Lunch at Indonesian consulate

f

I have a friend going up the Indonesia consulate for a visa, and I told her to make sure to have lunch at the cafeteria, which, at least last time I visited in 2001, had a great lunch in their cafeteria. Does anyone know if that is still happening, and what if anything is required to go in? Hard to find a good Indonesian restaurant in this town, so I hope it's still available to outsiders.

      Do you know the hours of the fair? Is it the same fair that happened on May 31? I was dying to go but had other plans...

        should be 10am to 5pm. heading there also; and, in concert, we should start a new thread to review it properly (and "bump" it in the boards).

        and a thread here (with some chatter about consulate catering, etc.
