New restaurant Minihasa marries the best of upscale, chef-driven cuisine with the authentic recipes of a real Indonesian grandma (that’s Mama Betty to you and me).
Experience the flavor-filled masterpieces of Chef John Avila and his heritage in dishes like tender beef rendang, crispy fried ayam rica rica, and vegan favorite potato turturga. Each dish is a balance of sour and spice, with plenty of savory aromas from yellow curry, lime leaf, and ginger. Initial reviews are strong on Yelp, with many noting to add the egg rolls (Mama Betty’s specialty) and a dessert to whichever entrée you choose.
Minihasa sits among the takeout restaurants at Revival Food Hall and is a great addition to the already wide variety of cuisine offered for grab and go service. Indoor seating is limited per local restrictions, but you can also opt to have Minihasa delivered to you. Be sure to check out the weekday-only eatery the next time you’re in The Loop.
