Must-Go Places in Jakarta: Kemang (South Jakarta)

1. Ecology Bistro & Lounge

Their ambience is simply gorgeous, with alot of natural sunlight, wood, and greenery! My pictures simply cannot do it justice, hence I uploaded a video. You can also google and check out their website for a gallery of their professionally shot pictures; the place looks even more charming at night, and I understand that they organize acid jazz nights as well! This is certainly on my list of places that I’d love to come back again for! Not to mention, I loooved their Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich (in pics) especially!

2. Koi

Nope. NOT the bubble tea shop. Koi serves Italian cuisine, and is a pet friendly restaurant, complete with a bar, alfresco area, and a balinese-style furniture shop upstairs. I didn’t get to take any ambience shots, but you can always search up Google or Zomato to check it out. Food wise, their pasta is handmade and oh so fresh!

3. Dia.lo.gue

This is a unique establishment - Cafe cum Art Space cum Shop combined. A very smart play on the english word “dialogue”, there are 3 components to the word where each has its own meaning in Bahasa Indonesia. “dia” = he/she, “lo” = you, “gue” = me. Its like a space where everyone can connect, and express themselves. Very smart.

4. Sulawesi

This restaurants serves the vibes as well as authentic Sulawesi cuisine, and for sambal fanatics, there’s a entire page in their menu offering many variations of sambal that you can take home in a jar! Brought my Singaporean friends there, and they loved it!
