Empal Gepuk

Empal Gepuk is one of the authentic dish from my hometown Bandung, Indonesia. We usually eat it with nasi timbel (warm rice wrapped in banana leaves), sambal terasi, salted fish, fried tempeh, fried tofu, and lalab sunda (usually raw vegetables, such as lettuce, cucumber, tomato, basil leaves, etc).
