A friend in Glebe suggested trying out this Indonesian restaurant, and it was a fun night! The cocktails, during happy hour, are only $10, which is outstanding value for expensive Sydney! I found mine, with an intriguing ice cube coloured with butterfly pea flower, to be too sweet. Oh well.
We sat outside in the front, which threatened rain but didn’t and was very pleasant. The inside looks nice enough too, a sort of beach house feel, and there was an area out back which I didn’t check out.
I think my friend liked hers better than I did.
We figured out from the menu that you order a basic plate of rice and sides, and then you order other dishes to put on top of it!
We ordered squid (tasty), and king prawns, which came on their own little BBQ grill. Really, really tasty.
And also some tasty, sticky, and somewhat unwieldy ribs!
Oh, and some twice-fried potato patties, which were fine, nothing special but tasty enough (and cheap at $4). In fact, the cost of the food was very reasonable for everything.
It was a pleasant evening, with simple, tasty and inexpensive food. I would hope there are so many Aussies who have loved their vacations in Bali that they’ll find their way here to be reunited with Indonesian food in a relaxed setting.
