MENU

NASI GORENG $10

Fried Rice Chefs: Adrian & Corina Tan from Garam Merica Restaurant in South Melbourne Nasi goreng has been called the national dish of Indonesia and voted the second place in CNN International’s ‘World’s 50 Most Delicious Foods’. This dish has no social boundaries; it can be enjoyed in its simplest manifestation from a tin plate at a roadside food cart, or eaten on porcelain in top class restaurants. While most Indonesian households serve it for breakfast, nasi goreng is also a popular choice for late night supper served by street vendors.

The Satay is grilled or barbequed over a wood or charcoal fire, then served with various spicy seasonings. grobak Padi will serve Satay with Lontong, a dish made of compressed rice wrapped inside a banana leaf that is then cut into small cakes as staple food.

BAKSO $10

Meat ball Soup Chef: Johan Arief from The Uleg Restaurant in Sydney Road Bakso (baso) is the Indonesian term for meat balls. Indonesian meat balls are smooth, dense, homogeneous and springy.
