Indonesian food!

Tari | Sep 17, 2003 04:38 PM

Hi, I've lived in NYC for seven years and hail from Indonesia. About a year and a half ago, I found a fairly authentic Indonesian restaurant that keeps me from getting too homesick called Borobudur Cafe located at 4th Street and First Ave. Recommended dishes:
- martabak (phyllo dough stuffed with seasoned egg)
- pempek palembang (a fried fish cake stuffed with a hardboiled egg served in a light sweet and sour spicy sauce)
- chicken satay (very different from Thai style)
- fried rice
- rendang padang (spicy beef chunks in a coconut curry)
- opor ayam (chicken curry)
- es teler (a dessert consisting of shaved ice, basil seeds, palm seeds, coconut and avocado)
- avocado juice
- fried bananas.
