Padang Food is the cuisine of the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra, Indonesia. It is amongst some of the most popular food in Indonesia, as well as in the South East Asian region. You can easily find Padang Restaurants all around Indonesia, and in neighbouring Malaysia and Singapore as well.
Padang Food is famed for its use of coconut milk (santan) and spicy chili sauce. There are usually three main elements in a Padang Dish : the gulai (curry), lado (chili pepper) and bareh (rice). There are obvious Middle Eastern and Indian influences with the curry sauces in coconut milk, as well as a heavy use of local herbs and spices.
In traditional Padang Restaurants in Indonesia, the dishes are usually cooked once at the beginning of the day, and customers can choose from various dishes which are displayed on stacked plates in the window. There are also dine-in establishments customers do no need to order. Once they are seated, dozens of small plates filled with various dishes are served, stacked on top of each other. The customers can eat what they want from the array, and pay accordingly.
