Vegan Indonesian Food - 06 Dec 07 16:21

Hi

I'll be moving to Bali soon. Having previously lived in Jakarta over a decade ago, I know it won't be hard to feed myself even though I now do not eat any animal products (no meat, fish, eggs, milk). I used to eat Sate, Dendeng & Rendang by the bucket load, so sticking to the diet with be tough!!

I'm wondering if I need to watch out for or avoid any seemingly vegetarian dishes. I realize dried shrimps tend to be a wide spread ingredient and find their way into chili sauce, etc. Any hints?

THANKS

Eat McDonalds - there is more nourishment in the packing, and no meat.

What are you going to do with the cat ? give it a right good talking to? (BTW) do yourself a favour and do a "Rigsby" on the cat.

Re: Vegan Indonesian Food - 09 Dec 07 05:43

sure, you can fine food that doesn't have meat in it. but i've never come across an indonesian who has unilaterally declared themselves to be vegetarian. (but then, maybe indonesians have the good sense not to try and oppose hundreds of thousands of years of Man's evolution as an omnivore.)

It's more than just not having meat in it though - potentially so much is "contaminated" - the oil having been used to fry chicken for example.

If you are veggie in spirit but won't have a wobble if a bit creeps in then no problem, otherwise you may have to find somewhere very specialized .

I had to laugh a while back at an Indian "client" - in one of his very few forrays out of the compound we went for a meal - I ordered my food , he ordered his. I forget now but I think he had the old favourite Tjap Tjay , I told him I didn't realised that he ate meat - he went a bit green and told me that he had asked in his best Indonesian "ada daging?" to which of course the reply was no - of course it didn't , it had ikan , ikan ayam.

I had an Indian gf a while back. What a nightmare. She was a vegetarian and whenever we travelled out of Jakarta we spent most of your time searching for places she could (or, as the case was, couldn't) eat. Even things like nasi goreng she wouldn't touch because of the oil the kaki lima used.

Vegetarian, didn't eat meat, bet I know why she is an "ex" girlfriend!

It's unusual you know , no matter how much they look like a hairy inverted lightbulb they don't generally go for a bule, particularly a bit of rough.

I went for the Veg option in EP friday, the cheeseburger- seen more meat on a butcher's pencil.

And that Chewwy, totally ignore me - looking like a refugee from the Kray twins. And who is that old bird with the Don King gas explosion hair do? Lens wants to keep that thing under look and key when it isn't on display - frightened the life out of me.

fuck me --- Now they are coming from outside jakarta for an hour of free beer!!! Nice of you to introduce yourself. Think your name should be changed from Capt. Mainwaring to Captain Shadow

Re: Looking for a recipe for Chili con tempe - 20 Jan 08 06:47

Chewwy, I doubt if he had arrived in time for the free beer. If he had, there would no doubt have been a comment about myself, and since I left early I can only presume that you stayed a bit later than normal.

Who's the bird with the Don King hair, I dont think I've seen her!

Re: Looking for a recipe for Chili con tempe - 20 Jan 08 08:15

I didnt stay that long .. although I was sent out for baby formula when I got home and made a real mess of the car! managed to do a substantial amont of damage by driving in to my front gate

Re: Looking for a recipe for Chili con tempe - 20 Jan 08 08:33

You sir are a twat! Bet you wish the gate was still stolen and then this would not have happened.

Moral-Dont drink and drive

Ran into Mrs Chewwy at Bugils bash. She said that Chew was holding the fort. Seems it all went pear shaped. He probably gave the baby booze as well

Wasn't Gripe Water that they used to give babies the equivalent of a double vodka?

Maybe Chew used some Blackadder comedy breasts while the Mrs was out.

Re: Looking for a recipe for Chili con tempe - 20 Jan 08 10:38

holding fort is no problem .. the little one was an absolute angel. I had a night of doing exactly what I wanted (i.e. sitting naked on the sofa drinking beer, watching porn and toying with myself).

Mrs fell through the door at about 3.30am saying that she felt "dizzy" .. 10.30am and she is still in bed!

Someone should make emergency sock ejectors.

Girls can do the sock thing and be sexy as hell... Pretty legs scissoring back and forth, toes pointing and all that stuff. Guys cannot do the sock thing.

Quite right, bules of any distinction don't lurk about for free beer anyhow.
"Don King" is a permanent resident of the middle table - you must know her, mug like Mick McManus and has what looks like a camels chuff piece glued on her head.

Went for the chicken tandori effort which was quite good, and thankfully they seemed to have cleaned their pipes out.

Must say i'm surprised at Chewwy not saying hello - but he was busy. thankfully he didn't choose to submerge his flange in any swimming pools.

Whaddya mean "we" ? I also don't know what you lot of herberts look like either? I'm quite easily frightened you know.

I must admit I though I recognized you but it was difficult to tell with your clothes on.

The tofu will be just fine. A little drop of tempe behind the lug holes too.
