Nasi Kapau

Kapau true is the name of a 'kenagarian' (village) in the District Tilatang Kamang, Agam regency, West Sumatra. Like every village in Minangkabau, almost nothing special with Kapau if we see villages, natural bersawah fields, people who are generally farmers, some merchants, a small proportion of civil servants. But the name has gone very thanks Kapau Kapau rice.

What exactly is so special about a dish that is popularly known that took the name of the seller's original hometown? Kapau very typical curry with kunyitnya very dominant color, with savory and spicy flavors. Vegetable curry Kapau consists of pieces of young jackfruit, bamboo shoots, cabbage, ferns, green beans, jengkol in the not too thick sauce (not too much coconut milk) yellow (saffron) red (cayenne). What is also very typical curry tunjang, or kikil. 'Pangek ikan paweh batalua' (fish curry cooked eggs Tawes until dry), curry intestine (bovine) containing a mixture of crushed eggs and tofu, beef jerky balado, fried eel. After that of course there is fried chicken, chicken curry, chicken rendang, beef rendang.

Rice always comes standard Kapau jackfruit curry rice Kapau hallmark. Jackfruit curry coconut milk does not use much and not too thick. Curry mixed with green beans, cabbage, bamboo shoots, ferns, and jengkol. In addition to jackfruit curry, rice dishes Kapau almost all of the meat dishes. Intestine curry (curry tambunsu) a mixture of chicken eggs and tofu are put into cow intestines (due to intestinal harder buffalo), fish curry, curry tunjang, grilled chicken, anchovies balado, cob balado, beef jerky balado, fried eel, and green chili. Another side dish of rice Kapau fried chicken, fried chicken green curry chicken, rendang chicken, beef rendang. Rice Kapau be of high quality rice, is generally sent from Bukittinggi and Agam.

In Bukittinggi Market, the market closest to the village Kapau, each side dish or goulash was placed in a large pan-tiered stacking is placed between the bench where the buyer and the seller who eat well are the servants who will get curry in accordance with buyer demand. Use a spoon to scoop curry coconut shells from long-stemmed, because of the arrangement of pots curry was too far away to reach the hand.

In places to eat in the middle market in the Pasar Lereng Bukittinggi like every trader has a more or less two and a half times two feet. Here lined with merchants selling rice Kapau almost identical. Open competition is very competitive. But every trader has no fortune of each, there are already customers of each. This may be because there is little difference or advantage to one type of food in one place than another place next door. Maybe 'gulai tunjang' Tek Ani more savory while 'pangek paweh batalua' better at Tek Ana.

Kapau rice meal in the tavern as the simplest on the Pasar Lereng Bukittinggi can not be said the food was cheap. The price is obviously different from the price of food on stalls Tegal example. Perhaps this is because 'trademark' Kapau already famous rice dish-pauknya addition of side dishes are usually expensive (tunjang, beef jerky, chicken, etc.). In Lis Union shop in London dining with dishes of the main piece of tunjang plus a small piece of dried beef jerky, or as an additional piece of fried eel with vegetables jackfruit and bamboo shoots can cost close to Rp15 000.

Restaurant Nasi Kapau scattered everywhere. In Jakarta, Bandung, Bogor, in Jogjakarta, Surabaya. Even crossed over to Kalimantan and Sulawesi. Only in the restaurants were serving and eating is no longer as in the tavern Union Lis in Bukittinggi. But the side dishes, side dishes served at the table like a Padang restaurant. In Jakarta collection lapau Kapau rice similar to the slopes Bukittinggi Market is located at the end of the road near the junction Senen Raya Kramat. Here large pots containing curry too laid-tiered stacking.
