Do you know about the secret menu at Little London Cafe?

January 5, 2011 |  7:43 am


Going to the Little London Cafe in Alhambra is kind of like going on a quest -- a tasty quest for cuisine native to Kalimantan, a province of Indonesia — the Indonesian bit of Borneo.

It helps if you know about the secret menu, and you don't mind acting the mime to get what you want. The food is worth it: The menu includes nasi campur, above, which consists of barbecued pork, pork sausage, seasoned fried chicken, flavored egg with eight spices, cucumbers, white rice, gravy and Kalimantan chili sauce on the side.

Let C. Thi Nguyen be your guide on this culinary quest to discover this week's Find. He can tell you how to navigate the menu, because it's probably not in a language you can read. (Unless you speak Indonesian.)
