Service

Simpang Asia was like my 2nd time trying Indonesian food. The first time was at Kasih in Little Tokyo, which was more of a modern take on Indonesian cuisine. It was quite a fascinating experience eating Indonesian food, especially foods that are popular in the streets of Indonesia. Because this was my first time, I wanted to try many dishes, which I did, including the lemper (sticky rice with shredded chicken), festival rice, mei tek tek (Indonesian chow mein), nasi bungkus, laksa, and the es cendol (coconut milk drink). Everything was pretty amazing. I would say it's kind of like Thai food, but sweet with a more tropical twist to it. Everything was flavorful. I especially enjoyed the lemper and nasi bungkus.

There aren't too many Indonesian restaurants in LA, so going to a restaurant like this is an adventure. I can honestly believe that Simpang Asia is one of the best Indonesian restaurants in town. Everything is flavorful, fresh, and the menu selections are great. So definitely check this restaurant out.

I shot a YouTube video at Simpang Asia, which can be found on my YouTube channel called Rockstar Eater, which i encourage you to check out if you want a virtual overview of this place.

Real Indonesian food

I remember going to the beach in the morning in the north of Bali and buying nasi bungkus for 500 rupiah from a woman sitting at a wooden table. Nasi bungkus is rice, vegetables, egg, spices, meat wrapped snugly in a banana leaf.

I have been disappointed by most Indonesian restaurants in the U.S., making gado-gado out of Skippy peanut butter and using powdered turmeric instead of fresh. At Simpang Asia, I'm back in Indonesia at a warung, roosters crowing and kretek smoke drifting into the air. Ikan pepasan. Nasi kuning. Bakso. The fragrance and textures of the food, beautifully presented, bring back memories, right here in LA.

they have a great service, everyone seem to know everybody by greeting their name. They have really good food too. If i can say they have better food than food itself in Indonesia.
