Bali Cafe will close on Feb. 7

I’m sorry to report that Bali Cafe at 2716 E. Central is closing, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. Their last day in business will be Feb. 7.

Angga Heinrich, a former accountant, and her mother, Farietni Abbas, opened the restaurant in May, specializing in cuisine from Indonesia. I had several friends tell me that they liked the food, and it was on my “to-review” list.

New Indonesian restaurant will open this weekend

Wichita is about to get a new Indonesian restaurant.

Bali Cafe should open either Friday or Saturday in the tiny building at 2716 E. Central that’s held several Mexican restaurants over the past several years, most recently La Concina.

The restaurant is being opened by Angga Heinrich, a former accountant, and her mother, Farietni Abbas, who will head the kitchen. It”ll specialize in dishes native to Indonesia, which features lots of chicken and flavors of  basil and lemongrass.

“We don’t have Indonesian food anywhere here in Kansas,” Heinrich said. “This will be a great small niche for us.”

The dining room is tiny — with only about seven tables — so the business will be mostly a carry-out place. It will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
