Firstly, apologies for the sudden disappearance in this blog. I was going back for my holidays to Indonesia and this time round I had to accompany my family to Makassar which is the provincial capital of South Sulawesi.
Then again, I come back weighing 3 kgs extra! So you know how good the food is and what I have in store…
In Makassar, it seems that one chili on the table is not enough. They’ve got 7 different ones and each had their own taste. My favorite would be the one with the basil and mixed with some sort of pickles, it was sour the way I like it.
Fried Ifu mi
Ifu mi is noodles which are fried firstly and then poured with gravy, meat (chicken & prawns in this case) and veggies. The crispy noodle with gravy is simply sensational.
Nasi goreng merah (brown rice)
Tom Yum Goong
Nope. It’s not your ordinary tom yum soup, this one is completely different, it is probably 10x spicier and don’t you just love those kinds of tofu? I have no idea why I prefer those than the usual.
Chicken satay with saus Padang
Saus Padang is—- as expected spicy. It’s very popular for spiciness and it usually comes with seafood such as crab and mussels. However, this one was chicken, it was not as good as the seafood but it was still scrumptious.
Another famous Vietnamese eatery, the most awaited one in fact. We had to eat in Tan Viet Noodle House. Previously, when we came to Cabramatta it was closed since it was Chinese new year.
Presenting, Tan Viet’s glorious fried chicken with tomato rice. The original, finger-licking and awesome goodness of Vietnamese fried chicken that derailed our healthy diets.
We just had to say hello to a couple more pounds due to this day.
Bassim is one out of loads of other Korean restaurants in Strathfield. It stands out because of the unique futuristic-looking interior. The placement of the exhaust pipes looked like cave rocks falling out from the ceiling.
We ordered the Sundubu Jigae to find its taste very warming compared to the cold weather outside.
Marinated So Galbi
The So Galbi was tender and if you mix it with the sauces given it would probably enhance the taste better. The Marinated So Galbi was flavorsome, but it was quite similar to normal marinated beef. It had that sweetness and juicy feel.
Koh-Ya at Neutral Bay is probably still at the top of my list for ox tongue. The ox tongue in Bassim was not as succulent as the one in Koh-Ya. Their chili chicken is rated normal, nothing special really.
Overall, it was just quite a normal visit to a Korean BBQ place. I still preferred the Korean BBQ restaurant I usually visit called Se Joung in Campsie.
