Another Indonesian food, Nasi Goreng, also made it in the 2nd place. In most Indonesia, Nasi Goreng is cooked with ample amounts of sweet soy sauce that creates a golden brownish color, and the flavor is mildly sweet. Nasi Goreng is a popular staple served by street vendors, warungs, and traveling night hawkers that frequent residential neighborhoods with their wheeled carts. When accompanied by a fried egg, it is sometimes called Nasi Goreng Special. Nasi Goreng has also been considered a national dish of Indonesia with Rendang in 2018.
