D’s Dad P and his friend P2 are in town, and P2 had a birthday today. We went to Borobudur in SF, near the hotel they’re staying in last night and tonight, to celebrate. We’ve been to Borobudur a few times (moi 4, D 3, P & R 2) and enjoyed it. Descriptions and prices are from the online menu. Comments are from me. We ordered:
1. Roti Prata
Pan fried layered bread served with curry dipping sauce $7.50
This is The Reason To Go To Borobudur. Fabulous! We got a second batch b/c this is what P seemed to like best.
3. Bakwan Jagung
Fried corn fritter $5.50
Photo at right. P ordered this but found the sauce too spicy and the fritters unexciting. I liked it.
Sumatra beef stew cooked with spices in coconut milk sauce $14.50
Good. I would consider ordering it again, but it was not as interesting as some things.
36. Tumis Bayam Bawang Putih
Sauteed spinach with tofu & garlic $8.50
Wish I had a photo of this! It’s delicious and beautiful – dark green spinach with a touch of red pepper.
70. Nasi Uduk / Aromatic Rice
cooked with coconut milk & lemon grass. $3,25 (x2)
Neat rice, too. Never tried this one before.
D chose a wine we’d had before, a 2012 white Bordeaux from Chateau Haut-Rian. Very good choice.
