Rawon - the black soup
Indonesia is rich of great cuisine as well as interesting herbs and spices. Some of them may look strange for foreigners such as ox tail soup, black shrimp paste, etc.
One of those strange things which you may encouter is this black soup or known as "rawon" in Indonesian. This food is popular in Java island, especially. It's made of meat and cooked with some ingredients in which one of them produces the black color.
You can find this food in Indonesian restaurants or some food stalls. However, I never eat this at a resto because we have good rawon at home like the one in the picture:-)

if you go by 'bemo' (public transports in surabaya), you can tell the driver to drop you off by saying 'kiri, Pak' ('kiri' literally means 'left', while 'Pak' means ' Sir'.) why this expression is used, i think, because we indonesian drive on the left side of the road. if we want to stop our cars, therefore, we should move our car to left side.
