I brought Ru and Pati to The Kiosk, Dago to had dinner. This restaurant served many kinds of Indonesian cuisine. Ru and I chose soto ayam, a yellow spicy chicken soup with noodles and boiled eggs. It is also served with rice and kerupuk (prawn cracker). Turmeric is added as one of its ingredients to get yellow chicken broth. Actually Indonesia has many varieties of soto, and this is one of them.
This was my second time having dinner at Chao Thai restaurant in Shibuya. I ordered this menu, basically tom yum gung soup with rice sticks. I feel the “kuai tiao” is the same to kwetiau in Indonesia, which is a kind of noodle made from rice. The soup was delicious, but there were too many noodle comparing to the veggie and the shrimp. And also, in my opinion, tom yam I ate at a Thai halal restaurant in Shin-okubo (now it moved to Tabata) years ago was more tasty. Sre still ordered Pad Thai. Evan also ordered this menu, plus rice. 😛
Oh my God, it’s almost 1 month I didn’t update this Posterous. It feels like really looong time for me. Last month I was busy finishing my thesis. It wasn’t that I had no time to cook or to eat new food in the restaurant, but I had no will to do both. Sigh. And finally I finished my thesis defense on February 8th. That day was also thesis submission day for Sre. Then we arranged eating out together, also with Nova. Actually we planned to eat at Sweet Paradise, but it’s already closed on 8 pm, huhu. Then we moved to a Thai restaurant. I ordered Pad Woon Sen, which was almost like bihun goreng in the street food in Bandung :)). Sre ordered Pad Thai and Nova ordered Tom Yum.
Dari bandara Soekarno-Hatta, malamnya saya langsung lanjut dengan penerbangan ke Padang. Dari Padang dijemput sodara di bandara, lalu bareng-bareng pulang ke rumah saya yang masih makan waktu 2-3 jam perjalanan. Di perjalanan mampir dulu makan soto, hoho. Lumayan buat ngisi perut, udah lama juga ga makan soto khasnya Sumatra Barat 😀
Jadi tadi siang karena laper, ga ada makanan, plus malas masak, akhirnya saya ke Kebab Cafe, Shibuya buat cari makan. Liat menunya akhirnya saya iseng mau coba yang ini. Di awal dikasi sup dulu, rasa kentang, sup kentang kali ya :p Itu aja udah kenyang. Menu utamanya nasi, roti kebab, semacam beef burger, grilled green bell pepper (gede banget ini, tapi saya ndak suka :p), serta salad. Kenyang banget. Beres makan saya mau bayar, orangnya bilang sumimasen, awalnya saya ga ngeh, ternyata masih ada ceylon tea. Di Jepun sini makan siang emang lebih murah ya, n suka ada lunch set. Tadinya saya mikirnya ga ada sup dan teh itu :p Well, tapi menurut saya masih lebih enak kebabnya dibanding ini 😀
