authentic homemade Indonesian tempeh
Our love of tempeh began nearly 20 years ago when we were first living in Indonesia and we've spent many years since then enjoying the lovely tempeh as much as the beauty of Indonesia and its people.
We decided to set up Warung Tempeh to introduce the delights of this wonderful food to a wider audience... and are delighted to be doing so from our street food stall on Leather Lane Market in central london, where each day we serve our tasty homemade tempeh in two freshly cooked dishes see our menu for details
Before embarking on this exciting new venture, we wanted to ensure that our tempeh would be comparable to the best in Indonesia so we spent several months in Java (in 2013) studying with some of the country's finest tempeh producers, closely observing their techniques and processes. And we're now able to make great authentic Indonesian tempeh in Bedfordshire thanks to our helpful mentors in Java!
All our tempeh is organic and is made according to traditional methods, using only Rhizopus Oligosporus (a starter culture traditionally formed on hibiscus leaves) which gives tempeh its amazing health benefits... why is tempeh so good for us?
...and though we make our tempeh according to traditional methods, we also ensure that we adhere carefully to modern commercial hygiene standards and have been awarded the highest possible Food Hygiene Rating from the UK's Food Standards Agency (see certificate opposite).
The name 'Warung Tempeh' comes from where we fist tried tempeh, in a warung, an Indonesian street-side stall - so we thought this an appropriate name as we bring our authentic Indonesian tempeh to the lively street markets of London!
