It's not often that we get to know a community event that is not from our locals. Let alone a secret food bazaar. Why so secretive? Simply because there's no advertisement and this type of event relies heavily on word of mouth.

Now I happened to stumbled upon one. It's an Indonesian cuisine bazaar, vegetarian version. For those who are not familiar, this cuisine mixes herbs and spices like magic. Let's see what's on the menu

1. Savoury dish - Main meal will be sold for approximately $7 to $8. You will find all well known Indonesian specialties from Pempek (Vegetarian Fish Cake), Traditional Vegetarian Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce to all different types of traditional rice and noodle dishes.

2. Dessert - All foodies will be delighted coming across this table. It filled with both sweet and savoury traditional Indonesian delicacy. They only cost between $2 to $4 per serving.

3. Drink - And this is not your ordinary tea and coffee section. It's packed with traditional drinks from various places in Indonesia. Mainly sweet and filled with local fruits or jelly, there are cold and hot variety. It's an ideal replacement for dessert too! They cost around $2 to $4.

All this delicacies, come with economical value. With $10 note, you will get yourself a main meal and a dessert/drink. What's more, you are full with all yummy and guilt-free food.

PS: After seeing those pictures, I have to stress here again, that there's no single soul being harmed in the process of preparing the food (Octo Vegetarian).

I thought vegetarian meant no meat/fish so vegetarian chicken satay sounds strange to me. Otherwise Indonesian food is one of the finest in the world...

It's happening on this Sunday only, 01/07/2012 at 11am to 3pm. This community organizes two bazaars every year. But the dates are slightly different from each. They used to take part in Indonesian Festival at Darling Harbour selling Indonesian vegetarian cuisine.

Haha, what they actually mean is the satay that's made of mushrooms and gluten, giving it a chicken-like texture. It was then cooked with herbs and grilled as in traditional manners. Asian cuisine's approach to vegetarian is not limited to vegetables and tofu.
You have to try it to believe it!
