Visit to Padang is incomplete without trying out the authentic Padang food.
Padang food is famous all over Indonesia and the region – you can find Nasi Padang restaurants in most part of the country. Padang food is well known for its spicy taste and the unique way for it to be served. In any authentic Padang restaurants, the food is served in small portions of various dishes with white rice. Customers dont really have to order what they want since the table will quickly be set with dozens of small dishes filled with highly-flavored foods such as curried fish, fried tempeh, stewed greens, chili eggplant, curried beef liver, fried chicken, sambals and other tid bits like various local crackers/chips. The customers then choose and pay for only what they want from this array of dishes.
