Rumah Makan Ikan Bakar Cianjur, Jakarta Indonesia

Last Sept'08 trip, thanks to Datuk K, I was introduced to a most scenic Sundanese restaurant.

On my 2nd trip, with
Sir V as our makan guide, I tasted a Solonese yummy specialty. Sir V insisted we should have this for our final dinner during that trip. It was late, almost 9pm (10pm in Malaysia) so he called ahead to enquire whether the restaurant’s specialty was still available. Foodies Star was shining on us. Brightly. Why dine so late, you ask? All because Mr V had us bodily (wo)manhandled for 1 1/2 hours. Ahhh bliss.

Now back to food.
Nasi Liwet. Served in an unassuming stainless steel pot. When Sir V lifted the lid, we were unprepared for the aromatic waft. Imagine the smell. Freshly boiled rice in coconut milk (not quite unlike our Nasi Lemak yet not as heavily infused) enveloping the topping of stir fried dried shrimps and salty anchovies (hopefully I decipher the ingredients correct) with garlic, onions and chilies. *wipe drool*

Bill which tourists (we we we) did not pay:-

Address on bill:

Our dear Sir V

And that concludes my Jakarta (2nd trip) posts. *sigh*

For now. *sigh* I suspect
there are still posts lurking somewhere in my hard drive but hey, that's discovery for another day. =-D

Good Morning, thenomadGourmand.

My first taste of Ikan Gurame was at that KLCC restaurant. Relatively pricier but what to expect? KLCC-mah.

I was a bit confused when I read the tittle of your post on my blog list but then understood after I read the same word in this post. There's a lack of "R" at the end of the word "Cianju" at your post tittle, hehehe...

Cianjur is a little city in West Java, quite well known for their fruit pickles.

This food is sundanese food and I love eating it :D

p.s: the mixed vegetable dish is called Karedok.

Tummythoz said...

Oops. Amended. TQ Selba.

Btw, what's in Karedok?

sc, since you are quite well-verse in Malay food around town, pretty please lemme know if this is available here.

Sudanese food is heavy on herbs and spicy to awakened the taste buds. I over-eat everytime.

Tummythoz said...

worldwindows, so true. Malaysian dishes taste rather bland after heavy Indonesian food pampering.
