This year's first Indonesian food bazaar at Masjid al-Hikmah has yet to be scheduled, but I'm told that one vendor is preparing satay, Friday afternoons till 3:00, in the mosque parking lot. (Before seeking out Good Friday fanesca, I plan to investigate in person.) According to the counterwoman at a nearby grocery, Songkran — the Thai water festival that marks the Buddhist New Year — will be held at Wat Buddha Thai Thavorn Vanaram on April 11. As at autumn's Royal Kathin Celebration, the offering of respects to the temple monks will be followed by a buffet. (Whether "water play" will figure into the festivities, I can't say.)
That same Sunday might also be occasion to try Bromo Satay House; according to a fellow working on the awning, that long-in-coming Indonesian eatery is almost ready to open. Ryan Skeen's latest restaurant, 5 & Diamond, will begin Sunday brunch service on Easter, and an abbreviated weekday breakfast (coffee and pastries, 7:00-10:00) the following day. Doc's, the mainly-takeout joint from the founder of Amy Ruth's, was shuttered on a recent midafternoon, and repeated telephone calls have gone unanswered.
