Have you ever tried Indonesian snacks? Visiting Indonesia last year was really life-changing for me. I fell hard for the culture, the people, and the food.
I hope I will be able to visit again one day, especially because I feel like I have seen so little of this breathtakingly beautiful country. We traveled many miles when we were there, but I don’t think people realize how large the country really is. If I do get the chance to go back, I will not miss Bali next time!
I know not everyone can afford to travel to the other side of the world to experience other cultures first hand. Fortunately, we can still enjoy recipes from other cultures and at least get a taste for what the food is like there.
The best way to start trying food from another culture is through snacking. There are plenty of amazing Indonesian snacks that will make you want to dive deeper into the cuisine.
While some of the main dishes will be a bit harder to create, snacks are pretty simple. You can also impress friends and family with your international culinary skills. Who knew you were so talented?
