Indonesia - Lunch at Depot Twie Mie Gadjah Mada

Opened in 1974, Depot Twie Mie Gadjah Mada is a Malang favorite for Chinese-Indonesian-style pork noodles.

The noodles here closely approximated wanton noodles (which I'm literally screaming for after a few weeks here in Indonesia. BTW, I'm also hankering for Thai, Indian, French, Italian & Japanese food, but that's another story)

Anyway, I ordered the house special - "Pangsit Mie Ayam Jamur", which was chicken noodles, and came with minced chicken-and-pork meat topping and a couple of poached wanton dumplings. Lovely. Missed the KL-style dark soysauce & sesame oil dressing though - but Chinese-Indonesian palates here seemed to have different emphases: they tend to opt for more oniony, saltier, sweeter flavor, and eschew oyster sauce, black vinegar, sesame oil, etc. A little bowl of clear pork consomme sprinkled with finely chopping scallions was served on the side.

Also ordered some deep-fried "lumpia" (spring rolls) - these surprisingly looked flat rather than cylindrical in shape, stuffed with some meat-based filling which (raised eye-brows) actually tasted more like Aussie Chiko roll filling than anything Chinese. The sweet-sour sauce dip complemented the rolls pretty well though.

The drink was interesting - "Es Kopyor", which was a kind of rose-flavored syrup and coconut juice, with young coconut flesh. Refreshing.
