My love for a heavy spices food and noodles brings the joy for this food: Mie Aceh (Acehnese Noodles, am I getting it right?). Actually, my favorite Indonesian Cuisine is a lot, but I pick this one as I could eat it so many times in a month. My hubby will say “Amen” for the last sentence, I guess
There are three options of serving this noodles: sauteed, fried, and boiled. I prefer the first one. And whatever the topping is, I always love them. I usually eat it with the pickels to make it fresher and Cucumber Ice (Es Timun) as the beverage. Cucumber Ice here has the role of the alkali to soothe the tummy from the heavy spices. Perfect match!
These two dishes, Mie Aceh and Cucumber Ice, are originally from Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam Province, Indonesia.
And my favorite restaurant for this dish in Jakarta is the famous Seulawah which is located in Benhil. There is another favorite restaurant near my residence, it is in Kayu Manis street or whatever, near Matraman railway. Both restaurants are small and very unpretentious, but they make such a mouthwatering dishes, sluurrp!
Aaah, I can't get enough for just one plate, give me more, please!!
Any other recommended places for this delicacy?
