Pondok Betawi (dine in)

If I rushed back here again after almost all restrictions for eating in restaurants in Melbourne were removed, it’s because this restaurant suits my palate very well. I was born and raised in Jakarta, so the offerings of this restaurant are not unfamiliar at all. Sometimes we are lazy to cook and prefer to just order and eat. This place is much more tidy and organized than before and is already collecting a customer base for take away or dine in. We came after the lunch time peak was past. The food that we ordered this time was ketoprak, chicken satay and my favorite fried tofu. For drinks, we actually wanted iced coconut but apparently it ran out so we ordered iced cendol which was pretty good. Service remains friendly. Also the prices are reasonable. As a coffee fan after eating it feels like something is missing but the coffee was replaced by lovely traditional drinks. There is lots to try from Jakarta (Betawi) cuisine here, which means that it’s not enough to just come once.

Kalau aku kembali kesini lagi setelah hampir semua pembatasan untuk makan direstaurant dihapus itu karena restaurant ini sangat cocok dengan lidahku. Aku lahir dan besar di Jakarta, jadi menu- menu direstaurant ini sama sekali tidak asing. Kadang kita malas untuk kedapur dan lebih suka tinggal makan. Tempat makan ini sudah jauh lebih rapih dan teratur kalau di banding dulu. Juga sudah mempunyai banyak pelanggan yang memesan lalu diambil atau yang makan disitu. Kami datang setelah waktu makan siang sudah lewat. Menu yang kami pesan kali ini ketoprak, satay ayam dan tahu tempe goreng kesukaanku. Untuk minuman kami sebetulnya ingin es kelapa tapi rupanya habis jadi kita pesan es cendol yang lumayan enak. Pelayanan tetap ramah. Juga harga terbang kau. Sebagai penggemar kopi sehabis makan terasa ada yang kurang lengkap tetapi tergantikan oleh anela minuman. Disini tersedia banyak sekali makanan dari Jakarta (Betawi) yang berarti kita tidak cukup cuma datang sekali saja.
