Report - Indonesian Chowdown at Batavia Garden in SF

First, there were 8 of us. It was a nice cozy place that can fit 30-40 people. White linens and good utensils, etc. We had 8 courses and some tropical drinks.

I will list what we had and let the others tell their evaluations:

-Kepiting Hitam Manis: large fried dungeness crab served w/ house special black pepper sauce

-Kepiting Saus Padang/Chilli crab: similar to above with red chili sauce similar to the Singaporean versions

-Nasi goreng terasi pedas: house special fried rice with shrimp paste, egg, chicken, topped with sunny side up egg

-Bakmi goreng babah: stir fried egg noodle with egg, vegetables and chicken

-Ayam Bakar: house special spicy barbeque chicken. The 1/2 chicken was wrapped in foil and there was actual small flame on top that died down after a few minutes

-Empal Gepuk: fried marinated beef with sweet honey taste.

-Gulai kambing: diced lamb in curry sauce and some potatoes

-Ikan bakar: grilled tilapia served with special Indonesian salsa.

-Es Cinta manis: grass jelly in palm sugar syrup

-Es Teller: sweetened mixed tropical fruits w/ coconut milk

-Es Cendol: green coloured smallish rice flour cake with palm sugar syrup

-Es Doger: sliced coconut meat and fermented rice in syrup

-Es alpokat: avocado juice drink in palm syrup?

-Pisang kipas: deep fried banana topped with powder sugar.
