Peanuts are the "kacang" (kah-Chang) of keripik kentang kacang manis; in Indonesia the word more often connotes beans but can apply to any legume. "Manis" means sweet, to balance salt and spice; "keripik kentang" the takeout menu also calls crispy potatoes. In a nutshell: housemade potato chips, Javanese style (small, $2.50).
Previously: Spicy beef, spicy chicken, curry tofu and egg, and noodles filled out nasi Surabaya ($7). That slab of beef was much more tender than appearances would suggest; that red patch of sambal terasi, a fierce chili sauce laced with fish paste, much hotter.
