Indonesian Rijsttafel ("Rice Table")
Just got back from a trip to Belgium where I was introduced to the amazing Indonesian Rijsttafel ("Rice Table"). Poked around a bit on here, and didn't come up with much. Anyone have any recc's for Rijsttafel around NYC?
I think the places mentioned above are probably your better bets. In case you are looking for a restaurant in Manhattan. I can think of a place in Hell's Kitchen called "Bali Nusa Indah" that may offer this dish (maybe not be on the on-line menu but I vaguely remember seeing it on their dine-in menu...... maybe you can call to check?) I have not been there for a long time so other folks might want to comment on it (I hope it's still around...) From my own experience, it's not bad, but not great either. I am not Indonesian so I can't speak for its authenticity.
Wish you good luck finding a place and please share your experiences with us after your visit.
That's the only rijstaffel I know of in Manhattan. My companion and I did not have the rijstaffel, but the table next to us did during our last visit a few years ago and we both remarked it looked rather small for a feast. Not merely the number of items, but also the amount given per item, really tasting portions for the table, which is just as well since the food wasn't spectacular anyway.
