Waroeng JAJANA, Edmonds
just returned from this new Indonesian grocery and deli. it is located at 22315 Hwy 99 in Edmonds.
i think the young man told me they opened on the 11th.
very helpful when I told him I knew nothing about Indonesian food.
i brought home some items from the deli case: Nasi Ayam Bakar Pedes, some sticky rice wrapped in banana (?) leaf, a fried meat pie and "famous" indonesian crackers. that looks peanut brittley, but not as thick or sweet. has a nice savory flavor.
what else should i try?
Is that in the little strip mall just north of 99Ranch? I've bought some things from the Indonesian Malay section at 99 (e.g. sweet soy sauce, shrimp paste).
I see from your profile that you wish you could find 'tempura soba'. Are you familiar with Matsu Sushi on 44?
They list Tenzaru Soba on their lunch menu
oh yah! i am partial to their special bahn mi. their steam plate food looks good. lots of people taking out food from there. i've tried their stuffed bitter melon, and i liked it, but i don't know much about bitter melon. actually i don't know much at all, about vietnamese food, just the normal stuff like pho, bahn xeo, bun, etc. etc.
they have a real nice cold pate, but i'm not sold on their pate chaud. great flan. and if there's any left by the time i get there, i pick up a french roll or two to schmear pate on. if you didn;t notice, it is cash only.
