Vacation 2010 - Bukit Tinggi, Sumatera Barat (Final)
Hehehe...this is my last part of my journey to Padang. At the beginning I was thinking there will be few more part to go and today, I conclude this should me my last and may be summary. I will write more later..
Talking about the food:
1) ketupat padang
You should try ketupat padang (pronounce as ketupek).. Miniang peole love masak lemak and so the ketupek. Not only the kuah kacang but kuah lemak added into it with some keropok as below.
2) Ayam penyek
Taste of ayam penyek here much more better the what has been served in Ayam Penyek rest in Malaysia. Of course lah, taste should be good from where it origin. Here the ayam penyek serve with ulam and spicy sambal ( most spicy I ever had but the taste is so good.. 2 thumbs up!). I tied this Ayam Penyek at Pondok Punck Bendungan. Got pondok2 here for u to eat and here I discover the avocado tree.
3) Nasi Kapau
I am not sure why they call nasi Kapau. But, I know there is 'orang kapau' there. What is kapau means..sorry I donno. Nasi Kapau is serve with nasi putih and mixing with few lauk pauk such as masak lemak nangka and also masak berlado.
See this Uni ( uni menas kak kot!.. ) punya senduk!.. She just stand in the middle and use long senduk to pick the lauk2..
