Duarte isn't far from my place. I gotta check out the Indo Food Fair now! Thanks for the info, Kirk!


Oh, if only we had good Indo food in San Diego! I suppose this isn't too far away so I'll have to make the trek sometime.


wow what a great find!

Wandering Chopsticks

Funny. I was just here a few weeks ago. Looks like we just missed each other!


Hi Eileen - Check it out, it's very low keyed, and the folks there are really nice.

Hi Sharon - The only place is Bali Thai....and it's pretty pricey. If you're ever in LA, you may want to check this place out.

Hi Kat - Pretty food, huh?

Hi WC - You know....I'm amazed we still haven't run into each other! I was looking for a post, but I'm guessing you haven't completed it I'm looking forward to it.


I had relatives in Duarte and used to come up in the summers to visit... I'd almost think about visiting Duarte just for this food fair though!


Yeah, gudeg is supposed to be (almost excessively) palm-sugar sweet. (It's often said to be the dish that separates Yogya-ites from other Central Javanese!)



YOU FINALLY MADE IT! You should've seen me when I read your post. GRINNING THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH!

I'm also excited to know that WC went there. Lookin' forward to that post too.

So far, word's been slow to get out. My parents, who are there almost every week, has said that it's slower than usual. At the peak of its popularity, there's no parking anywhere near the place!

I'm glad you go to try some of the food. Like all things, some vendors are better than others. But all are authentic!


Hi FH - I really enjoyed should check it out if you're ever in the area.

Hi Ed - Well, that stuff was sweet.

Hi Elmo - Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed the post! Maybe you should do an update....I'd like to see this thrive. The vendors were some of the nicest (and most patient) I've ever dealt with!

Pepsi Monster

Wait up...everybody went? Damn, I didn't know that. We should meet up somewhere in that festival. Ha!


Hi PM - Well, where were you??? LOL! Check it out, it is small, but the folks are nice, and it has Elmo's stamp of approval.


waw, glad u like indonesian food. Yep, gudeg is supposed to be really sweet... All the food in your pics looks like they come straight from indonesia.


Hi Uran - Thanks for dropping by.....I like "food"....


"And if you're wondering, Wat Thai Temple's Food Court is back in action, though on Sunday's only."

No way! Best news I've heard in a while... ("Home" for me is in the SF Valley, and "school" is La Jolla; so I'm getting the best of both worlds, right?)

Might head to sab-e-lee today... mmm.


Hi Raihan - That is good news isn't it? I hope to be able to check it out soon.

Kirk, Yo So lucky! Love Indonesian food. One of my friends made me fresh Sambal. Its amazing, so much better than the sambal from the store.


Hi Jeffrey - Oh can't compare....


Hi Kirk,

good to know that it's on again. For a few years, being an Indonesian, I used to drive up there at least 4 times a year just to go and boy, was it a big surprise to find it closed down for good.

I'm going to have to drive up again.



Hi Didi - As of April it was still going strong.
