Dirt Cheap Eats 2009: Batik

A recent arrival to Kentlands, this likable restaurant embodies the culinary Zeitgeist: stylish but not trendy, exotic but accessible.

Chef Yan Yu has fashioned an appealing menu of street foods from Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia, and the owners have concocted a pretty, bamboo-bedecked setting. The hawker-style dishes, including juicy steamed dumplings and glazed satays, are the most fun. Nothing tops $14.

Open daily for lunch and dinner.
