Sarang Oci


Manado Cuisine is rarely encountered in West Jakarta area. There’s only one & the most famous, that I know,  is Sarang Oci, at Jalan Panjang. They adapt Morocco design as their interior, so colorful. A lot of family or friend gathering held in this place.

The must order appetizer is Perkedel Jagung or Crispy Corn Fritter (price 12 K to 20 K). I don’t know what flour they use to fried that corn, the result is so freaking crispy and I just can’t stop eat that fritter. They give us 2 different kind chili or sambal: Rica Chili & Dabu-dabu (green tomato,red onion & cayenne pepper slices w/ lemon juice,salt & sugar). The best Corn Fritter! I can’t find another fritter to be compared with this one.

For vegetables menu, I usually order Kangkung Bunga Pepaya or Watercress w/ Papaya Flower (price 22 K). The taste is combination between bitter and spicy. Blended perfectly!

Kangkung Bunga Pepaya

For soup option I recommend Kuah Asam Kakap/Goropa or Snapper/Goropa Fish Sour Soup (price 35 K to 47 K). The soup is made from fish broth boiled with lemon grass, orange leave, basil/kemangi leave, scallion & vinegar. So refreshing my throat & my stomache.

At grilled area, you can choose Sirip Pari Bakar or Grilled Stingray Fin (price 43 K). They grilled it with spicy rica seasoning. So yummy. You can choose the spiciness level. The fish meat is so tender and you can eat the fish bone if you like it. Or you can choose to order Ekor Tenggiri Bakar or Grilled Mackerel Tail (price 60 K). They came with a huge size, the fish meat is so thick! Enough for 3 or 4 person.

For closing, you can order Es Kacang Merah Durian or Red Bean Ice with Durian (price 20 K). You can order it with or without Durian. The red bean is boiled very well and mix successfully with the ice, chocolate sauce & caramel. Perfect for hot weather!
