Have you heard about Muara Karang?
I live in Jakarta at about two or three years, but I never heard Muara Karang before or I just heard coversation like "Muara Angke near the office building". I only hear not come to that place until my friend invite me to join the lunch at Muara Karang. I am a seafood lover and in my home town I can eat seafood until I feel full but in Jakarta seafood too expensive although eating alone. So I join my friend to lunch together. She said, wear casual mode and don't forget to bring toilet sanitizer cause its not a hangout in the mall.
We go to the Muara Karang by taxi from sunter with the condition I'm very hungry. Its very wasting time when we must find another road cause the road we always through is under construction. Im hungry too much...
Taxi stop in the gate of fish market and I don't know its cause taxi not allowed or the driver did not want to entry the gate. Its normal cause the area is prone to flooding. When we walk to the restaurant we past the flood area. There is a line of restaurant and we decide to choose the best one.
The menu is only for a half of a kilogram or one kilogram and apply for multiply. There is squid, crab, shrimp, and so on. Different from the fist, for vegetable and rice apply for a portion. While we are waiting the meals we eat otak-otak cause we are too hungry until we consume three bowl of otak-otak. Thats a big portion hehe
This is it our order list. Crab, squid, kangkung, rice, coconut and mineral water for each person. The spicy pasta is sambal mangga.
The crab is very delicious, even to eat crab must have an extra power and for the squid its have a smooth texture. We decide to keep silent and enjoy the meals. Oh for the toilet and musholla in that place we can't find a clean toilet and musholla. Tips from me please bring toilet sanitizer or anything that helps you to solve the toilet and musholla problem. FYI we pay only 200K IDR for all meals for three people. Its very cheap right? Cause its not for portion but kilograms. About Jakarta its very cheap and I don't know with other place range. Has another recommendation? Please share...
