Meal Time 2 (Jakarta, Indonesia)

I have no idea what this is

Beef Kue-tiau with lots of chili sauce and pickled cucumber

Rujak, an Indonesian specialty: fruit with a spicy peanut sauce

Black pepper beef. While it doesn't sound like it would be Indonesia dish, consider this, where do you think
the famous Spice Islands were.....

Awesome bakeries that serve the best treats. I wish they had bakeries like this at home.

Chewy cream puffs. While not Indonesian, they were worth a mention because they were good.

Soda Gambira (translated into flag soda because it is 'red' and white). Soda water
is mixed with lots of condensed milk and strawberry syrup

Pempek, a specialty from my moms home town of Palembang, Sumatra. It's made from ground fish paste, think meatballs
but with fish. Either steamed or fried. Sound gross, but its really good.

Martabak with curry. Similar to roti.

Otak-otak. Seasoned fish paste wrapped in banana leaf then grilled. Texture is like that
of fishballs you'd get in Chinese noodles.
