    Hello, Friends especially Foodies!


    I don’t know whether you have been to my country or not, but here, there were so many kind of chilli paste (we called it sambal). If you searched for it maybe you could find more than 200 kind of sambal here, a big number, isn’t it? Sambal actually is chilli paste which made from the mixture of chilli with some other ingredients, for example tomatoes, shrimp paste, red shallot, ginger, scallion, sugar and also lime. It usually handmade traditionally with the rock made from bowl called cobek and also the utencil we used to smoothen and blend the chilli with other ingredients called ulegan.


    In Indonesia, in some restaurants you still could find their sambal served on the traditional cobek, like where we went last Friday. Yes, last Friday we spent half day in the hospital, and before back home, we had our a bit late lunch in on of the restaurant which was famous for their dishes which were served with sambal…. We know well this restaurant because it actually a branch of the restaurant where we usually enjoyed the dishes with chilli paste in Surabaya, the capital city of East Java.


    THE OUTLOOK

    Here was how the restaurant looked like

    When we came there at around 1 pm, this restaurant was crowded, outside many transportation applications’ drivers bought the food here.


    THE DINING AREA

    Inside you would need to go to the second floor to reach their dining area, cause there, the one and only table on the first floor was full of customers. So we went to the second floor’s dining area.

    It was quite large and authentic with rustic wooden furnish, modest but this was their authentic. Here they had some air conditioners, and also the opened windows. The dining area was clean and neat, plus they keep the distance between each other table and gave the partition to each table which was located a bit near, nice!


    THE MENU

    Here they put the menu next to each table (on the wall), in Surabaya I remembered they had the menu attached on the table.. If you want you could also asked for their menu, like mom did…

    The specialization here were all dishes with sambal! But you could choose the level of spiciness of the sambal. I wrote down our orders in a piece of paper they gave.

    THE FOOD, THE DRINK & THE LOOK

    Our drink came first

    Then the dishes with sambal plus sour vegetables soup came, of course with rice too, my menu then came at around 5 minutes later. Here how our lunch looked like

    Look at those dishes in cobek, don’t they look delicious? The appearance of the dishes were modest and as it was. They also gave the hot water to rinse the cutleries, safe and hygienic, right?


    THE TASTE & THE FLAVOUR

    ES CINCAU (ICED GRASSJELLY)

    It had sweet fresh chilling flavour, the grassjelly were cut small cubical, taste authentic as it usually, it served with the fresh syrup. Sweet and fresh! I won’t tell you bout mom’s drink cause she only had unsweetened iced tea (she couldn’t drink much sweetened drink due to her diabetic).

    EMPAL PENYET (TRADITIONALLY COOKED BEEF SMASHED IN SAMBAL)

    It had soft texture cause the empal was shredded, It had sweet savory flavour and served with not too spicy sambal which gave extra fresh chilli flavour to this beef. Completely, it had savory, sweet, and a bit spicy flavour which blended perfectly. No wonder, this dish is one of mom’s favorite!

    AYAM BAKAR BUMBU RUJAK (GRILLED CHICKEN WITH ROEJAK PASTE)

    It had a perfect mixture of sweet, savory and a bit spicy. The chicken was soft, the smell was great. And I love it much!!! Just wondering it makes my mouth watering.. You all should try it! Not every place has a perfect ayam bakar bumbu rujak, but they made it perfectly…

    SAYUR ASEM (SOUR VEGETABLES SOUP)

    This contained the peanuts, corn, kale, bean, cabbage, and could you guess the taste? It had a perfect mixture of sweet and also sour, so delicious and this was one of the best we have ever tasted. Found more gems here!

    TEMPE PENYET (SMASHED FRIED TEMPEH)

    The tempeh had soft texture, a bit greasy with oil, with light savory flavour. The sambal had a little spicy flavour with sweet and savory flavour too. Looked how it wrapped my tempeh with their chilli paste, yummy, right?


    THE PRICE

    Here all the food and drink were all at fair price, our lunch with drink costed 102,500 IDR or just around 7.2 USD. How do you think of it?
