The crispy but still smooth skin and juicy meat inside dipped in a refreshing sauce really combines the best gift the ocean could give along with rich and flavorful classic Indonesian herbs.

Sundanese and Javanese food are arguably one of the most popular cuisines amongst Indonesians.

As it might be too hard to choose the best ones, we have just one in mind that definitely ranked on top.
Nusa Indah Restaurant offers authentic Sundanese and Javanese food, offered at a relatively affordable price. You can spend less than $10 for 2 people— how crazy is that! For a complete package, try to order Paket B which consists of fried chicken, soft bone milkfish, tempe, tofu, fresh vegetables, and their famous spicy sambal. Not only is it a lot, but the modest yet flavorful dish brings joy and comfort to your table. For a refreshing beverage, you can order their Es teler. The mixture of syrups, freshly cut fruits and jellies topped with shaved ice will treat your sweet tooth well.
