Jakarta Corner, RIP

Jakarta Corner in Alston's Super 88, my favorite place in the Boston area for Indonesian food -- and run by the sweetest couple ever to don aprons and chef's hats -- is no more. They actually retired a few months ago, but I've only now emerged from my beef rendang/kalasan fried chicken/sambal/rijstafel withdrawal.

There actually IS still an Indonesian restaurant in the same place, but it's a pale imitation of its predecessor: smaller portions, less flavorful sauces, tougher beef rendang, and just plain less tasty all around.

We're living in a poorer city these days, and I doff my cap to the Jakarta Corner that was.
