Nasi Goreng with Chicken
-Oksu (Joongang Heights Apts), Seongdong, Seoul, Korea-
According to Wikipedia, nasi goreng is the “national dish of Indonesia.” The name literally means “fried” (goreng) “rice” (nasi) and refers to all manner of fried rice dishes containing various ingredients made in the Indonesian style, also Malaysian.
The nasi goreng is one of the better ready-to-eat meals offered at Costco, although it seems like an odd item to be sold at Costco and at Costco Korea in particular. In the years shopping at Costco in the States, I can’t recall ever seeing anything even remotely like this, so I’m now wondering if this dish is unique to Korean Costcos or perhaps to Costco branches in Asia, wherever they may be.
