Indo Kitchen | Monterey Park/ Alhambra/ S. Gabriel | Indonesian | Restaurant
This small, crowded restaurant on an Alhambra side street serves a sharp, spicy brand of Padang-style cooking - meltingly tender slabs of beef rendang bathed in a dense sauce of coconut milk and spices, boiled eggs fried in a fire-breathing coating of belado, whole catfish fried to the crispness of potato chips and served with a mound of sweet, powerful fermented-shrimp sambal. When you're in the mood for a proper nasi Padang, there is nothing like it in Los Angeles.
