Jayakarta -- Indonesian in Berkeley!

I just had a very nice lunch at Jayakarta Restaurant, a new Indonesian/Singaporean restaurant in the former Papa's Persian Restaurant space on University Ave. It's been open 2 weeks, I don't think it's been mentioned here yet.


I had #33 Nasi Padang. The beef was tasty and fork tender. The chicken gizzards w/stinky beans was delicious, though the beans seemed to be favas, nothing stinky about them that my nose could detect. My companions opted for the #41 Lontong Cap Go Meh and the $6.95 lunch special with Sambal Goreng Hati Ampla and Tahu Telor Bali and Gado-Gado rather than regular green salad. All three of us, including a guy from Singapore, enjoyed our dishes very much. Can't wait to go back for dinner to try the Sate Kambing (goat satay), Sayur Asam (sour tamarind soup), and Babat Goreng Kecap (crispy fried tripe)!
