Hardena/Waroeng Surabaya

Top choice indonesian in South Philadelphia

Short of a trip to Jakarta you are unlikely to find better authentic Indonesian food than that served at James Beard–nominated Hardena. Order at the counter the superb-value rice plates with a choice of two dishes, or go the whole hog with a rijsttafel platter ($25) that includes eight dishes plus crackers and satay.

Chairs on casters and plastic cutlery are quirks that add to the charm.
