"Short-eats" are savoury bite-sized pastries or rolls and can be quick, easy and fun. There's always a dish of sambol (a red hot combination of grated coconut, chilli and spice) available if you really want to set your mouth on fire. Short eats such as chinese rolls (a pancake with a beef, fish, chicken or vegetable filling and fried), cutlets, patties, pastries, hot dogs, ham burgers etc. are freely available. The fish cutlets made from mashed tuna spliced with curry spices are delightfully tasty, while the squids hidden in a bed of onions fried to the very bone seem unusually crispy. But still, the taste of the flesh is intact.
