Jakarta

"Big Durian" sums it all for the happening Jakarta - the quickening rhythms, the hustle and bustle, and the kaleidoscope of colours. The eclectic mix of the great metropolitan lifestyle blends seamlessly with the latest fashion trends and its churning economy, as the scent of excitement lingers in the warm tropical air. Towards the calmer side of the city is the wonderfully preserved Betawi culture that perfectly infuses both heritage and modern footprints into Jakarta’s unique tapestry.

Kerak Telor

Kerak Telor

The glutinous rice used for this dish must be prepared hours in advance before the cook mixes it up with duck eggs to make a rich and fulfilling omelette. Sprinkled on top of the omelette are dried shrimp, grated coconut, fried shallots and a dab of chilli. Best served with a cup of java, a must try!
