Jayakarta 2026 University Ave./Milvia St.; downtown.  In a simple one-room dining area, this spot serves up complex, exotic, and delicious Indonesian and Singaporean cuisine.  Sure things include #12, roti prata (grilled flat bread with yellow curry dip); #62, ayam kalasan (Javanese barbecued chicken); #69, rendang (tender beef simmered with spices and coconut milk); #75 pepes ikan (richly flavored fish cooked in a banana leaf).  More adventurous diners might want to try #66, sambal goring hati ampla (chicken gizzards with stink beans).  Well-priced lunch specials include combo plates and rice plates (#31, the nasi rames rice plate, includes a mound of jasmine rice surrounded by crispy curry chicken, spicy coconut beef, a hard-boiled egg, tiny crispy-fried anchovies and peanuts, pickles, and shrimp crackers.)  A bountiful rijsttafel smorgasbord of dishes is also available.
