Tukang Nasi Bebek (Duck Rice man)

If you like to eat fried duck and rice, you can give a try this "Nasi Bebek" (Duck Rice) on the street. It's a simple dish but delicious.

Tukang Nasi Uduk (Rice cooked with coconut milk)

I don't really have breakfast in the morning except a cup of coffee but sometimes, out of the blue, I like to have a breakfast :) One of the common breakfast that people in Jakarta (and probably also in other places out of Jakarta) like to eat is Nasi Uduk. So.. What is Nasi Uduk that being sold by those street food vendors? (Note: if you eat Nasi Uduk in a restaurant, they probably will serve the side dishes a bit differently)

Nasi Uduk
White rice steamed with coconut milk, salt, Indonesian bay leaves - daun salam, lemon grass leaves - daun sereh.

Fried shallot

Fried stuff
Tofu, Soy bean cake, Shrimp vegetable fritter - Bakwan

Fried vermicelli with sweet soy sauce

Tofu and boiled egg in sweet soy sauce

sliced soybean caked with sweet soy sauce and fried red chili

Boiled eggs cooked with red chili

Sago Crackers

Peanut chili sauce

So, this is what I asked for my nasi uduk:

First the steamed rice with coconut milk (nasi uduk)
second the fried shallot
third the fried vermicelli
fourth the soybean cake
fifth the fried stuff - Bakwan
and all of this cost me only Rp. 5.000 which is less than US$ 0.75
It's definitely a real full satisfying breakfast ;)
