Indonesian Food Bazaar on Sat, May 18

geckoFeet Apr 30, 2013 05:36 PM

Just got word of an Indonesian Food Bazaar at a church in Forest Hills on May 18 from 12 to 3. Don't know any more about it than that. This is not the monthly food bazaar at the mosque, obviously. The flyer has pretty pictures: http://dustyfeet.com/Indonesian_Food_...

    Yesterday I received a menu of sorts, more like a list-in-progress of 80+ items expected to be served across a dozen tables. My short list of dishes to try:

    Lumpia Semarang – spring rolls w/ bamboo shoots filling
    Bakcang ayam – Peranakan’s sticky rice w/ chicken & mushroom filling
    Lalampa – grilled sticky rice stuffed with spicy minced fish
    Ngo hiang babi – Peranakan’s fried ground pork wrapped in a thin dough
    Ngo hiang udang - Peranakan’s fried ground shrimp roll
    Sate Padang – beef & tongue satay with Padangnese special gravy
    Tahu campur Lamongan – tofu, beef, and cassava fritter with shrimp paste flavored gravy (traditional Lamongan, East Java dish)
    Nasi liwet Solo – Solo style coconut rice w/ chicken & spicy chayote curry
    Kue ku rasa pandan – steamed rice cake stuffed with mung beans
    Serabi kuah santan durian – rice pancake + coconut milk & durian gravy

      Hah - you won't get the pork dishes at the mosque or, I guess, any of the peranakan dishes (= Indonesian of Chinese descent). Just a warning that the Sate Padang at the mosque is all beef muscle, no tongue or offal, which it's supposed to be. At least one of the cooks will be the same as at the mosque, but I don't know what she'll be making.

      Nice list!

        The sate Padang I had at the mosque at the final iteration last summer was made with tongue. They weren't there last month.

          That sate vendor is actually working a split table, one of several; his or her tablemate will be serving nasi goreng babat (tripe fried rice) as well as Coffee Domba from Bali.

        There will be traditional, peranakan & dutch influence Indonesian food. Some pork & offal dishes will be available too.
