Tempe Penyet is one of East Java province’s famous dishes. Tempeh is made from soybeans, with a controlled fermentation process that binds soy beans into a cake form. It can have a very strong smell but the taste is just delicious :)
The name Penyet came from Javanese word that means “squashed”. This refers to the tempe mixed with sambal being  a little crushed before serving. If you want to taste something different, this dish is worth a try especially if you like authentic Indonesian food.
