Indonesian cuisine was influenced by traders from India, the Middle East, China, and, later, Spain and Portugal. The Dutch, who colonized many of the 6,000 islands that make up Indonesia, adapted the buffet eating style of the native peoples, into the famous rijstaffel (or rice table). Sambals and tempeh, an adaptation of tofu, also originated in Indonesia.

Indonesia

Where King Is Rice and Queen Is Spice

Indonesia has one of the world's great cuisines, drawing on influences from around the world. Foreign culinary art is subtly distinguishable in Indonesian cooking, yet each alien ingredient is blended creatively with the islands' own cooking secrets. From soothing coconut to fiery chiles, the flavors of Indonesia will stimulate your tastebuds and your appetite.
