Sambal at Cornerstone Deli – An Authentic Reflection of Indonesia

A true representation of Indonesia’s dynamic heritage that is on par with this country’s red and white flag and
the culture’s botanical-inspired batik sarongs, sambal is a traditional condiment sauce made from a variety of chili peppers. Once you determine how spicy you want your sambal to be, an intoxicating mixture of secondary ingredients may be added including shrimp paste, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, sugar, lime juice and vinegar.

The perfect complement to many of Indonesia’s most recognized regional dishes, most Indonesians couldn’t imagine having their ikan bakar (grilled fish), ayam goreng (fried chicken), or soto (soup) without a healthy dollop or five of freshly prepared sambal. Honoring the classic methods of preparation that have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries, the Sambal Corner at Cornerstone Deli handcrafts each batch of sambal in the traditional manner with a stone mortar and pestle. Sambal Corner is the ideal place to try a variety of sambals to see which one pleases your palate most. A smart take-away gift that will introduce family and friends back home to an authentic taste of Indonesia, stylish jars add just the right touch of luxury to a timeless delicacy.
