Last night the factory management team I'm visiting treated me to a traditional Indonesian dinner in Jakarta. We ordered a whole feast of dishes with lumpia, noodles, tons of seafood and ... the most ginormous prawns I'd ever seen in my life!
Before ordering the prawns, the factory owner asked if I would be adventurous enough to try one of the restaurant's specialties. Not one to shy away from a culinary challenge (I even ate crocodile last week in Vietnam!), I agreed to try a prawn and it was delicious! Normally, I hate the work involved with de-shelling prawns and twisting off their spiny heads, but I simply went for it and relished the results!
