Coconuts Jakarta F&B News

As a megalopolis with over 10 million inhabitants, there are a lot of hungry people in Jakarta and their tastes are changing all the time. While nasi goreng, bakso and sate will remain perennially popular perut-fillers, new food trends take hold of Jakarta’s F&B scene at an ever increasing pace. One of the biggest changes to Jakarta’s food scene in recent times is the development of small vendors who ply their tasty treats at regular pop-up markets such as Brightspot or at hipster-centric food courts such as Pasar Santa. These small scale businesses take the ethos of Jakarta’s ubiquitous kaki lima and warung street food sellers and turn it up a notch with trendy takes on traditional Indonesian cuisine and new wave munchies - everything from killer fried chicken to gourmet donuts - at reasonable prices. These businesses have recently gotten a big boost with the explosion of online ordering options through app-based delivery services such as Go-Food and GrabFood which have opened up whole new customers bases for them. At the opposite end of the spectrum, high-class restaurants and bars are becoming increasingly commonplace, serving the rising middle class of sophisticated Jakarta diners. Areas such as Senopati and Pantai Indah Kapuk see flashy new restaurants opening just about every month, each bringing with them new gimmicks and new cuisines to try and earn an edge in the hypercompetitive battle for Jakartans’ appetites. You can count on Coconuts Jakarta to bring you the latest food news, from new restaurants openings to money saving promos to the most Instagrammable food porn that the Indonesian capital has to offer.
