Village Voice's Description

This new off-price Sumatran café has helped to rewrite the book on Indonesian food, beginning with the signature island dish of beef rendang. Though not made with water buffalo, the meat is still unspeakably rich and coconut-sodden. Satays, too, are a revelation. The helter-skelter pile of diminutive brochettes of lamb, beef, or chicken are flung on top of longton-cubes of rice starch that are laved with a thin, briny peanut sauce. The menu also makes much of jackfruit, a vegetable that cooks up something like canned tuna.

    Changed hands in 2009, got spruced up, but so far the food is not what it once was.

    A couple of years ago, we experienced a wonderful invasion of new Indonesian places in Elmhurst. We're obsessed with the peanut-sauced Sumatran satays at Minangasli, which come on a bed of compressed rice starch called lontong.
