(This post is based on visits to the shop's previous incarnation, New Asia Market, with the same phone number but, apparently, different owners.) "Try it with lechon," suggested the label, on "barbecue, grilled and roasted meat, fish, and seafood." I needed a easier party snack for that evening; the Indonesian owners had an idea.
Beside a bowl of Suka Pinakurat spiced coconut vinegar (250 ml.; about $3), fermented in the Philippines, they suggested a bag of fried fish crackers (7 oz.; also about $3). When dipped, the kemplang goreng snapped, crackled, and popped while absorbing trace amounts of spicy vinegar — though the sweetened Suka Pinakurat, if you can find it, might be more appealing to most party-goers.
Also shown: a dense durian-filled cake (200 g.; $3.69), from Indonesia.
