Five must-visit 'warungs' on Jl. Sabang

Bubur Ayam Bang Roby (Good Indonesian Food/File)

The pandemonium from the traffic that cuts through Jl. Sabang in Central Jakarta is another frenetic decoration to this bustling area during the evening. Once the sun waves goodbye, the pavements become home to rows of tented warungs. Renowned as a hub for roadside treats in Jakarta, most of the hawkers here operate until the wee hours – the neighborhood’s most attractive attribute.

The following are five must-visit warungs on Jl. Sabang.

Nasi Goreng and Bubur Ayam Bang Roby

Located right in the heart of Jl. Sabang, Nasi Goreng and Bubur Ayam Bang Roby should be on your list of places to visit in this area. Its various fried rice and chicken porridge choices are exactly what your tummy needs during the evening. We recommend its bubur ayam telor kornet (chicken porridge with egg and corned beef).

Nasi Goreng Kebon Sirih

Its name and signature nasi goreng kambing (mutton fried rice) is delicious. Nasi Goreng Kebon Sirih is situated a few footsteps away from the buzzing epicentre of Jl. Sabang.

Sate Lamongan Jaya Agung

Not many restaurants can match the tenderness of Sate Lamongan Jaya Agung’s sate ayam (chicken satay). Its strategic location – in between Jl. Sabang and Jl. Wahid Hasyim – makes it an even better proposition. Don’t miss out on its tasty sup kambing (mutton soup).

Soto Ceker Pak Gendut

As the night grows darker, the crowd at this modest tented warung tends to swell in numbers. The delectable food at Soto Ceker Pak Gendut has its own unique appeal. Try the soto ceker (chicken feet soup) or soto ranjau (chicken bone soup).

Jl. H. Agus Salim (Sabang), Central Jakarta

Open daily from 6 p.m. - 3 a.m.

Sate Sabang Pak Heri

Never underestimate Sate Sabang Pak Heri and his pushcart. This is the source from which many “Heri” copycats along Jl. Sabang originated. All hope to profit from its much-heralded moniker. Take one bite and we guarantee that you will be in agreement with us that the sate kulit ayam (chicken skin satay) here is ridiculously tasty. (kes)
