Nasi Goreng Jancuk - Surabaya

Buat yang langganan TV kabel, mungkin pernah tahu di TLC ada serial Man vs Food yang seringkali menayangkan Adam Richman makan hidangan yang super banyak atau super pedas. Nah di sini keduanya digabung menjadi Nasi Goreng Jancuk yang super banyak sekaligus super pedas.

Penyajiannya ditaruh di atas wajan dengan alas daun pisang. Pedasnya ampun-ampun karena menggunakan 20 lombok kecil dan masih ditambah sambal dan berbagai rempah. Di dalamnya terdapat potongan daging ayam, udang, telor dan berambang goreng.

If you've seen the Man vs Food show in TLC (Travel and Living Channel) you can watch as Adam Richman devour piles of humongous sized dishes. On that note, here's an Indonesian version of a giant dish. A super hot and spicy fried rice, cooked with 20 bird eye chilli, and mixed with fried shallot, shrimp meat, chicken and fried eggs.

It's placed in a wok, with a banana leave as a base. There's quite a kick from eating it, one of my friend ends up eating only the cracker, because she can't stand sambal / hot sauce. Since she was still hungry, having only ate a measly little krupuk (indonesian for crakcer) we visit another street food vendor in Mulyosari street, Agojas, which will be posted here soon.

Harga menu nasi goreng ini adalah Rp 125.000 termasuk satu pitcher es teh. Karena pedasnya, bakal banyak butuh minum, dan karenanya harap hati-hati kalau ingin menambah minuman. Di sini harga es tehnya sendiri seingat saya lebih dari Rp 100.000,-. Jadi lebih baik pesan lagi satu paket nasi goreng dan es teh kalau ingin nambah minum. Nasi Gorengnya di bungkus saja kalau sudah kekenyangan, lebih ekonomis dibandingkan pesan es teh nya saja.



The price for the dish is Rp 125.000 including a pitcher of ice tea. Be sure to save on the drink, because a pitcher of ice tea alone costs over Rp 100.000,-  if I'm not mistaken. Would be better value if you order another rice and ice tea package and just takeaway the rice if you need another pitcher of ice tea, rather than ordering it alone.
Nasi Goreng Jancuk
Ada kisah tersendiri di balik penamaan Nasi Goreng ini. Alkisah suatu hari chef di hotel ini diminta kawan-kawannya yang juga staf hotel untuk membuat masakan saat mereka kelaparan. Berhubung seharian sudah capek bekerja sang chef sempat misuh-misuh saat membuat. Mungkin karena iseng, sekalian saja dibuat nasi goreng super pedas menggunakan cabe kecil 20 biji dan sambal trasi. Nah alhasil yang makan pun ikut misuh "jancuk pedese!".


There's a whole story behind the naming, first this sadistic lava tasting rice was created when the chef, having labored all day was asked to cook something special for the staffs. Being tired, he mentioned "Jancuk" which is translated as f*ck in English. He then make a fried rice using sambal trasi (a hot sauce made with shrimp paste - trasi) adding a crazy amount of red hot bird eye chilli. This creation ends up being so hot that people who ate it will say "Jancuk pedese!!" or in english, f*cking hot!.

hot hot hot...

Nyam! krupuk feast

yang tersisa hanya lomboknya
What's left is the bird eye chilli
Dari wajannya yang bersih, bisa disimpulkan kita cukup menikmati nasi goreng ini. Rasanya sih tidak istimewa enak, standard saja, hanya saja cukup menyenangkan menikmati kepedesan beramai-ramai dengan teman. Nah sekarang waktunya pulang dan cari segelas besar susu untuk mengurangi rasa pedas di mulut x_x

From the clean wok you can see we did enjoy the fried rice. Not that it's really good, but we did enjoy having it with a group of friend and savouring the hot and spicy taste. Now... where can I get a big glass of milk to ease my tounge...x_x
