most authentic and freshest in town.

The premier whole cake will price around S$25 to S$35, based on size and variations.

This local cake shop never advertise on tour agents (maybe because they believe quality over quantity, and not many people believe the tour agents reccomendation, since they tend to have commision in volumes and hence you'll got mass-produced product at high price). You'll know it when you're there.

Here is the address:

Komp. Bumi Indah C-7,

Nagoya, Batam

(+62778)425621

They also have a facebook page in www.facebook.com/catarinacakesbatam

It is walkable from Nagoya Hill, just cross the street to Holiday Hotel, and the shop is just behind the Hotel. Locals should know when you mention Catarina Cakes.

PS: when you're there, ask them to fry a freshly made risoles called Catarizol. It is the best!
