Glimpse of Food in Jakarta - May 2012

Nasi Soto Ayam for breakfast : ( Rp20000 (RM6.70). Not my cup of tea at all!!!! It was so difficult to find bread and buns there. Luckily I brought my own food supply from home, Soya Bean drinks, breads, buns and mineral water.

Nasi Ayam Penyet Rp20000 (RM6.70)

Nasi Ayam BBQ Rp22000 (RM7.40)

Es Cendol Durian Rp7000.00 (RM2.30). Simply tasty, sweet and concentrated but nothing beats Penang Road cendoi!! ;)  

Nasi Goreng Seafood Rp25000 (RM8.30) It was value for money as it had lots of prawns, squids, anchovies and quite a big serving too.

White rice, ikan kayu sambal and mixed vegetables, Rp8000 (RM2.70). Yes, it was really cheap and tasted good too.

Ahhh finally after 3 longs days, I managed to get a cup of tea. It was lukewarm!! I should have known better after my Medan experience. I forgot to emphasize that I wanted it "HOT!".  Rp4000 (RM1.40)

Nasi Ayam Bakar Rp22000 (RM7.40) The chicken potion is rather small. Ayam kampung perhaps ;)

Deep fried squid Rp25000 (RM8.30)

Bottom line is, I didn't enjoy the food in Jakarta as much as I enjoyed the food in Medan. Same country, two very different ways of food preparation!!

Exchange rate as of 2 May 2012 was RM1 = Rp3000
