    Default Jakarta Indonesia

    Start this thread, my future Jakarta postings will be here.

    Ok start with food la. Went to a Pala Adas Indonesian Bistro for lunch with 5 staff

    Nice deco


    Avocado is probably Indonesian's favourite drink, I personally don't like because it thick and heavy fortified with milk, sugar and chocolate


    Kangkong balacan - I like this type of small kangkong


    Brinjal - shiok


    Pandan rice


    Pork ribs done 3 different ways (please don't ask me if I have muslim staff, don't ask don't talk just eat)


    Beautiful and juicy fried chicken


    Chili giant prawns


    Sliced beef with ginger


    Gurame with herbs


    Gurame with curry

    Went to an open air makan place tonight





    This is what they call Amei as in prawn noodle hay-mee however it looks like mee-rebus, smells like mee-rebus and taste a lot like mee-rebus. I wonder why they don't call it mee-rebus. Ok there are some differences it does not contain tau-gua nor the green cut chili


    This is the tall for Amie


    Then there is this thing called LapChoy, looks like our Ngor Hiang with different fried stuff, you can't chose what you want as it comes in a set


    however the surprise in in the inside - towgay and kangkong in starcy slightly sweet sauce


    This is the stall for lapchoy

    Then there is this Popiah stall







    The above looks very similar to our popiah however the difference with Singapore's popiah is they add generous amount of chicken meat and also chicken crispy floss. Tasted pretty good



    Skin is a little thick though

    I tried there in some luwak coffee joint. I had also bought some packets back from an exporter for family and friends. Have to be honest that I don't really know how to appreciate this coffee. Still love our old style coffee-shop kopi-O

    Their BBQ food is one of the best because they use a lot of Xiang Liao to marinate the meat.

    Breakfast at a typical Chinese run coffee shop in northern Jakarta. Like our coffee shop there are many stalls. It always amazes me the cost of makan in a Chinese run establishment is not much different from Singapore

    Let's take a look:

    Black coffee IDR 12,000 or our $1.20, have to say this is not a good comparison as its a very large cup. Coffee is great

    Two eggs are IDR10,000 or $1


    Chicken porridge with egg IDR25,000 or $2.50


    U-char-kway IDR4,000 or 40 cents each this will be 80 cents

    Went to a road side roti chanai stall last night for dinner.



    Felt like having martabak so ordered a kambing martabak. It is nothing like our martabak. First the kambing was not in the roti instead it was in the curry, have to say the kambing is very nice cos they used goat as kambing instead of lamb or sheep here I think



    Coming back to the martabak, its very thick with eggs and vegetables and some potatoes but instead of being wrapped by the roti the roti was fried and the eggs and veges poured on top. So its different but because they are very generous with the egg I have to say it tasted very nice.



    The above costs $4.00 Ok another surprise here, I saw a bachang stall selling chee cheong fan so ordered a plate. Came without any chili nor sweet sauce instead its full of bawang goreng with sesame oil and some soya sauce like "oil and soya sauce" our version. Problem is its served cold. Nevertheless because I like bawang goreng I still find it nice. Costs $1.50
