Nasi Goreng

Posted on Updated on

nasi gorengThe fuel that runs the city of Jakarta, contrary to all the blue smoke supporting evidence for it being petroleum products, is Nasi Goreng (fried rice).  Variations on this theme abound but throughout the city from the street stalls to the upmarket pubs and restaurants of Kemang, this dish will appear on the menu.  It fuels the Bajaj drivers, the hawkers, the stockbrokers and surprisingly regularly, foreign product developers.  What you actually get on your plate when you order can vary considerably; chicken, duck, goat, seafood and vegetables have all been spotted in the AIG dinners recently and accompaniments have included prawn crackers, satay sticks, tomatoes and fried eggs.  In all cases it is spicy, tasty and cheap and certainly a dish to remember.
