Indonesian Kitchen

I’m on a mission to try all the southeast Asian restaurants in town. Well, mostly the Malaysian and Indonesian ones. Indonesian Kitchen is a small family run restaurant located on the ethically diverse International Avenue.  Not much to look at from the outside, but the interior is warmly decorated. There are also shelves of crafts from Indonesia and a small selection of dry groceries.  If I were more familiar with Indonesian cooking, I would have picked up some.

We started with the fried cassava. So good. Think of it as a spicy french fry.  The chicken curry was up next.  It was pretty average; I definitely expected more of a flavor hit. The mie goreng satisfied my craving for carbs after climbing.  It was slightly sweet, which I was also craving.  The shrimp chips and fried egg were a nice touch. Surprisingly, the tempeh was my favorite dish. Tempeh is a fermented soy product. I’ve cooked it before, and found the taste a little hard to swallow.  But this version tasted good and combined with the sambal (chilli) sauce, was very tasty.

Worth a return visit, to try some of the other dishes.

  1. I was under the mistaken impression that there were NO Indonesian or Malaysian restos in Calgary. Which one have you liked the most? Please take me with you next time!
