Indonesian in Pasadena

Stumbled across a reference a couple of weeks ago to a new pizza place, opening on Colorado across the street from Big Mama's and Papa's Pizza / Lucky Baldwin's Pub. It's owned by the family that used to own Fredo's Pizza (not to be confused with the great Fredo's cheesesteak place on Lake Ave, which I still mourn), previous located at Colorado and Mentor, in where EuroPane, an Indian place, a Vietnamese place, etc. used to be.

Anyway, I was happy, because I like their red sauce (it's on the sweeter end, which is my preference) and they offer a decent assortment of vegetarian pies.

Looking at their menu, though, I was surprised to see several Indonesian pizzas and, at the bottom of the menu, in the "The Kitchen" section, they're offering:

Mie Ayam Jamur
$6.99 Indonesian Chicken-Mushroom Noodle
$7.50 Bakso Tennis
Indonesian Meatball Soup
$7.50 Bebek Goreng Suroboyo
Indonesian Fried Duck
$7.50 Ayam Kremes
Crispy Fried Chicken

I didn't try any of the dishes, as I'm eating fairly vegetarian these days, but they sound interesting.

    I'm curious to see what their laksa pizza tastes like

      So laksa is a creamy curry? It really does sound intriguing.

        i'm more curious to see if they serve those meatballs tennis style.

      2. Er, forgot to add that they're closed on Saturday. Much to my frustration, two Saturdays in a row (really should have looked again at their website).
