    Damn hard to find, but worth it in the end. You will need a fully loaded credit card.

    4 good ones

    I love food and craft cocktails, and (like everyone I guess) even more so when theyre served in attractive environments: for me eating and drinking well in nice places is a big part of any holiday.
    So, in preparation for my recent Jakarta stop, I researched bars and restaurants just as hard as I researched sex, and sampled a few of them, some of which I would recommend:

    DAPUR BABAH ELITE
    Nice interior design and above average food.
    https://www.tuguhotels.com/restauran...apurbabahelite

    E&O
    Here I drank possibily the best cocktail I tasted so far in 2017, the Asian Lime Mojito. Good food also!

    PROHIBITION
    Unless its a formal dinner, ask to be seated in the hidden speakeasy bar.
    http://www.prohibition.asia

    SKYE BAR
    Cocktails were average, but I just love rooftop bars!
    https://www.ismaya.com/skye


    My 2 cents,
    Ryo

    For those folks who enjoy their food in a unique environment this place is for you. Indonesian food with a western bent, at the highest level.

    Thanks Smoothy.
    Has any of you tried Memories restaurant? Talk about unique atmosphere. It's located not far from the old Hotel Menteng.

    The food is reasonable, as I recall. Haven't been there for a while.

    Thanks Smoothy.

    I did try see and see some time ago when it first opened. I found it OK, but not at the same level as Lara Djonggrang. However I find myself at a loose end at the moment and might head in that direction to see how I feel when / if I get there.

    I appreciate your suggestions.

    They invited you in? Haha. Are you sure they weren't motioning you into the house as an invitation for sex?

    I always ask the waiter to call me a taxi. I haven't tried an uber from that restaurant before (I've never used Uber at all in Jakarta, I have tried GrabCar which is the same thing, but I prefer a taxi. The GrabCars never want to listen to me when I tell them to take a different route. In a taxi, they will go whichever way I want. I get home a lot faster in a taxi). That restaurant used to be a hospital years ago and it's supposedly one of the oldest buildings in Jakarta. The stories they tell when they give the tour are quite interesting. There is an area that is not a dining part of the restaurant that has lots of old artifacts. It's quite cool.

    No I didn't take the tour, but as I was the only person in the place when I arrived and before my dining companion turned up I was given a bit of a look around by two of the waiting staff. It is unique IMHO.

    As an aside, after eating and having many (many) wines it was time to go. I was certainly well lubricated by that stage. As my friend had other plans I was left to get back to my hotel under my own steam. My best option seemed to be Uber, which sucks in Jakarta, as the only option available was the Uber share option. Anyway I booked it and the car (a van) arrived in a minute or so. The other share riders in the van where five hijab wearing ladies.

    Anyway I jumped into the Uber, obviously reeking of booze and eventually busting for a [CodeWord134]. The ladies were muttering away to themselves and could see my obvious discomfort at the situation, the only relief they had available to them from my stench was to open every window in the van. Anyway their stop arrived they got out, they said something to the driver and motioned me into their house (I assume), and gestured me to use their toilet and continue on my way. Relief was at hand, and welcome from my perspective. I probably haven't portrayed the humor in the situation very well here, but at the time it was quite funny.

    No more Jakarta for me. Next stop Bkk.

    Nice. It's cool to do a few cultural things while in town as well as mongering. There are other somewhat similar Indo restaurants to that one in town that actually have better food (not that the food at Lara Djonggrang is not good). But Lara Djonggrang is the most unique in my opinion. Did you take the tour? The history behind that restaurant is amazing. It's the only touristy restaurant I recommend in town and I think it's a must for any visitor to Jakarta. Whenever a group of VIP's come to town and they have never been to Jakarta before, I take them there. It's a unique restaurant like you don't find in other countries and is truly indicative of Indonesia.

    If you liked Lara Djonggrang (I personally don't much but maybe I was there on a bad night) you should try the related restaurant in the same general area of Menteng, https://www.tuguhotels.com/restauran...a/kunstkring/. Tugu Kunstkring is one of my favorites and it too has a very unique atmosphere.

    I haven't been in a while, but used to like to go to all of those places as well as to Benihana on Wednesday nights, also Sunday night at that place in the restaurant in the building next to MMC hospital. The same salsa crowd at every venue. I can't go every night like those salsa addicts do, but it's a good time.

    If you frequent those events, I'm betting we have seen each other and very likely met.
    Yes same crowd and some of those elderly girls can really dance, even become sexy. If I was living in Jakarta, I would take lessons and learn it.

    I don't know the names, but one of the pinay guys introduced me about a year ago. A guy called Jay from Manila, talented dancer. There were a whole bunch of them, young blokes. Some agent organized for the trip, accommodation, flights. Free drinks at salsa nights and money provided for by the Indo women.

    It would have been fun, if we have met. But then again, am only in Jakarta, when lucky. Like now, have not visited in 7 months, visit only 3 days,. Still keep a motorbike there, can't wait. Will be great to run into you some time. Should you ever see some bloke trying his hardest at salsa, but zero talent, think of me.

    If you know a few salsa steps, great way to hook up, there's a shortage of men. In fact, because of the shortage, there's a little female monger circuit here. Wealthy Indonesian women flying in young salsa dancers from the Phils.

    If you don't venture all the way down near blok m, but meet near your hotel, Right next to hotel mulia is Plaza Senayan and Senayan city mall. Both malls have excellent dining.

    Smoothy and Kerrstar. I am grateful for the time you have taken to assist me. I will have a beer in your honor when I choose somewhere to go based on your advice!
