Know Thy Nasi Goreng

Last week, an American food channel described nasi goreng as “resembling fried rice” - and unsurprisingly, this got many Indonesian, Malaysian, and Singaporean netizens up in arms. We discuss the cultural politics of food journalism and how the Internet is giving previously unheard voices the space to reclaim their own food heritage.
