As winter approaches, let’s warm up with Mie Jakarta’s specialty, noodle soup, Indonesian style. Each bowl of soup is a meal in itself, but we’re in America, so let’s sate ourselves with additional classic Indonesian dishes. If you are what you eat, in the spirit of the election, learn more about our 44th President by tasting the cuisine that fueled his early years.
