I have Minang tribe in my blood. Minang is one of the tribe in Indonesia that have delicious foods. Rendang was voted as the most delicious food in the world and often served in big occasions of Minang people. Mostly Minang foods contains chili, red and green, and totally spicy. The taste is the combinations between chili and spices ingredients, and the taste was,,, WOW!
However, I don’t like spicy foods. Since I was a little girl, I don’t like chili taste in my foods. The habit last until high school. That was the time I was trying to put some chili, we called it sambal, in my foods. The reason was simple, my friends challenged me. Yeah, I was cheap back then because the bet was he would pay for my food hehehe.
Since then, I put sambal in my food in any chance. Not every food I eat with sambal. I’m totally choosy. I like sambal made by Mum and Grandmum. In restaurant, I’m a picky person. The decision of putting sambal based on the taste and the appearance. Kinda hard to explain it in words. Right now I don’t have the pictures of sambal I like and sambal I don’t like. It’s all about instinct hehehe.
If I have to choose, I’d rather have my food free from sambal! It’s my nature, yet I have to compromise with taste sometimes hehehe.
