Indonesian foods consist of various strong flavour cooking accompanied by nasi (rice). There is a saying in Indonesia that a meal without nasi is not really a meal and this is a philosophy that Indonesians live by; eating nasi goreng (fried rice) for breakfast, and more nasi for lunch and dinner. On the way home to Bandung, we stopped by at Asep Strawberry Restaurant to have nasi liwet for lunch. Nasi liwet is a rice cooked with coconut milk and served with chicken/fish/meat and vegetables.
