Sometime ago, there was an Indonesian resto. called Bali Indonesia on Kapiolani Blvd across from McCully SC. Although I can cook Indonesian food, from time to time I don't feel like cooking, or would want to bring guest to enjoy the ambience of a nice restaurant. Anyone knows whether there is any Indonesian resto. or similar to it (not Malaysian). Just wondering...

    Not since the one you mentioned closed. I have an Indonesian friend who lived here, they were always hoping someone would open another one, but no such luck.

        Lodeh - a stew that is often vegetarian, but you could add chicken
        Rendang- a beef dish, almost a stew, not a lot of sauce.
        N'sai goreng - fried rice indonesia style

        the asian market on beretania across times has the mixes/packets to start these as well as some other ingredients. the recipes can be found on line.

        the only one I've made is lodeh.

        well well - you may be (temporarily) in luck if you got lunch time to spare....due to a scheduling conflict, there will be an indonesian chef at TASTE on Fridays lunchtime for next 3 weeks:
