oh.. Really...our tempe also a famous healthy food besides that luwak coffee.

I'd love to try luwak coffee some time, but I've never seen it, even in the most upscale coffeehouses. It's famous because of the... uniqueness of the sourcing :XD: but I guess it's like the way Americans won't eat anything that's too far inside the animal or too far down on it. That seems to go for beverages as well. :D

I discovered tempeh only a few years ago, and I love it. It can substitute for ground beef in vegetarian chili con carne or stuffed peppers, but I also like to cut a block into thin slices, pan-fry it, and put it on a sandwich with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and anything else you might put on a sandwich.

Tempeh mendoan looks like it's right up my alley, but tempeh orek sounds a little too sweet for my taste. Still, I'd have no problem with fixing it according to the recipe and adjusting it to my preferences. You're going to lure me into buying specialty items to make Indonesian food, the way I have soy sauce and rice wine and rice vinegar for Chinese food, or bonito flakes and miso and a variety of seaweed for Japanese food. :XD: So far the only things I need seem to be kecap manis and galangal.
