You may have hit the hippest restaurants around town but a visit to Jakarta is not complete till you get a taste of the authentic Indonesian cuisine. Many local dishes in Jakarta are favoured by foodies around the globe. One of which is its famous Nasi Goreng.

Dubbed as Indonesia’s national dish, Nasi Goreng, literally meaning fried rice, is an unassuming dish celebrated by locals and tourists. The dish is typically flavoured with a sweet soy sauce (kecap manis), shallots, garlic, tamarind and chilli, accompanied by egg, chicken or prawns. Now for the best part, Nasi Goreng can be varied with different flavours and ingredients – perfect for leftover dinners!

Fragrant basmati rice is stir-fried with a fusion of aromatic spices, spicy chillies and spring onions, topped with a glorious sunny side up and crunchy peanuts. One word: Yum!
