LUCKYFINDS: Selamat Pagi


Located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Selamat Pagi, which translates to "Good Morning" in Indonesian, serves both traditional and inspired dishes from the magical island of Bali. A passion project started by the team behind Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, its kitchen uses sustainable meats and sources its produce locally to create dishes that explode with tropical flavors, from lemongrass and kaffir lime leaf to turmeric and coconut oil. In this episode of LUCKYINSIDER, we travel from the cement edifices of Brooklyn to the airy palm trees of Bali, Indonesia with just a short $2.75 train ride:
