Back in Surabaya, and the first meal that I had was this. Green Chilli Ox-Tongue Pasta. Basically your old trusty plain spaghetti tossed in green chilli sauce with chunks of juicy and soft ox-tongue, topped with fried garlic chips. By @pancious.id Surabaya @pancioussby
To accompany this dish, I ordered a glass of lemon tea. JK. It's their Lemon Beer, with Bir Bintang as their base beer and some lemon flavouring. Refreshing and delightful at the same time. It tastes better than @birbintangindonesia 's Lemon Radler, I guess they added some squeeze of lemon juice into the OG Bintang Pilsner, hence the stronger lemon-y flavour.
Pasta was cooked Al Dente, just as I liked it to be done. Spaghetti was my pasta of choice as I don't really like penne or fettuccine, always go for spaghetti. The green chilli sauce has a bit heat from those chillis, but not crazy hot as bird's eye chilli. The heat was just there to remind you this is Indonesia, we love hot and spicy food. The sauce tastes dominantly salty and a tad savoury, the sprinkles of garlic chips on top added a bit of texture and lots of aroma and nuttyness.
The ox-tongue. Not everywhere could I find places that serve chunky ox-tongue, most of them are sliced thinly or a tad thicker. To find the ox-tongues here are diced into chunks, made me happy and fall in love with it over and over again. These chunks were cooked perfectly, not too dry, slightly juicy. Simply elevated the dish to next level. Look at how glorious those ox-tongue chunks on slide 2.
For you who feels like having non-mainstream pasta, this place is worth a visit. They still have some more pasta dishes, classic and fusion.
