The Overview

To sample the food of Papua, the largest and most exotic province in Indonesia, head to Yougwa, where the star is the papeda, a vaguely fruity, glue-like blob of sago palm starch that substitutes for rice. The staff will transfer it into your soup—try the kuah asam ikan malas, a spicy-sour fish soup—by expertly twisting if off from long wooden utensils made for the purpose. Though it's a staple in Papua, it will feel anything but ordinary in your mouth.
