You miss Bali, exotism… Welcome to the club! Before packing your (oops our) luggages, you must stop by Garuda, the unique Indonesian restaurant in Brussels! Yes, sounds exciting, isn’t it? The trip starts in the plate, to warm up our taste buds anesthetized by the cold. Honestly, I didn’t have any idea about the Indonesian food and even more the Sundanese food! After leaving my priori of food monomaniac, I’ve really enjoyed the Sate ayam (chicken sticks with peanuts sauce), very different than the Thai version and the Udang dabu-dabu (grilled scampi with fresh spices). Then I chose the Ikan bawal saus kecap (a fish called Pomfret – looks like a fossil, lol! – grilled with soya sauce): EXCELLENT (picture below)! I’ve also enjoyed the eggs with Balado sauce (picture 3). And surprisingly the food was not too spicy. I didn’t eat any dessert, but for ones addicted to sugar, there were donuts with fried banana flambé… See ya in Bali guys!
