Borneo Kalimantan Cuisine (Alhambra)

  • 9

Tried it for lunch today. Had the Kway Teow Goreng Kalimantan which is pretty good. Closest thing to Char Kway Teow (salty version..not the sweet Singapore version).

Wife had the nasi melayu which is so-so. The rice was not fragrant enough; ikan bilis was ok.

Overall, we prefer Wong Java House.

  1. But aren't you just glad there are 2 more options OVER Indo Kitchen? And even more glad there are 3 Indo restaurants, plus a great Indo market in Alhambra/San Gabriel?

      Please TonyC, which Indo market in SG is great, and do they have Malaysian or Singaporean(or thai or Lao) ingredients? Thank You.

        168 & 99 Ranch both have Thai/Singaporean & Lao incredients, no?

          Also in West Covina there's an Indonisian store inside of the HK 2 Supermarket. Also I think a couple of the food court restaurants are Indonesian.

          Are you referring to the Indonesian market by Luscious Dumplings? I think it's Tip Top?

            There's also a new(ish) Indo market on San Gabriel just south of Las Tunas.

                Their prepared foods are quite good. I usually stop by and pick up a few of their meals
                when I'm in the neighborhood. That area around Las Tunas is thick with very good and varied choices.

          2. That was some of the hottest food I have ever enjoyed - very interesting combinations of sour, spicy, and funky flavors.
