De Hooi Cafe (Pondok Indah Plaza)

By The Jakarta Team →
An excellent bar, De Hooi was not in our listing until now only because it is located a bit far from the center, in Pondok Indah, where we seldom venture. In this part of town however, it is easily the most popular and the most happening bar, attracting a good mix of both expats and locals, in an easy going and welcoming atmosphere. Many regular customer crowd the bar and it seems like most patrons know each other already.. Live music , free-wifi, and a good menu featuring American, Indian, Dutch, Indonesian food (you can take a look at it here: De Hooi menu part 1 , part 2 , part 3 , they do delivery). If you live in Pondok Indah, this is the place where you want to go to have fun.

Delta Spa (Different branches in Jakarta)

By The Jakarta Team →
Delta Spa is probably the most famous men spa in Jakarta and also the best. It is not a sex spa though: You will always get a plus-plus, but nothing more... Another similar chain of men spas in Jakarta is My Place . The masseuses in Delta Spa are usually experienced and skillful, much more than in many other more expensive massage parlours. Yet, the prices have almost doubled in the past five years, and it is no longer a cheap venue. It will cost you around 600,000rp for a 3 hour massage + the possibility to use the facilities for the whole day (jacuzzi, sauna, swimming pool, fitness equipment). Perfect way to end up a week-end of clubbing on sundays. Opening Hours: Depending on the branches, but usually everyday from 11am to 11pm. Call them first to make sure. List of Delta Spa branches in Jakarta: Delta Spa Harmoni Harmoni Plaza, Bl B 12 - 12 A unit 36 - 38 Jl. Suryopranoto No. 2, Jakarta Phone: +62-21 6358-3777 Fax: +62-21 6386-6079

The Duck King (Chinese Restaurant)

By Jakarta100bars →
I've never been a fan of large restaurant chains, but since more and more restaurants in Jakarta open a new branch as soon as they have a little success, it is hard just ignoring them. The Duck King, and its premium version "The Grand Duck King", is a medium to upscale restaurant that you will find the more often in malls in Jakarta but also in other Indonesian cities (the one I tried was in Bandung). It is always quite full because the prices are competitive and the service is professional. You can feel all employees have been trained and that their smiles are not as spontaneous as they look. The clients are quite diverse: Expats, Indonesians and also many Chinese. If you visit on Friday/Saturday night, or any other busy day, you may want to book a table in advance because it is always full.

Garuda Padang Restaurant Jakarta

By Jakarta100bars →
Padang restaurants are countless in Jakarta, and you may find one in almost every street of the city (for new comers and tourists, Padang is the name of a city in Sumatra). Most of the Padang restaurants are small street food stalls or simple "rumah makan" (basic restaurants), and unfortunately many expats can be reluctant to try this kind of establishment because the hygiene is not up to their standards. The Garuda food chain is a good way to experience Padang food because their venues are clean and comfortable, while the general atmosphere and the prices remain close from that of the original Padang food concept. After seating, the waiters will bring you about 15 different dishes, the most common ones, but you can also ask for more specific ones. Then you will be charged only for what you eat. Padang food is quite hot, though it's not, as many people think, the spiciest cuisine of Indonesia. If your stomach is fragile, ask for a lot of rice, ayam goreng bumbu, sa

Kafe Betawi (Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Kafé Betawi is a chain of Indonesian food restaurants located in various malls in Jakarta. I tried the one in Plaza Indonesia. Their concept is to sell typical street food dishes in a clean and cozy atmosphere. The prices are low, especially for malls and they are usually popular venues to eat probably for this reason. We had a few dishes in Kafe Betawi:

Martha Tilaar Spa (Many locations in Jakarta)

By The Jakarta Team →
Martha Tilaar spa is a popular place to get traditional massages in Jakarta. Excellent service, welcoming staff, nice balinese/javanese setting and not so expensive (though more than average), I recommend it. It is a huge chain so you can probably find one near where you live. There is an upmarket version called Dewi Sri Spa too. The pictures above were taken from Dewi Sri Spa facebook fan page here . You can find the location of Martha Tilaar spa and the contact number on their website here: Jakarta Martha Tilaar spa location .
