Kaledo

found this little restaurant tucked in between traditional stores and marine engine vendors in one of Tarakan's main street, and the sign said "Kaledo-Sop Tulang (bone soup)"... everybody in my car agreed to stop and give it a try... we asked the owner, what kind of bone soup is Kaledo, but turns out that the signage described two different menus... the Sop Tulang was cooked using the bone from around the neck of a cow which is still got meat attached to it (sorry i forgot to snap some picture of it)..
while Kaledo is cooked using the upper thigh bone of the cow which still got a buch of tendons (if i'm not mistaken, i kinda flunk biology in high school..) and bone marrows in them... the soup taste so rich and fresh, i didn't have to add anything at all... they serve it with steamed casavas that replaced rice as carb source... the tendons (Indonesian called it "Kikil") are so tender, i could detached them easily from the bone...
they even serve it with straws so we can reach the marrows, deep down thru the bottom... that's not me doing some silly act to use straws... it really came out from the kitchen like that...

my work-mate Ridho just showing how big the portions of the bone are... he just making some funny face to the picture, the Kikil is so tender... i hope i can post his '54 AJS soon...

i guess this is one of the reasons for my beer (not because of beer..) gut... more scoot stuff after this...

FYI, KALEDO comes from "Kaki Lembu Donggala" (in bahasa, means foot of Donggala's ox). It's originally come from Donggala, an area in Central Sulawesi. So, if any of you had a chance to go to Palu (the capital of Central Sulawesi), you'll be able to find many restos offering kaledo in the menus.
