dutch indonesian heritage cuisine


Indonesian Food Served in USA

Indonesian restaurants are hard to find in USA. The number is around 50 restaurants serving solely Indonesian fare. Some advertise with ‘Rijsttafel’ ( a Dutch term, which literally translates as “rice table”. Rijsttafel, which was created during Dutch colonial times in Indonesia, is a complete rice banquet with a selection of dishes and accompaniments — a representative sampling of (Dutch-) Indonesian cuisine. Then there are other restaurants that have Indonesian items on the menu, but are known in the community under another type of restaurant, like: Asian Fusion, Thai-Indonesian, Chinese-Indonesian, Malaysian, Dutch Fusion, Singapore etc.

Now for those who are used to eating Indonesian fare at home, going out to eat may be a far cry from Mother’s cooking. But when you do know of a good restaurant, please share with our community. We welcome your comments. How was the food, any special recommendations? What did it taste like? How was the presentation? Did you like the ambiance? How about the service; attentive waiting staff? Any menu suggestions made? In case you have photo’s please submit via info @
