The September best food of the world poll from CNNGO now puts Rendang at the top spot. In the July list, Rendang was at the 11th place.
CNNGO says: "And now, after more than 35,000 votes, it appears we got it all wrong. The world’s most delicious food is not Massaman curry, as we suggested, but a meaty, spicy, gingery dish from west Sumatra."
"Beef is slowly simmered with coconut milk and a mixture of lemongrass, galangal, garlic, turmeric, ginger and chilies, then left to stew for a few hours to create this dish of tender, flavorful bovine goodness.
The Indonesian dish is often served at ceremonial occasions and to honored guests. It's not only delicious but also comes with a simple recipe."
The revised list also has nasi goreng at the second place, and satay at number 14
