Ramadhan Specials at E&O (Eastern & Oriental) Menara Rajawali Mega Kuningan Jakarta

June 9th, 2016. Time for Ramadhan Specials at one of my favourite restaurant. I went with a bunch of besties. Yup. There were Darius from @whats_up_jakarta, Aline from @alinech, Cindy from @cnlulaby, and Hans & Vania from @eatandtreats. We were having fun with the food at my one of my favourite places to eat. E&O.

STARTERS

Singaporean-Style Rujak 100k

with Soft Shell Crab, Crushed Peanuts, Pineapples, Green Mangoes, Yam Bean Prawn Paste and Tamarind

It’s so good I ate a lot of those soft shell crab hihihi.. I don’t like rujak, but this one was different. Rujak is a mix of everything and every taste. Sweet, sour, salty. In one plate. What could go wrong?

Egg Martabak 70k

with Pickled Acar, Green Chillies and Fish Curry Sauce

Always love egg martabak. The beautifully crispy skin and the fluffy filling. Super addictive. This martabak actually is best eaten hot, even though I had to to eat cold dish because of those taking-photos foodies. LOL.

MAINS

Gulai Ikan – Whole Barramundi 180k

with Asam Potong, Fish Curry Powder, Coriander, Cumin and Coconut Milk

I didn’t like this dish. The skin of the fish was too hard to eat. I prefer the tender one. Sorry Chef. 😦

Ayam Merah – Chicken Simmered in a Rich Tomato Sauce 110k

with Cardamom, Lemongrass and Fresh Mint

This one was tasty with generous chicken chunk. The tomato sauce was fresh and delicious. Enhanced the taste of the chicken. Love the presentation too. It looked so sexy, right?

Kuzi Daging – Boneless Beef Short Ribs 160k

slow-cooked in Chilli, Coriander and Mint, Chutney, Yoghurt, Raisins and Tomatoes

Slow-cooked meat was always my favourite. It was tender and juicy and tasted so good. The unique taste of chutney and yoghurt gave this dish a richer taste.

Chutney is a side dish in the cuisines of the Indian subcontinent that can vary from a tomato relish to a ground peanut garnish or a yoghurt, cucumber and mint dip.

Malaysian Lamb Korma 160k

with Almonds, Green Chillies, Cumin, Coriander, Mint, Coconut Milk and Dates

The korma gave a twist to this lamb. When you mix those spices, you will get a rich dish. It’s very aromatic. The coconut milk added a great texture. Recommended!

DESSERTS

Durian Martabak 60k

with Coconut Ice Cream

Best martabak ever! The martabak was crispy with durian filling. Love the texture of the martabak. And the filling was quite generous. I can taste the durian now, literally. Ugh, I wanna go back there again to eat this dessert. Must go back! It’s a must! Very recommended!

Sago Pudding 60k

with Jackfruit, Dried Coconut and Pandan Jelly

Love the jackfruit. Period.
