Lekker Bekker (Dutch Restaurants)

By Jakarta100bars →
Lekker Bekker - Home Style Cooking - is a Dutch / Indonesian restaurant chain with locations in Summarecon Mall Serpong, Tebet, and Alam Sutera Mall. They sell Dutch and Indonesian favourites for a reasonable price, and with average quality (to be fair, I only tasted the Bolletjes with Ice Cream 24,000rp). I went to the one in Alam Sutera. The design is cute but very girly and kitsch (plastic flowers, plastic plates hanging on the walls, box of cereals as decoration). The music played was Dutch love songs, which if you are not Dutch are very difficult to enjoy.

Balboni Italian Restaurant Jakarta

By Jakarta100bars →
Balboni is an upmarket Italian restaurant located in Kota Kasablanka Mall. It is the property of Mr. Lal De Silva,  an Australian national also the owner of the popular Harvest bakery shops, and Negev and Chateau Blanc restaurants. The concept of Balboni changed recently with the arrival of a new Italian General Manager, Andrea Gianini (who used to work in La Luce). Once a fusion Italian-Asian restaurant, Balboni is now a traditional Italian restaurant and it seems this new concept is more successful.

Riva (Park Lane Hotel)

By Jakarta100bars →
    Opened in 1998 in the Park Lane Hotel, Riva is one of the best French restaurants in Jakarta . It is a fine dining venue with mostly classic dishes: Steak au poivre, Foie gras, Salmon, Boeuf Bourguignon, etc.. Nothing experimental, you should not be too surprised by the food you will eat. The restaurant looks old-fashioned, but it feels charming and unpretentious. I really enjoyed the open kitchen, which allows you to spy on the chef while he cooks. It is always impressive to see for yourself all the efforts that come with your meal. The menu is not very long, and it changes regularly. I saw that they have it on their website here , but it isn't updated. You can still have a look to get a general idea about their food though. I chose as an appetizer the Baby Organic Spinach Salad (with Parmesan, Lemon extra virgin oil dressing, and Truffle boursin crostini) and for my main course the Steak au Poivre (Seared wagyu beef rump rolled in crush white pepper, pomme dau

Abuba Steak Restaurants

By Jakarta100bars →
Abuba Steak sounded to me like Abuja Steak, the capital of Nigeria, so I had a strong feeling against this restaurant before visiting it... Fortunately, it was a great surprise and a place I recommend to everyone, excluding vegetarians. The outside doesn't look so great and would need some painting. The inside is similar to that of a warung, basic but clean, with some posters of meat ads. You have about 30 tables, and 1/4th of them were taken when I visited. Many people seemed to complain on internet about the smoke of cigarettes, but in the Abuba I visited, in Wahid Hasyim, no smoke at all since there is a private/closed room for smoking. There is also a small musholla for praying in the back... My only concern was that the AC was not functioning very well, so it was a bit hot for eating. Click on the picture to see the menu

A friendly/busy street in Tebet. A lot of nice fast food restaurants. Good music. Young and relax atmosphere. Shisha on the pavement: Excellent and cheap. 

Mamink Daeng Tata (Makassar Cuisine)

By Jakarta100bars →
  Mamink Daeng Tata is a famous Indonesian restaurant, with mostly food from Makassar, Sulawesi. They have branches in Tebet, Permata Hijau and Pasar Minggu. I tried the one located on Jalan K.H. Abdullah Syafii'e, which is quite easy to find: Coming from Jalan Rasuna Said, you need to follow Jalan Casablanca, pass Park Lane Hotel and Harris Tebet, then a fly-over bridge, and if you look carefully on your left, you will see it. Daeng Tata is a very simple place, not fancier than a warung, and it brings a mixed crowd of Indonesians from various social backgrounds. You may see a few expats, but it is rare. During the day, it can get hot since there is no AC (at least in the one I went to), so it's best to come at night, with some mosquito repellent. While most customers come for its Barbeque Ribs, I advise you to try their Coto (Soup) or their Konro (Soup with Boiled Ribs) as well, two specialties from South Sulawesi. The service is very fast, I didn't have to wait more t

Shahrazad Resto and Cafe (Arab food)

By Jakarta100bars →
Shahrazad is an arabic restaurant and café providing decent food, for reasonable prices, in an hospitable environment. This is not a place worth driving miles and miles, but if you happen to be in Tebet and you want to spend less than Rp80k to eat something else than nasi goreng, Shahrazad should not disappoint you. I tried a few dishes, and they where all relatively good value when it comes to taste/price:

Stix Bar and Live Music (Park Lane Hotel)

By The Jakarta Team →
The Stix bar was one of the first Salsa bars in Jakarta. Good salsa/latino music live band. The crowd is above 30-something. Some working girls. Stix is very famous for its steaks (especially Australian Wagyu and Black Angus beef), which a few years ago where still hard to find in Jakarta so it was there or in BATS that we had to go to escape from the noodle and rice routine...

Warung Desa (Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Warung Desa is a restaurant chain with two locations in Jakarta. The first branch, the only one I visited, is in Jalan Agus Salim (ex-Sabang) while the second, more recent, is in Tebet. They serve mainly Indonesian food, with some Chinese, Western and Arabian dishes as well. The design is rather modern and the inside is clean, with air-con. It is a big step-up for the usual "Rumah Makan", even though the prices are only slightly higher. The nasi goreng for instance costs only Rp12,000++, and the mie ayam Rp12,000++.
