Set in what looks like a railroad apartment, this family-run find is known for its rijsttafel, a 12-dish sampler (including soup and dessert) priced at just $36 for two people. Other must-orders: flavorful chicken soup with potato balls and fried onions; rendang, beef spiced with chili and cooked in coconut milk; satay madura, chicken satay with tamarind and lime leaves. Batik squares serve as napkins, and the background music is Indonesian folk-drumming.
