Things I like: dua Belibis

IMG_3580-2 copy

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!
