Street food has a long tradition in Indonesian culture, with a reputation for strong and spicy flavours from a diverse mix of local Indonesian, Chinese and Dutch influences. Many street food dishes in Indonesia are fried, such as a local gorengan (fritters) and nasi goreng. Other famous dishes include rendang and skewered chicken satay. Using our collection of authentic Asian Bases, we have collated some of our favourite interpretations of Indonesian classics.
