pagi sore (pah-ghee so-reh)

leave a comment »

I had my first Indonesian meal at lunch today. Pagi Sore (morning afternoon in Indonesian) is a short 3 block walk from the office at the PWC building in the Central Business District. It’s a little fancier than most places and is def more expensive then your usual lunch fare. The outside has a newspaper posting that shows the restaurant was named one of the Top 50 in all of Singapore. Sweet!

I started with guyabano juice (that’s what we call it in the Philippines, in English it’s called soursop). Green skin on the outside, sometimes bumpy or scaly, sweet/sour white flesh inside, big black seeds that you spit out. Kinda looks likes the sugar apple’s big, friendly cousin. The juice was yummy – not too sweet with a few pieces of soursop (with seed!) at the bottom. I enjoyed them for dessert.

The awesome thing about work is that since there are so many different ethnicities you can ask someone who’s actually from that country to do all of the ordering. This time around it was Erika, our resident Indonesian (who ps is planning a wedding in Bali!).
