It’s been awhile since we tried one of the new places that are sprouting around Kapitolyo. It seems like pretty soon, the entire East and West Kapitolyo will be nothing but restaurants, as many of the houses that line this quiet residential neighborhood convert to providing commercial spaces for new restaurant concepts.
Among the latest to join the the crowd is Warung Indonesian Cuisine. Warung is run by two sisters who spent many years in Indonesia. A few years back, they started a food stall at the Legaspi Sunday Market in Makati, and the success of that stall inspired them to start a restaurant. The menu is isn’t fancy or very extensive, as it changes daily. But many of the most familiar Indonesian favorites are on it. The restaurant itself is quite large, with many large but separate dining areas. The decor is minimal but with well-chosen Indonesian accents and the staff are, of course, all in batik. The effect is a place that is very clean and elegant but unmistakably Indonesian. Although there are many choices for Southeast Asian cuisine in Kapitolyo, Warung is the only one doing Indonesian.
