Minangasli - 86-10 Whitney Avenue, Elmhurst, NY (Indonesian)
Located in Elmhurst Queens, a small Indonesian cafeteria - decorated even more sparsely than neighboring Upi Jaya. The menus are similiar, with Minangasli offering renditions of Ketoprak Jakarta, Lontong Sayur - and colorful drinks from Es Teler to Durian Juice (!). Prices are comparable (and equallly comfortable), running around $7.00 per dish. As comparisons go, the atmosphere of Upi Jaya runs more to my style, based on welcome warmth and ambiance. As for flavor? Neither restaurant seemed overly spicy -- a shame in my book -- but still a nice option, given the alternatives in Manhattan.
