Batagor

{{totalReview}}
Batagor, short for Bakso Tahu Goreng, is a one of the most famous street snacks in Indonesia, and with reason! It is the perfect snack because of the way it is served – the fried fish dumplings are cut into little bite-sized pieces and covered in a savory mix of peanut, soy and chili sauce. To cut through the spice, a splash of lime juice is usually added.
