So around the end of May, I was too lazy to go out to get my lunch. So I checked GoFood to see if there's anything interesting to eat. Since I felt like trying new food, I checked under GoFood "Promotions" tab randomly. That's how I encountered this place called "Pesona Katering Nusantara".
The first thing that caught up my attention would be the top banner featuring their promo menu of Nasi Kuning Ayam Geprek. It's like ages since I last eaten one. Plus they're having discount for the particular menu shown on their top banner. So why not?
Not to forget that there's a small photograph on the chef behind the menu. Apparently she's Marsterchef Indonesia for the year 2012. As someone who LOVESSS watching the old Iron Chef Series and food related anime/manga, it's like screaming to me to try this menu. So I asked le bro if he's interested...and sure enough, we ordered them food to try!

A LIL BIT OF SIDE STORY:
When the food arrived, I was kinda disappointed as I ordered 3 different menus: Nasi Kuning Ayam Geprek Sambal Rica (IDR 16k), Nasi Ayam Geprek Sambal Pesona (IDR 19k) and Nasi Ayam Geprek Sambal Mata (IDR 19k) but only 1 menu came.
Yes...2 of Nasi Kuning Ayam Geprek Sambal Rica. ONLY!
Fortunately I was only charged for two of the same item. So I was ok. But somehow I was quite disappointed since I wanted to try all the menu. Not sure if the mistakes was from the driver or the shop...Plus I wasn't told about it before the food arrived to me. Usually if it's out of stock, the driver can give us a buzz before purchasing right? Anyway...what's past is past...So here comes pictures of the food! Hehe...

As you can see from the picture above, it was half eaten by me...LOLOLOLOL!!! Apparently I wasn't expecting it to be really really good...So I didn't even plan to take any picture at all. But that few bites were enough to make me decide to take a picture of it. It was like...whoa...so FLAVOURFUL...So this is the skills of a Masterchef huh?
The yellow rice (Nasi Kuning) sure is tasty...The taste is really strong in a good way. Unlike some other random Nasi Kuning I've eaten. Most of them is just yellow but not nicely flavoured. Not only that, the chicken is crispy on the outside and crispy on the inside too! It matched well with the sambal I'd say. Though too bad the sambal were not in generous amount during the first time I ordered it. But then they gave "Orek Tempe". Yes...the tiny bits that's on top of the yellow rice. It was crunchy and sweet. It was good and pretty sweet. But eaten with the rice it will be less sweet. Overall I was in LOVE~ Thank God the shop was near to my area so it arrived warm which is awesome!
That one time leads to many times and here's another photo...

One thing that I noticed from purchasing over and over again, it felt as if it was done by various different people. One time the portion would be more...at times the portion would be less...And from what you can see above, there's no more "Orek Tempe". I assumed that it was extra from catering order. So that's why during the first time I ordered, I was lucky that they gave some of those extras as promotion or something...
To which leads me to another questions...
|Nasi Kuning Ayam Geprek Sambal Pesona (IDR 20k)|
Tried ordering their Nasi Ayam Geprek Sambal Pesona (IDR 20k) and it came as the picture above. Wasn't it supposed to be red chillis with red onions on top instead of green chillis? Coz from their GoFood picture it was red chillis with red onions. So yeah...Again I'm not sure if this is really their "Sambal Pesona" or an error...LOLOLOLOL...Or does Sambal Pesona means Sambal of the Day??? To which they will randomly choose which sambal to give...It will remain a mystery...
Coz I don't think I will re-order this Sambal Pesona again coz it just doesn't fit well with my taste bud...Hahaha...I can't describe the taste very well since it's been weeks...LOL. All I remembered was the fact that I still prefer their Sambal Rica version BEST! That one is OMEGA LOVE!! I'd eat it over and over again...MUST TRY!!
Though I really wish that they would be more consistent with the taste...Coz somehow I still love that first one best...The one ordered after that were random. Sometimes it tasted like the first time...and sometimes it tasted a lil bit less flavorful. Only abiiiiiiitt. But since I'm so crazy over their Nasi Kuning Ayam Geprek Sambal Rica, I'd really LOVE if they can keep the flavour.
Another downside: I've tried ordering twice for dinner and it turned out less good than when I ordered them for lunch. Not sure if they reheat for the dinner time or what. So I'd recommend ordering during lunch for best first impression!
It's really really REALLLY GOOD I tell you! MUST TRY! Some friend I intro-ed told me that the sambal was spicy. But for me it was not though...So you gotta try it for yourself since I dunno your spicy tolerance level. Just talking about this dish already make me hungry at 1 a.m...LOLOLOL. Am tempted to try their Telur Asin version. Hopefully soon. Despite all the incidents, I'd still would recommend this place. It's so GOODDD!!
Ughh...Ok...guess I shall stop here since there's nothing more I can say beside the word "GOOD" and "TASTY". Truly one of my fave place to go for fried chicken with sambal!~
