Ultimate Street Food
In my queeste for the perfect fried rice i covered all the countries of south east Asia. From Siam, to Vietnam to Cambodia. More then a dozen Island in the Indonesian archipelago by motorcycle. Second runner up i found finally in Kuala Lumpur on a night market. But the best fried rice ever i encountered on a street corner 32 years ago in Jakarta while a was on a photographic assignment. These days I still make a copy of that great dish in my backyard. Petah beans combined with scrimps and bacon did the trick. The two guys on the eye food coverpage were the silent witnesses. Two great but completely unknown chefs frozen in time.
