One of two Indonesian restaurants on the block, cozy Mie Jakarta specializes in noodles (that’s what mie means). You can’t go wrong with sweet chicken satays or the gado gado, a salady mix of chopped lettuce, sprouts, nuts and boiled eggs (each $6.50 and covered with sticky peanut sauce). But the best things on the menu are the Indonesian fried noodles called goring and the chicken noodle soups (with wontons, $5.50), which have the perfect mix of sour, salty, sweet and comfort in every slurp. No matter what you order, be sure to add hot sauce!
