|I started in on those beets before remembering I wanted to take a photo of the plate... Worth it!|
I'm not really sure how but I actually managed to convince Alan that we should try Selamat pagi, a Balinese restaurant in Greenpoint that opened several months ago. I've been wanting to try it for a while but he's not a big fan of south-east Asian cuisine. I'm down to try anything, especially when it's reputed to be spicy, so yeah... I started off with a pickle plate which was super awesome. A bit of curry on the cauliflower, can't go wrong with pickled beets and radishes, tasty greens and that super hot chili pepper. Yuuummmmm. Alan was going to go with the steak and eggs but after seeing the table next to us receive the ayam bumbu (crispy chicken, yellow curry, chilies and spices, seasonal greens, sambal tomat, coconut sambal and rice) he changed his order. I got the nasi goreng (bali style fried rice, prawn crackers, cucumbers and a fried egg) which was fine and tasty and whatnot, but man. I definitely did not win in the best entree contest this time around. Ah well, maybe next time. Either way, it was a super yummy meal on a gorgeous late morning and I'll definitely go back soon.
