It's a very humble restaurant. There's no air-conditioner, only fan.
You will be "greeted" by a shoeshine man at the entrance door. Then, a magazine vendor is selling around from one table to the other table.
I ordered a glass of passion fruit (Markisa) which cost Rp. 7.500.
The 3 kind of chilies are for free but the small plate of cucumber pickle (acar ketimun) costs Rp. 2.000.
My boss ordered his favorite dishes. First is the shrimp balls soup (Baso Udang Kuah) for appetizer. I think it's a very nice choice as an opening for the full meal. The shrimp balls tasted flavorful with a bit of chewy texture.
Fried frogs with butter sauce (Kodok goreng saus mentega) is wonderful. The first bite, you can feel the crispy part then follows by the inside soft tender meat from the legs' frogs fried with salty butter and sweet soy sauce plus a bit of kaffir lime juice on the top which made the aroma of this dish nicely.
This below dish - Huis Pot Babi, was my favorite. It's fried pork wrapped in batter, and mashed potato on the side. The fried pork is boneless and crispy. The mashed potato is an old Dutch style where the potato is not smooth nor creamy, and has little cubes of carrots in it. It's served with sliced tomatoes and cucumber.
Ayam Nanking means Nanking Chicken. Nanking is a name of a town in China, I guess this dish came from Nanking :) It's sliced chicken layered with ham and also minced prawns then dipped into batter before being fried, then later on before we eat it, we squeeze a kaffir lime on it. This dish is very flavorful.
All the dishes are eaten with white rice.
At the end of the lunch, I thanked my boss for the scrumptious lunch :)
