Okay, so it’s a little unfair to write about dua Belibis because unless you live in a major metropolitan area, you probably aren’t going to find it at your local Asian grocery store. That said you can order it on Amazon, and if you are a fan of things sweet and spicy, I strongly recommend that you do! My good friend, Tita, who is from Indonesia, first introduced me to dua Belibis. When she moved back to Jakarta, she gave us her stash – and we couldn’t be more grateful. dua Belibis tastes like a sweeter version of ketchup backed up with a serious kick. A little goes a long way, which is a good thing when these little bottles of red gold are so hard to come by if you live in the U.S. In Indonesia, however, Tita reports dua Belibis is EVERYWHERE – in little packets at fast food joints, in every family’s pantry, and in every market. Shawn puts it on everything he would have put ketchup on previously: eggs, mashed potatoes, pierogies…you get the idea. I like it on shrimp crackers best.
Try it – I know you’ll like it!
