No that wasn't it. It was white rice wrapped in some leaves with chicken and hm...I remember dried salted fish (don't really remember whether it came with the satay or the rice), some corn...I think there were some more but I just forgot (mostly because I didn't know what they were). The chicken was especially good! Also I think the wrapping leaves made the rice tasted much better than usual (if not, it was probably because I was hungry lmao). I also remember these little white squarish thing that seemed to be made up of smashed potato but it didn't taste like the American smashed potato when I had it so I wasn't sure what it was. I think it came with satay (if not, it could come with the rice).
Oh I got combination satay (pork, beef, goat, chicken, something else, it was 5 or 6 kinds of meat) but ironic enough, with the exception of chicken whose appearance is easily distinguished by its yellowish color, I couldn't tell the rest.
I knew they tasted differently (some I liked and some I didn't) but I couldn't tell which one was pork, which one was goat and so on.
Wrapped in leaves (banana?) must be a 'pepes' dish, chicken is ayam, so I guess nasi pepes ayam
? lol. Hmm the dried/fried salted anchovies, isn't that widely available in SEA, even in Vietnam or so I thought? The satay is usually one dish. I don't know anything about a square figured mashed potatoe haha. Your discription sounds like it's a bad place for Indonesians
But good for the unknown, at least.

BTW, have you ever tried Sushi? Many Filipino's haven't so I've introduced it to many out here where I live.
Duuuude for real? I've never met a person in my life that didn't know what sushi is. I mean, next to pizza and burgers, sushi comes next!! Teriyaki, teppanyaki, tempura, etc is a different story.
Chuka wakame... ebi.. taki... inari.. tobiko & ikura gunkun NOMMM!
I really wanna try fugu, but I'm scared that I'll end up dead XD

some use lots of pig stomach in their blood stew and some cooks use other parts
is a Filipino savory stew of blood and meat (typically stomach, intestines, ears, heart and snout) simmered in a rich, spicy dark gravy of pig blood, garlic, chili (most often siling mahaba), and vinegar
Just a question, is that dish with blood a national dish of the Phils / Widely available throughout the Phils? Do catholic Phils don't care that's forbidden? (just like my moslem friends that eat pork etc :P)
Well I eat anything except that ^_^ blood is a no-no for me, no matter how delicious and aromatic the dish smells :P
