Good morning, Travel Divas!
Welcome once again to our Tuesday Travels Meme. Before I post my entry for this week, let me announce our last week’s winner, drawn by random.org.
And here’s to our week’s entry: Indonesian Street Food called Batagor. We are still on Travel Food, by the way.
Our friends took us to some nice Bandung street food when the hubs and I were in Bandung, Indonesia a couple of months ago.
Batagor (abbreviation from: Bakso Tahu Goreng, Sundanese and Indonesian: “fried bakso and tofu”) is Sundanese Indonesian fried fish dumplings served with peanut sauce. It is traditionally made from tenggiri (wahoo) fish meat. Sometimes other types of seafood such as tuna, mackerel, and prawn also can be used to make batagor. Just like siomay, other complements to batagor are steamed cabbage, potatoes, bitter gourd and tofu. Batagor is cut into bite size pieces and topped with peanut sauce, sweet soy sauce, chili sauce and a dash of lime juice. Because being fried, batagor have crispy and crunchy texture. Since the serving method is identical, today batagor and siomay often sold under one vendor, with batagor offered as variation or addition to siomay. (source: wikipedia.com)
