Nasi jamblang is a typical food of Cirebon, West Java. The "jamblang" term comes from the name of the region to the west of the city of Cirebon, where food vendors first sold the dish. A characteristic feature of the dish is the use of teak leaves to pack the rice. The dish is served buffet-style.[1][2][3]


Nasi jamblang is a traditional Cirebonese food originally served to the forced labourers who built the Great Post Road from Anyer to Panarukan which passes through Cirebon Regency during the Dutch colonial era.[citation needed]
