5 Great Indonesian Restaurants In Los Angeles
Located in a tiny complex on National Blvd. near Motor Ave., Simpang Asia is one of the cheapest places for lunch in Los Angeles. You can get a terrific meal for less than five dollars and though their dishes can't necessarily be categorized as refined restaurant cooking, they do serve hearty regional dishes that taste like great, home-cooked meals. Simpang is also the perfect place to go for a crash course in Indonesian food, as they specialize in popular Indonesian options. Try the mie tek-tek and the nasi kuning -- turmeric rice with roast chicken and eggs in a balado sauce. 10433 National Blvd., Los Angeles; 310-815-9075.
