Kafe Betawi

Kafe Betawi is a restaurant serving Jakarta street food since 1992. It has more than 10 branches in big malls in Jakarta, Surabaya, Balikpapan and Bali.
For sure, the taste and price can't be really compared with the authentic street food. It is decent but when you eat street food in a restaurant, you can not feel the real ambience and also the interesting part such as watching the food street sellers prepare and cook the food directly in front of you on their carts.
