Does anyone know of a good Indonesian restaurant in
the DC area?

Dave, you probably thought of this, but have you asked
the Indonesians themselves? Also, you may want to try
the consulate and embassy, plus any trade
organizations. I'd go down all the various
"Indones..." listings in the white pages and ask
quickly. Whole thing would probably take 10 minutes,
you could have a secretary do it.

Also, go to www.easttimor.com for lots of info, news
and views. However, be prepared for some gruesome,
I just got back from Indonesia where I met some of
the UN people overseeing the recent East Timor vote.
Even they felt East Timor should be given independence
and that the corrupt military/police should be forced
to stop the torture and genocide. By the way, most
of the natives I spoke with felt the same way.
The website (above) will give you more background and
insight into this truly tragic situation.
Ivy's in Cleveland Park used to be fine, but the menu has been edging toward Thai, inevitably, and it may be under different management. Try it and tell me what you think.
