cafebatavia

Suitably, you’ll find Cafe Batavia on an alleyway off St Kilda Road, right near the Indonesian consulate general. The decor does remind you of old Jakarta, the service is friendly, and the soul food of the ‘ibu kota’ (capital city) is prepared without the aid of packet spices. It makes a difference. Go for the ‘tahu isi’ (deep fried tofu stuffed with vegetables) as an entree, or the ‘batagor’ (fried fish dumpling with peanut sauce) and ‘pempek’ (fish dumpling dunked in a spicy vinaigrette sauce) for light mains.

Anda dapat menemukan Cafe Batavia di gang sebelah St Kilda Road, pas di dekat Konsulat Jendral Republik Indonesia. Dekor di sini memang mengingatkan Anda tentang kota tua Jakartan, layanannya ramah, dan makanan ‘ibu kota’ disiapkan tanpa bantuan bumbu jadi. Itu terasa sangat berbeda. Pilih tahu yang di isi sayuran sebagai makanan pembuka, atau batagor dan pempek untuk makanan utama yang ringan.
