Tempeh Mendoan / Fried Tempeh in Batter



Difficulty Rating : EASY

Tempeh Mendoan / Fried Tempeh in batter is a very popular Indonesian snack and a delicious street food. It is very easy to make and tastes yummy - enak sekali!

Tempeh is made from fermented soy bean and is available chilled or frozen. A crispy batter coats the tempeh, leading to a fantastic contrast of soft & crispy textures when you eat. I fully recommend trying this snack!


Tahu Isi Goreng / Fried Stuffed Tofu



Difficulty Rating : EASY

Tahu Isi / Stuffed Tofu is a traditional Indonesian snack and a very popular street food. It is very easy to make and tastes absolutely delicious.

If you have never tried tofu before, or if you think you dont like tofu, this is the snack you must try as it's almost guaranteed to get you hooked! You can change the filling to suit your taste. The crispy batter coating is great and means this snack is best served fresh.


Nasi Goreng Ayam Special / Special Chicken Fried Rice



Difficulty Rating : EASY

Rice is the most important foodstuff in Indonesia, with most people eating rice every day, multiple times. It is very common for Indonesians to say if they've not eaten rice with a meal, it was simply a snack!

Fried rice (nasi goreng) is a very popular Indonesian dish. There are endless possibilities to mix ingredients to produce the perfect flavour of nasi goreng for you.
