Menu: Homemade chicken satay with bumbu kacang, nasi goreng, sambal goreng buncis and sambal balado.

What is satay?  Satay is a grilled meat dish famous throughout Southeast-Asia.  Indonesia is thought to be the true birthplace of satay.  Satay is traditionally served with Bumbu Kacang, which is a fresh peanut sauce, a must for any true satay lover.   Nasi Goreng is the popular Indonesian fried rice dish.  Anyone who has been to Bali, Indonesia would be familiar with Nasi Goreng and probably had it almost every day because it’s everywhere and it's so delicious!  Probably the most famous vegetable recipe in Indonesian cuisine is Sambal Goreng Buncis.  This is a dish made of green beans sautéed in a spicy coconut sauce.   Sambal balado is the most known "chili sauce" in Indonesia.  The chili sauce can be made almost with everything or even for a dipping sauce.  The recipe we are using was inspired by Chef Acuna's mother-in-law who cooks traditional Indonesian dishes on a weekly basis.  Typically sambal balado's recipe is pass down from generation to generation in Indonesia.
