When in Indonesia, Eat Nasi Goreng Special

You cannot travel to Indonesia and NOT try their national dish, the famous Nasi Goreng. While Indonesian cuisine is packed, with various regional culinary traditions, this one-dish sums it all up. The “Nasi Goreng Special,” is known as, “Pakai Telur” in Indonesia and it comes with an added fried egg. This healthy dish is packed, with veggies, meat, fried rice, fresh chilli, coriander, garlic and ginger. Customarily, Nasi Goreng is cooked in seed oils, and is spiced, with caramelised, sweet soy Kecap Manis sauce. In addition, this deliciously aromatic and earthy dish gets its nutrition from other ingredients such as shallot, shrimp paste, eggs, prawns skewers and/or salted dried fish. I was in Nusa Lembongan when I tried my hands on the Indonesian Special Nasi Goreng.

I got served, a satisfying meal which included, an inverted bowl of stir-fried rice, fried chicken, prawn crackers, Chicken satay, encrusted with peanut sauce and a topping of fried egg. (I am sure they also have a vegetarian alternative for those who’d like their meal, meat-free) Although, what truly made my lunch “SPECIAL” was the picturesque backdrop boasting several small boats/yachts and luxury cruises floating over the translucent waters of Lembongan. Nusa Lembongan is hot, even in December and so it was essential to pair my meal with a cold coffee. The deliciously cold coffee skidded down my throat like a cool treacle, settling all the great food inside my stomach.
