Nasi campur (meaning “mixed rice” in Indonesian) is a dish consisting of white rice along with small portions of a number of other items, usually meats, vegetables, peanuts and eggs. It’s hard to go one block anywhere in Indonesia without coming across a restaurant serving up a delicious plate of this Southeast Asian staple. Because they are cheap (usually under 3 dollars / plate) and fast, nasi campur was our go-to dish when out in Indonesia. See the pictures below to see up close what this favourite dish of ours looks like.
One of our favourite things about Southeast Asia is the abundance of cheap fruit juices! Cheap, tasty and fast, fruit juices can be bought right on the street from a fruit stand for typically under 2 dollars. Our favourite flavors have been mango, watermelon and lime.
Although eating local food in Indonesia is cheap, delicious and usually healthy, we of course find ourselves craving comforts from back home such as pizza, hamburgers, Middle Eastern food and baked goods such as brownies and cakes.
