Bali Cafe

February 22, 2010

Have you ever had Indonesian food? I can bet that most people do not even know where Indonesia is. Anyway, before I get off on a tangent, I went to Bali Café (109 Northeast 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33132) in downtown Miami. The stereotypical hole in the wall, this restaurant serves Indonesian food and sushi (for those who think sushi is from all sorts of Asian people).

As a virgin Indonesian eater, I did not know what to order. After, looking confused, I was recommended by the very nice staff, I ordered Bakmi Ayam Jakarta which is egg noodles with mushrooms, spinach, quail egg, chicken with a side of fish and meatballs in beef broth. This is an amazing noodle dish with a lot of different flavors and toppings that can help one ease into Indonesian food. I also had the Soto Betawi, which is a beef soup in milk broth seasoned with ginger, sweet soy sauce and lemon then topped with fresh tomatoes, potatoes, beattlenut chips, green onion, and fried shallot. This soup was very tasty, while my noodle dish had a lot of soy sauce flavors, this had more of a southeastern Asian flavor. Very different, but it was still very good.

Prices here are reasonable ($7-12). The staff is very nice and will answer any questions you may have. This place only accepts cash, so hit the ATM before you get here.
