Do An

I don't get to eat a lot of Vietnamese cuisine in Jakarta. You can get lots of Thai food but not so much on the Vietnamese. Actually I think both of them (Thai and Vietnamese food) has a lot of resemblance in taste wise; sour and spicy! The variety is different for sure but the general taste is some how very much alike. Anyways, I was at Mall Kelapa Gading and decided on a light dinner as I had a heavy heavy lunch -__-lll. In general I like the food, the sour punch is right there on your tongue and just to make things better; the pricing are rather easy on the wallet and well portioned !!

Menu : Bo La Lop
Price : RP 25,000 ++
Score : 6.75 / 10

>> This is a dish of grilled beef wrapped in  wild betel leaf. I'm not really sure what kind of leaf is that but definitely edible haha! I like the grilled beef inside, tender and has that 'smoky' flavor to it. The peanuts sprinkle on top adds an additional texture to the dish and the sauce on the side was much needed to lift this dish! Very sour and has a punch on the tongue.
Menu : Bo Du Du
Price : RP 28,500 ++
Score : 7.75 / 10

>> My favorite dish on the menu !! Price is not only cheap, the portion is enough for 2 person and most importantly has every element of a 'Vietnamese' dish. Spicy, sour and crunchy texture of the crackers, onion and peanuts are all there to compliment the tender beef salad drenched in the spicy vinegar sauce! Yummmm to the max and still minimal on the waist ! Droooolllsssss....
