Salted Egg: Is It Really Salty?

First impression captured while hearing the stall’s name is about having a salty sunny side up with white rice beneath. Well, again the imagination turns out differently while seeing the menu itself. The cup is similar to the noodle stall on most Hollywood movies, but you will find several chunked chicken covered with salty egg followed with the sunny side up and white rice. How do you think it will fare?

Nasi Tjandoe: Definitely Makes You ‘Ketjandoean’

Catatan Si Ave

Bazaar week at Pelita Harapan University, Lippo Karawaci is officially over! Abundant food stalls you can visit are mostly dominated by Indonesian typical culinary traits. To open this day 5 journey, we begin with this cutie-innocent iconic girl food stall selling its signature mixed-rice menus starting from special set menu to complete set menu. Tjandoe (old-spelled Indonesian word) or candu actually means addicted. So, no wonder if this word is chosen as the trademark to make its customers get addicted to it. Both menus look sooooo yummy, but only in special menu will you have half-salted egg. As we do not really like salted egg, eventually we have made up our mind of choosing the complete set menu.

Mayo Slimmer: Are You Qrazy Enough?

What comes to our mind while hearing this stall’s name is about healthy, expensive, and exclusive culinary traits such as signature fruit and vegetables. Well, the first impression is suddenly faded away when visiting the stall nearby building D UPH. It is all about Western and Arabian food as well as its signature beverages. I don’t know what a Slimmer is doing opening a Western and Arabian food stall in a bazaar, maybe they will profit from the weight people gain afterwards. For this time, we try its Arabian food named mancheesy, meaning maryam keju susu (why is the name ‘maryam?’ is it because of the founder has the name ‘maryam’ perhaps? Alright..)

This taste good, the outer layer is pan fried until it’s crispy while the inner layer is soft and chewy, like how it should be. Topped with shredded cheese and condensed milk make it more mouthwatering. Great!

The other products we try is Cheese Toast. Thing is, the stall run out of bread so we get 50% discount and get a half toast. The toast is… Well, ordinary. It should contain yummy gooey cheese with additional comfort food bits, but it fails a bit. The cheese is only scattered, not melted a bit, and the sauce are all over the place. The smoked beef tasted veeery great though!

The biggest let down for this stall is that it feels like it’s lacking preparation. The first time we are there it’s barely open when it’s almost lunch time. The second, they are sort on bread while it’s only opening. The food is good if you bear the service.

Products : Cheese toast, maryam, milkshake
Taste : 3/5
Price : 4/5
Afterthought : Do they really intend to open the stall??
