Prologue:Rijsttafel or "rice table" is a Dutch term that refers to the showcase of Indonesian cuisine through a repertoire of small dishes accompanied by rice as a staple during colonial times.
Amsterdam is one of the best places to sample this type of cuisine with a great selection of restaurants that cater to the adventurous diner.
I ordered the rice table set and it started with "bakwan" - shrimp fritter with crab served with a sweet and sour sauce.
