The more the day is getting darker, the more there are food tends scattered across the street especially while visiting Paramount modern market at Gading Serpong, South Tangerang. As Tenda Mahkota Cobra offers exotic food consisting of reptile meat, I and my friends dare to experience how they will be served on the plates.
What do you think while staring at the pictures in a glance? Both snake and reptile satays are similar to chicken satays, aren’t they? No wonder that it is scarce for most people to spot any differences between chicken satays and non-chicken satays, I suppose.
The taste? Surprisingly and incredibly delicious! As the satays have succulent and chewy meat textures (similar to chicken satays texture) combined with peanut sauce, thick soy sauce, and shredded fried shallots, they are amazing just the way they are.
How about the other menu – fried chunked iguana? It is worth-trying as the turmeric seasoning is pretty dominant in the dish blended with the iguana flawlessly, letting you to have self-indulgence while having it on your plate.
For me personally, I do not really like the ambiance of the tent as it is outside, hot, and mosquito-friendly spot. However, the taste is miraculously delicious as well as the affordable price to have the dishes right on your plate. So, here are my scores:
- Ambiance: 75 / 100
- Food Presentation: 80 / 100
- Taste: 95 / 100
- Services: 85 / 100
- Price: 80 / 100
Unfortunately, I and my friends are not courageous enough to drink the snake’s blood as the perception kept saying that it will have smelly aroma and congeal liquid. (Someday, I will try this drink).
Before heading back to home, I am attracted to have cobra snake ointment that is believed to heal several skin issues including unstoppable pimples. It is only worth IDR 15.000 / pcs. So, for girls who have pimple issues, I suggest you all to buy this.
Last but not least, if you are brave enough to have this menu as your dinner, give a shot to visit the food tend after the sunset as it opens from 6.00 pm until midnight.
