About a 10-minute Drive just. Down the river and, this is another very local, restaurant. The temple yak and plus the same catfish, we've, just arrived it's really in the neighborhood you're actually back into the jungle you almost come back into that the plantations, the fruit plantations, and it, looks like it's in somebody's front yard it, really is like in somebody's, home so, they, they have their home the whole compound, and then they open up the line of food again you smell, the temple yeah that durian, ruby, sour, aroma.

I'm really loving the environment, that atmosphere, here it's very very, laid-back. Same, set up. We. Got the temple yak I think, we've got the same fish same fish, the. Back our high. Spike thing I think in English it's called a silver cap so it is a type of cabbage taste, the curry taste the broth and. And, the owner he. Hooked us up with a whole bowl full of just the extra, gravy gravy. No. I think the first step is just to taste, the gravy just to get the whole. Oh. I. Had. A little drop go down under my lap. Yeah. This one is almost really mango you I'm angry like it's mango. E1. Is less than. But. This one it's nice and spicy and this one you can actually feel like the the chili burning your looks a little bit with that that person oh that's, amazing. That, is unbelievably. Good and.
Just, The yellowness, of it look how orange L it is from the turmeric. Yeah. It, is more spicy and that is it's. It really truly is one of the world's greatest flavors, I. Don't, say that lightly it reveals it opens up your tastebuds that you didn't even think you had the skin is part of the highlight of eating this fish because it has a totally different texture to it stick, some of this on to the. Yes. He knew we wanted extra gravy before we even started. But. That gravy goes so well with the right mm-hmm. Like. Liquid. Fermented, durian. Life. Doesn't get better under a mango tree yeah, I. Don't. Know if life to you better than this. This. Is as good as eating gets, sambal. Temple yak. Sticks. To the lid that's a beautiful sign oh my, get that stickiness, of that. Yeah. It. Is not that's, not an aroma for the faint of heart. Just. As I was leaving the buffet line I found the jengkol but I'm gonna dip it into the durian. Some. Balls I don't know if you can dream of a better combination cheers, you guys. Jenko. Jim. Cole Cheers Genco Cheers. Oh. That. One's almost age like cheese and, the jungle is very very, young so. It's a very soft and, chalky. Um. Yeah, you feel the choppiness code in your mouth and then for the Bakar I'm gonna unwrap this this, is the grilled, fish. Oh we got the head you can actually see the the, like the temple yuck starting to ooze who's, out of the packet oh wow. That. Sauce, is so thick it's, like it's like a gem a little. Bit of this. Wow. Oh. Yes, there's all the finger like. It's. Not up it's. Totally okay to lick your fingers yeah. Because. You're you like. The natural human thing to do it let me lick your fingers immediately, it's.

Fruity pulp penis of that tumbler that's unexplainable, delicious. It's polite to lick, your fingers here it's okay okay. There's. A reason they don't have napkins here because. You're gonna want to look you have to lick your fingers no, napkins on the table and. No. Napkins, necessary. Go. With the jankle scoop. Yeah, I mean the deliciousness of this meal is just it's. No exaggeration no. Facial expression, no. Descriptive. Vocabulary. Can, possibly, do the food justice and so most employer, some both employee yeah. Then. I also got some eggplant. Almost. Actually the same texture as durian issues like cluster D like, pudding or, just kind of melt in your mouth, in case a lot of garlic in that tomb. Just. This. Is one of the hardest meals to explain, not. Because of the I mean not only because the, flavor. Is so complex. But. Because it's. So, unbelievably. Good your. Brain cannot process how good it is and cannot, your, taste buds can't, okay. I got it down when, it hits your taste buds your, brain doesn't have the capacity, to explain. How good it tastes and I will leave it at that, and I expected, it to be good because. I love durian I love. Spicy, food but. That like. Blew my expectations. Boy, over.
