    Indonesia’s Expat Cravings – Whaddaya Really Miss? 

    interesting article in the ever-readable expat magazine this  – https://indonesiaexpat.biz/featured/three-products-that-most-expats-miss-in-bali/ –which prompts me to mention stuffing.

    The magazine writer is concerned about what cannot be got in Bali, where I’d have expected the huge foreign community would be well catered for.

    My stuffing odysseys take place here in Jakarta, and a lot of ground has been covered, since I’m out on the town at least four or five days a week.

    Alas, stuffing’s a food-stuff I’ve looked for in vain, even venturing to posh Kemang, that South Jakarta area, where high-salaried foreigners abound, and pricey stores cater to their longings.

    So far, no luck.

    It’s no big deal, and if need be, the delicious product can be acquired on my Australia outings, or brought by those who come thence to spend time with me.


    Yet it seems strange that all kinds of exotic edibles are available in Jakarta, except for stuffing!

      I never had this good food till I went to eat with my foreign friends.
      It is very delicious.
      Sorry, Ross but I think they got it in abroad.

      Oh yes, I had it in Singapore and I love it.
      You know already, it is on menus in the big hotels and some restos in Kuningan.
      B.I.Y. is a problem. I do not know where you can buy it yourself but I will look and if I see then I will tell you.

      Somebody, I thought it was you, told me that McGettigans in Kuningan had a chef who did excellent stuffing.
      I know you told us you once made your own but if that was too much like hard work and you want to get the packeted stuff, have you tried Kemchicks in Kemang?

    Jakarta – Hurray for Hooters! But Beware Of Primitives! 

    Delighted to read that the Hooters restaurant chain are said to be planning to open a branch in Jakarta.

    As it is purported to be in posh Kemang, an area of high prices, it’s unlikely I will hang out there too often.



    But given the photo posted on their Facebook page, I reckon an occasional visit will be worth the expense!

    Notwithstanding all that, one must hope they are recruiting not only typically beautiful Indonesian girls but also plenty of sturdy doormen, because here in Indonesia there are a lot of primitives who regard women as a ‘limited’ part of God’s Creation…

    …and find their beauty unsettling, to say the least.

    We can’t forget the bigot brutes who ranted and raged, and to President SBY’s shame, got the Miss World 2013 contest re-located to Bali from Sentul, which is just up the road from the capital.

    Islamist Bigot Victory – No Miss World in West Java! 

    Hizbut Tahrir and the IslamoNazi FPI were foremost in their opposition…

    …and while the drabs in the photo above are of course entitled to demonstrate their backwardness by marching, there was disgusting abuse, as well as overt threats of violence, against the girls two years ago.

    Nor should we forget how the innocuous Indonesian edition of Playboy was hounded from Jakarta.

    And that wasn’t just the bigot gangs but the state apparatus at work.

    The hapless editor was put in prison, and it took a long time to get him released.

    So I wish the ‘breastaurant’ business, at which, for sure, no breasts will be on display, merely, one hopes, a nice bit of cleavage, all the luck in the world.

    Rest assured, they’ll need it!

      Is this place open yet, Ross?
      I am coming through Jakarta soon and it sounds like a good idea..

        Good evening, Sin!
        I have had my friend here look at their Facebook page ( I’m banned from Facebook for publicising Islamist atrocity) and it seems it’s ‘opening soon.’
        Judging from the photographs to be found on Google, I’d say you will enjoy your visit to Hooters if it is open by the time you come to Jakarta!

    Pity Kemang’s so darned isolated and jammed with traffic, because these three yummies look like they’re worth the effort of toddling along on the 10th.

    Indonesia Expat Magazine- Always A Rewarding Read! 

    Not paying much attention today, got a few bottles of Anker to drink out front on this magnificently hot arvo. Also have Indonesia Expat to read, picked up on my dawdle around town yesterday.

    • I took a brief nostalgic detour round Jaksa, a scene of dereliction, the Obama Bar seemingly defunct (or has it moved?) and Romance Cafe sinking into a ruinous state, a sad loss still, after four years or is it more?

    I only went to Jaksa to exchange some books, but Ning’s little store was closed for the holiday.

    So off to Ya Udah, quieter than usual, where a couple of reasonably priced  Bintangs accompanied me for the hour or so I spent there.

    • posh cats
    • ooooooooooooooooooo
    • …but also burst out laughing at some of the ads.

    There was one depicting some blonde bint hovering by a sink in a posh restroom, in a dress which was obviously designed for easy access to body-parts not allowed on our tv by the Indonesian censors.


    • falatehan Jalan Falatehan
    • ———————————
    • The said bog was way too fancy to be that more or less uni-sex facility in D’s Place on Jl. Falatehan, but she could do well there.

    What was it advertising?

    Posh taps!

    Seriously! Who advertises taps?

    a tap’s a tap, for pity’s sake’


    • Who shops for posh taps?

    Presumably the guy who masquerades as the ‘Clandestine Critic.’

    He actually writes amusingly of the joints he goes to, but although I had a chortle or two at his put-downs of the standard of service and the food, do he and I live in the same city?

    His reported bill for two people was over a MILLION RUPIAH!

    I pay about Rp.15000 for a very tasty and filling meal in my warteg.


    • warteg
    • ————————
    • Maybe if I wanted to impress some hoity-toity slapper encountered in the Mo Bar Ladies’ Night, I would stretch to Ya Udah, but c’mon, a HUNDRED dollars plus-plus to capture her heart?

    In a city where many people get by on a monthly income less than he paid for his dinner?

    • dignif
    • YUK!

    Having said that, his comments on fish and chips held my attention for seconds and seconds. Rp.140,000? That’s twice what I paid for PROPER fish n chips in Sydney.

    He moans about how the pub concept ought to be tried seriously in snobby Kemang, but how about the chipper concept?

    Real fish n chips is HARD to get here. 

    Fish and Chips in Jakarta! A Veritable Grail-Quest! 

    A lot of Indonesians think chips should appear (and taste) like fries, as Yanks call them.

    If some guy or gal opened a REAL chipper – not in Kemang, please; it’s such an isolated kampung due to the terrible traffic – maybe in Blok M or Kota – it could be a gold-mine!



    And Indonesia has not been lumbered with the moronic hang-ups afflicting the UK, where it’s now forbidden by health nazis to wrap the food of the gods in old news-papers…

    Like I say, Ankers away today…I’ll resume this tomorrow!
