When you get on a flight from Jakarta to Padang, everyone is bringing back at least three boxes of donuts. Duncan Donuts is a favorite. So what do you bring when you fly from Padang to Jakarta? Rendang, of course. For those of you who don't know, rendang is beef cooked in coconut milk and other spices for hours and eaten with rice. So what if you have friends and relatives who live really far away, craving for your home cooked rendang? Cook up a huge pot and mail it!
We saw this poster at the main post office. How to properly package rendang for shipping. Don't get your hopes up though, we're still working on Step 1.
