Teacher Engagement

There are many things to look forward to as soon as you step foot in Indonesia. Navigating the city with your new colleagues, trying out local cuisines and learning Bahasa Indonesia to converse with locals are just some of the experiences you’ll encounter while teaching with us.

Famous Food You’ll Grow to Love

Indonesia has its fair share of food you may have never come across before. Indonesian cuisine often demonstrates complex flavour acquired from a mixture of certain ingredients and spices, most often described as savory, hot and spicy, and also combining basic tastes such as sweet, salty, sour and sometimes bitter. Here are five foods you might grow to love.

Nasi Goreng (fried rice).

Has been called the national dish of Indonesia (though there are people who will argue with that). This dish is available in just about every restaurant and roadside food stall. With ingredients like - sweet soy sauce, shallots, garlic, tamarind and chili combined with egg, chicken and prawn, you can understand its popularity

Gado Gado.

It's an Indonesian salad of boiled vegetables and hard-boiled eggs served with a peanut sauce dressing. This dish is also popular among vegetarians. It’s delicious! (photo available in the attachment)

Nasi Campur.

Steamed rice served with various pre-cooked dishes - a variety of meats, fish, vegetables and of course spicy sambals. An Indonesian-style smorgasboard would be a way to describe it. Very popular and available in street restaurants (warung tegal) and specialised restaurants.

Also known as Sroto, Tauto and Coto. A traditional soup mainly made up of meat and vegetables with a rich broth. Again, it has also been called the Indonesian national dish and you can find it all over the country.

Sate (or Satay)

It is basically skewered meat and can be made from chicken, beef, or goat. One of the common recipes includes the meat marinated in sweet soy sauce, before being skewered. The skewers of meat are typically grilled on an extremely hot charcoal fire, so the meat cooks quickly while leaving it smoky and juicy.
