Rujak Buah – Jakarta, Indonesia

This was my second time having Rujak in Jakarta. I ordered it from the same vendor as Joshua’s office — very nice people and a great deal.

The Rujak (Indonesian spelling) is a traditional fruit and vegetable salad dish from Southeast Asia, commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore.

The dish is mixed sliced fruit and vegetables served with spicy palm sugar dressing. You can pick and choose whatever fruits you want and there are some fruits that are only available in Asia, such as yellow watermelon and jack fruit.

Indonesian Rujak is typically made from fresh ingredients and is a very healthy snack with some spicy dipping sauces. I highly recommend trying it if you ever get the chance.
