This a small sample of the Indonesian food we were eating just a fortnight ago in Apeldoorn. Seems like only yesterday then it seems like weeks ago. We make some of this stuff here at home but having it cooked in an Indonesian restaurant is far easier. The Emping and Krupuk for instance need deep frying, we ain’t got a deep fryer. The Lontong is weird to the British palate, cold blocks of compressed rice when the rest of the meal is hot? It is nice however, but very filling. The frikandellen were a shock, I hate cauliflower, totally tasteless stuff, but I ate it not to lose face.
Here is a list of the dishes with a brief description, you’ll need to click the image to see it full and see what everything is. Or not. Please yourself 😀
