Gajebo (West Sumatra province), Tinutuan (North Sulawesi province), Terung Pipit (West Kalimantan province), Kare Rajungan (East Java province).
From the very beginning Indonesia has been known for the abundant spices, such as pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, which are favorite to the Europeans. Their promise of great profit drove the European traders to find a sea-route to Indonesian archipelago and eventually control it. Centuries of contact with other  great civilizations especially Indian, Arab, Chinese and European has added distinctive touch to Indonesian culinary art.
