Homemaker Sells Epic Indonesian Rice Dish, Zhu Houren & Family Are Fans
Nasi tumpeng is somewhat like nasi ambeng, but grander. Zhu Houren’s wife had one for her birthday.
Fans of traditional Indonesian food, you’re in for a treat. There’s a new home-based business and its nasi tumpeng (“cone-shaped rice” in Bahasa Indonesia), a large cone-shaped rice platter with side dishes of meat and vegetables, is not only yummy, but also impossibly grand-looking. It is pretty much like nasi ambeng with similar offerings, but more elaborate and often eaten during special occasions in Central Java.
In addition to the typical cone shape, House of Nasi Tumpeng also creates them in unique designs for special occasions, like this Singapore flag tumpeng, complete with five stars and crescent, which was made specially for actor Zhu Houren’s Indonesian-Chinese wife, Vera Hanitijio, for her birthday.
