Siomay. Think of it as Indonesia’s version of dim sum -- traditional steamed fish dumplings known in China as shaomai. A complete portion comes with a steamed potato, cabbage, egg, and bitter gourd, and is served with a boiled peanut sauce similar to gado-gado. For the less health-inclined, an alternative to siomay is batagor, which is fried instead of steamed.

Sop kambing (mutton soup). If Indonesia ever got cold enough to necessitate a winter stew sop kambing would be even more popular.   A robust soup with a yellow broth full of celery, tomato, and great chunks of goat meat, this dish could make the Campbell’s soup man quiver. Be warned if you have high blood pressure since the dish will heat you up.     Ginger, lime leaf, candlenut and spring onion give it peppery smell that adds to its refreshingly earthy flavor

Lontong sayur. Boiled for hours in coconut leaf casings, the glutinous packed rice cake known as lontong is one of the best vehicles for pairing with thick peanut sauces and curries. It serves as the base for this savory morning favorite, a coconut-milk curry made with young papaya, soy-braised tofu and hard-boiled eggs.   Crushed up krupuk (crackers) add a little crunch to get you going
