A Jakartan Culinary Adventure

Other Cuisines

Jakarta, located in the island of Java, is known as one of the great food cities in the world. It's particularly renowned for its street food scene, which features dishes from all over the country, brought my migrants to the city as well as its native inhabitants, the Betawi. Exploring Jakartan cuisine is not really different than exploring Indonesian cuisine, which I'd done recently. I concentrated in making some of its most famous street dishes and, as it's usual with Indonesian food, I was amply rewarded.
