{Cultural} Food Art


 Since I post about Japanese Bento earlier, I thought it’s a good timing to introduce Indonesian Tumpeng, the upscale version of bento.

Tumpeng is originated from Indonesia. .  The typical ‘Tumpeng’ has a cone shaped rice, surrounded by dishes, such as fried chickens, potato balls and scrambled eggs. Tumpeng is like a birthday cake in the western culture.  It is served in any celebration, from a grand opening of a store, birthday, baby’s birth or just appreciating of  God’s blessings.

See how others make their Tumpeng.

 After looking at these pictures, I am hungry now. Gotta go.
