Borneo Kalimantan Cuisine (Alhambra)
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.
Wong Java House
1936 W Valley Blvd
Alhambra, CA 91803
That was some of the hottest food I have ever enjoyed - very interesting combinations of sour, spicy, and funky flavors.
a group of us tried wong java house today. it was a little weird since all the adult indonesians in the place spent more time watching CNN come up with more details about that tragedy with the flight.
we ordered the whole fried chicken, whole fried fish with chili sauce, beef rendang (curry beef) & and shrimp/vegetable stir fry.
i think everyone liked the chicken the most, probably because what i'm guessing was kaffir lime which gave the crispy crust a lightness and minimized the greasiness. the curry was different, it was more like a stew/braise of a tougher cut of beef and none of thought the flavor was all that remarkable.
and i neglected to find out who pete was (see pic 5).
