Spotted Dick – Kuliner Nyeleneh Inggris

  • April 9, 2021

The Ultimate Spotted Dick adalah puding khas Inggris yang pasti banyak orang kenal. Awalnya dibuat pada tahun 1820 oleh John Lawrence, orang biasa dari Liverpool. Dia menciptakan hidangan ini saat bepergian ke Inggris dan Skotlandia, tetapi tidak diizinkan untuk memakannya karena mengandung banyak daging babi. Dalam pembelaannya, dia mengklaim itu adalah puding lokal yang menginspirasi nama itu.

Spotted Dick

Puding Inggris sebenarnya sangat mirip dengan puding barbekyu ala Amerika. Namun, di kedua hidangan tersebut, ada bahan manis dan asin yang biasa ditemukan dalam resep barbekyu. Daging dalam makanan ini direndam dalam tepung dan rempah-rempah, dicampur bersama sampai warnanya menjadi coklat tua. Ini kemudian dimasak dalam wajan besi, seringkali dengan glasir manis yang mendasari untuk meningkatkan kedalaman rasa.

Di Inggris Raya, hidangan puding yang khas akan mencakup potongan ham kupas dan berbagai topping sayuran yang berbeda. Bahkan ada salah satu produsen pangsit sejenis yang membuat siomay dalam ukuran raksasa menyerupai bola kaki atau pisang. Berbagai macam pangsit dapat ditemukan di setiap pub Inggris, sarat dengan bir dan ale, serta disajikan dengan keripik dan keju. Beberapa pub bahkan telah menetapkan “area puding”, tempat orang dapat duduk dan menikmati makanan dengan segelas bir dingin.

Di Cina, Ultimate Spotted Dick dapat ditemukan dengan banyak nama. Salah satunya adalah Hong cha kai, yang secara harfiah berarti pangsit babi pipi emas. Namanya berasal dari warna emas kai, yang sebenarnya merupakan spesies ginseng. Pangsitnya berwarna terang dan dibuat dari bahan yang renyah. Nama kuning adalah deskripsi yang tepat untuk pangsit ini karena lebih mirip puding cokelat daripada pangsit sebenarnya.

Gurih Legit

The Ultimate Spotted Dick berisi campuran campuran puding, susu, telur, dan krim asam. Resepnya tidak diungkapkan di kalengnya, tetapi umumnya dianggap sebagai resep Irlandia. Cokelat pada pangsit dibuat menggunakan cokelat batangan tanpa pemanis, yang dilelehkan dalam microwave sebelum dicampur dengan bahan lainnya. Krim yang dimasukkan ke dalam puding juga biasanya dibuat menggunakan krim tartar, bahan susu bubuk yang manis.

Bubble and Squeak

Bubble and Squeak – Gelembung dan cicit?

  • April 9, 2021

Bubble and Squeak adalah hidangan Inggris yang dibuat dengan merebus kentang rebus dan kubis dengan mentega lalu menggorengnya. Penulis makanan tradisional Howard Hillman mengklasifikasikannya di antara “bahan makanan paling umum dan termurah”. Dalam inkarnasi awalnya, hidangan ini hanya menyertakan daging yang dimasak. Seiring waktu berlalu, itu ditambahkan ke makanan lain termasuk keju, telur, sayuran, dan buah-buahan.

Bubble and Squeak

Resep paling awal untuk Bubble and Squeak, dicatat dalam buku catatan seorang wanita Jamaika, mengacu pada air mendidih, garam, sepotong keju, merica, telur, dan satu sendok teh soda bubuk. Ramuan itu kemudian ditambahkan ke dalam setengah liter air hangat dan didihkan di atas api terbuka. Cairan yang dihasilkan kemudian disajikan dengan roti dan disebarkan ke seluruh meja, para tamu menjilati tangan mereka. Ini dianggap sebagai akhir yang tepat untuk makan malam yang meriah.

Ketika Christopher Columbus berlayar ke Eropa pada 1493, dia membawa serta resep untuk membuat gelembung dan mencicit yang termasuk garam, mentega, dan keju. Dia mungkin telah membawa gagasan ini lebih jauh ketika dia mendarat di pulau Majorca. Meskipun tidak ada bukti dokumenter tentang dia membuat hidangan khusus ini, yang kami tahu adalah bahwa dia dapat menukarkannya di antara orang-orangnya dengan makanan.

Ini segera menjadi populer di kalangan orang miskin di pulau itu sebagai camilan cepat dan mudah. Tidak lama kemudian mereka bisa memanen hasil panen besar dan mengirimnya pulang bersama keluarga mereka. Segera, itu menggantikan banyak hidangan mereka yang lain. Akhirnya, hidangan itu dikenal sebagai “bubble and squeak” di negara-negara berbahasa Inggris, Kanada dan Amerika Serikat. Pada masa itu makanan ringan dianggap sangat ekonomis dan sehat, terutama karena tidak menggunakan lemak atau garam.

Resep

Saat mulai mendidih, tambahkan kerupuk soda dan aduk hingga semua bahan tercampur rata. Setelah selesai, angkat dari api dan biarkan agak dingin. Kemudian siap disajikan. Hidangan ini memiliki rasa yang enak dan akan membuat tamu dan keluarga Anda tersenyum lebar. Membuat gelembung dan mencicit saat berikutnya Anda berada di restoran dan saksikan mereka menikmati makanan lezat ini.

Hua Mui Restaurant, Johor Bahru

  • March 15, 2021

Hua Mui Restaurant, Johor Bahru. From the name Hua Mui, we must have guess that this restaurant has a mandarin taste. There is no halal logo but halal (confuse right?). But most of the visitors are Muslim wearing headscarves because of Hua Mui’s “No Pork & No Lard” and no pork menu. If you go to Johor Bahru it is mandatory to try it because all the dishes are delicious.

Don’t imagine that the restaurant is luxurious because the place is old school with old-school tile style and the building is also like a movie in Hong Kong. If you go to Hua Mui, my favorite place is on the second floor with a spot next to the window. From near the window I could see the atmosphere of Jalan Dhobby which was always busy.

What you must order is the Chicken Chop, Tea, and toast. The Chicken Chop which is serve consists of chicken fillet wrap in crispy flour then pour with mushroom sauce. Complementing it are large cut fries, tomatoes and peas. The portion is quite large so even without rice it will be filling. The taste is very good, tasty and very typical of Johor Bahru.

As a friend of the Chicken Chop I order Tea. Malaysian tea really misses, because tea is also known as teh Tarik. Meanwhile, “o” tea is tea without milk like in Indonesia. Don’t get the wrong message, because if you want sweet tea then order “o” tea. Actually the best thing here is coffee milk, but because I am really thirsty, I ask for iced tea, not half-heartedly two at a time. Even though my tea uses milk, it’s still fresh and doesn’t make you feel sick.

Overflowing with Chicken Chop and two iced teas, I barely glanced at my butter toast. Indeed, this bread looks ordinary and has no appeal. But because I couldn’t have the heart to taste the food, I too lazily tried it. Turns out it tastes really good. The butter is super delicious and the bread is special too. I, who was lazy to eat at first, devoured it voraciously. (Hua Mui Restaurant, Johor Bahru)

Ichiba Market

Culinary Trip at Kuromon Ichiba Market, Osaka

  • March 8, 2021

Culinary Trip at Kuromon Ichiba Market, Osaka. In my opinion, there are not many tourist attractions in Osaka, one of which is the must-visit Kuromon Ichiba Market. As a fan of youtube and the migrationology blog, I am attracted to Kuromon Ichiba Market because Mark Wiens always manages to review culinary spots nicely.

Going to Kuromon Ichiba Market is very easy to reach, if you get loss it means you lacking body ions hehhehe .. The transportation is, get off at Nippombashi Station exit 10.
Just turn left for 200 meters until you see Kuromon Ichiba Market.

Walk and Culinary at Kuromon Ichiba Market Osaka

If I read on the official Kuromon Ichiba Market, this market is only 580 meters long. It has been establish since 190 years ago. There are 150 shops selling mostly fresh fish, restaurants as well as cosmetics and clothing stores. Actually, I went to Kuromon Ichiba Market and didn’t buy a target. Want to wash your eyes and see strange seafood forms such as fugu or scallops.

Kuromon Ichiba Market has been set up like a tourist market, each alley in the market has been classify for its type of shop. Also, the tourist information center is also complete with Customer Service, Maps, free wifi and toilets. Wow, I immediately remembered that the Atum Market, my pride from Surabaya, will also be visited by many foreign tourists.

I was immediately attracted to the food stall which was surrounded by visitors. Immediately I approached it turned out to be a scallop and kobe beef seller. This scallop is a white-fleshed scallop, with a large shell but little meat.

At that time I wanted to go back and forth to order because the price was 500 yen or Rp. 70,000, – but not full, in the end I didn’t buy it. If I write a blog like this, I regret why I didn’t buy it before, now I’m curious.

 Japanese Snacks

There are lots of snacks at Kuromon Ichiba Market but I don’t know the names because all of them are written in Japanese characters. Then I was stranded at Takoyaki Wanaka which is said to be very famous at Kuromon Ichiba Market. I bought Takoyaki for 450 yen to get 8. As well as “ngaso” at Takoyaki Wanaka there are also seats and free to get cold drinking water.

Takoyaki in Japan tastes different from what I usually buy in Indonesia. Yes, you know that in Indonesia, I usually buy 25 thousand the most, if in Osaka it’s around 60 thousand, so the contents of the octopus taste really good. The takoyaki outside is super crispy and the inside is really melting, if you touch it a little bit it immediately breaks up (duh the language heheehe …)

I won’t regret going to Kuromon Ichiba Market because you can also enjoy the activities of local people who are in the market. The atmosphere is really Japanese too, like in movies. If you want to snack satisfied, at least prepare 300 thousand money, you will definitely try all the food there.

Halal Culinary Tours In Hong Kong

Halal Culinary Tours In Hong Kong. Before leaving for Hong Kong, I was excited to make a special itinerary for halal culinary tours in Hong Kong. Andrenalin, I feel challenged to find halal culinary in a minority country where most of the food contains pork.

Some references to halal food in Hong Kong are mostly Indian food with strong spices. In fact, there are many halal foods in Hong Kong that are other than Indian cuisine. So that I don’t get bored, I mix and match with Indian, Asian, Hong Kong, Turkish and Pakistani culinary delights, so the impression is like culinary delights in several countries. The next mission is to find halal culinary with affordable prices and large portions.

1453 Ottoman Mediterranean Turkish Restaurant

In the Mongkok area around the Ladies Market, there are many halal restaurants with Indian flavors. However, I am more interested in one of the well-known Turkish restaurants, namely 1453 Ottoman Mediterranian Turkish Restaurant (the name is really long hehehe).

Entering this restaurant, you can see that the room is not that wide enough for only 40 people. The interior is typical of Turkey, such as photos, paintings and there are also piles of Islamic books that are displayed on the walls of the restaurant. What attracts visitors are not only Muslims, I also see many Hong Kong citizens, foreign tourists and even Korean-faced ones.

Chicken Sach Kebab With Rice consists of sliced ​​chicken, tomato, paprika with strong pepper, the taste is similar to the contents of a kebab, while the Chicken Dinner Kebab consists of shredded chicken with a sprinkling of pepper.

I still prefer the taste of Chicken Sach Kebab because it tastes more unique. To complement the sauce, each table provides 4 kinds of sauces, namely tomato sauce, chili sauce, mint sauce and garlic sauce which can be dipped as much as you like.

The Explore’r Club, Disneyland Hong Kong

If you go to Hong Kong, you must have an agenda to visit Hong Kong Disneyland. In this playground area, you don’t need to worry about having trouble tasting halal food. To make it easier for visitors, on the Hong Kong Disneyland map it is written that there are two halal restaurants, namely Tahitian Terrace with Indian menus and The explorer club with Asian menus.

My choice is of course The explorer club in the Mystic Point Zone. Incidentally, my ticket has a promo as well as a meal coupon that can choose food at any price. Because it was free I chose the most expensive one, for HKD 138 (the most expensive bo…).

Asian menu options are available from Korea, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore. I happen to miss Singaporean food, I chose the Hainanse Chicken Rice Combo and my friend chose the Deep fried Chicken Rice menu from Japan.

My Hainanse comes with quite a lot of portions, a portion of nasi lemak, chicken broth, and quite abundant slices of chicken. Meanwhile, Deep Fried Chicken Rice comes with rice like the taste of fried rice, chicken steak covered in crispy flour and thick sauce. The taste is standard but the most important thing is that it is filling and halal. (Halal Culinary Tours In Hong Kong).

Special Kabab

Al Ustad Special Kabab, Dubai

  • February 22, 2021

Al Ustad Special Kabab, Dubai. Finding Al Ustad Special Kabab was full of struggles, because of taking the wrong bus I had to be stranded in the arid border area of ​​Dubai and Sharjah. Good thing I was able to come back to town again after asking a few people. I got lost because I followed the recommended GPS guide to take the bus; even though Al Ustad Special Kabab is easier to reach from the Al Fahidi Metro exit 4.

Arriving at Al Ustad Special Kabab, I was immediately amaze to see the crowd of visitors who came. These visitors were willing to line up at the exit, including me, who was willing to wait 30 minutes to get a seat. The seating capacity is actually a lot, but because it coincides with lunch time, the restaurant is very crowd. Please understand because this restaurant is a compulsory culinary that must be visited by tourists.

(Please read and visit another article about Dubai Culinary Food And Delights)

Al Ustad Special Kabab Menu

Al Ustad Special Kabab has a mainstay menu of kababs or kebabs. I immediately ordered two portions due to hunger, my order was Joujeh Kabab and mix4. This joujeh kabab is mince mutton with 3 kebabs, prata bread and potatoes, for the mix 4 there are 2 kebabs, 2 chicken, rice and margarine. The price is quite expensive between 25 dirhams to 34 dirhams, but it is comparable to the price of goats in Dubai which is indeed expensive.

The taste of the kebabs is different from those in Indonesia; the kebabs in this restaurant are make from ground mutton; grill and then fry lengthwise. In Indonesia; it is usually just grill and then thinly slice ​​and put into roll prata bread. The kebab looks oily and the mutton tastes a lot, it’s a bit difficult to explain how delicious it is; because the aroma; texture and taste are unique; especially if it’s dip in margarine (they call it yogurt) it’s getting more delicious.

My advice is that if you go to Al Ustad Special Kabab you don’t need to take the chicken because the specialty is Kabab. My regret after going to Al Ustad Special Kabab because I tried this culinary delicacy on the last day before I left for the airport for my return trip, if you know it tastes good, I will definitely come twice.

Dubai Culinary Food And Delights. Every time I make a travel plan, I’m always excited to include a culinary list. Even when I left for Dubai, I was ready with a list of halal culinary delights that I should explore later. Yes, I don’t want to go home traveling, my body becomes thin or looks like I am suffering from backpacker in other countries.

If you have ever gone to Hajj or Umrah, you will definitely know what the taste of Arabic food is like… Sometimes there are some food flavors that don’t match the taste of Indonesians, some in my opinion are bland, sour and some that really make me addicted to it. Pens, right?

Culinary Food at Al Tajaz, Dubai

Al Tajaz is Dubai’s fast food. The menu is not only fried chicken but also Indian-style menus such as chicken bath and chicken tikka complete with biryani rice. Arabic menus such as kebabs, kabsah, and satay. Typical fast food menus such as nuggets, burgers, potatoes and fried chicken.

I tried the Kabsa Al Tajaz menu for 26 dirhams; it contain Kabsa rice, 4 pieces of chicken and a glass of coke. This menu is typical Arabic rice make from brasmati rice boil in a goat / beef broth, he says; is a favorite of Arabs. Then 4 chickens which made me quite full of rich Arabic spices. Yes, it’s similar to kebuli rice which usually uses goat but this uses chicken.

The menu the next day I ordered the tajaz breast combo for 22 dirhams. It contained two prata breads, 4 friend chicken, potatoes and a glass of coke. After a few days of rarely eating fried foods, eating chicken in Tajaz tastes delicious, the spices and aroma are Arabic but still enter my Indonesian tongue. Fast food KFC, Mc D or burger king loses to Tajaz, I really recommend Al Tajaz when I’m in Dubai.

Culinary at Ravi Restaurant

In the land of people, if you are confuse about finding food that matches Indonesian cuisine, you will definitely go to Indian food. Actually I don’t really like Indian cuisine because it’s too strong in spices and the menu is always rich in curry. But even though I don’t like it, Indian cuisine is always the last choice when abroad, like in Dubai I went to Ravi Restaurant which is a Pakistani menu.

In my opinion, Pakistani menu is also not far from the taste of Indian menus. Ravi Restaurant is very well known in Dubai, often cover by magazines and television. Not only local people who come, but tourists who are mostly foreigners meet this restaurant. Also, I usually don’t like Indian-style food until I came twice because it was cheap and the taste matched.

I am still curious about the Chicken Tikka at Ravi Restaurant which is famous to be “Best Chicken Tikka…” in Dubai, finally the next day I return to this restaurant. Order me biryani rice with 8 dirham chicken tikka + 10 dirham biryani rice. Chicken Tikka with a super strong spicy taste, the chicken is fried first then grill. It tastes like chicken satay, but with spices.

My regret at the Ravi restaurant for ordering a typical Dubai salad. I really ordered a vegetable salad with yogurt that many visitors ordered. The taste is really zonk, this super salty yogurt makes me grimace. Apart from choosing the wrong salad menu at Ravi restaurant, in my opinion, it is a must-visit because it is famous and the taste doesn’t disappoint. (Dubai Culinary Food)

Central Java (Indonesia) Legendary Culinary

Cepu Legendary Culinary, Central Java. Cepu, which is known as oil and gas, is a small district. Cepu District is directly adjacent to Padangan District in Bojonegoro, East Java. There are many legendary Cepu culinary delights, but sometimes those in Padangan are often referred to as cepu culinary such as Sate Ayu, Ikan Bakar Klotok and Lesehan Moro Tresno. In this edition, I am specifically discussing the legendary culinary delights in Cepu.

Mak Wing Food Stalls Culinary

It is said that Warung Makan Wing has been established since 1955. The owner is now the 3rd generation. My father-in-law said, it tastes the same, which was a bit different before, but now it’s still delicious. So if you go to the Mak Wing Food Stall, get ready at a high price, for mixed rice between 25k-30k. I even read on Google Reviews that Warung Makan Mak Wing is a joke for the upper class.

Although it is expensive, the taste of mixed rice and tamarind rice is indeed delicious. A portion of mixed rice consists of yellow noodles, pickles + potatoes, and beef krengsengan. The tamarind is also very fresh. At that time I bought it to take home, then wrapped it in banana leaves.

The Legendary Culinary of Nasi Pecel Bu Ratno

The location of Nasi Pecel Bu Ratno, which has been around since 1998, is somewhat unique. If you take a car, you have to get off in front of the alley, then walk about 200 meters to arrive at Nasi Pecel Bu Ratno. Yes, exactly in the village complex. If you weren’t a Cepu resident, you wouldn’t know the exact location if you didn’t ask people first.

Nasi Pecel Bu Ratno is one of the culinary references for pecel at night with opening hours from 8pm to 1am. Entering the small shop, you will see an abundance of side dishes. His favorites are in the lungs, beef tripe and his signature tempeh. The price makes you feel moved, for example, pecel rice with lungs, around 17 thousand.

As an East Javanese, what I like about Bu Ratno’s Nasi Pecel is that the pecel has peanut brittle. Yes peanut brittle is mandatory for me because in Cepu the average pecel is not prioritize.

Sredek chicken noodles look like the typical Suroboyo chicken noodles with a blue cart. A portion of sredek chicken noodles consists of yellow noodles, oily brown broth and chopped chicken along with abundant spring onions. This sredek chicken noodle soup tastes sweet, as is the minced chicken. If you are a true East Java person, it will not match the sweet taste, but if you are a Central Java person, that’s fine. For the price of around 10 thousand.

Melaka Culinary Delights. Tangka Lembu, To get to this Soup Tangkak Lembu, I have to take a grab first, the cost from our hotel on Jonker Walk to Sup Tangkak Lembu is RM 7. The Tangkak Lembu soup is my last breakfast menu in Melaka and leaves an impression of being satisfy with the taste.

Tangkak Lembu soup is a halal culinary favor by many local people. It’s not 9:00 in the morning so it’s really suitable for breakfast. The menu choices are beef noodle, mix beef noddle which mixes meat and jerohan such as tripe, mix soup mix with meat, jerohan and meatballs. Each menu can choose yellow noodles or rice noodles.

We all chose the beef soup menu with vermicelli noodles. Our choice was not wrong because the broth was tasty, a stew of meat broth and the meat was soft and thick in size. The broth is clear in color and has a strong soy sauce in the broth, it tends to be sweet and salty. The vermicelli also match the broth perfectly. The proportion of RM 8.5 is pocket-friendly 🙂

Melaka’s Bibik Cendol

Many say that Melaka is hot. It is true that Melaka is scorching hot, it is not wrong if hotel employees say that Melaka residents have their ramen after 3 pm. I was recommended by a hotel employee to taste the typical Melaka Cendol Bibik which is located not far from our hotel Jonker Inn.

This Cendol bibik has the menu for Cendol Original RM 7 and Cendol Durian RM 8. If the appearance is similar to puter ice with shaved ice up to the top of the bowl. It contains red beans, shaved ice is placed on top of it until it mounts, then there is thick coconut milk and brown sugar. The seller then told me that the cendol should be added after the ice melts. The cendol itself is placed in a separate small place.

Because we can’t wait, before the ice melts, the cendol is already put in the bowl. Yes, consequently a lot of water overflows out of the bowl. Either because of the stinging effect of the heat, this cendol taste is truly delicious. Its thick coconut milk that makes it taste salty combined with the sweetness of brown sugar is its trademark. The durian taste also blends into the cendol taste. Anyway, you really have to taste Bibik Cendol if you go to Melaka. (Melaka Culinary Delights)

The best Restaurant in Melaka. What’s the meaning of a vacation without culinary delights, especially with an alibi while on vacation so you have to try typical but halal culinary. One of the places that have become my target is halal culinary in Melaka. As a city that was once a Portuguese colony, this area has many non-Muslim religions. One of the challenges is finding halal culinary in Melaka.

In fact, there are still a lot of halal culinary in Melaka. So, the best culinary restaurant that I taste in Melaka is:

Pak Putra Restaurant; The Best Restaurant in Melaka

When I was in Melaka, I stayed right in the Jonker Walk area which is famous for its Night Market. Pak Putra Restaurant is located about 300 meters walk out of the Jonker Walk. At that time I used GPS assistance and arrived at this restaurant easily.

As a restaurant that has become a “jujugan” for culinary lovers in Melaka, if you go to Pak Putra Restaurant you have to wait patiently in line. About 15 minutes I just got a seat in the outdoor area which is the target of many people.

actually I am not a lover of Indian cuisine, and often avoid Indian cuisine because I think it has too much spice. But because many have recommended it, I finally became curious.

The Menu in this restaurant

I ordered a menu of 2 Tandoori Chicken, 2 Briyani Rice, 2 Naan Bread, Butter Chicken and Nasi Lemak for a total of around RM 50. In my opinion the price is affordable because the proportioned tandoori chicken which is priced at RM 11 consists of 2 medium sized pieces of chicken that can accommodate 2 people .

Tandoori Chicken tastes similar to grilled chicken but the recipe and aroma is typical of Indian cuisine. Yes, I admit it tastes good and soft. I see the cook burnt in the stove.

The Butter Chicken for RM 12 also tastes good, consisting of tandoori chicken which is cut into pieces but the seasoning is rich in butter. Naan bread which is India’s mainstay is also really soft, especially dipped in the curry spices. Each briyani rice also gets a curry soup for complement. The point is you won’t regret culinary delights at Pak Putra Restaurant Melaka.
