Hello guys – I have to post this post real quick with all the hype. I promise that I’ll be posting the lunch at Soleil Bali soon. This is about my recent trip to Kampung Tempo Dulu. And, from this post onwards, all of Jakarta related food post will be automatically posted at jktgo.com/blog also 🙂 – have fun! Jakarta Fashion & Food festival has been happening for a long time – and I haven’t been to any of their festival. But, guess its my time to see it this year. Femina Magazine just gave me IDR 300,000 voucher to splurge on myself for this festival. After a while on who-am-I-going-to-take-soul-searching, turns out that the entire (well, almost) food blogger of the city is going there too! We stop by at 15:00 on sunny Tuesday (which is yesterday- the holiday). I was a lil worried that the traffic will be chaotic. Thankfully, it wasn’t! However, be sure to wear extra thin shirt, and short pants – you don’t want to do the same mistake like I did- a polo shirt, jeans and shoes.
It was a very exciting event with lots of street foods from across the nation – and most of them are priced at an affordable price (starting from as low as IDR 5,000 – to 45,000). You can find martabak, serabi, shaved ice – sate (lots of them), es durian, nasi goreng and many more. Inside, you can also see the wine & cheese festival – there’s a lot of wine. As a wine lover, I must say it’s worth a shot to go here, especially if you’re looking for wines from third world countries (don’t worry, you can also see the wines from France, and Italy). So the question is, is it worth it? I would say, despite the heat, and crowd, this is one of the events you should go to. Besides, what could go wrong when you reminisce with your childhood feast? This event last till June 1st at La Piazza. Have fun!
