We ordered the Coconut Meatballs, Nasi Goreng, and the Sambal Deviled Eggs and all were equally delicious, bursting with flavor. But the eggs were especially exceptional in taste and presentation, which made them our most memorable plate. The dish came with three carefully peeled half eggs, each holding a chili and kaffir lime yolk placed in a beautiful swirl. Adding the perfect finish, a delicate slice of pickled red onion was placed on top. Simple yet effective, the little kick of lime and chili gave this Western appetizer a unique touch.
