We went to the Bali Cafe with an Indonesian friend who swears by this restaurant insofar as being truly authentic Indonesian Cuisine. The place is small and only has ten tables and the decor is pretty basic with traditional pictures lining the walls. But, you go here for the food and not the ambience. We started off our meal with the Asian salad that had lightly cooked tuna in a delicate homemade orange sesame dressing. Our friend also ordered the Lumpia which are basically spring rolls with chicken and cabbage topped with a delicious sauce.
For our main course, we had Lontong Cap Go Meh, a combination of shredded beef on one side of the platter with chicken on the other served in a delicate coconut sauce with rice balls and crunchy rice crackers. We cut up the rice balls and soaked them in the sauce. Really good! We ordered two side dishes - Sambal Goreng Teri Kacang which consisted of peanuts with crunchy fish. The quail eggs were not on the menu but they were very small (size wise like oversized jelly beans) served in a red chili sauce.
Dessert was perhaps the most unusual dish. Es Campur is essentially a compote of tropical fruits mixed with coconut milk and crushed ice. It also included red beans which are naturally sweet. One of the more unusual fruits in this mixture were the palm seeds which I particularly liked. Very refreshing! Of course, we washed down our meal with hot green tea.
