Many people from china land come to other countries to build their life in the new land. Usually they married with the natives, that automatically create the new culture called “Cina Peranakan”, or in English we can say: “Halfblooded Chinese”. It also happened in Indonesia. And it affect to their culinary too. Mix between Chinese and Javanese. Well, actually I’m one of them,xixi…They usually raised their kids with the Dutch culture. So, I’m so excited to dine in this place, because it brought me back to my childhood memories.
The vintage chinese homey style design really dominated in their interior. The old radio, charcoal iron, cooking pans are the accessories that adding the richness of chinese culture in this place. The waitress is also wear cheongsam (chinese traditional wardrobe). They put it all together into one strong concept. Good!
For opening dish, I order Buncis Sechuan. Fresh string bean sautéed with minced beef and special sambal. Not too spicy for me. Well cooked. Quite tasty.
Second dish: Tahu Cincang Daging Ayam. Japan tofu sautéed with minced chicken, mushroom & fresh veggies. It taste delicious.
Next dish: Ifumie. Ifumie in this place is very different with Ifumie at the other restaurant. The same ingredients but they use different sauce: sweet sour sauce. I think it’s quite weird for my tongue. Too heavy taste for crispy noodle. Honestly, I didn’t like it. Oooww, one thing that I almost forgot, they served it cold. I don’t know why, but at that night, this place is not too crowded. I’ve already wrote my critics at their comment card.
Then I also tried their Gurame Asam Manis (carp fish with sweet sour sauce). Unfortunately it has the same taste with Ifumie. Wew, it’s not a good thing order 2 dishes at the same time with exactly have the same taste. It’s taste so so, and once again this dish is also served cold. Very disappointed!
The last dish: Ayam Ibu Tiri. First time I read that dish’s name, I laugh, because if I translated in English,that means: “Stepmom Chicken”. I don’t know why they named it like that, maybe because they’re so spicy? Haha…..maybe their spiciness will ‘tortured’ your tongue, the same thing happened to you if you have a stepmom. LOL!
For me, this is the best dish for tonight. Thank God! Fried chicken sautéed with Green Chili. I think they adapt the manado cuisine for this dish. Maybe that’s why I like it? Nom…nom….scrumptious! Must order for spicy lover! Price range from 70 k to 100 k per pax/person.
