Go on a culinary and historical discovery of Jakarta's unique flavors by joining this 2.5-hour food tour that takes you on an exploration of the Cikini area. Built as a commercial center during the colonial era, the foreign influence manifests itself in the architectural style of the old Dutch buildings. You'll first meet up with your tour group, then immediately head off towards the first stop of the tour, a local market that's 55 years old! Learn about the fascinating history of Cikini from your English-speaking tour guide as you walk through the busy market. Try a variety of popular local cuisine such as Nasi Gudeg, with its distinct bold flavors, Soto Betawi, a beef soup with a complex combination of signature Indonesian spices, and Pempek Palembang from a restaurant renowned for serving the best pempek in the capital city! You'll also get to sample some delicious Indonesian coffee from a traditional coffee shop, before the tour concludes and you're free to explore the surrounding area as you wish.
