My Indonesian friends here knew about my visit to Jakarta. Their common recommendation to me was that I have to try the food as for Indonesian themselves, Jakarta is a food heaven.
So, in my head all the way was always to use that opportunity to experience how heaven it could be :P
Well, the problem was, I don`t know where to start. Furthermore, my husband has this principle; `you tak jab thyphoid, so, we will only do fine dining -__-`.
Actually senang sangat you all nak indulge in their authentic cuisine. There are everywhere in the form of stall..I have to say, almost all spaces available are occupied by the hawkers selling (trust me) salivating Indonesian food. But, I could`t due to hubby`s amanah to me>.<
What we did, before we leave the hotel to get taxi, we asked the hotel person their recommendation. I insisted, it must be Indonesian food>.< So far, my favourite was Sunda.
|Makanan Indonesia banyaknya digoreng seperti di atas ini. Picture shows sunda food selection (part of it)|
|Sunda food restaurant in Cikini, Jakarta. Ambiance.|
|Sayurnya pula dalam bentuk ulam-ulaman..I was at first did`t get the difference between Sunda and the others. My frined (Indonesian) told me Sunda has their special sambal (green color)..and I was like `ohh...ye..sedap!`|
|Kesian..balik kerja kene entertain wife yang sedang dalam misi mengembara mencari Food Heaven >.<|
|Because this restaurant brings good memories for us:) Bumbu Desa, we will definitely meet again:)|
And yeah..trust me..the price sangat sangat sangat sangat sangat sangat sangat sangat sangat murah!!!!(bayangkan kalau makan dekat stall or canteen o_O OMG!)
Just tell taxi driver, Bumbu Desa di Cikini kalau anda di Jakarta nanti ya! ^_^
Later!(fetching my just baked cookies :D)
