of course we all know that the dutch occupied indonesia for some years and that as a result, there is a strong indonesian presence in holland. there are tons of indonesian restaurants in the city - in my ten day stay... only one of them was worth mention CAUSE IT WAS FANTASTIC! really, please give it a go if you are at all interested. i've been to indonesia myself, and this place has the most authentic recipes by far. the food is cheap and just plain delicious. i highly recommend their chicken satay with sticky rice and spiced green beans along side. all of it was good though, we ate there maybe four times. it's also easily reached by tram (of course i can't remember which, but my bf will - i'll ask him tonight) - and was always packed with locals. i was just going through my wallet and found their card, i remembered why i saved it = to share the love! you'll love it, i promise!

*side note: this was the first indo. restaurant we found in amsterdam (i went with the purpose of having some, it had been years), and actually we just stumbled upon it looking for our hostel (other side of city, ahah!) - got some food, it was good - but so cheap, i thought... ah, there's better. i treated my bf and i to dinner the next night, a real nice upmarket place. they offered us some "welcome drink" which we accepted, then the food came SICK AS FUCK! it tasted nothing like indonesian food, and it was costly! when we got out bill, they even ripped us for 14 euro per welcome drink NO SHIT! we were pissed. point being: there are tons of immitations out there cause people don't know better sari citra is no immitation.</span>

Man, I had some Flip food this past weekend - damn that shyt was tha shizzle!!! Funny, I've noticed Asian parties are always foodfests whereas non-Asian parties tend to be more drinkfests. Anyways, that was some damn good flan, or whatever you call it!

Talking

next to lebanese - well, shit: either lebanese or filipino are my favorite cuisines.

it's true about those asian parties too - i've only attended flip parties tho' and they drank plenty! the focus was food though. btw - did you have any of those sweet chicken barbeque sticks? i KNOW THE SECRET RECIPE! it's the marinade: 7-up, soy sauce, and a bit o' garlic... soaked overnight = who'd a thought? it's delicious anyway.

BUT i always loved those parties: not only for the food, but all the drunk's singing karaoke with those f.o.b. accents - priceless... some of the fondest memories of my early adolescence.

denise, why'd we ever have to break up as best friends?

Oh man! My mouth is watering Joan!!! Thanks for the info., I'll be sure to try them when I'm in Adam!

Just had great Vietnamese yesterday at my favorite place in Philly!

I also love Laotian food, but it's hard to find that in restaurants, you have to go to a Laotian wedding or some'ing!
