The Overview

Start your day with a spicy jolt at buzzing Manadonese joint Beautika, where the food at the metal buffet counter is freshest in the morning. Point at what you want and it's delivered to your wooden table. This fare, from North Sulawesi, packs chilies into nearly every dish, including the savory cakalang saos (smoked skipjack tuna smeared with a searing red sambal) and ayam ternate (dark red chicken with plenty of burn and a hint of palm sugar). The colorful side dish sayur acar only looks innocent: lurking amid the carrots, cucumbers, shallots and bengkuang fruit—all pickled in a vinegar yellowed with ground turmeric—are, you guessed it, fiery chilies.
