One of the restaurant that we can always find at Mall in Indonesia is Istana Mie dan Es. It’s famous with it’s noodle and ice. But, there’s also another food in here.

Just like when I eat there with my friends, at one of their franchise in Armada Town Square, Magelang.

This restaurant has different method of order compare with other common restaurant in Indonesia. In here, we have to pay first then eat and after finished, we just leave. We pay the food, not in cashier, but the waiter / waitress will collect our order and count it in front of us.

If you need change, they will collect your money first then give the change after put it on registry.

Pepper Lunch was created in 1994 by chef and inventor Kunio Ichinose, who wanted to serve quality fast food without hiring a chef. He devised a method using hot metal plates that are heated to 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260 Celsius) by an electromagnetic cooker. The raw meat with vegetables and/or rice are then placed on the plates, where they cook in front of the customer. The meat can be eaten rare or well done, depending on the customer’s preference. The meal is then mixed with a choice of either the special honey brown sauce (Amakuchi) or garlic soy sauce (Karakuchi).

Warung Bajak Laut (1) Muntilan # Central Java – Indonesia

Warung Bajak Laut located at Muntilan City.

If you come from Magelang, then once you entered Muntilan City, you have to turn right in the first intersection then turn right again when you arrive at intersection (main road). Warung Bajak Laut is in the left side.

If you come from Yogyakarta, then after Muntilan Market, Warung Bajak Laut is on the left side.

Warung Bajak Laut, is a famous seafood restaurant. Their business is grown fast. The owner told us, at first they only sell fish with small warung which only has 3 table. But now, the have more than 30 tables with capacity each table is 6-8 people.

My favourite food in here is, Fried Crab with Butter.

The other favourite food is Fried Fish (Kerapu / Dorang) with Green Chili Sauce, Fried Shrimp with Butter, Fried Squid, Roasted Shrimp with Honey Sauce, and many many more.

Try to come earlier from dinner time. Or you will have to wait because the restaurant is always crowded. Even the staff is very organize, but sometimes people make mistake.

The price is $, not too expensive. Only if you order shrimp, it’s for 1 person portion. The shrimp only consist of 4pcs. So, make sure to order more than 1 portion if you come with a big group.
