Indonesian Fav – Nasi Goreng Istimewa

In Eating out, Indonesia, Outside Dubai on March 17, 2012 at 12:28

A really simple but satisfying meal that can be found from the humblest street warung or stall to the very best restaurants with as many variations as there are family recipes. It is, after all, a dish that often makes use of leftover rice, meat, seafood and vegetables.

Nasi goreng, literally meaning “fried rice” in Indonesian, can refer simply to fried pre-cooked rice, a meal including stir fried rice in small amount of cooking oil, typically spiced with kecap manis, shallot, garlic, tamarind and chilli and accompanied with other ingredients, particularly egg, chicken and prawns.

This is found in a food court that is pretty near to the CGK airport but I can’t seem to recall the exact location. A fresh coconut is always a great match for the rice. A most satisfying meal that didn’t cost too much. But personally I would have preferred having the street version but my colleagues were not too keen to risk the streets 😦

  1. Looks great, think I might have to pick up a plate of this the next time I’m in Singapore. Any recommendations for where to get this on the streets?

    • Well u can have a version of this from most of the prata supper places we have in singapore but personally I prefer the version found on the streets in indonesia 🙂

  2. Is that satay with the nasi goreng? Nice!
