I went to a restaurant called Minang Asli in Queens last weekend.
I surprised myself at how excited I was to eat Indonesian food.
My date and I had...
1) Pempek Palembang. Is there any other type of Pempek?
2) Sate kambing. Which was translated as lamb satay. I am not sure whether it was a translation error or whether they were trying to fool the Westerners - or maybe they were trying to fool the Indonesians (suspect goat meat is hard to find in NYC).
3) Nasi goreng with ikan asin - fried rice with small salty fish.
It was all delish and I was so happy. So much better than the last time i went to an Indonesian restaurant in Queens - Upi Jaya. Although I should really go back to Upi Jaya and make sure it's not as good. Then I'll also go to Minang Asli to be doubley sure which is best : )
