The vibrant nation of Indonesia offers many attractions for the visitor, and one of these is the distinctive local cuisine. The local culinary traditions offer many delectable dishes for the food lover, and some of the most popular are described below.

Naturally the best known and most popular Indonesian dish is the well-known nasi goreng. This dish consists of well-cooked fried rice combined with other ingredients like eggs, chicken, prawns, goat meat, dried fish or other elements of your personal choice along with vegetables and chilli. For variety make sure to sample mie goreng, which is the same dish prepared with fried noodles instead of rice.

Another local staple is the appealing mie ayam, which is a dish of noodles accompanied by chicken soup and topped with sweetened chicken, dumplings and scallions. Another equally well-known preparation is the savoury bakso, which is Indonesian style meatballs dipped in chicken soup, noodles or rice vermicelli, and garnished with celery, shallots and a special sambal (relish).

For breakfast many Indonesians like to savour the delectable bubur ayam, which is a porridge made from rice, accompanied by pieces of chicken, chopped scallions and shallots fried crisply. Another traditional highlight is nasi uduk, a mouth-watering preparation consisting of rice cooked within coconut milk – creating a distinctive flavour – combined with other local specialties like fried tempe, omelette and crisp crackers.

Meat lovers will be delighted by the delicious sate, a popular snack that consists of meat grilled on skewers, garnished with zesty peanut sauce. Many vendors prepare this specialty on the local streets, creating an irresistible aroma. These amazing Indonesian dishes never fail to delight the taste buds of the visitor.
