Bf brought me to a place where he said he had a very good mee soto there. When I heard mee soto, I thought the place sold Malay food. Then he added that the place's called Jtown. Straight away what popped inside my head was that 'J' should be related to Japan. But wait, Japanese restaurant serving mee soto? Sounds legit. But I was completely wrong when I knew that Jtown was an Indonesian restaurant, and 'J' actually referred to Jakarta!Jtown sells Jakarta street food like mie ayam (chicken noodl
Jtown sells Jakarta street food like mie ayam (chicken noodle), mie bakso (beef meatball noodle), gado-gado, and martabak manis (sweet Indonesian pancake). The menu is not really extensive, but the price is reasonable. Bakmie Ayam - $5
I opted for a simple bowl of bakmie ayam. According to them, the noodle is handmade and freshly made everyday. Unfortunately, the seasoning didn't really suit my tastebuds. Mee Goreng - $5.30
Bf ordered mee goreng, which I thought they would use Indomie at first but no haha. Beside chicken, they also put mushroom and half boiled egg. Of course I helped him eating the mushroom lol. Martabak Campur (large) - $6.20
indonesian pancake with mixed topping of chocolate and cheese
We call this 'martabak manis' or 'terang bulan'. Bf had tried this on his previous visit and loved it. Beside chocolate and cheese, other toppings available are Ovomaltine and D24 durian (eww). The large size is actually equal to small size in Indonesian street food context haha.
Overall, I recommend this to fellow Indonesians in Singapore who are craving for Indonesian street food, especially martabak manis!
