Honestly, it’s a little bit confusing to write next Indonesian Food after Rendang. They are thousands, perhaps millions menu available in Indonesia. Fortunately, some minutes ago I got an inspiration to write one of my most-favorite daily menu. Yup, Nasi Goreng!
Basically, Nasi Goreng is a simple, cheesy menu everybody can cook anytime, anywhere. As you know, nasi or rice is our main food. Even Indonesian would love to say belum makan kalau belum makan nasi (we haven’t eaten yet if we don’t eat rice).
Many doctors or scientists said that too much rice is not healthy, as too much sugar kept by this food.However, I think we just ignore the suggestion (LOL), and keep eating rice every single day (God, give me a hundred years to live!)
Anyway, back to Nasi Goreng Menu! You can find Nasi Goreng menu at every restaurant, cafe and warung in this country. It’s one of the most common menu, instead of bakso, soto and mie ayam.
Nasi Goreng is made of rice (cooked rice) which is fried with some special spices and sauces. Everybody can adjust this menu to taste just like what they want, whether it would be spicy, beefy, dry, or little oily. Nasi Goreng is used to be served with sunny side-up, shrimp, shrimp chips, lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber (acar)
It’s quite mouth-watering, isn’t it? LOL!
If you are wondering if there is any strict rule for cooking Nasi Goreng, the answer is BIG NO! You can add anything you like such as beef, chicken, sausage, scramble eggs, ham, or anything!
If you are questioning me, Is it delicious? I would answer Yes, 100% yummy! Can’t believe it? Check this review, and you’ll be amazed how this food could be one of the yummiest food in this planet! Sorry to say but Hamburger and Sushi have to admit the winner Nasi Goreng from Indonesia as the second champion 🙂
