Besides Indonesia itself, the other place where you can eat great Indonesian food is the Netherlands, due to the legacy of colonialism and the East India Company. In Amsterdam there are many Indonesian restaurants but one of the best, no doubt, is the Tujuh Maret, where you can taste the typical "Rijsttafel", a rice table with 22 bowls of vegetables, meat and chicken with varying degrees of spice. An adaptation of the great Indonesian food to suit the appetite of the Dutch settlers. Of course you have to be hungry!
Its near RijksmuseumIts, between Vondelpark and the Van Gogh Museum and is one of the oldest and most famous Indonesian restaurants in Holland. The treatment was great and the waiters were very friendly. On the menu (in English) i´ll explain what you can eat in Rijsttafel. The price is 29.50 per person and consists of 20 unusual dishes: - Nasi - Sajor - Babi Ketjap - Daging Mature - Ajam - Sateh - Krupuk - Sajoran SG - SG Tahu - SG Kering - Gado Gado - Serundeng - Pisang Goreng - Rudjak Manis - Atjar - Sambal - Katjang
A rough translation: Beef, chicken, pork, rice, soybean, cucumber, toasted coconut, tofu, omelette, meatballs, fried plantains, soup, sauces ... It's like 20 different tapas. They have a variety so if you like to try something new you'll love it. It is quick and friendly, has a terrace for coffee and we were seated quickly. As a picture paints a thousand words, thanks to the waiter, you can see for yourselves. Anyway, we sure loved it!
