Thus, this morning before 7 am, I was in the Chinatown Jakarta - also known as Glodok, to meet my friend.
My friend brought me to this small alley, then I saw a street vendor of Pioh. First, I thought we were going to buy the Pioh from this vendor but instead of ordering, my friend walked directly inside a small restaurant behind the Pioh's street vendor.
The place looks like an old school restaurant.
I heard that their ice coffee (Kopi Es) is delicious but I didn't give it a try.
There are 3 types of Pioh soup: Pioh Tim (Sea Turtle soup), Pioh Tauco (Sea turtle cooked with fermented soybean) and Pioh Obat (Sea turtle cooked with Chinese herbal medicine)
Preparing the sea turtle meat in the bowls.
Topped with generous of coriander leaves.
The soup is clear, light, briny with the nice aromatic of garlic oil. The sea turtle's meat tasted similar to tender pork and there are parts of the sea turtle that tasted like chewy jelly.
A bowl of Pioh Tim (Sea turtle soup) with a bowl of white rice and Chinese fried bread stick (cakwe/you tiao) plus chili sauce cost Rp. 42.000.
Currency: 1 USD = Rp. 8.500
