MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This industrial Indonesian eatery is every bit as easy-breezy as its Oceanside hometown—imagine cheeky murals, dim lighting and a roll-up garage door entrance. But lest you consider it a divey drinking hole, be advised you’ll find some serious cooking here. Excellent nasi goreng combines fried rice with shrimp, pork belly, chicken and the yolk of a sunny egg, while charred eggplant with smoked tomato sambal and crispy fried shallots is a textural (and flavor-forward) delight.

All that spice is sure to put you in the mood for a drink, and their creative cocktails deliver, with unique low-ABV beverages showcasing house-fermented shrubs and other elixirs. On weekends, brunch is replete with inventive, crowd-pleasing eats, like a chili-lime mango tartine.
