Two days ago we had dinner with several friends at a newly opened restaurant located at Lokasari Complex, Mangga Besar. There’s no obvious signboard in front of the restaurant (there’s an almost similar restaurant called ‘wan li xiang’ something just 2 doors away). From the name ‘Suki’ we knew that this place served suki/hot pot, but they also served Sichuan cuisine (a style of Chinese cuisine originating in Sichuan Province of southwestern China which has an international reputation for being hot and numbing (麻辣), because of the common ingredient : Sichuan peppercorn) There are over 100 choices of fish, chicken, duck, pork, beef, mutton, bird, cooked in Sichuan style. We started by ordering 2 portion of dimsum 15K with Chinese Tea 4K while waiting for our friends to arrive. The meal came accompanied by a bowl of freshly made chilli oil for dipping (not really hot). Then our friends arrived and we start ordering, since none of us can speak “Mandarin” properly, we choose the food using sign languages (pointing at the pictures of food) 😛 And we ordered : 2 prawn herbal soup cooked in bamboo at 68K each, 2 Keong Macan (their specialty) 68K each, Pork parts cooked in special sauce 42K, Spicy Frog 45K, Steamed “ikan kerapu” 158.4K, Kung Pao Chicken 48K, hot & spicy beef 42K, duck soup 55K. All of the meal were delicious (if you like hot and spicy meal) and we really have a good time trying to pick out the “keong macan”, plus several glass of sangria and red wine and chocolate from chocolat factory & royce & pisgor kalimantan from sari rasa, Good friend & good food, it was a heavenly dinner :)
