Tourists can learn and observe the country’s lost art that dates back more than 1,500 years. The building itself is of historic significance, built by the Dutch in 1640 as a church before being devastated by an earthquake, repurposed as a research center, then reopened as a museum.”

Today, Glodok offers a variety of Chinese, Indonesian and fusion dishes. Eat your way through Chinatown, from morning until night – steamed chicken noodles, iced coffee, beef soup, tea, Hainan chicken rice, and fish congee.”

Café
“If you’re looking for an authentic coffee in Jakarta, Es Kopi Tak Kie is a must go to place. Founded in 1927 by Liong Kwie Jong, it is now run by their 3rd generation. The classical taste started by their predecessor remained unchanged. Ayauw, the current owner, also makes a variant blend of coffee into one glass, such as Arabica and Robusta coffee from Lampung with Toraja and Sidikalang coffee. While already widely known, thanks to the social media, Es Kopi Tak Kie got a surge in popularity. Previously you will see many old people here enjoying their coffee as usual but now, young people flock here to taste the original coffee since the colonial days of Indonesia.”
