Small, gritty hawker centre
Corner of Jl Brigjen Slamet Riyadi and Jl Teuku Umar.
This self-proclaimed 'culinary tourism' spot offers all the staple local dishes, as well as Chinese food, Japanese bento and more for lunch and dinner.
Â With the food stalls set around the bamboo-clad courtyard, it's similar to a Singaporean hawker centre, but on a smaller and grittier scale.Â If you're really lucky, you may get to hear a live band playing sappy Indonesian love songs that sound like they have been delivered to you straight from the mid-1980s. The food is good, but the alto saxophone jam even better. A word of warning to those who don't speak Bahasa Indonesia: sate kuda means horse satay and sate kelinci means rabbit satay... and they aren't joking. Meals are around 7,000 to 12,000 rupiah.
