Ayam Taliwang Rinjani

Standard

Ayam Taliwang is a spicy Indonesian chicken dish from Lombok. It is named after Karang Taliwang in Mataram, the capital of Lombok. Ayam Taliwang is made with chicken which is cut and cleaned prior to grilling. Once it has been frilled halfway, it is removed from the grill and tenderized with a pestle. It is then dipped in cooking oil; after several seconds in the oil, it is put in a spicy sauce of garlic, chili, and shrimp paste. It is then fried or grilled to order.

You can find this dish at West Jakarta area. I’ve known this place for a long time ago. It is only a small tavern at the corner of Pesanggrahan street. But it’s always crowded with people. If I came too late, usually they run out of dish.

Ayam Taliwang physically appears similar to regular grilled or fried chicken, with a covering of sambal. Price 25 K. You can ask for the spiciness level (medium or super spicy). Today I wanna try their super spicy level. I think I’ve made a wrong choice, because the spiciness of their sambal is really burn my mouth and torture my tongue. Too spicy for me, huhuhu…. Next time I better order their medium level. Its taste is salty and spicy. I think I more enjoy Ayam Taliwang As Siddiq’s version that I ate in Bali; sweet & spicy! But over all, it’s quite delicious.

For side dish I also order their Plecing Kangkung. Price 8 K. It’s water spinach, bean sprout & string bean covering with sambal and sprinkle with fried nut. It feels so fresh, crunchy and quite spicy. Healthy and tasty!

Sate Plecing Arjuna

Standard

Sate Plecing is located at the corner of Yudisthira and Arjuna Street. Small tavern only suit for 20 persons. This place is recommended by our driver. He said on the lunch time, this place is very crowded.

Their specialty dish in here is Sate Babi (pork skewer). You can choose between the sweet sauce or the spicy one, called plecing. Because I’m a spicy food lover, I definitely want to try their Sate Plecing. Price 16 K. The satay came in the small pieces. Its taste very nom nom! I love the fatty part. The smoked seasoning of its spicy sauces soaked all over the meat. It’s very good!

They also served Sop Bakso (meatball soup) and Bakut (pork ribs soup). But I don’t give a try this time, because my stomach has already full. Perhaps another time!

RM Ayam Taliwang As Siddiq

Standard

After Sanur, now I’m going to Bedugul area. Bedugul is a mountain lake resort area in Bali, Indonesia. It’s located in the centre-north region of the island near Lake Bratan on the road between Denpasar and Singaraja. Other nearby lakes are Lake Buyan and Lake Tamblingan.

Bedugul enjoys a mild mountain weather due to its location at an altitude of about 1,500 metres above the sea level. Major sites in Bedugul are the Eka Karya Botanic Gardens and the Pura Ulun Danu Bratan (water pura). Pura is Balinese temple or Hindu temple.

Beatiful view in here! I really enjoy the coolness of the air. I do not feel it in Jakarta city. After get around at Pura Ulun, I feel so hungry. I really confuse because there’s no recommendation in this Bedugul area that I’ve got from my culinary friends. Wew, so I have to find it out by myself.

On the right side of Pura Ulun, there’s a Lombok Food Restaurant: RM Ayam Taliwang As Siddiq. I decided to dine in this place.

As Siddiq

Ayam Taliwang is the specialty dish in here and it’s also the most famous Lombok food. Ayam Taliwang is made with chicken, which is cut and cleaned prior to grilling. Once it has been grilled halfway, it is removed from the grill and tenderized with a pestle. It is then dipped in cooking oil; after several seconds in the oil, it is put in a spicy sauce of garlic, chili, and shrimp paste. It is then fried or grilled to order.

It can be served with a side of Plecing Kangkung (water spinach with chili sauce). Price 8 K. They mixed the boiled water spinach, bean sprout, grated coconut and fried peanut and covering it all with spicy chili. Very nice and of course healthy!

Accidentally found, but it’s really impressed me. I definitely will be back in here if I have another chance.
