Coco Curry


If us Indonesians have our rendang then the Japanese promote their distinctive curry sauce. Thick consistency with the great fragrant is a factor, sweet with a touch of heat is another trait. A franchisee came into the action at Grand Indonesia, goes with the name of 'Coco Curry'. If I am not mistaken, the original store was obviously in Japan and made it's way down to Singapore and then here Jakarta.

Do I like it? Umm...not so much actually. I am quite a big fan of Japanese curry but this was pretty ordinary. Nothing out of box; taste wise. I wouldn't say don't try it but it didn't made me crave for a second helping. I might come back here maybe in another 6 months time though...hehehe...

Sop Buntut Ibu Henny

Look, I am not a big fan of Sop Buntut or if I may translate it in English ; Oxtail Soup. I don't even crave for the famous Sop Buntut Hotel Borobudur; if you want to know. But this one over here, is a definite definite Must Try !!! I know the original store is in Sunter, close to Kelapa Gading. I haven't tried the original store but the branch in Emporium Pluit Mall, food court is heavenly enough for me!

I had this menu above for a mere Rp 55,000. It comes with no rice but with additional a few thousand rupiah, it shouldn't be any problem. Loveee the buntut bakar !! Sweet, spicy and smokey aroma is definitely strong in the oxtail. The soup is also super duper good. Very dense in beef broth and even though I know the MSG they put in is massive, I couldn't stop scooping the soup until the last bit of drop. Bloody good but bad for cholesterol. As always, balance is key :)
