Kembang Goela, Jakarta…only for those who don’t mind paying a little extra for upscale dining atmosphere

Beautiful, old world ambience, colonial style decor, mixed between dutch and indonesian influence., this place is a cozy place to have a long lunch or dinner.

It’s a good idea to ask the waiter beforehand whether the food is fiery. A lot of the recipes that use lots of chilies can be altered to make them less spicy. We ordered the popular dish of Soto betawi  (a kind of Indonesian creamey beef soup). If New york has its cheesecake, Jakarta has its beef soup. The one here has tasty beef broth enriched with coconut milk and a combination of herbs and spices. Though the soto betawi was a winner, the sate daging sapi wagyu and dendeng lombok legi (beef jerkey) were not memorable.

Having said all that, Kembang Goela is recommended for those who don’t mind paying a little extra to get a more upscale dining atmosphere. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

  2. Thank you for your thoughtful present of having written this article. The message seems to be given to me specifically. Our son also had a lot to learn from this – though he was the individual that found your site first. Most of us can’t imagine a more superb present than a gift to encourage that you do more.
