Wayang Frankfurt – Selamat makan!

"Wayang" is the one Indonesian restaurant in Frankfurt that sets itself apart. Protip: for a full experience, ask for some tea along with with your meal...

Wayang is a Javanese word for a particular kind of theatre. Here however, you will find no drama. There are plenty of Asian restaurants in Frankfurt, but you will find only one uniquely Indonesian restaurant, and that is Wayang. Indonesian cuisine is one of the most vibrant and colourful cuisines in the world, but unlike most Asian restaurants, Wayang presents a fine selection of Indonesian dishes, from salads to noodles, soups and stews. There are noodles (Mie), rice (Nasi) and dumplings, and some dishes allow you to choose between having it with or without meat.

If you are feeling hungry, go for a Nasi Mawut with beef, topped with a fried egg - the meal for champions or for a Wayang speciality, a hearty stew with meat and rice. If you are in the mood for trying something different that you can share among friends as a snack, ask for Dadar Jagung, which is a dish of savoury deep-fried corn pastries (also available in a veggie option).

Wayang is a small place, with nothing but a few tables and a nice, discreet decoration. The food is prepared with such care and familiarity that you would almost feel like you're having a meal with an Indonesian family.

Tip: Wayang is also open on Sundays during the whole day and evening, making it a great choice for a lazy Sunday dinner. For a full experience, ask for some tea to accompany your meal.
