Lately I have been hearing many people saying how delicious Korean food are especially the barbecue one. Honestly, I have never been really interested to try it until few weeks ago I was writing about Korean restaurants and look at the Korean food image at the website. It looks so tasty and tempting.
So here I was… going to Han Gang restaurant in Jalan Walter Mongisidi, South Jakarta to try my first Korean barbecue. As I never tried Korean barbecue before, the waitress suggested me to order modeum gogi, an assorted beef. My ooo my… what a big menu?! I even felt so full to the next day!
I was really glad that finally I had the Korean food after craving for it for few days and it was super good. However I would not have it so often as it is so filling! It is not that expensive for that big menu, my friend and I spent nearly Rp 700,000 (68 USD) for a good quality Korean barbecue. It’s worth!
Anyway, I was wondering who the owner of Han Gang Mongisidi is because on the ground floor of the restaurant is a luxury car showroom called “Leo Auto Cars” 😀
It might look pretty disgusting for some people but this is one of my favourite Indonesian street food, rojak/rujak serut. Rujak serut is traditional fruit salad with slices of assorted tropical fruit such as pineapple, mango, papaya, kedondong and sweet potato with spicy palm sugar dressing.
All the fruits are shredded into a roughly grated consistency then mixed with the sweet and speech dressing, which is made from palm sugar, tamarind, ground sautéed peanut, salt and shrimp paste.
I would say almost everyday I buy rujak for my dessert after lunch. For me, rujak is one of the most healthiest Indonesian traditional snack. It looks disgusting but if you like eating fruit salad, you must try rujak serut. It tastes wonderful!
