Nasi kucing ([ˈnasi ˈkutʃɪŋ]; also known as sego kucing and often translated cat cat's rice) is an Indonesian rice dish that originated from Yogyakarta, Semarang, and Solo. However, it has since spread to Jakarta and even as far as Mecca, sold by Indonesian workers during the pilgrimage.
Nasi kucing consists of a small, fist-sized portion of rice along with toppings. Common toppings include sambal, dried fish, and tempeh. Other ingredients can include egg, chicken, and cucumber. It is served ready-made, wrapped in a banana leaf, which is further wrapped in paper.
Nasi kucing is often sold at a low price (sometimes as low as IDR 1,000 [US$0.12] for nasi kucing at small, road-side food stalls called 'angkringan', which are frequented by lower-class people, including pedicab and taxi drivers, students, and street musicians. This has led to angkringan being considered the "lowest class of eatery". The owners of the angkringan themselves often come from lower socio-economic classes (although this is not always the case, because now everyone can do this business through franchise that moderately low cost), may have few or no marketable skills, or originated from remote villages. From the average daily net profits of IDR 500,000.00 – 750,000.00 (US$ 30 – 50), the seller is able to operate independently and within 3 months they can go beyond break even angkringan_cakbhendot
