When I was in Jakarta, along with eating all sorts of regional Indonesian food from around the country, I really wanted to eat a full spread of Betawi dishes, which are the people originally from the Jakarta area.

After doing some research I came across Warung Mak Dower, and decided to take the trip from across Jakarta to eat there. It was well worth visiting, and the food was incredible.

Here are the dishes I ordered:

Sayur asem (vegetable tamarind soup)
Ikan cue goreng bawang (fried fish with shallots)
Cumi asin lenong (salted squid dish)
Jengkol nampol (dogfruit chili)
Pete goreng (fried stink beans)
Pete bawang (stink beans and fried shallots)

Everything was pretty good, but nothing compared to the dishes that included stink beans and crispy shallots, and the jengkol nampol, a dish of cooked dogfruit in lots of chili and garlic. It was simply an overload of flavor.

Warung Mak Dower is a great friendly family run Betawi restaurant that’s well worth checking out when you’re in Jakarta.
