      It is easy for vegetarian to eat in Indonesia because a lot of our foods made from vegetables and beans family.
      You can easy to get in warung or street foods.
      You just ask them or choose vegetables (= sayur) you like. Then, you can ask “Tempe” that made from fermented soya beans. or “Tahu” (= Tofu).
      What you need to aware is some of vegetables mix with scramble egg, but not always. Here some vocabs maybe you need:
      Not use = Tidak pake
      Meat = Daging
      Fish = Ikan
      Shrimp = Udang
      Egg = Telur

      Since we are biggest moslem country, it is not easy to find pork here. Only in chinese food or chinese town. So, you don’t have to worry about pork.
