THE FOODIE

Jakarta is known as The Big Durian. Like its fruity namesake, the city can be divisive. My advice: relax. If you don’t let it frustrate you, Jakarta will amaze you.

Bhinneka tunggal ika (‘unity in diversity’) is Indonesia’s national motto. Jakarta embodies this diversity, attracting people from all over the archipelago, as well as its cultural, linguistic and religious complexity. It’s also a city of contrasts, with high- end malls next to kampung villages.

You can get a sense of the diversity through food. My favourites include rendang (Sumatran curry), soto ayam (chicken soup), sambal (a paste of chillies; sharp, fermented shrimp paste; tangy lime juice; sugar; and salt, all pounded up with mortar and pestle) and spicy Manadonese food if you’re feeling brave.

美食家

雅加達又被稱為「大榴槤,」 跟這種水果一樣,這座城市的事物可以令人又愛。又恨因此我建議旅客放鬆心情,要只 事事處之泰然,自然會被雅加達深深吸引。

印尼人的民族格言是「bhi n n ek a tunggal ika」,亦即「求同存異」之意。雅加達正好將這種多元的特質充分體現,吸引印尼群島各地前的人 來;不同的文化、語言和宗教在此地百花齊,放共冶一爐。因此這裡到處可見各種差異,例如售賣高級貨品的華麗商場旁邊,往往就是一條傳統的kampung小村。

你可以透過美食來體驗當地多的 元文化。我最喜歡的菜式括仁當(蘇門答臘式咖哩) ,印尼式湯雞 soto ayam,味道千變萬化的參巴醬(將多種辣、椒 味道濃發烈的 酵蝦醬、香氣撲鼻的青檸汁,加入鹽和糖,一起進放 研缽內用杵搗碎混和而成) ;如果你勇於嚐,新可挑戰辣度驚人的萬鴉老美。食
