This new contemporary restaurant and bar is bringing the flavors of Indonesian culture and cuisine to Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo. Derived from the Indonesian language meaning, “love, affection and care,” KASIH aims to provide an education about the Southeast Asian country’s wide-ranging dialects and dishes. The menu, from renowned Indonesian chef Vindex Tengker – in collaboration with Chef de Cuisine Zachary Hamel (formerly of E.P. & L.P.) – includes a vibrant selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, all locally sourced and prepared using authentic Indonesian techniques, ingredients and accompaniments, including sambals, or spicy dipping sauces. KASIH’s culinary program features modern takes on traditional Indonesian dishes, which draw inspiration, ingredients and cooking techniques found throughout the many islands that make up Indonesia. Signature dishes include: Babi Guling, roast crackling pork belly with Balinese salad and chayote chicken broth; the Satay Ayam, a sweet soy glazed grilled chicken skewers with a peanut sauce, derived from Madura, East Java; and Asinan Kelapa Salad, Indonesian slaw with sweet and tangy dressing topped with toasted coconut-chili flakes. KASIH’s house-made sambals are made from scratch (a rare find, due to the labor that goes into making the paste for each), are available as accompaniments or as a six-course sambal sampler board. The selection of spicy dips includes Sambal Dabu Dabu, made with heirloom tomatoes, shallot, lemon basil and birds’ eye chili; Sambal Terasi, made with roasted shrimp paste, roasted Fresno birds’ eye chili and roasted tomato; and Sambal Nanas, with pineapple, chili, garlic and fresh lime, as a complement to every meal. Additionally, a raw bar offers snapper ceviche and oysters. Island-inspired desserts include the Es Teler made with fresh coconut milk, exotic seasonal fruit, avocado, cendol dumplings, shaved pandan ice and palm syrup; Pisang Goreng, fried banana drizzled with chocolate and topped with coconut whipped cream and seasonal fruit; and Srikaya Custard with sticky rice and coconut sorbet topped with turmeric-infused caramel and fresh mango. KASIH’s full bar program includes signature Indonesian-inspired libations including the Tambling with bourbon, black lemongrass tea, lemon and sage, the Lady Bird, made with mezcal, tangerine syrup, lemon and bird’s eye chili, and The Gilli, a vodka-based drink with mango tamarind syrup, lime, mint and soda. KASIH also offers a wide selection of wine and beer. Thursday; 200 S Los Angeles St, Los Angeles, CA 90012
