Bottle Treasure

Want to take the flavor of Indonesia home with you? Slip a bottle of kecap manis, a thick palm-sugar sweetened soy sauce redolent of molasses, garlic, and star anise, into your suitcase. One of the foundation ingredients in the Indonesian pantry, kecap manis plays a part in many of the country’s most iconic dishes, like char kway teow and nasi goreng, a chili and shrimp-paste fortified version of fried rice. The ABC brand can be found in nearly every market and home kitchen, just look for the bright red and yellow label.
