Colenak (Grilled Fermented Cassava with Palm Sugar Sauce)

{{totalReview}}
Colenak is short for 'dicocol enak' meaning ‘tasty when dipped’ in Bahasa Indonesia. A specialty of West Java, it was the chosen dessert to be served in the 1955 Asian African Conference. This legendary treat is made of grilled fermented cassava topped with palm sugar sauce and shredded coconut topping. Best enjoyed fresh off the grill and perfect for the cold nights in Bogor and Bandung.
