Indonesia is believed to be the Home of Sate – according to Wikipedia (and so do many Indonesians out there) . I totally agree. Each province definitely has a different variety of satay – either in the usage of ingredients or type of meat.
One more type of dish with overwhelming variety in Indonesia is “Soto” – a type of soup using basic ingredients of kaffir lime leaves, lemon grass and coconut milk. It’s actually a main dish, served with steam rice and chili condiments.
