Jakarta Restaurant #2


2 weeks ago, SC & I stopped at RM Puas located near jl. Panjang, the restaurant specialty are martabak, roti jala & kare, they also served 'nasi kebuli' (lamb / chicken). After studied the menu (the food here mainly have Arabic & Betawi influence), we ordered : 'nasi kebuli kambing' (arabic style rice cooked with a lot of spices, usually derved with dried lamb meat) : about 17K, 'roti jala with kare kambing' 10K, 'roti canai' ( Indian's bread cooked on a flat iron skillet with a lot of oil) 3K , sambosa (the taste and appearance looks a lot like samosa) 2K, all of that + drinks cost us about 32K if I'm not mistaken, very reasonable price right? and what I love is the kare kambing & kebuli turn out so delicious :)

[2] Sarang Kepiting

We went here for late dinner last week, located at jl. Gunung Sahari opposite to 'mangga 2 square building', very crowded at night. From the restaurant name, you can already guess what is the specialty here : 'Kepiting' (crab), so we ordered : 'kepiting saos padang', 'kepiting lada hitam', 'kepiting soka balut telor asin', 'kerang rebus' & 1 portion of 'kangkung'. for rice you can choose between 'nasi putih' or 'nasi uduk'. In my opinion overall the taste of the food was not bad (this is my first visit), but according to my friend who always came here whenever they craved for crab, the taste was not as good as before.


[3] Ayam Tulang Lunak Hayam Wuruk

We have dinner at this place several weeks ago, from the restaurant name, we can already guess what is their specialty : 'ayam tulang lunak' (the chicken was cooked in high pressure cooker until the bones were soft and eatable). so here is what we ordered : 'ayam presto telur asin' ( 13.5K/pcs), 'bebek presto goreng crispy' (12K/pcs), & 'plecing kangkung' (8.5K). overall the food was not bad, the chicken bones were soft & delicious. but the duck bones was not eatable (although they said its a bebek presto). :P

[4] Ajengan

Last week we got an invitation for birthday dinner held at 'Ajengan restaurant'. located near melawai / blok M. >From the moment we entered this place, I just love it. I like the inner garden in Balinese style, the entrance, foyer & the ambience of this place, so homy & cozy. They served an authentic Balinese Cuisine, and I bet the food will be as good as the place. :)

So here's what we had that night : for appetizer we started with : some kind of Balinese nuts, a bowl of 'rujak kuah pindang' (mango and kedondong fruit salad with pungent dressing mixed with fish broth) 10K, 'Rujak Bancih' (Unripe papaya and bangkuang fruit salad with Bali fermented palm wine vinegar) 10K and 'Tahu Gianjar' (tofu/soybean curd prepared with chili) 12.5K.

[5] RM Galung

We went to 'RM. Galung' for lunch last weekend. This restaurant served an authentic food of Pematang Siantar : Nasi Galung (which is kind of 'nasi rames/nasi padang ' from North Sumatra ). I guess the meal had Malay influence but tasted hotter and spicier. Some of their speciality is 'Ikan Pari Goreng', 'Ikan Mayong', 'Gulai Kepala Ikan'. 'Sop Sapi' . I tried their 'miso ayam' (Medanese chicken noodle soup) too, and it was really delicious especially if you eat it with a glass of cold 'liang teh' or 'jus terong belanda' or 'markisa'. I used to have this kind of 'nasi' back in my home town but never know that it was called 'Nasi Galung' untill now. :)

[6] Woku Woku

I tried this restaurant called 'woku woku' at mall artha gading 2 weeks ago. the restaurant served Manado food: all cooked in woku style, we ordered 'cumi woku belanga' 22.5K, 'Tumis Kangkung Bunga Pepaya' 12K, and 'Perkedel Jagung' 6K. overall the taste was quite delicious, reasonable price. but not as hot / spicy as I want.

[7] Bakmi Kumango

After we read from Ice's comment here that there's one 'Bakmi Kumango' opened in Jakarta, me and SC start on a search to greenville, the first time we went on the afternoon and couldn't found it, later we found out that the place was close at night. So we came again on weekend for lunch and this time we found it. So we ordered 2 portion of 'Bakmi Kumago'. it was OK, but I think it tasted not quite the same with the one I had in Medan .

[8] Ayam Bakar Taliwang
Last week we found this small & delicious 'kaki lima ' cafe near 'RM. Nasi Gandul' Pesanggrahan that served : 'Ayam Bakar Taliwang' (Lombok/Sumbawa authentic cuisine) . So we (I) had dinner there and ordered : 'ayam bakar taliwang' (grilled wild young chicken with Lombok 's style chilli sauce) with a portion of 'pelecing kangkung' (Cooked fresh water spinach (kangkung), mixed with a sauce made with chilli, fish paste/terasi, tomato salt and lime). both are very hot and spicy. So if you can't stand spicy food better not risk yourself to try it :) Besides 'pelecing kangkung' and 'ayam taliwang' they also served 'beberok terong' (cooked eggplant with fresh chopped onion and chili sauce).

[9] Warung Solo
I've been visited this place 2 weeks in a row, its a 'kaki lima ' place located near ' RM Nasi Gandul' Pesanggrahan, opened every afternoon. served mostly Solo/ Javanese food such as : 'Gudeng', 'Nasi Liwet', 'Garang Asem', 'Soto Ayam', etc. I already try their 'Nasi Liwet', 'Garang Asem' and 'Soto Ayam'. all of it were so delicious and came with a very reasonable price too :)


[10] Bopet Mini

We had breakfast here last weekend, it was a Padang Restaurant located at the 'Bendungan Hillir' traditional market. I think they served quite authentic Padang cuisine such as : 'bubur kampiun', 'pecel padang ', 'ketupat sayur', 'soto padang '. I reconized that the 'rendang' served here contained some 'kacang merah' which I never found in all the Padang restaurent I had ever been to. :)

[11] RM Sari Sanjaya

We stopped by 'Rumah Makan Sari Sanjaya' Kelapa Gading for dinner 2 weeks ago. This restaurant served quite authentic Palembang Food such as : various kind of Pempek ( Kapal Selam, Pistel, Tahu, Adaan, Lenjer, Kulit, Dos, Tunu, Lenggang Bakar), Pindang (ikan belida, patin, baung, gabus, lais, sale, udang satang, cumi, tulang iga), Martabak ( Martabak kai, kentang & Ubi, various Palembang autentic dishes ( Burgo, Laksan, Lakso, Mie Celor Santan, Mie Celor Bening, Celimpungan ) & various palembang traditional cakes (8jam, kojo, srikaya, maksuba, bugis, jongkong, ketan duren, etc). We ordered : Burgo 10K, Mie Celor 10K and 'Ketan Duren' for dessert. The food tasted delicious although the 'Ketan Duren' tasted too sweet. we'll be back if we have a chance to try their other specialities :)

[12] Meutia Masakan Aceh

Last week I had lunch at Meutia Restaurant located at Bendungan Hillir. actually I prefer to eat at Seulawah than this place, but since Seulawah have moved to Tanah Abang, We went here instead. This restaurant served Acehnese cuisine, very crowded at lunch time. they served the all food in small plate just like ' Padang ' style, and you pay only what you eat.

One of Meutia's signature dish that they are so proud of is 'Ayam Tsunami'. they said this was their original dish. actually this is 'Ayam Tangkap' (Aceh Traditional Dish : crispy fried spicy chicken with temuruy/curry leaves, it's so crispy even the leaves are like crackers) 25K. I just don't understand why they had to renamed Aceh original dish after a tragedy *sigh*. and there's also one dish they called 'sambal ganja' but it actually is 'asam udang' :(

Other than that actually the dish here were quite good, although not as authentic as 'Seulawah'. If you were here you might want to try : 'Kari Bebek' and drink 'Jus Timun Kerok' they also sell several Aceh tradiitional cake such as 'Kue Timphan', 'Kue Jala' , 'Kue Pulut Bakar' & 'Kue Bingka'.

[13] Nasi Campur Bali

I had 'Nasi Campur Bali'/ Balinese mixed rice (steamed rice served with mixture of lawar nangka, tum babi, pork satay, etc) 10K at Pure Cinere courtyard last weekend, I also bought 'nasi Jenggo' ( steamed rice served with noodles, fried nuts, shredded shicken and sambal, wrapped in banana leaf). In my oppinion the food was quite authentic, to bad they don't serve 'Babi Guling' (a spit-roasted whole pig stuffed with a delicious mix of herbs and spices) when we came. :P


[14] Nasi Gandul

Last week, after visiting some friends at the hospital, we decided to have dinner at Pesanggrahan. Since its already late, I only want something light for dinner, so we didn't looking for some fancy looking restaurant and just look for street food instead. We stopped by a small warung called 'Rumah Makan Nasi Gandul, masakan khas Pati Jateng'. my first experience with 'Nasi Gandul' was at 'spice garden' Sogo foodcourt which was quite expensive & tasted so so. So we ordered 1 portion of 'Nasi Gandul Campur' & 1 portion of 'Nasi Ayam khas Semarang '. On the table there's a display of various 'jerohan', perkedel, bakwan jagung, tahu, tempe , tempe bacem etc to choose to accompanied our meal. Overall our ordered tonight taste much much more delicious than the one we had at Spice Garden & very reasonable price too. We will be back there soon to try another menu like : 'Nasi Pindang', 'Tahu Telor', 'Soto Ayam Kemiri', Mangut etc.. (nyam nyam bgt deh pokoknya) :)

[18] Bihun Kari Ayam Tabona

Last weekend, before going to 'ya-udah' bistro , SC & I were heading to Pluit to try 'Bihun Kari Ayam' Tabona. I had tasted its original 'bihun kari ayam' in Medan a couple of months ago. When we heard that there's is a restaurant called Tabona in Pluit, we decided to give it a try.

So we ordered 'Bihun Kari Ayam' 21K with a glass of ' sirop terong belanda' 11K, the taste was actually not bad, but SC reckons that the price was not worth it and he prefer Bihun Kari Ayam we had at RM Kosasih - pasar muara karang . Moreover, the curry is not as rich as the original version in Medan .

[19] Ayam Goreng Single Borobudur

This place was very recommended by SC, he took me there last weekend for dinner :) its located on 'Kaki Lima' not far from Sunter Mall, there's lots of interesting food stall there. I notice that most of it were from Pontianak food. Ayam Goreng Single Borobudur offer their delicious and crispy fried chicken, plus other gorengan like : tempe goreng, tempe bacem, tahu goreng, usus goreng (one of their speciality) served with a plate of kremesan ayam, nasi uduk plus a very hot sambal terasi.

[20] Bebek Goreng Joko Putro

I always love to have duck for my meal as an alternative for chicken. Among my favorite there were ' bihun bebek binjai' - pasar muara karang , peking duck - the duck king, Bebek Goreng Suryo. A couple of week ago with some friends I tried this one, located in kakilima, the banner outside said : ' Joko Putro : Nasi Uduk, Bebek Goreng, Ayam Goreng, Pecel Ayam/Lele ...' so we ordered 'Bebek Goreng' with a plate of ' Nasi uduk'. the service was quite fast & clean. the taste not bad, the meal came with lalapan & sambal terasi dadakan . Compared to other 'bebek Goreng' from its class, but I think I like 'Begor Suryo' better than this one.

[24] Begor Suryo

I had Begor for lunch at Pondok Surgo Restaurant with some friends a few weeks ago, this place was famous for its Surabaya's Bebek Goreng (deep fried duck cooked in Surabaya's style) although they also served Chinese food, We ordered : 1 Bebek Goreng (4 pieces) 55K, Nasi 1 Bakul 15K, Jus Alpukat 12K, Jus Sirsak 11K, Es Calamansi 13K and Es Jeruk Nipis 11K. The begor was delicious, served with 2 types of sambal & 1 special sauce for Begor. Usually I prefer duck cooked in chinese style, but this one was an exception. I guess the duck was marinated in special sauce before frying it. and the result is the meat was tender & juicy inside but crispy out side. Very recommended deh :)

[25] Sate Khas Senayan

Last week we visited 'Sate Khas Senayan' located at Jl. Pakubuwono VI. Sate House Senayan served quite authentic Indonesian cuisine or maybe Javanese cuisine, the restaurant was separated between smoking & non smoking area, warm ambiance .. I think this kind of restaurant was suitable for friends/family gathering.

That night we ordered : Appetizer Sampler ( Sosis Solo, Risoles, Tahu Kipas, Rambak Petis) 34K/2Pax, Tahu Telur (fried bean-curd omelet) 14K, Gado Gado (vegetables with peanut sauce) 12K, Sate Kambing (Lamb Satay) 22K, Kambing Buntel (grilled minced lamb) 15K, Sate Manis Sapi (sweet beef satay) 24K, Sate Ayam (chicken satay) 16K and Cumi Telor Bakar (barbeque stuffed squid) 35K. In my opinion all the food was delicious, I especially like ' Tahu Telor', its a 'die die must try' dish every time I visit this place :)
