I wonder why this restaurant isn't so popular even among Indonesian in Tokyo, but I ensure you all that they won't disappoint you in terms of taste and authenticity. I ordered "Sate Padang" (spicy type of satay) and it's very delicious!!! The cook told me that she comes from Padang, a city in Sumatera island: famous for its spicy foods like Rendang, Sate Padang, etc. No wonder why her Sate Padang is soooo good 😭 It costed me less than 1500¥, came with some slices of "ketupat" or rice cake but apparently not enough to make me full so I ordered another plate of rice 😅A minus point I can figure out: the ambience of the place is not so comfortable. It's dark, small, and might be also dusty. Nevertheless, I'm quite satisfied with the taste!
The food is okay, but the air circulation is bad.
I ordered mi goreng telur (fried noodle with egg) for 1000yen. it tasted ok, overall 3 out of 5 for me.
My first time trying Indonesian food, and it was really good, spicy but good :) The place was bit difficult to find though , because it's on the 3rd floor of a building, while I was looking on the street :p
