Food & Drink
Indonesian cuisine is vibrant, colourful and full of intense flavours thanks to the country’s rich selection of natural produce, fresh herbs and plentiful spices. Influenced by the Arab and Indian traders, Chinese immigrants and Dutch colonialists of its past, the uniqueness of Indonesian cuisine has made it a food-lover’s haven in the region.
Characterised by chilies, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, basil and the indigenous spices such as cloves and nutmeg (historically sought after by traders), the well-known rendang, nasi goreng and satay are among the most popular dishes. No matter what your preference, spicy or sweet, high-end restaurants or street vendors, there are a multitude of mouth-watering Indonesian dishes to sample, from broth-soaked noodles, fiery curries, stir fried dishes to salads.
