My First Oxtail Soup

Usually, I never want to eat beef except the meat part. I feel like disgusting to eat like beef heart, brain, tongue, testicle (yuck!), and you-know-what part of meat of cow. But yesterday, I tried to eat a bowl of oxtail soup. I've never tried it before though it's very muchos popular in Indonesia.

My friend and I were confused about what did we want to eat. First we wanted to eat Raffel's, it sells yummy burgers and sandwiches and also best iced tea in Jakarta (really!). But we like, oh my god, Raffel's again, Raffel's again. Suddenly my friend remembered about the oxtail soup. She wanted to try it. Okay, so I told her I've never eat oxtail soup, but I knew that the place where we want to eat is really well-known because of its oxtail soup.

My mom said oxtail soup from Hotel Borobudur has been really famous even since 80s. Until today. Really amazing. My friend also wanted to prove what my mom said. So I ordered oxtail soup size small and iced peppermint tea. Aji also ordered same meal.

When I go to Pacific Place, I always see someone or two bringing box that written there Sop Buntut Bogor Cafe. And yesterday I tried that. Bogor Cafe is the name of restaurant in Hotel Borobudur which sells the oxtail soup but now it has a branch in Pacific Place. I thought a bowl of soup will cost me about 50K IDR, ahahaha but! The small one costs 78K IDR. Expensivooo for meee! The legendary, the big size one price is 108K IDR.

The menu. 
Oxtail soup. Small. 
And the rice and the emping. 
Iced teaaa~
It tastes like... soup. I also ate the beef fat, actually I don't like it ewwww. Delicious but for me not so special lah. Very confused why these oxtail soups very famous eh. My friend said that it was delicious compared to another oxtail soups. My mom said that if we buy in Hotel Borobudur would be more tasty because the pan, cooking wares has long been used so the fat from the pan will make the soup will be more tasteful, wehehehe!

When my friend asked me, "Will you eat here again?"
I only could answer, "Maybe, if I come again with my mom or someone who will pay the bill, ahahaha."
