NasiGoreng

I have previously explained my love of Asian food – and not just the southern, Cantonese food I grew up with. There’s something enticing about the wonderful balance of flavour you’ll find in Asian cuisine and it’s something that’s perfectly encapsulated in Indonesia’s national dish.

Nasi Goreng, unimaginatively, translated directly to “fried rice,” but manages to transcend its simple ingredients to become a taste explosion. It’s more than just fried rice, and more especially than the greasy day-old slop you’d get from just about any Chinese restaurant, or worse still, those awful take out joints. The combination of shallots, garlic, tamarind, chilli and sweet Indonesian soya – ketjap manis – with prawns and chicken and accompanied, usually, with a fried egg is the perfect gastronomic synergy, where the whole truly is more than the sum of its parts.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
