Wow, Sharrie, you really outdid yourself with the pics for this review.  I need some translation help though because I don't know what any of those Indonesian words mean!  Wouldn't be a problem though, if I ate with you, because you definitely know what to order! ;P

Hahaha... so sorry! Sometimes, one is so used to a language that one forgets others have no clue! That's why the pix! But then again, if you're at the restaurants, the menu will be entirely Indonesian though. So, I guess you'll have to go with me ;-)

Gurame and Rendang are just so delish! Rendang is very similar to the Filipino dish caldereta. Kangkong and kambing is pretty good too. You are making me hungry and making me want to go for Indonesian food tomorrow night.

I haven't had much of a chance to sample Filipino dishes when I was on a short excursion to Cebu just few months ago. Hopefully I'll get another chance anytime soon! Now that I'm in N. America, I kinda miss all those Asian food!

About this food


 Indonesian cuisine reflects the vast variety of people that live on the 6,000 populated islands that make up Indonesia. There is probably not a single "Indonesian" cuisine, but rather, a diversity of regional cuisines influenced by local Indonesian culture and foreign influences.

Throughout its history, Indonesia has been involved in trade due to its location and natural resources. Indonesia’s indigenous techniques and ingredients are influenced by India, the Middle East, China and finally Europe. Spanish and Portuguese traders brought New World produce even before the Dutch came to colonize most of Indonesia. The Indonesian island of Maluku, which is famed as "the Spice Island," also contributed to the introduction of native spices to Indonesian and global cuisine. The cuisine of Eastern Indonesia is similar to Polynesian and Melanesian cuisine.

Sumatran cuisine, for example, often shows its Middle Eastern and Indian influence, featuring curried meat and vegetables, while Javanese cuisine is rather more indigenously developed. Elements of Indonesian Chinese cuisine can be seen in Indonesian cuisine: items such asbakmi (noodles), bakso (meat balls) and lumpia have been completely assimilated.

The most popular dishes that originated in Indonesia are now common across most of Asia. Popular Indonesian dishes such as satay, beef rendang, and sambal are also favored...
