Filipus Verdi Danutirto Tanu is my name, but simply call me Verdi. 

I'm a Medical Student at Universitas Kristen Krida Wacana (UKRIDA) , to be a doctor is my goal and it takes a hard-way but I just enjoy it, because when you enjoy something you'll love to do it and never quit whenever you feel so down. So everyday, I'm a student who study, study and study when suddenly I find another passion in me, and that's FOOD !

I Love Food and everybody need food...

I like travelling with my family just for food, we often ride a culinary trip and I really love it, that's why some of my friends always asking me for the food recommendation, rather than just by telling them directly, how about if I share my experience and luckily I found Openrice.com, not found actually but my cousin (whose become food blogger too, named: FOODLIBERATOR ) told me that and I really interested and start writing a short review.

Until someday..

I join Openrice Gathering at Comic Cafe Epicentrum and that's the first time I write a long review with detail description about food and I really enjoy it. I'm the one who loves photography too and someday I share my review with a photo taken with my Canon DSLR and I realized..... This is my passion, yap passion in food, photography and writing. So instead of sharing my culinary experience at Openrice.com how about if I make my own blog, Food Blog. Because if I posting in Openrice.com ,it's a little hard to find my review there because there are a lot of reviewer, so it's better if have my own, so everybody just need to open my blog and enjoy the writing :D

And finally...

7th August 2012, I have my own blog about food and a little travel, but still culinary trip. Welcome to my world, this is THE HUNGRY DOCTOR , but from now please don't call me "doc" 'cause I don't even graduate. But for next 4 years, I'll be your doctor ;) I wish I could be a surgeon (even it takes a long time but just enjoy it).

THE HUNGRY DOCTOR will give you a fun culinary journey and I usually ride this food journey with family , friend and my love. So far I have shared story about food place in Jakarta, Bandung, Batam, Bali, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Solo and Singapore. Another place will be add soon :D

I don't care the environment, don't always eat at restaurant, cafe or bistro, I accepted street food too, and I enjoy it, because somehow food street have a great taste with less price. And more love delicious food, great environment and less price too HAHA (I think everbody love it). I like Indonesian and Chinese Cuisine the most.

Now, I also assisted by my own sister Brigitta Veggy Aprilia Tanu she's next top architect in Indonesia, she also love food and travel, mostly travel so she gonna help me to write this travel article, also follow her passion on Instagram @brigittaveggy !

So enjoy my writing and tempting picture in THE HUNGRY DOCTOR. I really like if you left comment in my post and give me an opinion to be a better food blogger. Opinions and recommendation in this Blog is subjective, and it's up to you to agree or disagree hehe. If you curious you can try it by yourself. Enjoy !
