This is episode 2 of our Indonesian Street Food series. Today we will be showing you the culinary hotspot of Padang in West Sumatra: BUKITTINGGI! We are driving from Padang City, and will be making food stops along the way to sample some delicious Indonesian snacks! This Indonesian road trip was made possible with the help of Roni’s Tours.
Our first stop of the day after Lembah Anai Waterfall was for Sate Padang. We ordered 3 different cuts of beef: lean muscle, heart, and intestine. It was cooked over charcoal and had a smoky aroma. It was served Padang style with a spicy sauce (Rp. 27.000 / USD $1.84 for 6 sticks). We also tried a traditional coconut rice dessert which are wrapped in banana leaves (Rp. 4000 / USD $0.27 each).
We continued toward Bukittinggi stopping for a traditional snack known as Bika. Bika are pastries made of rice flour, palm sugar and coconut, and banana. The cooking process involves placing the uncooked bika into a earthenware pot and then a bowl full of wood fire on top. These bika are SUPER delicious (Rp. 24.000 / USD $1.64 for 4 pieces).
Our next stop was in Bukkittingi. We visited an outdoor food market: Los Lambuang, which is known for Nasi Kapau. Nasi Kapau is similar to Nasi Padang in that the dishes served are Minangkabau. What makes them different is the serving style (to learn more about Nasi Padang, check out our previous episode). The stall we ordered from is called Uni Lis and we ordered Gulai Tambusu (intestines stuffed with egg + tofu served in curry), ayam rendang, dakak dakak (crunchy cassava cubes) as well as sambal (Rp. 48.000 / USD $3.28 per plate).
We went into the city centre to see Bukittinggi’s clocktower and city square. We ordered a soursop and dragonfruit smoothie (Rp. 10.000 / USD $0.68). Our next stop was Sianok Valley, which is a scenic canyon. The cliffs rise up to 150 meters! Our plan was to continue eating after taking in the valley’s views by drone, but we crashed the drone in a bamboo cluster above the cliffs. BIG thank you to Roni and Ujang (of Roni’s Tours) for finding it!
Since we spent all of our time finding the drone, our planned restaurants closed so we resorted to some street food style food! We found a man on the side of the road near Sianok Valley selling some DURIAN! It hits the spot when you are tired and hungry! (Rp. 15.000 / USD $1.02 each)
Stay tuned for the next episode. We will be heading DEEP into Harau Village to experience true Indonesian Kampung cooking! Subscribe and hit the bell icon. Set to “all notifications” so that you don’t miss an episode of our Indonesian series! Thanks for watching!
