Amid the fusion/mash-up food trend, it’s no surprise that rendang (beef simmered in coconut milk and spices) has joined the crowd of popular dishes evolving in different directions.

Here are some of the ways to enjoy rendang that don't require you to visit a Padang restaurant.

Martabak Rendang by Martruckbucks

As Padang restaurants' most popular dish, the birth of rendang in martabak (pancakes) is somewhat predictable. With other great ingredients and dishes having been added to martabak, incluging mozzarella and salted egg, martabak rendang is naturally delicious yet not as heavy as the actual rendang.

Spicy Beef Rendang by Enigma Restaurant, Bar and Biliards

Spicy Beef Rendang is an Indonesian version of spaghetti. There are a lot of touches of rendang in this menu, including its sauce. Yet Enigma uses imported beef to make sure that customers get the best quality of meat with a traditional taste.
