- n. An Indonesian salad of mixed vegetables dressed with a peanut and coconut milk sauce.
Erec, Jack, and Griffin eyed the bowls of meatball soup that one of the vendors was dishing up, and Melody was drawn to a dish called gado gado, which looked like peanut sauce on a salad with potatoes, eggs, and onions.
But the other half is pure Indonesian, such as sate, nasi goreng and gado gado.
The dishes, which are arrayed in front of you atop a grill and votive candles to keep them warm, range from gado gado (vegetables in a peanut sauce) to ajam roedjak (tender chicken in a coconut broth seasoned with tjabeh, a fiery pepper).
I ordered the chicken satay with gado gado $7 CAD and it was the best chicken satay I’ve ever eaten.
