Ramadan has arrived. For one month, Muslims refrain from eating and drinking from dawn to dusk.
During the fasting month, iftar is the most anticipated time of the day and is frequently seen as an opportunity to gather with friends, colleagues, or family members.
Here the list of @darihalte_kehalte’s recommended for iftar places.
Tahu Campur Pak Subari
Located on Jl. Anuraga in South Jakarta, the humble food stall is located within a walking distance to the Fatmawati MRT station. Those craving authentic Surabaya dishes may want to break-the-fast at Tahu Campur Pak Subari.
Food lovers can try tahu campur (tofu served with fresh lettuce, boiled noodles, bean sprouts and sweet and sour sauce), rawon (beef soup) cooked with kluwek (black nuts) and tahu tek telur (tofu omelet).
The stall was open from 11 a.m. until 1 a.m. And during Ramadan, they open from 3 p.m. until 1 a.m.
Location : Jl. Anuraga No. 14, Cilandak, South Jakarta
Warteg Gang Mangga
A warteg is a food stall that specifically serves a variety of Javanese dishes.
Warteg Gang Mangga located on Jl. Kemurnian V in West Jakarta.
Located near Transjakarta’s Glodok stop, the warteg was open 24 hours a day, making it suitable for both iftar and sahur (pre-dawn meal).
Warteg Gang Mangga also offers a plethora of home-cooked meals, such as fried chicken, omelets, pepes ikan (steamed fish wrapped in banana leaves), orek tempe basah (stir-fry tempeh) petai (bitter beans) and tumis kacang panjang (stir-fry long beans).
Location : Jl. Kemurnian V No. 1C, Glodok, Tamansari, West Jakarta
Nasi Lapau Jaya
Nasi Padang restaurants can be easily found across the capital.
To reach Nasi Lapau Jaya, you can use the commuter line and get off at Gondangdia Station and walk around 300 meters. Alternatively, you can also use Transjakarta and get off at Bunda Hospital.
Open at 5:30 p.m. until sahur during Ramadan, Nasi Lapau Jaya sits modestly on the roadside.
Despite its modest setting, the dishes are no less delectable than foods served in proper restaurants.
Location : Jl. Cikini 2, Menteng, Central Jakarta
Waroeng Joko Putra
To reach the warung, one can board the MRT and get off at the Blok A station. Warung Joko Putra is quite easy to find as it is located 200 meters from the station.
Open from 5 p.m., Warung Joko Putra is a go-to place for those craving for nasi uduk (rice cooked in coconut milk) and deep fried foods.
