Ayam Kosek dan Sayur Asem Betawi at Jalan Haji Mencong, Tangerang

Beberapa hari lalu, aku dan suami tercinta serta Bebi Vendra menikmati makan siang di Warung Ayam Kosek dan Sayur Asem Betawi yang terletak di Jalan Haji Mencong, Tangerang.

A few days back, me and my beloved hubby, also Bebi Vendra, enjoyed lunch at a stall of Ayam Kosek (fried chicken with crumbles) and Sayur Asem Betawi (sour and spicy clear soup), located somewhere in Jalan Haji Mencong, Tangerang.

Banyak menu yang tersedia, namun kami mencoba ayam kosek dan sayur asem. Mereka bilang, ayam koseknya memakai ayam kampung. Memang sih, terasa agak alot. Tapi bumbunya meresap dan kremesnya menambah seru acara makan. Aku dan suamiku sepakat, sambal hijaunya enak. Cukup pedas, namun tidak berlebihan dan halus. Aku bisa melihat, para pekerja didapur selalu menguleg, membuat sambal yang selalu baru untuk disajikan. Sayur asemnya juga terasa segar. Meskipun tampak bening, namun rasanya pelan-pelan menyebarkan rasa pedas di mulut.

A bunch of menus available, but we tried ayam kosek and sayur asem. They said that they are using ayam kampung, a sort of free range chicken. The flesh was very chewy. But the seasoning blended well and the crumbles just add some more texture in our meals. Me and my beloved hubby agreed that we loved the sambal hijau, hot chili sauce made of green chili pepper. Tasted hot enough, but not exaggerating and smooth. I can see the workers in the kitchen always make new chili sauce, each time they are going to serve the meals to the guests. Sayur asem tasted refreshing. Looked very clear, though spreading chili hot tastw all over the palate.

Pernak-pernik serta interior di warung tersebut juga cukup unik. Untuk dua setengah porsi nasi putih, satu porsi sayur asem, dua porsi ayam kosek dan dua gelas teh hangat tawar, kami hanya perlu membayar 34.000 rupiah.

We also enjoy the unique interior of the stall. For two and a half portions of steamed white rice, one portion of sayur asem, two portions of ayam kosek and two glasses of warm tea, we only have to pay IDR 34.000.
