Introduction to Indonesian food culture

Because the climate is hot and humid, the seasoning is usually in a spicy way to increase appetite. And like to add the local rich spices. Such as: pepper, cloves, cardamom, etc., and even coconut milk.


Because of religious reasons, when eating with the right hand instead of the left hand, taboos others with the left hand to give them something to eat. Because of religious rules, it is taboo to eat pork food, drink spirits, and do not eat seafood. With bones, dishes with soup and fish maw.


Type of diet: Most Indonesians usually eat rice as their staple food, but in some places they eat corn and sweet potatoes as their staple food.


Indonesians especially like to eat Chinese food, usually eat Western food for breakfast, like to drink black tea, wine, champagne soda and other drinks. I like to eat beef, sheep, fish, chicken and other meats and their offal.


Because there are many freshwater aquaculture industries, there is an abundance of seafood food available. Because all seasons are summer, you can eat tropical and subtropical fruits and vegetables all year round.


Dining etiquette:


When visiting someone else's home, wear clean and tidy clothes and show respect to the elders in the family.


Spitting and nose picking are forbidden taboos.


Compliment the cook on his or her cooking skills during the meal.




Generally speaking, Indonesian food has to do with the climate and the geography of the region. And because most people believe in religion, taboo foods are also deeply affected.


For example, can not eat pork food, spirits, and can not use the left hand, can only use the right hand to pass things.

Matters needing attention

It's a good idea to know local taboos, laws and customs before you go. Indonesia has just introduced a new law that makes it a crime to wear a skirt if your knees are exposed. I don't know if shorts will do, so to be on the safe side, it's best not to wear shorts, that's my advice.


It is impolite to touch people's heads (including children's heads) in Indonesia. And don't use your left hand to hold things when your right hand is convenient, because that is impolite.


When in Rome, do as the Romans do, respect religious habits, most of Indonesia's Islam, do not eat pork and do not drink.
