Too expensive to import quality food into Indonesia.
I wouldn't eat Chinese food,
you all can knock yourself out with it

My family and friends gave the same response when I brought them oleh oleh from Indonesia... What a shame.

You must not live in Indonesia. A lot of food is Chinese imports. Except the rats. They all come from Russia.

I hear that Mr Putin is taking a personal interest in your remark about Russians and they are preparing something special for you.

Chinese Mexican-American tortilla chips sold to Indonesians -- the world is getting smaller.

I wish there were good local tortilla chips, and flour and corn tortillas in Indonesia. I usually bring some flour tortillas when I come from the states, but have been out for almost 6 months.

I've just been buying those kebab wraps at Setiabudi Store and pretending they are tortillas. I tend to fry my burritos anyway, so the difference is less noticeable. I'm not recommending it, just what I get by with.
They also have a frozen, ready to fry, paratha that makes a slightly more delicious substitute than the kebab wraps.

The parathas they have are pretty good, if you fry them up in the pan. That’s how I eat rendang most of the time. Not anywhere as good as real paratha, but much better than the things they sell here that they call tortillas.
