Eating Breakfast at the Market

6 Jun

I think Indonesian concept of breakfast is basically lunch eaten at an earlier time.  The dish below was one of three we tried that morning….  It is broad rice noodle soup with cubed chicken (marinated in sweet soy sauce and other spices). Adding hot sauce is optional, but the sauce is ubiquitous even at 7:30 AM.

The drink is iced soy milk, but it doesn’t taste like the “westerner’s” soy milk.  It’s lighter and tastes like tofu early in the process.   On the background (in the rectangular plastic container) are some chinese donuts, and in the pink container are fried beef balls or what Indonesian called bakso.  And no, those beef balls are not euphemism…

A lone fish ball… Its compadres were already in my tummy. The logo/writings of this bowl and the other bowl are of MSG brands.
