Sky Cafe – My Favorite Indonesian

I absolutely love Sky Cafe, but I hadn’t been there since last summer. And how did I know it had been so long? Because Betty remembered! Yeah, she knew me the second time I came in, and she still knew me, months later! Yet another reason to love this place, aside from the tasty food. And what more can I say about these fried dumplings. They’re the best, just the best. I could just eat these all day long. They’re hot, meaty, magical.
In addition to the dumplings, which are a must, the other standout item on their menu is always the tofu salad. It’s hard to describe this sauce, other than the fact that I would put it on everything if I could. The salad is just pretty much iceberg lettuce, cucumbers, sprouts, fried tofu, peanuts, and then the SAUCE. It’s slightly spicy, sweet, peanut-ish, and you just want to drink it up. I don’t know how they fry these tofu cubes to be so delicious, but they just do it right. Anything would taste amazing with this sauce, but these tofu bits just go beyond. Even when my mouth burns from the spice I can’t stop eating it. It’s a must for you vegetarian folks!
This is the mie komplit. Sounds kinda french, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. It’s a bunch of noodles with pickled eggs, more fried dumplings(!), veggies, pork, and fried shallots along with a bowl of chicken broth soup. The broth was pretty meh. The noodles were much better and more exciting.
I forget the name of this one but it’s a wide flat rice noodle and seafood dish with gravy. Yum. I love wide flat rice noodles, seafood, and gravy, so how could I go wrong with this? And even though it was seafood, there was some sausage in there too, surprise! This is definitely my favorite indonesian restaurant in philly, and one of my favorite restaurants in general. It’s like an adorable hidden gem, only I wish it weren’t so hidden so that everybody could go here! And you know it’s super cheap… like crazy cheap. I promise to be back more this summer!
