Street Smarts

DestinAsian - - THE GUIDE JAKARTA -

No visit to Jakarta is com­plete with­out sam­pling some In­done­sian street food, es­pe­cially when the tropical heat be­comes more man­age­able af­ter sun­down. Every night, Jakarta Walk­ing

Tour ( jakartawalk­ing­tour.com) takes guests on a pri­vately guided four-hour culi­nary romp through the heart of the cap­i­tal, tast­ing a va­ri­ety of dishes at off-the-radar pit stops that may be un­known even for a re­peat vis­i­tor. High­lights on the cus­tom­iz­a­ble itin­er­ary range from pop­u­lar snacks such as duck-egg martabak and Palem­bang fish cakes to what is ar­guably the city’s best nasi goreng, cooked with goat meat. Found just off Jalan Ke­bon Sirih, the lat­ter has gained cult sta­tus as a fa­vorite for Jakar­tans of all so­cial strata.
