indonesian lunches

some of my favorite meals have been in indonesia – in jakarta and bali. this restaurant had some amazing period furniture pieces, deep red fabrics and walls, heavy lacquered chairs and benches.
from their website:

Dapur Babah is much more than merely a restaurant, it is a living museum that celebrates ‘Babah’ culture, the culture of the distinct group that emerged in the colonial era as result of marriages between Chinese migrants who settled in Java and the local women they took for their wives. While the newcomers retained elements of the culture of their ancestral homeland, they adapted to their local surroundings.
