Now that you've eaten your weight in bánh chưng at Little Saigon's Tet Festival this past weekend, how about the Indonesian equivalent called bacang, or sate or gado gado?
The cuisine of the fourth-most-populous country on Earth–behind China, India and us (it's true; look it up)–will be featured at the annual Bazaar Imlek, a celebration of Chinese New Year hosted by the Indonesian Chinese American Association this Saturday at Wilson High School in Hacienda Heights from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Yes, Hacienda Heights is not technically in Orange County, but it's a shorter drive than the
usual weekly Pondok Kaki Lima (Indonesian Street Food Fair) in Duarte
(especially for those of you in La Habra and Brea). The street vendors
from that gathering are relocating to this festival just for this
weekend, joined by even more food purveyors, music, even a dancing lion.
Parking and admission is free. See you there!
Wilson High School is located at 16455 Wedgeworth Dr., Hacienda Heights.
