Fried Tofu With Egg

Place of origin: East Java

Source: Inspired from Warung “Arema” in Pujasera Food Centre, Batam Island – Indonesia


When I was still working in a one of multinational company in Batam Island – Indonesia, I often set off on food to the food centre nearby just to have a quick lunch – dine in or take away. One of my favourite was warung “Arema” which served typical eastern Javanese dishes. The dish will be made accordance to our individual orders. Often while I was waiting, I watched and observed how they cook and what kind of ingredients they used. Now after 4 years I couldn’t help myself to try it myself and at the end I’ve managed to come out with this recipe ;-). I have kept all ingredients in my head but the quantity I’ve decided to suit my taste. The taste is probably not so original as I used to eat at warung “Arema”, because I have problems here to obtain the best quality of main ingredients such as shrimp paste. Nevertheless it worths to try it out and I was really satisfied. At least I have cried for joys or it is perhaps I put so much chillies on it ha ha ha.. Thanks and credit goes to warung “Arema” at Pujasera Batam. Anyway, are you still exist guys??
