Indonesian Cuisine

Thursday by indra

One of the great things about Jakarta is the variety of cuisine from around the Archipelago. Just to get you started, below we have outlined some of Indonesia's most popular dishes:

Nasi Goreng

Nasi goreng (Indonesian for fried rice). Literally nasi means rice and goreng means fried. The dish is often accompanied by additional items such as a fried egg, fried chicken, satay, vegetables or krupuk (fried crackers / chips made of shrimp or vegetables). In many restaurants, when accompanied by a fried egg, it is sometimes called the nasi goreng special.

Nasi goreng can be eaten at any time of day, and many Indonesians eat nasi goreng for breakfast, often using leftovers from the previous day's dinner. The rice used to make nasi goreng should be cooked ahead of time and left to cool down (so it is not soggy), which is one reason to use rice cooked from the day before.[1] Nasi goreng is a complete meal in itself, but sometimes it is also part of a banquet.

The main ingredients for the plain nasi goreng include pre-cooked rice, soy sauce, garlic, shallot and some spring onions for garnishing. For the special one, add fried egg, a cracker, and slices of raw tomatoes or cucumbers.

Nasi goreng can also be found in restaurants in western countries, such as in Chinese and Indian ones, but with local adaptation (for instances, by adding curry seasoning). In the Netherlands, Indonesian-Chinese restaurants may offer nasi goreng spiced to suit Dutch taste. In The Netherlands and Flanders, the word nasi goreng is often used for any Asian style of fried rice.

Nasi campur

Nasi Campur, literally meaning mixed rice, is a delicious classic Indonesian favorite that consists of rice topped with various meats, vegetables, peanuts, egg and fried-shrimp chips, and it is a staple meal of the country. The Balinese version of mixed rice has several kinds of dishes (grilled tuna, fried tofu, cucumber, spinach, tempe, beef cubes, vegetable curry, corn, chili sauce) on the top. Mixed rice is often sold by street vendors, wrapped in banana leaf.

Mie Goreng

Bakmie means noodles. Variation on Nasi Goreng only this time using egg noodles but not usually served with satay.

Masakan Padang

Indonesia's original fast food, all dishes are precooked and served. You are billed for what you eat. Beef Rendang (beef simmered in coconut curry) is out of this world.

ES Campur

Shaved ice with a variety of seasonal fruits and jellied candies, topped with boiled palm sugar.


Somewhat similar to an omelet, usually filled with minced lamb and vegetables. Often served as an appetizer or accompaniment

Terang Bulan

Literally Full Moon, this dessert is prepared only at night at hawker stands. There are many varieties of this dessert but the chocolate ones are Absolutely sinful.

Satay Kambing

Goat satay. Usually served with a sweet soy sauce, no wedding buffet in Indonesia is complete without this all-time favourite.


Featuring un-ripened fruit, mangoes, apples, pineapple and so on mixed with a thick sweet, sour and HOT sauce that women seem to prefer more than men.

Ayam Goreng

Fried chicken. The Colonel had better watch his backside. Indonesia has several fried chicken emporiums that put paid to KFC.

Soto Ayam

This is Indonesia's version of chicken noodle soup. Almost a meal unto itself.

Sop Buntut

Oxtail soup (with the oxtail). Hearty soup always served with a side of white rice.


Bakso literally means meatballs, made of beef, and served in boiling hot soup with mung bean-thread noodles, green vegetables, shredded cabbage, and various sauces (chili, tomato). This version from Solo has super-sized meatballs, the size of tennis balls. Also known as Bakso Tenis. Bakso is a Chinese-influenced dish, but has become a popular snack throughout Indonesia.


Chili. Since most families have a Sambal recipe passed down from generation to generation (think Korea and Kimchee) there's a good chance that there are more types of Sambal concoctions than there are dialects in Indonesia. Some sweet, some hot, some lethal. All are delicious.

Gudeg Jogja

Young jackfruit and hardboiled egg stew, very sweet. This is usually accompanied by a side of beef skin stew
