    A Warteg Contest? Wanna Win Perkedel Kentang? 

    I see that Now! Jakarta magazine is again holding its annual ‘best dining out’ competition, by which their readers can nominate restaurants, cafes, bars etc., which they consider the finest  in town.



    I append below the link which takes you to it.


    Even the simple act of entering gives you a chance to win a voucher, so why not?

    But whilst there are an enormous range of categories, places offering Thai, Chinese, Italian etc, and of course Indonesian cuisine, and the range includes Live Music Venues, and Sports Bars, there appears to be no separate category of warungs/wartegs.



    Those little eateries could, I suppose, be designated Indonesian restos, but they’re not, really. They’re in a class of their own!

    More  to the point, they probably have more customers than all the other categories put together.

    You can eat your fill of well-cooked and tasty local dishes…



     perkedel kentang, telor puyuh, tempe, tahu, pare and nasi putih –use Google to identify them for yourselves!


    …for under Rp.20,000  – and that includes an iced tea!

    So should I try to stage my own competition for this seemingly neglected but extremely popular group?

    No, not me, because I’d need to nominate my own fave place, and then it would cease to be my sort of place, full of locals at lunchtime but a haven of peace and quiet where I can lounge in the arvo with a book, a cigarette and a Rp.3000 coffee, chatting idly to the owner and staff.

    But some Indonesian blogger should consider the idea!

    Makan Enak Di Warteg! Resep Pare – A New Culinary Joy! 



    Just about to head off to the warteg for a slightly late lunch.

    Although I have long been a fan of that little eatery’s cuisine, the perkadel, tahu, tempe and cap cay, a streak of adventurousness recently motivated me to try pare...



    ….well, not really; the cap cay was all gone when I got there, and my old Mum always urged me to include at least a bit of veg in my meals.

    Since it is my frequent habit to refer to my eating outings, and some of you have no idea what’s on the menu, I figured it was only fair to provide a recipe.

    But you’ll need Google Translate to unlock the secrets. I have absolutely no cooking skills beyond boiling spuds and frying bacon n eggs!
