    Indonesian STREET FOOD tour in Padang, Indonesia, the BEST street food In Indonesia, it’s all incredibly delicious! In this Indonesian street food tour vlog, We’re traveling deep into the heart of Padang, the birthplace of Indonesia’s best and most famous food, the Nasi Padang.
    After our full on Jakarta street food tour vlog, and after we sampled our first Nasi Padang in Jakartas streets, we knew that we NEEDED to fly to Padang to taste the real thing. This was just too good not to travel for! You can travel with us through this street food tour video and try a ton of different flavors and spicy recipes all from the streets of Padang, Indonesia!
    I really want to give a huge thank you to everyone that helped us find these street food locations throughout Indonesia. We’ve pinned all the street food spots on a map here, so if you’re traveling around Indonesia and don’t know where to eat, you can go to a few of the pins.
    After traveling around eating street food in Indonesia for a month, we found the people to be so friendly and the food to be off the charts delicious, most definitely some of the best street food in Asia we’ve ever had! Indonesian street food is so good you should fly here just to eat it! Since we travel for street food around the world, collecting these memories and street food experiences for you to watch, you definitely need to check out our whole Indonesia series, some of the best food ever!
    Our Jakarta, Indonesia street food tour:

Over the next few years, I'm going to travel around the world and document as much food as I can for you! I love delicious food!

    We had amazing day in Padang, eating super delicious street food, seafood feasts, and of course, Nasi Padang. I would love to hear from you in the comments below after you’ve watched the vid. It’s nice to hear your thoughts on the video and what you liked or didn’t like. Was this one too short or too long? Sometimes I’m not sure whether I should add every single flavour description, especially when there’s 20+ dishes on the table, so I try to summarize the huge selection of flavours. Let me know what you think. And thanks so much for watching! We are in China now, planning out our next trip, probably going back to India! I can’t wait to share with you more and more street food videos!

    The rice cake is called ketupat, not lontong. Ketupat is shaped rhomboid and wrapped with coconut leaves. Lontong is shaped cylindrical and wrapped with banana leaves. The taste is pretty much indistinguishable though.

    (I think the reason they put on the candles while you're having your meal in the midday is to shoo away the flies, not for romantic reason :D)
