Prompt from here.
Well this is something you might not see where you live (although I might not have a clue where you are, but anyway).
Thiiiiiis is called “nasi timbel”.
“Nasi” = “rice”.
“Timbel”… is the name… of… the dish.
I’m a terrible tour guide, but this is one of those rice-with-something dishes you’ll find in Indonesia.
Clockwise, from 12 o’clock:
- lalap (fresh veggies)
- sambal (basically super spicy chillies)
- ayam goreng (fried chicken, but much better than the fast food ones)
- sayur asem (some kind of sweet and sour and spicy soup with pumpkins and nuts and corn cobs and other veggies)
- and in the middle: tofu and tempe (soy products! Don’t we love fried stuff that’s made from soy)
Sit under a ceiling fan, add a glass of sweetened iced tea, and enjoy the heat.
Welcome to Indonesia.
