Selain Mie Pangsit, kuliner wajib aku di Jambi itu adalah kwetiau. Kwetiau di Jambi itu beda loh dengan kwetiau Medan atau kwetiau Jakarta. Karena kwetiau di Jambi terbuat dari tepung beras, dan bentuknya pun lebih tebal.
Belum banyak tempat makan kwetiau yang aku coba. Tapi diantara tempat-tempat itu (halal maupun non halal), yang paling aku suka itu so far Kwetiau Hance (non halal), atau biasa ada yang nyebut kwetiau Ace atau kwetiau Atek.

It’s been 2 years since the last time I went back home to Jambi, my hometown. It was May 2013, if I recall. I kinda missed it, you know, being at home all day & do nothing. So last week, I made an unplanned trip to Jambi. It was very spontaneous, I swear! I just needed to renew my driving licence and I can’t do it elsewhere but in Jambi (yes it sucks), but at least I got a reason for this impromptu trip!
Going back home after years makes me feel good! Everything suddenly seems to be more interesting that it normally was. I ate a lot of local foods I can hardly find here in Jakarta or Bandung. And… I got to spend so much time with my parents. What could be even better, right?
And by the way, since I’m quite bored with my usual restaurant review posts, I decided to make a post about some of my favorite foods in Jambi, with a list of places of where you can have that particular food. Isn’t is awesome?!
