Indonesian food consists of many exotic spices and herbs. Many Indonesian dishes are Chinese-influenced. Rice is the main staple of each meal, eaten as a soup or with an assortment of hot and spicy side dishes. All traditional Indonesian food is designed to complement or be made of rice. Nasi goreng (fried rice) is the most common dish, while sate (skewered meats with a spicy peanut sauce), gado-gado (bean sprouts and veggies in peanut sauce), noodles and seafood are also popular.
Chicken and goat are another common staples in Indonesian diet. Indonesia also has a large amount of fresh seafood such as tuna, shrimp, lobster, crab, anchovies, carp, prawns, and sea slugs.
Most Indonesians take with their meals tea. Water is mostly consumed only after the meal. Dutch beer also goes well with Indonesian food. In Indonesia there is a wide variety of tropical fruits grown, including apples, durians, guavas, mangoes, papayas, starfruits and rambutans.
Food is usually eaten quite rapidly and without speaking, using the fingertips or with a spoon or fork. While visitors are not expected to eat only with the right hand, do not touch food with the left hand.
I always heard of how bad the pollution is in Jakarta. When I arrived in Jakarta on the 1st day there and the sun started setting I can see why everyone always says the pollution is so bad. I guess the high volume of traffic and the emmissions from the cars has a big part to play. In my pic you can see it looks like this thick blanket of smog over the city.

Now, with DJs spinning jazzy lounge mixes, live bands, and a new outdoor dock area overlooking Taman Ria Senayan man-made pond and the ferris wheel. The selection of wine is extensive and the cocktail menu is imaginative. Service is very friendly also.
