Manado Food: Roa Fish Menu

Manado Food Roa Fish MenuRoa Fish Menu from Manado, North Sulawesi

Yesterday was the first time I tried Manado food at one of the malls in Jakarta. My husband took me to lunch for some of his favorite menus near the office. I took the opportunity to take a shot of my menu. It looks quite simple, but tastes delicious if you are in favorite of hot and spicy food. You may say that this is a trademark of Manado food.

At the center of my menu you can see clockwise from fork and spoon, rice surrounded  by roa fish, papaya flower, sawi and sambal dabu-dabu (a specific Manado chili sauce). I read that roa fish is some kind of flying fish captured from marine environments in North Sulawesi.

Manado food was an interesting experience to my tongue, despite the roa fish which was a little bit too sour for my taste. I liked the cakalang fish menu ordered by my husband much more better or should I say yummy. It resembles this menu here with a different tuna-like fish. Both menus are popular recipes from Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
