Cafe Batavia

Today I will show you about the second oldest building turn into a café in central Jakarta named Café Batavia. This building age is about 200 years old. Cool right?

In 1991, the owner decided to turn this building into a café. Café Batavia opened to public in 1993.

When you step into this building, you will be amazed with an elegant architecture of 19th century Jakarta during colonial era with a lot of nice photos hanging on the wall. Café Batavia is also famous among tourists around the world and becomes one of the must visited place in Jakarta. 

Café Batavia have two floors. They have live band in the first floor. But please note that the first floor is a smoking area. For more private and not smoking area, you may go to the second floor.

We were having lunch on the second floor. We ordered Nasi Campur "Menner", Fried Rice with Chicken and Salted Fish. For the drink, we tried Bajigur.

Nasi Campur "Meneer" IDR65.000

Nasi Campur "Meneer" is a traditional Indonesian cuisine comes with Rendang, Chicken Satay, vegetables, Balada Egg, Orek Tempe and Chili. This dish is one of the recommended dish at café Batavia. It's delicious indeed.

Fried Rice with Chicken and Salted Fish IDR60.000

Fried Rice with Chicken and Salted Fish is also not bad and the portion is big.

Bajigur IDR45.000

Bajigur consists of Coffee, Salt, Coconut Milk, Palm Sugar and Vanilla. Bajigur is one of traditional beverage that is quite difficult to find already. It's really nice. You must try it.

Overall, we were enjoying having lunch there. It's a pleasant experience.

Will I go there again? Yes.
