    That doesn't look like the gado gado I'm used to. And that may be a good thing. Thanks, you've given me a new look at an old favourite.

    It looks similar to the gado-gado we have here in Indonesia, except that we usually have it served with all the veggies already mixed with the peanut sauce. and with some yummy prawn crackers as well =)

    Yeah, I'm used to having all the veg sliced and mixed on a plate and then doused in peanut sauce. This looks much prettier.
