Spots for Indonesian food?

indonesian mealHungry for more, Chad emails:

My girlfriend and I attended an Indonesian Cuisine and Culture class at Harmony House in Cohoes last week and the food was wonderful. The only problem is that Yono's (the restaurant that the presenter/chef owns) is the only Indonesian restaurant in the area that I can find. Supposedly the food is great but it isn't exactly affordable at ~$50 a person. Do any of the AOA readers know of any more affordable restaurants that serve Indonesian dishes in the area? (not interested in Thai or Vietnamese etc.)

Indonesia is a huge country, so there are probably many different types of food that could fit into the category "Indonesian."

Got a suggestion for Chad? Please share!

Haha, I was at the Yono class too, Chad. I thought Yono's might be the only game in town, but it looks like Ruby's Asian Bistro might have some. Never been there.

Ruby's Asian Bistro is like if the Hobbit went to Asia..it is so cute in there and the sampling of food we had was good and not HUGE portions (for me, that's a selling point).

Also, they have bubble teas and mango bubble shake...was...yum....

Ryan, thanks that's exactly what I was looking for! We'll for sure give that a try.

Yono's is the only place in the Capital District that serves "Indonesian" food. I use quotes because, while I really enjoy dinner with Yono, my guess is that you would not find dishes like this if you walked down the streets of Indonesia or in mom's kitchen. I'd say Yono's is more Indonesian inspired than authentic but boy is it yummy yummy yummy. Ruby's is not bad, but is a Pan Asian fusion place so....Yono's is it, kid ;-)

Hike! The capital district and surrounding areas from Hoosick Falls to Lake George have beautiful trails, mountains, waterfalls etc. This spring I want to get out and explore outside as much as possible..then come back and eat ice cream.
