Native to the South Sumatran city of Palembang, pempek, empek-empek, or mpek-mpek is a dish comprising of steamed and fried fishcakes and served with a sweet and sour (and sometimes spicy) soy sauce. They are also served along with yellow noodles and diced cucumbers to help you neutralize the sourness and the spiciness of the soy sauce.

There are around 15 variations of pempek but the most popular ones are pempek kapal selam, pempek lenjer, pempek adaan, and pempek kulit.
