The other rice dish is plain steamed rice and Nasi Goreng Kampung. A spicy kind of fried rice that resembles of Mother’s home cooking to let the Hotel’s guesses felt comfort & homey while staying and dinning at the hotel. The spices and the hotness of the kampung fried rice is quite kicking with generous ammount of chopped chilies, my Indonesian licking very lovin it!
mie goreng jawa yogyakarta javanese stir fry noodle with kecap manis sweet soy sauce Cerenti Restaurant Grand Zury BSD City Hotel Tangerang
This is Mie Goreng Yogya, a stir fry noodle with kecap manis or Indonesian sweet soy sauce. I recently had 2 Days 3 Night culinary adventure in Yogyakarta and i pretty sure this Mie Goreng Yogya is quite authentic; kids and those who can’t handle spicy food must be lovin. A little bit attention is the amount of oil using to stir fry the the noodle, it’s a little bit oily or greasy for my licking.
rendang daging sapi padang beef rendang curry Cerenti Restaurant Grand Zury BSD City Hotel Tangerang
Beef Rendang Daging from the Sumatra Island, this is the highlight of the whole menu for me, the beef is cooked for 4 hours until the spices and the coconut milk caramelized until dark brown and rich rendang spices. I guess it’s worthed since Chef Roby invited the native rendang cook from the Minangkabau Land in West Sumatrab to get the authenticity of the rendang.  Check Dentist Chef Indonesian Beef Rendang for the authentic recipe.
terik ayam semarang yellow chicken curry Cerenti Restaurant Grand Zury BSD City Hotel Tangerang
 Terik Ayam  from Semarang, a yellowish kind of Opor or thick chicken curry. Terik Ayam is cooked in so rich spices and coconut broth and usually shredded into ieces over nasi uduk or coconut milk enriched steamed rice, but today the chicken cut into individual pieces.

Tunis Genjer Oncom Pedas. Genjer (Limnocharis flava), yellow sawah lettuce  or yellow burr head lettuce is not a common veggies served in a Hotels restaurant bufffet so i appreciate the effort of Chef Roby and team to represent the Indonesian culinary treasure. The tumis genjer is cooked into perfection with nice charred shallots, garlic and green chilli flavour on it.

Ikan Bakar Woku Menado from the Sulawesi Island is a lovely rich spicy dish from Minahasa Descent Culinary.  The fish fillet mixed with rich and spicy seasoning with fragrance kemangi or lemon basil leaves on it. The spices for woku ikan in authentic menado or Minahasa cuisine  is used to be sauteed until a little bit undercooked with pungent raw chilies flavour (local called “langu”) but the Woku ikan by chef roby spices is tad overcooked or sauteed until well done, maybe he adjust the flavour to the common Indonesian licking that didn’t like “langu” flavour. Chef Roby using gindara fish or Pacific black cod fish fillet for this recipe, i wish he used our local fish instead to support our local firsherman. To get the authentic recipe; ypu can check Dentist Chef Ikan Woku Belanga Recipe.

Eating fruits may also reduce the risk of developing cancers, kidney stones and help to decrease bone loss as you age.To get the most benefit out of your five portions of fruits should include a variety of fruits. This is because different fruits contain different combinations of fibres, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, so then you won’t be lack one of them.

Fruit is Nutritious and Damn Delicious!!!

Dietary fiber – Important to help reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes. Also important for proper bowel function.

Why your DENTIST ask you to EAT FRUIT More and More ?

An apple won’t replace your toothbrush, but biting and chewing an fruits stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth, reducing tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria. Eating more fuits also stimulate the growth of teeth, jaw and any musculoskeletal tissues and prevent the teeth malposition and/0r third molar (wisdom teeth) impaction because eating less fiber food (soft food) deteriorate the growth the jaw and made the space of alveolar bone is insufficient for the third molar (wisdom teeth) to erupt.

The Sunpride banana harvest period is divided per block, 1 bunches of bananas that had been wrapped the cut, then hung on the rail, to be brought to the packing house, using rail prevent the banana bruised compare to the conventional method transporting the whole banana comb manually that requires staging the banana comb so then the bottom part of the banana supporting the weight the upper part of the banana and got bruised. The bruised banana skin may not effect the banana flesh inside, but it affect the color of the banana skin into dark black.

Packed with more vitamin C than an equivalent amount of orange, the bright green flesh of the kiwifruit speckled with tiny black seeds adds a dramatic tropical flair to any fruit salad. Kiwi can protect DNA in the nucleus of human cells from oxygen-related damage. Since kiwi contains a variety of flavonoids and carotenoids that have demonstrated antioxidant activity, these phytonutrients in kiwi may be responsible for this DNA protection.

Enjoying just a couple of kiwifruit each day may significantly lower your risk for blood clots and reduce the amount of fats (triglycerides) in your blood, therefore helping to protect cardiovascular health.My father is a diabetic patients, kiwi is a very diabetic friendly fruits because kiwi is in the ‘low’  glycemic index, meaning it does not raise your blood sugar quickly. It has a glycemic load of 4 which means it is safe for diabetics.

Why Eating Apple is Important ?

Have you heard “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, yes you may but what makes this fruit so special? What health benefits are associated with eating apples?

Eating apple could keep Alzheimer’s away and fight the effects of aging on the brain. Apples are good for neurological health. The fruit contains an antioxidant called “quercetin” which reduces cellular death caused by oxidation and inflammation of neurons. Apples also reduce your blood pressure, prevent galstone, detoxify the liver, boost the immume and also avert the hemorrhoid.

I like to eating apple raw or cooked, mostly on dessert, but if you like apple also contain quercetin  that can be used tp tenderize any tough meatjust like pinneaple or papaya.

Why Eating Pear is Important ???

One medium-sized pear contains 5.5 grams of fiber toward your daily goal of 21 to 38 grams. When you eat plenty of fiber, your digestive system works the way it’s supposed to. Fiber helps your body absorb the vitamins and minerals from your food. It also helps prevent and relieve constipation and can keep you from developing painful hemorrhoids as well.

For nutritional reasons, we’re often advised to consume the skins of fruits. However, it’s less often that research provides strong evidence in support of this advice. Recent studies have shown that the skin of pears contains at least three to four times as many phenolic phytonutrients as the flesh. These phytonutrients include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory flavonoids, and potentially anti-cancer phytonutrients like cinnamic acids. The skin of the pear has also been show to contain about half of the pear’s total dietary fiber.

Why eating orang is Important ???

Eating an orange a day is a good idea got thousand of reason why,  they are low in calories but full of nutrients, orange promote clear, healthy skin and can help to lower our risk for many diseases and conditions as part of an overall healthy and varied diet.An orange has over 170 different phytochemicals and more than 60 flavonoids, many of which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and strong antioxidant effects. One orange provides 130 percent of your vitamin C needs for the day!

Oranges also contain thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, selenium and copper. Because of their high vitamin C content (over twice the daily need) oranges are associated with boosting the immune system. Oranges also contain choline, zeaxanthin, and carotenoids. Choline is an important nutrient found in oranges that helps with sleep, muscle movement, learning and memory. Choline also helps to maintain the structure of cellular membranes, aids in the transmission of nerve impulses, assists in the absorption of fat and reduces chronic inflammation. Zeaxanthin and carotenoids have antioxidant effects and have been shown to have an inverse relationship with overall cancer rates and prostate cancer in particular.
