Small Reunion At Kafe Betawi


Last week I had a small reunion with my college friends. It’s been a while since the last time I met them. If the hustle and bustle of everyday life got into my nerves, usually I contact my friends, and ask them to do some window shopping, or have some cullinary adventure, eat at some place we’ve never been before.

We met up at Kafe Betawi, that’s located in Cilandak Townsquare, South Jakarta. This is the first time we had lunch at this restaurant. Several times before, we always see this restaurant full at lunch or dinner hours. A full restaurant is what makes us curious. Does the food really tastes that delicious?

This Kafe Betawi is one example of the successful traditional Betawi restaurant in Jakarta. I love the decoration. I feel myself drawn back in time to the old Jakarta.

Cincau.. Or grass jelly (see: wikipedia)

We were offered two choices as sweeteners to add to the Cincau Drink.  Sugar syrup, or palm sugar. We chose palm sugar. It’s the right choice. The cincau drink tastes very delicious.


I ordered this drink. Having sekoteng at noon, in the middle of Jakarta.. Isn’t a good idea. See: Sekoteng.


And this is my lunch! Ketoprak. ^_^


That’s my friend’s dish.. Gado-gado and es campur.

Overall, the dishes tastes delicious. The price here ranges from around IDR 20.000 to above.


Me and my college friends. I miss you, guys! 😀


We should meet again some other times… ^_^
