Hi folks, Just want to share that I think I found a real great place for steak from a totally unexpected source, a Dutch resto. I had a meeting in Pancoran this morning and was totally famished. The nearest place for lunch I could think of was at TIS / Tebet. They have a Hema Dutch Resto there and I saw very reasonable priced tenderloin steak. I didn't expect much but just wanted to get my hands on some beef! 20 minutes a lean and somewhat well done looking steak was presented before me. I took a bite and it was delicious!  The only thing I think they could have done is put the gravy on the side and give options (it was far too sweet to my liking). But the meat is a totally different thing altogether. when I left I passed by flyers they put on front and they justifiably out "The Best Sirloin Steak in Town" (OK so I had some tenderloin, but I don't hesitate to believe them for a second!) Damage done: Rp. 101.000 incl tax and tips for a piece of tasty steak and side dishes of mashed potato and veggies, plus an ice lemon tea. It is soooo much more reasonable and tasty compared to some of the so called steak houses we find around here. i will be going back for sure. anybody with other good experiences please do reply to the thread with a review. thanks!

I have an upcoming celebration and my friends are keen to take me to eat some good Mexican food. As far as I know there are a few Mexican restaurants like Amigos, Hacienda as well as the Caliente that used to be in Kemang village and now moved to PIK. I want a new environment and perhaps a new interpretation of Mexican. Does anyone know where I can find other places in Jakarta?

Hey folks, I'm honing in my cooking skills and taking some lessons from an intl cooking class. i will be looking for good and original ingredients for Italian, Indian, Japanese, Korean and Indonesian recipes. local ingredients will be no issue. I also got from friends there names of stores with a good supply of typical ingredients. having some challenge with the Indian, Japanese and Korean stuff. I know around Senopati and Blok M are a few for the last two cuisines. can you suggest others for comparison?

Recently I was offered at an event some dodol garut and the hosts said this was a local sweet. i couldn't figure out what this was made of. It had a chewy texture to it, like a snackbar, but was slightly hard on the outside and very glutinous inside. tried to find out more about the recipe, as I love to try new things but don't know the ingredients. Any recipes for this?

Hi y'all, my friends from Bali told me about cheap wine made in Bali named Hatten. I really want to try some, but no way to get out of this town this month, or following months. I don't know where to buy it in Jakarta. Is there any recommendation of other cheap wines?

I know some of the places n Kemang which serve Turkish food. Anatolia which has been around forever and also the relatively new Istanbul on Ampera. Are there any newer ones around? Has anyone tried Turkuaz in Kebayoran Baru? Appreciate your inputs, as I will be hosting some friends who fancy this sort of food. Dev Gru

Considering my most favorite food all the time is sushi, making it by my own should be more satisfying. The thing is I wasn't born to cook. I'm not gonna give up anyway, I'm willing to take sushi class for my cooking adventure. I have someone told me that Sakura Japanese restaurant usually has a class for sushi making but I can't find any information for October, is there any else? Can't help to start my adventure :)

Just for my consideration, I've never tried Korean cuisine but Kimchi <which I didn't digest very well> according to your experiences guys, where's the best Korean restaurant you've been to so far in Jakarta? Heard about the Bulgoghi or something sounds alike <this one, perhaps will go through my digestion smoothly>. So, any stories in Jakarta area?

Been in Jakarta for almost a year I never even once dine in Lebanese restaurant. Couple days ago I drolled when I was watching AFC of Lebanese cuisine. Do you have any suggestion of the best Lebanese one in town? With cozy ambiance and extraordinary service I prefer.
