Dirt Cheap Eats 2007: Satay Sarinah


Amid the exotic fare on this Indonesian menu—belinjo nut crackers and the shrimp chips known as krupuk—you almost feel guilty going for something as plain as fried chicken. Suppress those feelings. The Bogor-style fried chicken ($10) is one of the menu’s best dishes. An order of acar kuning, or Indonesian pickles, provides a tangy counterpoint to the bird’s sweet, slightly crunchy skin.
