Coming back from Borobudur Golf Course, Magelang, we stop for lunch at Warung Makan Purnama. The restaurant has special dishes: “Mangut”, which is one of special dishes in Central Java. It’s difficult for me to describe Mangut, but let me say it’s a spicy-yellow-coconut soup poured into variety of smoked-meat, mainly fish or duck.
I picked their specialty, which is catfish. It comes with pecel (Indonesian salad with peanut sauce), and I also ordered side-dish of dried prawns and roasted egg. Gosh, what a combination I picked. It tastes like heaven! The combination of spicy, sweet and salty. Also the soft meat of the catfish is combined with the crunchy form of dried prawns and crackers. I can say it’s one of the best dish I had this year! No kidding.
I’m sure when I visit Jogja again, I’ll visit this place again with my family. Especially Elok, my wife, she’ll love it!!
