In this beginning post, I have to say sorry to BEC for my missed in the previous challenge. In this post, I’ll tell you about my Favorite Indonesian Food. I wrote it for EF Weekly Challenge. If you want to share your own, therefore you could follow BEC’s blog.
According to me, most of people find favorite cuisine from their parents. When you were child, your parents provide you much kinds of food. Then, your favorite food is the one that you want so often. The most delicious!
My favorite is Cumi Masak Hitam.
I love squid so much. My Mom or Dad (he expert in cooking too, just like Mom) could cook squid in many recipes. But, for me, the best one is Cumi Masak Hitam. This food has black gravy come from inkfish (squid’s ink). Some people dislike it because of the color whereas this is delicious to me. I often ask Mom to add more chilly in this cuisine to make it perfect.
The best part of this cuisine placed inside squid’s abdomen. If you were lucky, there will be yummy egg inside (oh, hell, I want it now).
I think, my enjoyment of this cuisine is instilled by its availability in my place. I live in Pantura. You can reach beach and buy fish 10 minutes from my home using motorcycle. Everything that fisherman get from sea sell there: fish, squids, crabs, and oyster. Fish always available everyday. Squids, crabs, or oyster come in certain days. So, when there was no those squids and friends, you can buy fish.
Squids are expensive here, in Solo. So, when I come back home to Jepara, I always ask Dad to buy squids. It’s interesting to go together with him at early morning by riding motorcycle.
If sometimes I miss this squid, I will miss home, Mom, and Dad.
Ha-ha, bad quote! 🙂
Do you like squids too?
