We were so lucky to find Marubas on our first night on Samosir Island. Ita
Is a fantastic chef. Everything we ordered was prepared fresh to order. The first night, we were able to see a beautiful lightning storm from her restaurant. We ordered so much food: pad Thai, sambul Tempe, green salad...everything we ordered was out of this world delicious. The next day, we ate light all day and pre-ordered a kilo of lobsters for dinner. The lobsters were to die for. She brought them out live and then went back to the kitchen to work her magic. We had salad and fresh juice while we waited. She brought out the lobsters, she had grilled them and put a special sauce on... We could not stop eating them. They were SO good. I cannot recommend this place any more, it is just a beautiful experience eating at Marubas. Nice family, great ( but very basic) ambiance, and obviously, great food. So far, the lobsters are the best meal I've had in Indonesia. Go here next time you are on Samosir, you will thank me later!
