Sky is clear and weather is very hot here in Jakarta not hazy
Surprised to find a very good seafood soup at De Luca restaurant in Senayan this evening. Its got big chunky fish meat, soting, shell fish etc and costs only $8
Had a great Padang lunch today one of the best Padang I had
Long bean and brinjal and chili
Fried kampong chicken
There's also tahu and green sambal
A few roadside hawkers near my office
Fish tahu goreng seller
Rujak is our rojak but its really quite different
Another drinks seller, you see all those small packets are instant coffee or tea
Today's gasoline prices in Jakarta's Shell
A popular market north Jakarta, Indah Kaput
Food centre on second floor and market on ground floor
Ordered kopi-O and eggs from this stall
17,000 rupiah or $1.70
I like the way the egg is served - no need to break the egg as its done for you, convenient to drink it down, clean and simple
Crispy u-char-kway in Indonesia its known as cakwe (read as char-kway) this one really nice
Colleague had wonton noodle
wonton noodle shop
As you can see this market and food centre looks the same as Singapore's
Tea Garden is a type of Hong Kong care restaurant (香港茶餐厅) but originated from Malaysia, JB I think. There are a few of this in Jakarta. They serve almost anything and everything from western to chinese to Singapore hawker stuff etc. And its not very expensive too.
One small issue here - they don't serve pork
If only has pork this sang-mee will taste better
Century egg porridge again if have pork will be great but the chicken had been marinated so taste not bad.
Not expensive right? I will recommend this restaurant if craving for chinese food while in Indonesia.
One see may of these in Indonesia
A local Indonesian living and relaxing in a place like this behind him apartments where Chinese Indonesians live
Same story the local Indonesians looking for plastics to recycle their children playin at the side behind them the more well to do Chinese live
A rojak seller
Make shift gasoline stall for motorcycles - the poor motorcyclists buy from stalls like this instead of from gas station as they may have only enough money to buy a litre or half. Stalls like this more expensive than gas station
This is innovative, Pertamini. Pertamina is Indonesia's state oil company. A dig at the name.
The seller smiling at me taking photo of her stall
Makeshift tyre repair stall
Setting up his hardware stall
Tiny chicken noodle stall a bowl for 50 cents
Fruit juice stall - I wouldn't try
Fried tahu stall
Soto stall, notice the bench, table top and the cloth to shade customers from the sun
Just got back from supper. I don't take supper but then to take these photos you gotta have supper.
This is probably the most famous Nais Uduk stall in Indonesia. Nasi uduk is our nasi lemak and like our version it can be eaten almost the whole day as you can find it almost everywhere and any time.
This is Ibu Sum nasi uduk and opens at 10pm till late. Don't even think they will serve you at 9.59pm as lights will only be turn on at 10 sharp.
Arrived there at 10.30pm and already so many cars parked at the roadside
Look at the people
The spread - queue and just wait for someone to attend to you (fast moving so short wait)
Can side by the side of the spread or
Can sit next door
The staff in batik uniform
I start my queue
The fried stuff
My nasi uduk - fried omelet, begedil, fried chicken, tahu
I sit right in friont of the spread and watch customers order
You notice in the photos all the customers are local Chinese? Yes I sat there makan not once I saw a local Indonesian person. I guess it could be due to the price, I'll as my staff tomorrow.
This place look so much like our chinatown market and hawker centre. Same developer maybe.
Bro... thanks for the pics!! All the foods are so tempting. Please remember to put in the address if you can. So we go JKT can try it ourself.
For address can PM me. Cheers.

Have heard a lot about Jakarta Indonesia. But don't have practical experience about that place. Need to think about it a make a tour there.
My favourite breakfast in Indonesia is bubur ayam especially those traditional ones on the roadside like this
This is it
Was at Serpong, a district of South Tengarang about an hour drive from North Jakarta. Heard this place have a very good Sunda restaurant, Sunda is a region with its unique language and culture in the Bundung city region.
