Bakmi GM

The best place for noodles in Jakarta. It has opened since more than 50 years ago. The noodles are made manually by hand.
I love the deep fried wonton dip into the sour sweet sauce. It's a must to eat whenever you are eating at Bakmi GM.

Rumah Makan Garuda khas Minang/Melayu

Eating at a Padang restaurant can be really remarkable, not only because of the delicious food but also the waiter's attraction bringing the dishes onto the table :)

Pulau Dua

To fulfill, my ex-boss craving of Indonesian food which is ikan bakar (grilled fish) with Indonesian spices, we went for dinner at Pulau Dua seafood restaurant.

Food court

Sunday noon, I met my ex-boss from the US in Plaza Senayan. After some walking around and shopping, we went for lunch. My ex-boss was craving for Indonesian food because she has left Indonesia for more than 10 years, in the other hand, I was craving for Japanese food. Thus, we decided to go to the food court where we could find our desired food. She had her nasi uduk and me, I got my sushi. Both of us, were satisfied with our food :)
