Eating Snakes in Jakarta

By Tibs
During a trip to Mangga Besar, I found those restaurants serving cobras in different forms (Sate Cobra, Cobra Soup, Grilled Snake, etc...). I was not really in the mood for trying but I took a few pictures...

If you are interested, they are quite easy to find, on the main street, approximately 2 kilometers east of Jalan Hayam Wuruk. You call also try this one more particularly:

King Cobra
Restaurant & Medication
Jalan Mangga Besar Raya No93C
Phone Number: +62-21 629 6087

  1. I've tried sate cobra and biawak (it's a big lizard). It was pretty good. Sate cobra's taste was similar to lamb satay in Indonesia and served with peanut sauce. I don't really remember how was sate biawak taste, but I think it's not much different to sate cobra.

  2. Hi, tried snake today also. Snake satay was good and cost 30000idr and 2000 for Rice. However i did not know that the dinner meny is on Page 3 etc. Did the mistake of ordering a snake combo at 150000, which turné out to be snake blood and liver hehehe. IT is supposedlygood for energi and sexual Stalins haha. However, tastes like a shot you once in a while ordet in a bar, and that you know vettet than to drink, men ut you still do IT hehe. Gonna check the stamina part tonight hehe.
