Talk about home cook food I always be the one who really keen on, its always simple, adaptable and of course delicious !
I have one thing in common about home cook food, its memorable ! no matter where we are in the present day, home cook food is all time favourite.

Well, my home cooking this time is very warung’ish and its traditionally humble, sambal terong bakar,who can resist ? I cant ! it smell of chargrilled flesh so earthy …
Perhaps the looks doesn’t make you trickle, forget the looks but the taste, in other words : more taste than the looks :)
