None of the other places on this gang had any lunch time dinners. This one had a few westerners sitting at tables eating and drinking so as we were hungry we joined them. Food was fine, nothing special, service was attentive and the beer was cold.

Nice place, nice people, inedible food
My wife and I had a drink in Oxen Free, but wanted to move on, we actually had 2 very good and plentiful lunches in Oxen Free later in the week. It's many years since we ate in Atap, but rated the food and was disappointed to find it now closed. So in a circular motion we looked for somewhere else, before maybe going back to Oxen Free. As we passed a Masjid down a small gang there was Superman. The restaurant is in a beautiful authentic juglo, a little lacking in atmosphere at the early hour we were there, but I'll bet it gets lively. Chi and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. I ordered Lamb Kebab and my wife Chicken Sate, I probably had a juice and my wife an orange juice. My wife's Sate arrive first and I could see that she wasn't happy. But my Lamb Kebab was inedible. The Lamb (if it was Lamb) was so dry and hard I could not tell where the Lamb ended and the skewer began. It was covered in a fruit curry which was like a student experiment, just awful. Portions were huge, which is not welcome when the food is so bad. I think the price was reasonable, but not given that I coudn't eat the food. I am sure that Superman is great for a cheap drink, maybe even something simple like breakfast and possibly the Chinese dishes, but not for anything more advanced. I guess like all Indonesians Chi beleives that all bules eat bland food and thinks that she is getting it right for her customers. But oh dear, it really was bad.
