AMSTERDAM: Which is the most authentic Indonesian restaurant?

scwilder | Oct 17, 2013 05:02 AM

I've been digging through the forum and not finding much. I am not necessarily looking for a Rijstaffel. I am Indonesian and that's not something we do in Indonesia. But I'd like to order a really good nasi goreng, nasi kuning, soto ayam, martabak, pempek (I know there are some in Den Haag), or maybe some siomay with a cendol drink.

We'll have 3 full days in Amsterdam and being Indonesian who hasn't been living in Indonesia and can't cook authentic dishes (mostly due to lack of motivation finding the ingredients here in a small village in England) I would really like to stuff myself with some comfort food :)

Maybe a warung to takeaway that's not easily searchable online. Or a restaurant with a really good soto ayam for example that's a bit outside of the centre. I read that at Blauw you can't order side dishes without ordering a main. I rather not go to that type of restaurant and not one where I have to go through parts/all of the red light district. I have young children.

So far I have this list:

Not looking so promising :)
