Many restaurants in Jakarta and other cities in Indonesia have been closed since the #StayAtHome advisory was issued in mid-March, and with the Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) now in place in several regions, including Jakarta, most are only open for delivery.
We may not be able to go to our favorite places for the time being, but a number of restaurants are now offering special packages to be enjoyed at home, aside from the usual app-based food delivery services we’ve all been relying on.
Here are 10 places in Jakarta we’ve gathered that offer gourmet delivery and ready-to-cook meals to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home:
Animale, the “progressive American cuisine with Mediterranean flavors” restaurant, offers takeaway specials as well as ready-to-cook pizza and pasta essentials — including pre-baked pizza base, artisan dried pasta, sliced charcuteries, and sauces. They will deliver free of charge with a minimum order of IDR150K and within 5 kilometer radius from their location.
Animale Restaurant is located at MD Place building, Setiabudi, South Jakarta. Order via Whatsapp to +62 877 7264 6253, 11am-9pm daily. Instagram
Burgreens, one of the pioneer plant-based restaurants in Jakarta, have offered the option of frozen vegan/vegetarian dishes since their early days. Now, these might come in handy especially at a time when you’re missing Burgreen’s signature healthy meals, such as mushroom and spinach chickpea patties, chick’n satay and katsu, and vegan rendang and sausages.
Cocktails To Go by Mone
Cocktails in a bottle is an invention that we didn’t know we needed, ‘nuff said. Quite a selection are on offer, from Negroni, Sangria, to Old Fashioned. Don’t worry if you’re still new to home bartending, as they also provide the garnishes and mixing instructions.

Missing your partying days at Holywings? You can now bring the experience home — albeit more lowkey — by ordering the #StayAtHome packages, which include their signature Holy Fried Chicken and a la carte rice bowls. A ready-to-cook menu is also available, such as the signature chicken wings and pentol (similar to bakso meatballs, but contains more tapioca flour than meat).
You can also complete your #PartyAtHome experience by ordering food packages with booze, as well as bottled cocktails and liquors.
Kilo Kitchen Jakarta
Kilo, the Singaporean restaurant that’s famous for their squid ink rice, brings their favorite items to your doorstep with Kilo at Home. Aside from their usual menu, the restaurant is providing more affordable dishes during the social distancing era. Aside from food, they can also deliver mocktails, cocktails, wines, and spirits.
Kilo Kitchen is located on Jalan Gunawarman No. 16, Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta. Order via Whatsapp to +62 812 99752522, 10am-10pm daily. Instagram
One of the most popular Italian restaurants in Jakarta have long been serving takeaways and ready-to-cook house-made fresh pasta and sauce, but now’s the right time to bring out the chef in you — if you’re up for it. You can order varieties of pasta from gnocchi, tagliolini, to ravioli tartufo and funghi (truffle and mushroom), as well as sauces such as pesto, ragu, and black truffle.
The hip yoga studio and eatery in Kemang offers a package of healthy meals with a choice of coffee or jamu at IDR100K++, which you can check out here. If you opt for refreshments instead, you can order their jamu or vegan lattes with ingredients such as chai, matcha, and turmeric.

Literally meaning “vegetable plate,” the vegetarian/vegan catering and delivery service is selling frozen vegan pempek (South Sumatran fish cake delicacy) with ready-to-use cuko (sweet and sour sauce) and vegan rendang. Or, if you don’t feel like cooking, you can just order their plant-based catering packages.
Jalan Terogong Raya No. 75, West Cilandak, South Jakarta. Place your inquiries for weekly or monthly catering packages on Piring Sayur’s website, or Whatsapp at +62 813 1187 7091 for delivery or pick up a day prior, 11am-5pm on Mon-Sat. Instagram
The Argentinian steak house is now offering the Sudestada-To-Go menu, which includes Sliced Spanish Iberico Ham for appetizers, empanadas, and house specialties such as chuletón (bone-attached rib steak). You can also order their wines by bottle to go with your steak. Delivery is free if you’re located within 5 kilometers of their restaurant in Menteng.
