Last week we had a chance to celebrate Rama’s 4th birthday with some of the closest family member in a Sundanese Restaurant called Saung Apung. It’s reside in Vila Nusa Indah II, Jl. Campur Sari III blok GG-1 Jatiasih, Bekasi. If you asked why we picked this place, the answer is simple. Good bargain of food, and a fishing spot.
Rama had always love to fish, and with his birthday he wanted to share experience with his cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents about what he love to do. So we invite some of Bowie’s closest family member and mine to join us for lunch in Saung Apung. Since the place is located in a residential area outside Jakarta, we had to become a host slash guide as well for my family since they don’t well reckon Jatiasih’ area.
We did had some delay from waiting for the others to come, but thankfully our reservation was not canceled after an hour late of departure (they have a 3o minutes of arrival upon order terms and condition).
If some of you are familiar with a Sundanese Restaurant, than what I’m about to mentioned below might come as a usual post. But if you haven’t, I might as well share with you the selection of menu that we ordered:
1. Nasi putih (white rice), a must for Indonesian meal
2. Sop Gurame Original and Spicy Gurame Soup (carp soup – original and spicy)
3. Karedok (Sundanese salad with bean paste)
4. Sayur kangkung cah balacan (green veggies)
5. Udang goreng mentega (fried shrimp with butter/margarine)
6. Udang goreng saus padang (fried shrimp with Padang sauce)
7. Ayam kampung bakar bumbu kecap (grilled chicked with soybean sauce)
8. Cumi goreng tepung (coated fried calamari)
9. Otak-otak (fish cake)
10. Tahu goreng (fried tofu)
As for the drinks, the favourite menu in our family are:
1. Mineral water
2. Es kelapa (coconut water and meat with ice)
3. Es jeruk (squeezed orange with ice)
For the birthday cake, Rama picked the Harvest Patissier and Chocolatier’s Red Velvet cake. It’s a yum! and everyone seemed to enjoy it.
I was planning to share with you all some pictures of the location, but I was distracted by socializing with all of the guests and end up with only the pictures of Rama blowing the candle. I hope my post today is not a boring one, and maybe you’ll be interested in trying a Sundanese meal.
Have a happy holiday all!
