Without took so long, i grab my plate, spoon, fork and ready to eat! first dish i'd like to try is the Rendang (stewed beef). I think it is bit salty but it does perfect along with the white rice. Meat sure tender and it cooked well done. The grilled chicken also very good, really tasty and perfect seasoning. Just look at the table really pull up my desire to taste all. There's a various of chicken in different seasoning, dry beef meat, fried beef skin, squid, prawn and of course don't missed the Sambal Hijau (Green Chili).


Then we have Padang skewers, using beef meat. Such a soft texture and tender. Also we have an omelette here in Padang style which is really thick slice of egg.




This is not the end, we are still have The Platter. Basically it is a various of Padang cuisine as well, but it has different presentation. A huge round wooden pan covered up by leaf and consisted by rice with various of dishes.
