A gem of a find! This place is traditional Indonesian food, which smells stronger, use more intense stinky fish, squid or prawn sauce, and can be mercilessly spicy.

The decor was very welcoming, splashed with ambient lighting, wood counter tops and tables. Nice ambience, but very loud. WHAT I ORDERED
It was a parade of lovely yummy dishes, started with:
PECEL (INDONESIAN SALAD) IDR 3,500
It all started with the Pecel. Steamed veggies plus steamed chickpea plus cabbage plus cucumber with peanut dressing. This Indonesian salad mix of greens and peanut sauce has a remarkable flavor and has a slight spicy kick that immediately won me over. This alone got me to order more food.
SAMBAL REMPELO ATI (FRIED CHILI SAUCE MIXED WITH DICED LIVER) IDR 3,500
Mind you this is pretty spicy, but I like the extra zing with my dish. A mix of crisp fried red shallots, red and green chili, shrimp paste and salt, briefly stir-fried in coconut oil. Diced liver add much texture to the chili paste.
A yummy and crunchy fried catfish. A perfect combination with the hot and spicy Sambal Rempelo Ati.
AYAM GORENG (FRIED CHICKEN) IDR 11,000
The fried chicken in sweet soy sauce was lovely and never fatty or gristle-y, something that normally makes me wary of ordering chicken dishes. The chicken was pretty good in its own right but was greatly enhanced by the sweet soy sauce.
Eggs pan-fried with chilies and onions.
Traditional Indonesian food do not focus too much on food presentation, but this place certainly tries and succeeds pretty well at it. Thankfully the presentation doesn't off-set the portion sizes. I hate it when they try too hard to make the food look good, but then I walk out the eatery still feeling hungry and yearning for more.
Service was friendly and patient though the food took some time to come out because of the multiple components. All of the food were great, but the portions were on the small side.
This place gets almost everything right. The food is delicious - a lot of unique stuff on the menu and perfectly spiced. The decor is nice. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Portions are OK for sharing if you have a medium-ish appetite and don't eat too much.
Order family-style, so you can try different dishes.
