At Java Indonesian Rijsttafel, chefs engineer a menu loaded with exotic Southeast Asian seafood, lamb, and vegetarian entrees alongside more subdued dishes that can tempt even the most unadventurous taste buds. Diners can kick off the culinary expedition with shrimp- and scallion-bedecked bakwan, spiced corn fritters cooked pancake-style—flat and over a lava pit. Udang belado’s fried jumbo shrimp wades through a piquant red elixir forged from onion, garlic, and a flurry of spices, and sate bali’s charbroiled chunks of beef marinate in tamarind juice and turmeric to prepare for a slide down bamboo skewers drizzled with peanut sauce. Indonesian bay leaves and lemongrass lend their flavors and best dress slacks to gulai kambing, an amalgam of tender lamb pieces simmered in light coconut milk. Patrons wash down bites with chalices of wine or guzzle glasses of garuda, a fruity potion crafted from pineapple, mango, and orange juices swirled with coconut cream.
