Best Tacos in the Whole Bay Area..... It's not the cheapest but it is the tastiest. This place is in the same building as a sports bar so while you enjoying your tacos you can also get a couple of drinks.

Great Indonesian food! Kak-Ena cooks really authentic Indonesian dishes and serves it cafeteria style. I am surprised reading the other reviews how many non-S.E.Asians have found this place! It was a secret for a while because if you don't know the food, the language and brave opening the doors and walking into what looks like someone's living room, you won't ever experience the great food this place serves. At the counter, there are about a dozen dishes many Americans may not recognize. I can understand how all that might be quite intimidating. Here is a glossary I hope will be helpful: Rendang - everyone has to try this. It is beef stewed with 3 types if ginger(regular ginger, turmeric, galangal), chili and coconut milk. Typical Indo/Malaysian beef curry. Ikan pepes - Grilled fish (usually whole fish) with chili paste Soto betawi - Beef soup Jarkata style Soto ayam - Chicken broth with vege and Indonesian spices Nasi goreng - Fried rice Keropok - Prawn crackers Tempeh - fermented soybean cake. It is like tofu for Indonesians, except that it uses whole soybeans instead of soybean milk. It is usually cut up and sauteed. Bakwan jagung/sayur/udang - Fritters corn/vege/shrimp Gudeng - Jackfruit boiled in palm sugar and coconut milk. Opor ayam - Chicken curry in coconut milk Gulai kambing - goat curry. I believe they use goat instead of lamb at this restaurant. Goat meat has less fat thus needs to be stewed a long time to tenderize it. Kak-Ena's gulai kambing falls off the bone and tastes like she stewed it for a whole day. Satay ayam/daging - grilled chicken/beef in skewers with peanut sauce and sweet soy sauce Sambal - Chili sauce usually made with tamarind, shrimp paste, onions and lemongrass. Very spicy. Es Cendol - desert drink based on coconut milk and skewpine sago noodles (green) Hardena's menu keeps changing, so you will get more than this list covers. It is really good home cooking with ingredients from scratch. Thanks Kak-Ena and gang for preparing such good food!

Clearly, this place made an impact because i'm currently craving it. I actually just ordered a delivery, so I'm not sure about ambience, but the food's good. They're sandwiches are pretty inventive-fitting the new trend to toss fruit in them for flavor. I'm kind of in a sandwich phase, so this place fits perfectly. They weren't able to deliver to us in time, so they also threw in a few bread puddings for good measure. I'll update the review if I ever happen to wander over to the cafe.
