131 26Th Street Off Collins Avenue Miami, FL 33140
This elegant but cozy restaurant off Collins Avenue, on a street that ends at the beach, has a small bar with a nice selection of wines and beers, a dozen tables, and an inviting couch that covers one side of the dining area. Indonesian food is a fusion of other Asian, Portuguese and Dutch cuisines, but has a flavor all its own. After all, Indonesia was known as the land of spices! At INDOMANIA the owner/cook has captured this flavor perfectly. The menu, though small, is authentic and includes the famous "rijstafel" or rice table: a mount of white rice surrounded by traditional dishes like chicken in coconut milk, hard boiled egg curry, cucumber pickled in sweet vinegar, fried green beans, beef stew in a sweet molasses-like sauce and a large, crisp shrimp cracker. Do try the "nasi goreng", the best fried rice you have ever tasted. Appetizers are delicious and deserts are light and refreshing. This is cuisine for the adventurous eater that has been cooked for everyone to enjoy. Indomania is worth the visit. - Mercedes de Marchena
