Indonesia’s vast archipelago supplies us with its aquaculture diversity and its rich resources.
Here are some on the list:
The lobsters were huge. I think it’s a slightly bigger than a whole chicken. Oh, man… it tasted so good! The accompanied several kinds of chili sauces were swelled too! The otak-otak was really big and tasty. I really had the time of my life during the seafood feast *smile*. I was embarassed when they said that only me and one of the guy were still eating – the others already stopped eating. I couldn’t help it *smile*.
Losari Beach (Pantai Losari) is located in front of our hotel (Imperial Aryaduta Hotel) and it used to be the seafood center for people in Makassar.
When I checked in for the flight back to Jakarta I saw many boxes of Surya Restaurant. Later a friend told me that Surya is another seafood restaurant in Makassar and many people bring crabs – one of the restaurant’s specialities – as oleh-oleh (gift). Hm… if I didn’t return that day I’d have the chance to try the crabs from Surya *smile*.
Yeah, Makassar is not only famous for seafood but also coto Makassar, sup konro, markisa, and other local snacks. One of the things that I missed during my visit was that I didn’t have the chance to eat durian.
