I haven't had much indonesian food before, but what I did have in the past was just okay. Lots of satay and indonesian rice dishes.
Then I went to "Borobudur-Taste of the Spice Islands" at 700 Post Street at Jones. 415-775-1512. Yummy, great service and really nice decor. There were two of us so we only tried three things. Next time I want to go with a group so I can try more dishes, because there are about 60 dishes on the menu. What we did try was: Roti Prata, grilled bread, alot like nan, but with a curry dip--really got the taste buds working. Then Cumi Bakar-marinated and grilled squid with a great tamarind/pepper sauce.To die for-chewey-crunchy with a bit of the burnt grill taste. Then we had a very fresh veggie dish: Bakmi goreng, chow mein-type noodles with a lite curry sauce and fried egg. It was $10 each-so quite a good price for downtown, plus we had great leftovers. I couldn't wait until lunchtime the next day!
