Up From the Streets – Part 2

One of the best things about traveling overseas is having the opportunity to learn about other cultures. And of course a large part of any culture is the food.We love Indonesian food. Nasi Goreng (fried rice), Mie Goreng (fried noodles) and so much more – it’s been a culinary joy to be here.

I went to Jakarta to start the paperwork one day before Beth and the kids, and for dinner I wandered over to a restaurant just down the street from the hotel in Jakarta’s Menteng district. We hadn’t been able to eat much Indonesian food yet, so I really wanted to try something different. I was interested in a particular item on the menu:

Usus Goreng Suharti

That is, until I saw the translation just below:

Fried Bowels Suhartis Style

I’m still hoping it was a typo, although for the life of me I can’t figure out what else they may have meant.

    I came to know and love fried bowels in Wisconsin. Actually, they’re boiled and grilled bowels called brats.
