just a like the theme, the place were a library coffeehouse, full with books and media. the theme itself were the main differences between ordinary coffeehouse. For book lover everywhere, this place is an Elysium for books. The Owner itself were also an avid book reader who enjoy good books and good discussion about everything.
Favorite Dish: The Sausage & French Fries were great for a snack but my all-time favorite were Hot Chocolate.
This Restaurant were a quite small restaurant located in a corner of Margonda street, Kober region for the exact place.
one things were noticeable about this restaurant were the small comfort ambiance inside the restaurant. Althought small, the space were quite comfortable inside.
The food were quite delicious. although not much, but here quality were over quantity. For most of student who like to find food with extra amount of quantity, you wouldn't find it here.
the lack of quantity were covered in great length with the goodness in quantity. The food were quite superb in its own kind and the price were quite reasonable for that kind of food
Favorite Dish: Takarajima Bento were one of my favorite there although Dragon Roll were also good enough to give it a try.
Why i vote for Takarajima Bento? because those Miso Shiru Soup. Those soup were a rarity in Jakarta's Japanese Cuisine small restaurant chain. And of course the taste were true to itself.
A combination of hard work, culinary excellence and friendliness made the business grow. The small teahouse developed into an all-in-one stop for sailors to Batavia 's old port of Sunda Kelapa . 'Me teahouse provided dancing, drinks and Shanghai and Babah Peranakan (Chinese-Betawinese) dishes.
Some of the dining tables are round, and some are square and covered with glass. In one part of the I 100-seater main dining area is a stage where bands play jazzy tunes. Behind the stage is a wall decorated with 1920s- paintings of flowers,. On the other side are many framed drawings of Shanghai girls during the era.
Favorite Dish: Rijsttafel Meikwei-Meikwei (roasted duck, fried crispy eel, marinated Chinese beef, tofu, salted egg and salted Chinese cabbage served with steamed rice), as does Shanghai Blue-style roasted duck served with spiced salt and hoisin sauce.

Indonesian Restaurant within 5 star service, unique and cozy place.
Cengkeh Restaurant serves colonial style Chinese Peranakan Cuisine and is located at the Jakarta old town setting. Our idea is to create a simple, elegant, modern, yet spicy and tropical identity to complement the food style and historic site.
Favorite Dish: Icip - Icip
Oseng Iga Losari
Es Merah Delima
Pisang Kipas Goreng
Dapur Babah Elite and the adjoining Tao Bar were designed to capture the rich history of early 20th-century Java.
The restaurant has five main areas each hosting a unique décor. Entering the front door diners are transformed back in time to the atmosphere of a traditional Chinese shop house where great jars of condiments are displayed along an antique counter. Moving further into the restaurant you pass under an archway of a traditional Chinese temple.
Favorite Dish: Djawa and Babah heritage cuisine is featured on the menu. This type of food is considered the everyday food of the peranakan culture and has been sourced from many areas around the island of Java. Nasik Tjampoer Babah, which is pandanus rice mixed with nine kinds of lavish Javanese Lauk Pauk, Nasik Goreng Bang Samin, which is inspired by a Javanese-style fried rice, or Bebek Goreng Boemboe Lengkoeas (fried duck marinated with special Galangal sauce) are items that are hard to resist. The Dutch influence is also represented on the menu with Biefstuk Compleet Oen (pan fried beef tenderloins served with classic fried potatoes, string beans, and carrots).
Drink: Plasir D Amour (lemon with palm sugar and lemongrass)
The restaurant specialty is Bak Kut Teh, but they also serve various Chinese dishes. Overall I think this place was great as the dishes tasted quite delicious. And most of all, the price was very reasonable.

Gerobak is what the locals call a small food cart. These carts are all over Jakarta selling all sorts of cheap food ranging from noodles to fried tit bits and are able to just move their little carts all around. I ate most of my meals at these gerobak because the choices are galore and its really cheap. Most of the time, these gerobaks only provide a small stool for you to sit on without any tables. You will have to manage to hold your food on one hand while feeding yourself with another.
this is a new restaurant which is always crowded since it was opened less than a year ago. their main dishes is pancake in big portion. they have some sweet pancakes with ice cream and the other style is pancake with meat.
if your're not into pancake, they hav steak, etc. and you can change your pancake into waffle if you feel waffle is better
Favorite Dish: blueberry cheese pancake
If you've done some walking around, like me, you would have noticed that there are some restaurants have plates stacked up like the masakan padang but is called Warteg. Warteg serves the same concept as the masakan padang but their cooking originates from Jawa Tengah (Tegal) and the price is cheaper than masakan padang in general.
Natrabu restaurant is mentioned in a couple of travel books that I read before getting here and since it is very close from my hotel, i decided to have a meal here. This restaurant serves masakan padang and the concept is really spectactular. The moment you sit down on the table, they start to stack dishes by dishes on top of each other. Different type and styles of chicken, vegetables, fish and etc are layed before your eyes. All you got to do is choose what you want and you pay only what you eat.
I had a total of 5 dishes with 2 rice and 1 drink at Rp75000. Its a bit more expensive compared to the other lower end masakan padang restaurant but I wanted the luxury of air-can and ambience. A small price to pay I would say.
If you still have no idea what a satay is, it is actually barbeque meat skewed to a stick. Quite a common dish a various parts of Asia.
Restaurant Jaya Agung serves the best mutton satay I have ever had in Jakarta and their satay sauce that serves together with the satay is flawless... yummy...
Bakso... bakso... I don't think a lot of tourist will even be able to pronounce this word correctly but guess what, it is the most common type of dish eaten by Indonesians. Bakso usually comes with some noodles and meat balls, egg, wanton or sort. There are so many variations of Bakso here and I doubt you will be able to try them all. I have tried a couple of them and it tastes really good and cheap.
Bakso are usually sold at gerobaks and it is usually written at the small window at the gerobak. Take a peek through the window and see what they have, if you don't like it, just move on to the next.
Check out the pictures of the few types of basko that I have tried.
Hoka Hoka Bento has been around a long time (maybe opened in 1990?) and it was probably the original Japanese fast food/take out restaurant in Jakarta.
The food has always been consistently good. It's a bit like a fast food restaurant - you grab a tray and pick what you want from the counter.
Their food is not fast-food though; you get quite a good selection of items - lots of the 'snacky'/fried selection, soups, teriyaki, etc.
Prices are cheap ... a meal for $5 or less.
They are located in the shopping malls - website seems to be under development :)
cafe hue is located at automall 2nd floor. I accidentally bumped into this resto when i was looking for a car.this restaurant stands out from the others. it is clean, hip, classy and most importantly, serves vietnamese food.Do you know how difficult it is to find vietnamese food in jakarta? anyway, i tried it and was very thrilled. the food is excellent, the service is great, and the packed restaurant speaks for itself..give it a try, you won't regret it..
Favorite Dish: pho bo!! beef noodle soup. it's very delicious tasting soup and not many get it right. another one is deep fried duck! yummy..deep fried and seasoned vietnamese style..i go so often i have tried almost all of the menu..(they should add more on the menu, really..;P)..
