THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Julia's Indonesian Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Located in a charming, converted Craftsman-style house, family-owned Julia’s offers authentic Indonesian cuisine and warm hospitality in cozy rooms decorated with hand-carved wooden puppets and batik-covered tablecloths. If the menu overwhelms, the friendly staff will steer you in the right direction. Our recommendations include the traditional rijstafel (Dutch for "rice table"), the Dutch colonial adaptation of an Indonesian dinner of assorted meat and vegetable dishes served family-style. Favorite rijstafel dishes include empal, a sweet fried beef so tender it flakes with barely a nudge of the fork; telor balado, or hardboiled eggs blanketed in a sweet and spicy tomato sauce; and orak arik, a combination of tofu and tempeh sautéed in a sweet soy sauce. The wedang jahe, a steaming tisane spiced with the hot breath of ginger, is a panacea for all ills. Dessert drinks such as es teler, which mixes bits of avocado, shredded coconut and jackfruit into a milky beverage, is a refreshing finale to a rich, spicy meal.
