Concentrated and meaty is how youd describe Betawi cooking, Jakartas original food. Owner and chef Irianti Jin grew up in Indonesias capital, and her beautifully layered Betawi dishes eat like love letters home. Candlenut sauce on the lamb sate skewers is as rich as a pat of butter melting onto a steak, while tripe-studded soto babat, a galangal-flavored soup, practically glows. The dining room is bare, bland, and pink, but it only makes Jins food shine all the brighter.
