Fodor's Review

Stepping into "The Laughing Javanese," off an old Haarlem street that hasn't changed in centuries, you are hit with a flash of color and pungent smells. You can sit upstairs at one of the window tables and look out over the sober gabled houses while eating kambing saté (skewers of lamb in soy sauce) and kipkarbonaade met sambal djeroek (grilled chicken with a fiery Indonesian sauce). The menu options are enormous, so you can mix and match, choosing a meal of 12 small dishes if you want.
