Sometimes in between lectures, I need to have a quick snack. And when you are in Amsterdam, you have loads of choices for a quick bite. The other day I went to Toko Joyce, a toko (shop) in the centre of Amsterdam. Their frekedel djagung is described on their menu as a “spicy, vegetarian corn fritter”. After ordering it, they put it in the microwave to heat it up. After it is burning hot, you can take it with you to sit outside near a canal or sit in the toko. I cannot recall if the fritter itself was spicy, because I took every bite with the delicious sambal manis (sweet sambal) with it!

Spaghetti at McDonalds in Jakarta

Why oh why would anybody ever eat spaghetti in a McDonalds, let alone in Indonesia where good food is waiting for you at every corner? Well, because I am always curious with food. And since it was really cheap, what could go wrong? To be honest though, I wouldn’t recommend this spaghetti to anybody. At least not if you are expecting something that does not taste like prefabricated spaghetti with a tiny bit of sauce on top. But if that is what you expect, and if you don’t have more than fifty euro cents to spend, this is your thing. Otherwise, don’t take the spaghetti and just stick with the French fries. Or if you are in Indonesia, get some sate kambing.

McFlurry Warna Warni

Not the best taken picture, I agree. But what you see above is one of the two Indonesian variations on the McFlurry. This one is the one that is the most similar to the McFlurry with M&M’s. The name McFlurry Warna Warni means as much as “colourful Mcflurry”. The name is derived from the colourful chocolate “candies” that they mix with vanilla ice.
