Only open since July, Warung Siska in Redwood City already has a Michelin Plate rating, meaning dishes are carefully prepared with fresh ingredients. Chef and partner Siska Silitonga built her reputation offering innovative California-Indonesian cuisine under the food truck and pop-up ChiliCali in San Francisco, whose SoMa incubator kitchen burned down a couple of weeks after Warung Siska’s opening. Fortunately, Silitonga was able to continue filling a huge hunger for Indonesian food in the Bay Area. In the laid-back, yet bright and beautiful restaurant, try the appetizer Ihan Goku (ternate fish crudo), then a main dish of Duck Betutu (Balinese Roast Duck). Everything is served family-style, so everyone at the table will get a chance to try a bit of each dish.
