Don’t be alarmed by the smoke wafting across the parking lot of R.M. Sulawesi. That’s from the fish cooking on the outdoor grill beside the entrance. The food here comes from South Sulawesi, and seafood is a big part of it. Try the oddly refreshing telor ikan terbang, chewy bunches of flying fish roe, in a vinegar sauce with chilies and onions. The sop konro bakar is a hearty beef-rib soup served with a side of giant barbecued ribs. Buras, or coconut-sweetened rice cakes in banana leaves, are ideal for dipping into the soup (they’re not on the menu, so ask). The dessert es pisang ijo features slices of tart banana wrapped in sweet green coconut custard, next to a syrupy coconut gel. Cool off with a glass of es angin mamiri, a crushed-ice drink with durian, brown sugar, coconut and peanuts.
