Just discovered this place in west LA when going to Hu's . I think its going to be one of my regular haunts like Sabor a Mexico, a place where you want to try everything on the menu. Today I had the #8, nasi bungkus (7$) as recommended by the guy working there for my first time eating Indonesian. Rice with chicken curry, beef rendang, balinese egg, spiced potato, and light vegetable curry wrapped in a banana leaf. Very tasty and flavorful and exotic. The guy who works there is very friendly and helpful and informative. It's cheap, its funky, its exotic, its different, and its tasty- my favorite qualities in a restaurant.

Also took home some tasty snacks from their market- kering tempeh=spicy peanuts, tempeh, chili, and anchovies. And also some sweet fried banana rolls- a more interesting combination than the usual chocolate and chips.
