131 26th St., Miami, FL 33140, United States

Just 13 tables fill this pocket-size Dutch-Indonesian restaurant, where a cozy gray banquette runs the length of the space and walls are hung with black-and-white photographs of Indonesia. Fueled by the idea that a restaurant is supposed to be hospitable, Indomania is run by the Dutch husband-and-wife team of Pieter Both and Ineke Berends. She's the chef, and he's the host on constant charm patrol, checking every table and offering free glasses of sparkling wine. Together, they dish out flavorful Dutch-colonial specialties like corn fritters with red peppers, scallions, and cilantro, and grilled duck breast scented with ginger, galanga, lime leaves, and Balinese spices served wrapped in a banana leaf. And the desserts are just as good, from fried bananas to a tart lemon pie with a flaky crust. You'll find plenty of loyal regulars here, along with middle-class families and the young and trendy.

Signature Dish: Rijsttafel, a platter with a pyramid of rice surrounded by dishes like chicken in coconut sauce, curried eggs, and chunks of beef in a sweet, soy-based kecap manis sauce.
