First Video Collaboration with Narasi.TV

Since I moved and living together with my husband here in Rouen, France, I always missed Indonesian food. And so do him. He fell in love with Indonesian food since the first time he tried Indonesian Nasi Goreng.

Then he told me, there is an Indonesian food truck that sells nearby his University which caught our eyes and our stomach, of course. Therefore, we would like to introduce you to the Indonesian Food Truck which is very famous here in our city!

Here we present you our friend who sells Indonesian food in Rouen, France.

LE JAVA BALI!

Thank you, Narasi TV team!

(D)roolling cheese by Ojju!

Happy Monday all!

Today, I am gonna show you another happening Korean restaurant in J-town! (red: Jakarta Town).

The restaurant name is Ojju K-Food!

What makes it really special and very happening? It because they have the phenomenal rolling cheese, which will definitely spoil your tongue and mouth!

I went to Ojju K-Food in Gandaria City, unluckily, on the weekend. Why it was unlucky? Because it was very crowd and full of people, even I went there around 2 pm, which is it shouldn’t be very crowd because it was already passed off the lunch time.

But, in fact, I got the queue number and should have to wait for around 25 numbers, which was waited for almost 2 hours! Yes, it was a very crazy queue! But don’t worry, we can track our queue numbers from their website, so we don’t have to wait in front of their restaurant for hours, but you can also do window shopping while waiting for your turn! 😉

And after 2 hours of waiting, it was paid off by this delicious view!

Rolling Cheese Chicken Wings (Fiery Spicy)

I love this restaurant because of their concept is different from other Korean restaurants in Jakarta, from their interior design, their unique service system, their Korean food menu, and the food taste!

Beside the famous menu of Rolling Cheese Chicken Wings, they also have other main menus, such as Budae Jjigae (Korean ramyeon). FYI, the Budae Jjigae is a Korean army stew dish where you can put various toppings, such as; beef (169K), chicken (149K), seafood (229K) and vegetables (119K) or you can create your own toppings! 😉

Two choices: Beef Ribs (219K) and Chicken Wings (99K)

Like any other Korean restaurants, they also sell Korean Banchan (Korean small dishes menu); Tteokbokki (rice cake), Ramyeon (Korean noodles),  Dosirak (rice box with 3 choices of chicken, beef and seafood as main dish), Japchae (Korean noodles stir fry) and many more. The price itself very variant from 9K to 89K! I would recommend the Tteokbokki, because it was very tasty, delicious and spicy.

They started to roll the cheese until it’s melted on the mini stove in our table!

For drinks, they have variant of lemonade, juices, soft drinks, and the famous soju (Korean alcohol drinks). Last time, I chose their signature Corn Tea only for 22K and you can enjoy it approximately for 3-4 person!

They also served us some of the FREE side dishes as complimentary, such as; kimchi, sweet and creamy corn, milky macaroni, and some sour-spicy pickles (cucumber kimchi), where you can see half of the looks in this picture below!

On finding Korean spicy ramen in Town!

Haloha! It’s a weekend blast!

Today, I am going to make you very jealous and drooling just because of the food that I really want to share with you.

This weekend, I’ve decided to treat my sister and my nephew in two famous and very happening Korean restaurants in Jakarta. It is located in one of a shopping mall names Gandaria City, South Jakarta.

Almost every people were talking about this two Korean restaurants, one of them was Double Pots! I knew and looked at those pictures about this kind of foods on Instagram, here are their official Instagram account @doublepots. So, at first, we decided to go there yesterday.

Then, voila…

Korean Spicy Hot Soup (before it’s cooked)

 

img_20170128_112834
And this is when its already cooked!

Yes, it’s Korean Spicy Hot Soup (with double noodles). It’s very tempting, right?

Anyway, this is one of their special and most favourite ramen/soup dish which contains; fish cake, beef sausage, Shimeji mushrooms, Korean noodle, kimchi, cheese slice, narutomaki (kind of seafood), beef slice, fresh fish balls, mixed vegetables, chikuwa, crab nugget, and seafood tofu. The taste was very tasteful, not too spicy for me who really love spicy food, hahaha. But it’s very recommended!

Besides the Korean Spicy Hot Soup, they also have Beef Hot Soup, since we prefer seafood than beef, so we order the Korean Spicy Hot Soup one! Uuumm yummy :9

Look at Mikhailov’s excited face!

Besides Korean ramen, they also have any seafood or chicken side dish platter. We chose to order the prawn with salted egg. You can also add-ons some of the side dish in your hot ramen soup, such as; eggs, cheese, noodle, fish cake, and etc.

The price is not too expensive, for the Korean Hot Spicy Soup it was only IDR 78,000 (or equal to $ 6/EUR 5.5) and since the pot/bowl is large enough, so actually you can eat it for two people! (Mine was for 3 people, hahaha). And for the side dish platter the price starting from IDR 40,000 until IDR 60,000 ($ 3/EUR 2.7 – $ 4.4/EUR 4).

Journey to find the Köttbullar, Swedish Meatballs in Stockholm, Sweden

In 2015, I had a chance to go to Stockholm, Sweden, which for me, I never had a dream to go to such a beautiful city. I had a dream to Europe, but then I did not know much about this city and the country. What I really know about the country was… IKEA and their meatballs. Back to 2013, I really like to go to IKEA to bought some cool stuff for my home and my bedroom. But back then, the nearest IKEA that I could visit was only the one in Singapore. Since I was quite often visiting Singapore mostly for my work, so I went there maybe more than five times, either only for eating or bought some stuff.

I was so happy that my senior adviser in my office now, gave me the recommendation to join with one of the biggest Internet Forum which annually been held in Stockholm, Sweden. So, that time I was thinking maybe I should travel more to get to know the city, then I should have to go to the first and original IKEA once I am in Stockholm, Sweden. After long walked and get lost like for more than 2 hours just to find the IKEA shuttle bus in the city centre

And this what I’ve got…

Spent my first day in Stockholm with this delicious Swedish food

It was different taste with the one that I ate in Singapore last time, hahaha, of course! The meatballs were very tasteful with the Gräddsås (cream sauce), and I love their Lingonsylt (lingonberry jam), also the tasty Potatisimos (mashed potatoes)!

20151019_154332
The tasty Köttbullar

The original meatballs usually used either pork or beef. My favourite, of course, the beef (since I don’t like pork, haha). The Swedish meatballs or köttbullar have been brought to Sweden by King Charles XII, after his exile in Istanbul in 1713. Meatballs and kebabs have long been a staple of Middle Eastern cuisine and have been featured on 196 flavours numerous times. The Swedish word for meatball, köttbullar, first appeared in Swedish print a few decades later in Cajsa Warg’s 1754 cookbook. Anna Christina Warg, better known as Cajsa Warg, is one of the most famous cooks in Swedish history.

Then, they became popular in the United States after the immigration of Scandinavians to the northern Midwest States in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. During that period, more than 1.3 million Swedes migrated to the US.

Anyway, you should not have to go to IKEA only to eat the Köttbullar (like what I did before, lol) because, most of the restaurants in Stockholm or maybe in all over Sweden, also sell it! You even can also cook it by yourself, they also sell it as frozen food at the supermarket and you can find the Lingonsylt easily in IKEA!

This year I will have a chance to go to Stockholm again, and I will try to find another delicious köttbullar in one of the restaurants in there. Does anyone know where should I go? Please, leave your comment here! Tack!

*Tack, Swedish language means thank you!
