What Indian curry is to England, Indonesian rendang is to the Netherlands. For centuries, the Dutch claimed the Indonesian Archipelago as a colony, profiting from the spice trade. Today, Indonesian food remains popular in the Netherlands, and at Little Sister, Chef Michael van den Winkel is serving up the spice-rich cuisine with a focus on the street foods that are popular in Jakarta and Surabaya today. The Midtown room looks into the leaded-glass-encased kitchen, meant to evoke the street-hawker stalls of Kaki Lima. Cocktails are richly flavored with spices and herbs. The gin-based Ubud Hangout, for instance, blends cilantro, black pepper, and jalapeño together for fabulous depth.
