Chili and Crackers, so incomplete without them

I am sure some of you, if not most, are comfortable with eating food as it is.
Steak, fried rice, fried chicken, fried fish, pizza, spaghetti, noodles, seafood, all are as they are and without asking for other condiments.

Indonesian people can eat like that too, BUT they don’t feel complete. They would feel like the food could have been better if something else is added.
So, say hello to the two most looked-for and eaten, chili and crackers.

Chili, very well-known for its spicy taste, has been pleasing the Indonesian’s tongue for centuries. Without it, the food tastes flavorless.
Crackers, very famous for its crispy texture, has always been the complement for any food, especially fried rice.

Noodle, No.1 rice replacement in Indonesia

Compared to American and European countries who are most comfortable with not eating rice and prefer bread, the Indonesian people are very fond with rice. Daily foods, whatever the side dishes are, are incomplete without rice as the main dish. Fried rice or Nasi Goreng (often abbreviated as nas-gor) is the most famous dish that can be made from rice.

So, what happens if there is no rice on the table? The famous replacement was actually a potato. Not fried potato or french fries like what you buy from McD or KFC, but ordinary potatoes. BUT surprisingly, that habit has changed. The most famous replacement is now noodles. It is very popular and well-received by all kinds of people. It comes in many variations of flavors, size, and conveniences. There’s the normal size, big size (1,5 times of the normal size), and there’s noodle that comes with a cup.

Then, there is the most popular noodles, Mi Goreng rendang for the normal size and the Indomie Mi Goreng instant cup noodles for the cup size. Explaining foods by words seems tedious and unnecessary, so see the pictures below.

(See the commercial video too)

 

And here’s the one for the cup size.

Easy, practical, quick, and delicious are everything you get from it. No wonder that the noodles are very famous in Indonesia. Ever thought about investing in one of the companies?
