•For $10, you get $20 worth of Indonesian fare for dinner.
Calasan Restaurant’s lunch and dinner menus add sweet, sour, and spice to Indonesian cuisine, fast-food style, from the laid-back confines of a casual dining hall. Sweet or salty chicken, marinated overnight in a spice-infused savory bath that thoroughly enflavorates the meat, dominates the lunch hour. The specially prepared poultry sheds most of its body fat after a multistep process that involves boiling, deep-frying, and jumping jacks. Two side orders, such as yellow rice and steamed veggies, and a regular drink accompany the three-piece meal ($7.99), lending each other moral support in their final hours.
After 4 p.m., Calasan Restaurant switches to an a la carte dinner menu featuring appetizers, vegetarian dishes, and main dishes of succulent beef, chicken, and pork. While spicy coconut beef ($12.99) plants galangal roots in a lemongrass garden, krengseng beef ($12.99) capers about in a boa of tomato, garlic, and ginger, held together by shrimp paste, which is generally used by kindergarten merpersons for arts and crafts. All dinner dishes come with rice on the side and an indo salad dressed in a homemade peanut sauce.
