Dish That I Crave: Half Benteng, Half Betawi’s Nasi Ulam

Okay, I will share the story soon with you about my encounter with Pak Misjaya and his divine nasi ulam. Been around for decades and really good at what he’s doing.

But for now, feel free to savor what you are looking at. Dream on it, and when the time comes, please pay Pak Misjaya a visit at Kota area in Jakarta. You won’t regret your effort.

Quikskoop™: Bakmi Golek

Contending with its archrival, the other Bakmi you-know-who, Golek may only have fewer outlets around Jakarta but has a more robust menu. The restaurant in Rawamangun was designed for brief lunch and takeaway, but is still decent for a bit prolonged stay and family dinner nonetheless.
