I went to Asagaya yesterday to have lunch with To-chan and Reza. When we got there, the "Closed" sign hanged on the door of the restaurant. We thought it was strange, because the door was open, yet the sign showed that it was close. Then, we saw there's someone inside the restaurant, who's cleaning the floor. To-chan went to ask her, and we was right. The restaurant was open. They just forgot to flip the sign from "close" to "open".
The woman who we saw cleaning the room greeted us warmly, and let us inside the restaurant. Latter, we knew that her name is Mrs. Dahlia, and she is the manager of Asagaya.
Because there wasn't any other customer, she could have a long chat with us. She explained the menu to us. About the ingredients and the taste. And she even suggested us the special menu of Asagaya.
Mrs. Dahlia also showed us the ocha powder that was being used in Asagaya. The original ocha, imported directly from Japan.http://pic.twitter.com/vEd2ydWMTL
I just found out that the ocha powder could be consumed just like that, without being brewed first. It tasted like roasted peanuts :9
Reza ordered curry rice, To-chan ordered sakana bento, and I ordered Curry Friend Rice.http://pic.twitter.com/X1YJjRZF47
(Curry Fried Rice)
The curry fried rice taste good. But for me, Asagaya's curry rice is better.
I also ordered okonomiyaki, because Mrs. Dahlia said that their okonomiyaki is way more delicious than Tuan Muda's. It made me curious, because I always think that Tuan Muda's okonomiyaki is the best this far (among okonomiyakis that I've ever eaten).http://pic.twitter.com/DinhTCapFY
And Mrs. Dahlia was right. Asagaya's okonomiyaki is WAY more delicious. Well I don't know, I think it's about taste. It could be different for other people. But for me, I prefer the thin and crispy one, if we talk about okonomiyaki. They also put pineaples inside the dough. It brings certain fresh taste for the okonomiyaki. I love that sensation on my tongue. That's why I prefer Asagaya's than Tuan Muda's.
For the drink, I choosed fiber juice. The fiber juice ingredients are lemon and kiwi. You know, I hate kiwi because of its smell. At first, I didn't want to order fiber juice. But Mrs. Dahlia said that it taste very good. So I took the risk and ordered one. And once again she was right. It tasted so fresh :9 the kiwi's smell didn't exist anymore :3
After finished our dishes, we had a long chat again with Mrs. Dahlia about many things. Then before went home, of course I didn't forget to get my point card stamped. And I was lucky, because I had my card stamped 2 sign at once! \(´▽`)/ 5 more to go, thet I could get free voucher worth Rp 25.000,- x3http://pic.twitter.com/iIcn3OJSPx
Well, that's yesterday's culinary report. I'm very lucky I went to Asagaya yesterday. I learnt many new things about culinary world and many other things from Mrs. Dahlia :3
By the way, I am sick right now :( I catch a cold :(http://pic.twitter.com/AiKtzaD3v3
Look how bad are the bruises on my skin when I got "kerokan" this morning. Kerokan is a traditional way to cure cold by rubbing some cajuput oil or other medical ointment on the skin, and then scratch the surface of the skin with coins. There would be bruises from that action, and we can see how bad is the cold by how red the bruises are. The scratch is to open the pores, so that the wind trapped inside the body could be released. That makes the body lighter.
Because of the cold, I went home earlier today. I've taken the medicine just now. So I think I'm going to stop writting now. Must take enough rest, so tomorrow I can get back to work in a good condition.
