Es Podeng

It's been raining almost everyday in Jakarta since last week, even some places are having flood. But then, despite the rainy weather, it doesn't stop me from eating ice cream :)



The ingredients of a "simple" Es Podeng:
- Sago pearls
- Chopped bread
- Avocado
- Indonesian traditional ice cream made from coconut milk

and for the "non-simple" Es Podeng, there'll be additional ingredients of tape (fermented tapioca), coconut and jackfruit.

- Condense milk (chocolate flavour)
- Chocolate sprinkles
- Roasted peanuts



Rp. 5.000 per cup

  3. This looks more of digestive ice cream to me. :D

    I saw this before when I was in Jakarta. But don't dare to try it cause not sure what is it. Will give it a shot next round down there.

  4. email2me: Es podeng is very famous, you can find it on the streets, in the food courts and also in Indonesian restaurants.

    Probably the best way to try it, is from the food courts/ restaurants because it's more "safe aka clean" than the ones on the streets ;)

  10. precious pea: Have you tried avocado juice? It's really yummy :D Next time, when you visit Indonesia, don't forget to give a try!

    Yes! the puppies are running around already, hehehe... and they so adorable and something that is so amazing, we let them free in the house, but they know exactly where "to do their business" on the old newspapers that we put on the floor, without any training :)

    cakebrain: welcome to my blog :) I guess we need the sunshine right now, hehehe

  14. Surprising Malaysians in general not really into eating avocados. But then at RM4-6 for a small one imported from Australia is not a good incentive to start. The juices or shake or ice-cream there is very good. I saw of alot of large local avocados in Bogor roadside market.

  15. 550ml jar of faith: hi.. welcome to my blog :) I agreed with you!

    food for tots: sometimes, it feels too much toppings!Hehehe...

    sc: You definitely must come to Jakarta ;)

    worldwindwos: The avocados in malaysia are imported? Here, avocados is very easily to find in the market.. Oh.. true, a lot of avocados in Bogor roadside, even if you go further to Puncak area :)

    glo: You can try to make it ;)
    For the traditional indonesian ice cream, just substitute it with vanila ice cream, I believe it would still tasted yummy.

  23. The combination of bread, nuts, avocado or tapioca and coconut milk seems so interesting and exotic for a dessert. I love the end result, so colourful.

  24. laveena: Nice colour and also nice taste :) You didn't try it when you were in Jakarta?

  25. Avocado is available in supermarket in Malaysia, but pricey.

    So many different and interesting food stuff in Indonesia. Dunno when i can pay Jakarta a visit :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. chen: ah.. pricey because the avocados are imported. I wonder why Malaysia doesn't plant it by themselves coz' it's must be much cheaper and avocado is really good source for healthiness.

    Hope that you can visit Jakarta someday coz' I would be really happy to meet you and bring you around :)

  27. Oh yes. She would boil cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom in a little water, add the sago until it puffed up, then finish the boil with milk and sugar.
