WELCOME TO taste of nusa

Hi, you found my blog, Taste of Nusa. A little short introduction just so you know who’s behind all the stuff you find here.

About Taste of Nusa

Before that, let me explain the meaning behind the word Nusa. Nusa is an Indonesian word that is derived from the Sanskrit language. It means islands and is mainly associated with tanah air or the homeland of Indonesia. Taste of Nusa is a culinary journey that pretty much reflects the authentic delicacies offered by various regional culinary traditions that formed the archipelagic nation of Indonesia.

Although Indonesian food has captivated the interest of many foodies across the world, the country still lacks the culinary credentials it deserves. Considering the enormous geographic and cultural diversity across the archipelagos, it is evident that Indonesian cuisine is rich in variety and taste. I believe that Indonesia has a lot more to offer than the commonly known dishes. My mission here is to help more people get to know Indonesian foods and also introduce less-exposed regional cuisines to a broader audience.
