Jambi itu panas banget deh! Jadi kalo sore-sore gitu bingung mau ngapain, aku dan Fred suka ngidam makan yang dingin-dingin dan manis. Tapi aku dan Fred itu nggak suka yang terlalu manis. Biasanya kalo beli dessert di luar itu selalu aja kemanisan. Maklum, udah beberapa tahun ini kami mengurangi konsumsi gula, jadi udah terbiasa dengan yang nggak terlalu manis.
Nah, kebetulan aku tau Ice and Bean Jambi dari salah satu temenku, katanya enak dan bahannya 100% natural, tanpa perasa ataupun pewarna, apalagi pengawet.
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?!
