The Momo Japanese Restaurant (Senopati) CLOSED

By Jakarta100bars →
The Momo is a modern Japanese restaurant located on Jalan Senopati, just next to Three Buns 's burger joint. I only had a drink there, a fresh orange juice that didn't taste very good. The menu was interesting and if you are a fan of modern Japanese fusion cuisine, you should probably try The Momo. It also has a neat design, unsual for a Japanese restaurant, excellent staff (among which beautiful waitresses) and good music. Read more on this blog: The Best Japanese Restaurants in Jakarta  

Holy Gyu (Kebayoran Baru)

By Nyoman →
Well, I was supposed to go to Taco Local on Jl Panglima Polim, but it was closed, under renovation. so I decided to go to the restaurant right in front "Holy Gyu". It is a Japanese Grill, but in a more casual way. The place is very small and looks more like a fast-food chain. I went there on a Saturday night and the place was almost full, mostly Indonesian crowd. I really liked the meat I had. Both the meat and the vegetables were tasty  This place is for meat lovers, especially people who love Japanese-style meat, with Soy Sauce and vegetables on the side. Considering the high price of meat in Jakarta and in Indonesia in general, this place offers very affordable dishes. For 2 people we only paid 200 000 Rp. Usually, this can be the price of one dish in some Jakarta Restaurants. You also can have some Kobe Beef, which is known to be one of the most delicious beef in the world...

Pong Me (Ping Pong Lounge)

By Jakarta100bars →
Pong Me is probably the first Ping Pong Lounge in Jakarta. The concept is quite simple, it is a bar/lounge with ping pong tables available for customers. The tables are free to use from 11am to 2pm, then you will have to pay 100,000 rp per hour. The management also organizes regular small competitions (networking nights on Monday for instance). I visited for a late lunch and the music was quite loud, a mix of all the current popular pop songs. I would have expected the crowd to be mostly hipsters and youngsters, but all customers I saw where young executives in their 30s/40s. The menu has nothing special, it is the standard combination of popular western and asian dishes: Pastas, Pizzas, Sandwiches, Nasi Goreng, Burger, etc. I took the Beef Quesadillas at 72,500k ++ . It was good, but it is not very difficult to make so I would not judge their food based on this only. I also had a Fresh Orange Juice which was actually fresh (but expensive at 55,000rp++)

Holy Crab (Seafood Restaurant Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Holy Crab is one of the most happening new restaurants of 2014. It is exactly the kind of concept that works well with Jakartans as it combines food, fun and novelty. For once, it is not in a mall, and its owner, Albert Wijaya, has a background in the kitchen from Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Los Angeles. He is also the Executive Chef of Holy Crab. As the name suggest, Holy Crab serves various kinds of imported crabs (from Alaska) with a Cajun spicy sauce. It could be a restaurant like much others, but a few things make it rather unique: - Clients are given a plastic apron/bib before eating. You can see everyone wearing it and it sets the atmosphere: Relaxed and fun. - There are no plates, you eat directly off the table (where a paper is set) with your finger - You can refill your soft drinks as much as you want - Limited menu: It is mostly crab with also shrimps, lobsters and clams. - The crabs are huge: We had only 2 legs of the King Crab and it was more th

White Hunter Ribs & Steaks (Indonesia)

By Jakarta100bars →
I tried White Hunter because it is one of the few Western-looking restaurants in Emporium Mall Pluit.  It is next to Han Gang and Incognito, which both belong to the same Medanese owner. I visited around 6pm and it was rather empty. Even worse, no music was playing so I was not sure if it was opened or not. I had a hamburger. The presentation was ok, but the meat was cold and not 100% beef. It really did not taste good. The only thing that saved the place was the staff who was very friendly.

Pad@28 Bar, Bistro & Coffee Corner

By Jakarta100bars →
This review was written by a Max, a reader of this blog: Located there, on the corner of Jalan Senopati and the road that takes you to SCBD, Pacific Place, SCBD Beergarden etc., lies a really nice restaurant called PAD@28. And I happen to believe that it is just about to make a big splash onto the gastro-scene of Jakarta. There are a few reasons for this belief:     1.    It is always buzzing with action. Weirdly enough, there aren't as many expats as you might expect from a place that serves duck confit, very well executed steaks, pork dishes (you heard me right - PORK, including a charcutterie platter) and really nice shots and cocktails. Mostly right now the clientel is still rich Jakartans in their late twenties and early thirties, with some 40+ people who still feel young.

Beautika (Manado Food)

By Jakarta100bars →
Beautika is the most reputed Manadonese restaurant in Jakarta, and my second favourite after Ikan Tude . It actually started as a beauty salon (hence the name), which was also serving some specialties from Manado. With time, the food became the main source of revenue for the owner and he finally opened a proper restaurant in 2001. The food, as spicy as spicy can be, is mostly delicious and authentic. 2 problems: I imagine that the fish is frozen and I believe they do not serve pork. For these reasons, it won't save you a trip to Manado if you want to experience the original taste... At last, it is way too expensive. My total bill for two people was Rp350,000, and we only had about 5/6 dishes to share.   Overall: I recommend Beautika for anyone who wants to try quality Indonesian food, regardless of the price, in a clean/hygienic setting. The atmosphere is rather functional: Tables and a TV, so I wouldn't advise it for a date or for important dinners.

Pyongyang (North Korean Restaurant & Karaoke)

By Jakarta100bars →
  I discovered Pyongyang thanks to a reader's comment on this blog who described the place as the best Korean restaurant in Jakarta. While it may be exaggerated, Pyongyang is still a must-try, off-the-beaten-track dining venue, mainly because this is probably the closest you'll ever get to experience North Korean culture. Pyongyang is not unique to Jakarta: It is a chain of restaurants, operated by the North Korean government, with branches all over Asia. They have been accused of being used for money-laundering, and you cannot help but wonder about the freedom of their imported, North Korean staff (read this wikipedia article for more information " Pyongyang (restaurant chain) ".

Super Steak (Kebayoran Baru)

By Jakarta100bars →
If you are looking for the best value-for-money steaks in Jakarta (much better than Abuba ), your quest should end in Super Steak. I was introduced to this place by a friend who knew the owner, and I wasn't disappointed. It is friendly and laid-back, just like having a small BBQ in your backyard, and as promised, the steaks are top-quality.

Turkuaz (Tukish Jakarta Restaurant)

By Jakarta100bars →
  To my knowledge, Turkuaz is only the second Turkish restaurant to open in Jakarta. Sesai Zorlu, its owner and chef, worked in the first one, Anatolia , for 10 years. From what I've heard, since he left, the quality of the food in the latter has been deteriorating and it is no longer the great restaurant it used to be. If anyone can confirm it would be appreciated... Turkuaz is quite small, with only about 30 sits available. There are plans to expand by the end of the year, with two private room and a lounge upstairs to smoke shisha. When we visited, on a Saturday night, it was full and we had to wait for 10 minutes to get a table. To avoid that, you can make a reservation by calling first at the following number: +62-21 7279 5853.
