Seattle is well-known for its excellent seafood.  Ray’s Boathouse is  one of those restaurants that offer  ultimate seafood experience and breathtaking  waterfront view of Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains, especially when the sun is setting and the boats are coming home through the Ballard Lock.

Jun Njan: Always Remember The Roots

To break the last day of fasting, I, Maga, Junior, Meina & Widya went to Jun Njan Seafood Restaurant at Gandaria City.  The place was rather packed with families missing their maids who had gone home to their villages for “Lebaran”.  In spite of the long wait for the food to be served, and the absent of garnishes, the food remained delicious as usual.  The oyster sauced crab was still the best.  So was the hot and salted fried squit.  The third generation who managed several Jun Njan restaurants seemed doing very well in maintaining the old recipes and family’s value of  Always Remember the Roots.

Kampoeng Bangka: Pas di Lidah

Pengalamanku tentang masakan Bangka sebenarnya hanya sebatas mie Bangka dan Martabak Bangka.  Jadi kunjungan ke Kampoeng Bangka ini penting untuk pembelajaran mengenai kuliner Pulau Bangka.  Tidak banyak yang kuharapkan saat masuk ke restoran ini.  Eh, ternyata makanannya sangat khas dan sesuai dengan lidah.  Lempah Iga Daun Dondongnya mampu untuk menggugah selera.  Porsinya kecil, pas  untuk bersantap 2 orang.

Saung Grenvil: As Yummy as Those Offered by Street Vendors

The most delicious Indonesian seafood is actually those offered by street vendors such as those along Jalan Pecenongan and Gunung Sahari in Jakarta.  If you don’t mind the dust, the fumes, the humidity and the smell,  along-the-street food-courts can be a fun place to hang out.  But if you prefer a clean, air-conditioned room, go to Saung Grenvil at Jl. Wahid Hasyim instead.

Pelem Golek: Pondok Makan di Yogya Utara

Pada waktu memesan Sapi Mongolia, saya pikir yang akan disajikan adalah sapi ala Mongolian grill yang kering.  Ternyata yang keluar adalah Sapi Mongolia khas Pelem Golek yang sedikit berkuah dan disajikan di atas pepaya matang yang manis.  Rasa yang tercipta adalah rasa nano-nano … asam, manis dan pedas.  Sapi Mongolia merupakan salah satu signature dish nya Pelem Golek, restauran  yang sebenarnya lebih mengkhususkan pada ikan.

My Personal Notes:

If your order exceeding Rp 1.000.000,- you  will get free Peking Duck and desert for all the members of your party.

You better check the prices before you order.  The waiters have the tendency to offer their rare fish or expensive  menus
