One of my favorite things was being able to eat traditional Indonesian dishes every night. Some things that have been so familiar to me as a kid growing up.
The food is very unique to Indonesia itself, but can be compared to a mix of Indian, Philippine, and Thai food. Lots of sauté, coconut milk, tons of spices & herbs. There are not a lot of milky or buttery desserts as in many Western and European cultures. Most of their desserts are fruit, or coconut milk based.
Cendol is another favorite, coconut milk and brown sugar on the bottom with then little green rice jelly. Bolukukus is like a cupcake, but made from coconut milk.
Form of jello made from coconut milkEs Campur is another favorite-it is basically shave ice with a LOT of condense milk and fresh fruit!
The fruit is quite unique, tastes and textures that wouldn’t be seen anywhere else.
The coffee is world renowned
