As promised before, I would like to write something about "street foods". You know in Jakarta there are just a lot of "warung makan" on the side of the street that might surprisingly offer delicious food. So if you are bored reading about fine dinings, or if you want to know a nice "warung makan", stay tune in this review.
This particular "warung makan" which I visited sells chicken porridge. I was told by my blog reader about this "warung" and was so eager to find out by myself.
My review today is going to be about Bubur Ayam Jakarta.
There it was at my table, steaming hot chicken porridge with so soo generous toppings. The toppings are shredded fried chicken meat, roasted nuts, chopped scallions, slices of fried char kuey (cakwe in Indonesian), fried onions, also not forgetting the crackers. There were also an option to add celery, but I skipped it since I don't like it that much.
What I loved about the porridge was that it's not too sloppy. A fine thick and densed texture. I can still felt the rice grain so vagued in the porridge. The basic porridge itself only uses chicken stock, salt, and pepper in the making. The chicken meat was good, it's not dry so chewing them wasn't that hard. The overall taste was good. Flavorful and quite rich in texture. In every bite I felt the soft porridge, the crunchy nuts and the juicy chicken meat.
They were cooked nicely, making them soft and tender. Before they were fried, the satays are marinated in turmeric and salt, giving them a savory and a nice aroma too. Quite tasty.
Overall conclusion, so again I found a great "warung makan" which offered good food. A good place that sells tasty chicken porridge. It's no wonder why so many customers come to this place just for the porridge. The flavors are good and the price is so affordable.
Yet again, another hidden treasure is found.
So I'm now off to another quest to find another hidden spots that offer great food. Do let me know if you have any references about a good "warung makan" nearby or if you want me to write a review about a specific "warung makan". Can't wait for my next quest!
Keep on chewing!
