  1. In Indonesia, “Goreng” simply means “fried”. While rice (nasi = rice) is used in Nasi Goreng, noodles are fried in Bami Goreng (Bami = noodles). There are no uniform recipes for both dishes. Vegetables, meat, seafood, sprouts, mushrooms or other vegetables. Everything that tastes good goes into the pan / wok.


  1. The rest (for 2 people) served with a fried egg on the second day! See pictures !
