Why you should try Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng is just rice, meat, onions and egg. The thing which sets Nasi Goreng apart from other fried rice dishes is the sauce it is made from - Kecap Manis. Kecap Manis is a sweet soy sauce that caramelises the rice when it cooks and makes the rice a beautiful dark brown colour. 

Typically the dish is served with a fried egg, fresh cucumber and tomato (no dressing).
