Craving Some Foods

I’m not a big fan of any coconut milk base dishes, but nowadays, there are three dishes that I’m craving for; Lontong Orari in Banjarmasin, Lontong Sayur Uda Pero in Bandung, and Ketupat Kandangan in Satui. Those are all my fatty craving. Lontong Orari Banjarmasin Pressed rice cake served with jackfruit in coconut milk. I found about the popularity of Lontong Orari in Banjarmasin about three weeks ago, when I was getting my one day off. Its popularity has been spread all over social media long before I know it (what a missed). Lontong Orari maybe not much different from … Continue reading Craving Some Foods

Breakfast/Brunch at Warung Taru, Bandung

Yeah, it’s weekend. Speaking of weekend, there is a place that likes crossing my mind on each weekend, Warung Taru in Bandung. Warung Taru is one of my favorite places for having breakfast or brunch when I’m in the city, especially on the weekends. It has special feeling on the weekends for I love spending time there with my friends who are mostly free on those times of week. I love everything while I’m at Warung Taru; I love the wooden dominated furnitures and ornaments, I love the view, I love its tasteful foods, and I also love the affordable … Continue reading Breakfast/Brunch at Warung Taru, Bandung

My Home Best Trait; Burak

Ah, remembered about mom, I also could not get away the meals she often made for us. Burak Duku’ Manuk (Steamed of banana’s stem with organic chicken) I’m craving this meal the most. This is special dish from Toraja, which basic ingredient is the core part of banana’s stem. It goes well with organic chicken from my dad’s farm. LOL. Even though most of people from Toraja (especially who live there) know how to make it, I haven’t met one who could make it the way my mom did. Since the stem of Banana is succulent, it needs a kind … Continue reading My Home Best Trait; Burak

Foods for Field Break; South Borneo

Yeay, I’m having my field break tomorrow. When the field break is coming, my food list is coming as well. I don’t even realize why and when exactly that becomes a habit. 😀 I shared about various foods that I love to have when I’m on field break, so now I want to talk about it again, from South Borneo, the place where I have been working for about two years. Gulai kikil (cow’s feet tendon in coconut milk curry) It may sound disgusting for some people, but it becomes one of my favourite dishes lately. I usually have this … Continue reading Foods for Field Break; South Borneo

Indomie, Seleraku…

Literally, “Indomie, my taste…” The excerpt was taken from nationally well known jingle of an instant noodle’s advertisement in Indonesia. It’s raining outside and one thing that always come on my mind when the rain hits hard and the cold goes through my skin passes until the heart is “Indomie”. This is the first and nationally loved instant noodle in Indonesia. It needs 3 minutes to serve this instant noodle onto your dining table, but as I’m getting older, I concern more about preservatives, so it usually takes about 30 minutes for me to serve this, with additional ingredients. So, … Continue reading Indomie, Seleraku…


The last five days I have been so diligent to make my own lunch, even though the company I’m served serves it, and I’ve been also choose a quite simple and healthy food. One of the meal is ‘karedok’; specialty dish of West Java, especially Bandung, raw assorted vegetables (like vegetables salad) with peanut sauce, usually it uses bean sprout, green string bean, cabbage, eggplant, water chectnut,cucumber, and basil, but since I lacked of what i mentioned above, I used other vegetables. The main point of ‘karedok’ is we left the vegetables raw. So below is my own ‘karedok’ ingredients … Continue reading Karedok

Foods for Field Break Part III; Sangatta

I don’t eat at restaurant much when I’m home (at my daddy’s home, actually) because I have 2 great chefs in the house; my sisters. They make one of the best foods in Sangatta (my preference and mostly their friend’s preference). They always ask my day off schedule and when I’m about arriving at Sangatta, they would have been stocked up the ingredients to welcome my arrival (that’s the best thing of working apart from our family). Three days left to my field break and I already decided to have at least these foods. –  Mixed vegetable porridge and ‘sambel … Continue reading Foods for Field Break Part III; Sangatta
