Hey, i love jakarta.. Love the ppls love the place and specially the foods
Time lapse token this morning from apartment
Lunch at this Indonesian restaurant in Serpong
Best freshly made sambal
Fresh chili + white sugar + balacan + lime
Done very traditional way
(sorry photo blur)
Chicken satay chunky meat with peanut sauce and sweet sauce very nice
Kangkon balacan is very thin, soft yet crunchy think cannot be found in Singapore and Thailand
Gram bakar or Tilapia bbq
Beef rib soup, very rich beef taste
Why latest photos not as sharp?
Have to agree with you. Need to improve my skill. Using same camera guess its the problem with my skill.
Back to Jakarta for a few days had a great and cheap seafood meal. Everything super fresh because the fish port is just a stone throw from the restaurant:
Front of the restaurant
Inside is full so got to have meal outside
Sweet boiled prawn
Brinjal with sambal
Bean sprout with salted fish
Small bamboo clams with tau-jiu
Grilled ikan kueh with green sambal
Live grouper with cumin sauce - the signature dish its a little like thai taste as its sour and delicious
Another highlight - crab grilled in banana leaves
Marinated with ginger and other herbs, very fragrant and tasty
This meal costs only 1.05mil IDR or S$100
Name of the restaurant Aroma Sop
Last night went to an open air street food place in north Jakarta
This is like our ngor hiang guan qiang
Pohpiah - Singapore's better, more moist inside this Jakarta version looks like ours but a little dry inside
Soto sapi - this is damn shiok like our mutton soup
Pork satay - very very delicious, meat is chunky and well marinated
Overall this street food was good but not cheap when compared to Bangkok's street food.
holy shit. that's a lot of food consumption. is your shit ok?
No problem buddy I feed coffee into the other orifice
yes, all 3 sections of the colon are absorbent in whatever stays there. it's advisable to clear bowels frequently as constipated shit can be reabsorbed into organs and body and turn toxic.
Had breakfast with my good Muslim driver this morning.
Hot teh tarik
He had salted fish fried rice - nasi goreng ikan asin
I had prawn beehoon
Food in Jakarta don't come cheap $12 for this meal - tsk tsk tsk
Lunch at a Nasi Padang restaurant, this is not those traditional ones where every dish is served on your desk, you chose and they serve like our chap chye png. Owner is Chinese but no pork in restaurant still this is not halal however you still see muslims come to eat. Many Indonesian muslims are not so anal about the halal thing.
Highlight is their fried chicken, all made fresh when ordered.
Some of the highlights, very think egg
Longtong cabbage curry
Brinjal, long bean and ikan bilis
The fried chicken - super delicious especially the crisps
Check out they generously give the crisps
