Waroeng Jajanan is establish since March 2012, is an Indonesian Restaurant dedicated to providing Authentic Indonesian flavors to the people of America. The name is derived from the Indonesian terms ‘Waroeng’, which refers to a street-side stall, booth or shop, and ‘Jajanan’, which is slang for treats or snacks but could also refer to anything that one buys for fun.
