Jakarta, Indonesia

Love it or hate it, Jakarta makes an impression. But those who take the time to look beyond the noise and chaos might just discover an exciting metropolis with very unique charms. From the quaint Surabaya Street antique market to the swanky shopping malls, from the street-side warung (food stalls) to world-class restaurants, the contrast of traditional and modern are nothing short of fascinating.

Located on the northern coast of Java – the largest of over 17,000 islands that constitute Indonesia – Jakarta is also a melting pot of the country’s numerous ethnic groups. And despite the myriad cultures that make up the city, Jakartans are some of the friendliest and most hospitable people you are ever likely to meet.

Where to eat in Jakarta - Mandala


Step back in time to the Jakarta of the 1980s at this Chinese restaurant, seen by many as the best of its kind in Jakarta. Despite its small size – Mandala has only around 20 tables, some of them communal – the food here is definitely something to write home about. The restaurant’s most famous dishes include black pepper beef, omelette with crab meat and beans, and fried gurame, one of the most popular fish on Indonesian menus.

Insider Tip: Make sure you are hungry because the portions here are huge.
