Nasi Goreng is actually the national dish of Indonesia and is by far the most popular rice dish available with people eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
It consists of fried rice with spices, sambal, egg, chicken or shrimps, and is usually accompanied by krupuk, sate, and a fried egg. It really is a great meal, tasty, satisfying and affordable. There are always slight variations from place to place on how it is served, as well as different degrees of spiciness to keep you on your toes.
