DAPURAYA AT PASARAYA - BLOK M, JAKARTA04.16.00
Getting to Pasaraya was barely a chore, while I drove here, if you're a tourist or someone who had no clue where Pasaraya is, thanks to the newly furnished TransJakarta, you can just take the Corridor 1 and depart on the last station: Blok M. Then you take the exit and it was an easy 3 minute walking distance to the shopping center. DapuRaya was located at the LG floor of the building, and oh recently Pasaraya, which was known as Pasaraya Grande, changed its name to Pasaraya The Pride of Indonesia.
There are two DapuRaya(s) in Pasaraya Blok M, they expanded and launched DapuRaya 2 not too long ago to add more potential tenants and offer the customer wider food selections. There are approximately 150 tenants available at the moment selling snacks, light bites, main courses, desserts to beverages, and yet again, majority Indonesia's best.
Like most posh food courts at the moment, they adapt the cashless transaction here and instead using top-up card as the payment method. You can always refund the balance if you have any left.
That vintage cracker tin tho...
Sop Ikan Cempaka
They also have several foreign (still around Asia) tenant such as Sushi Point which offer customers selections of assorted housemade sushi.
Chicken noodle stall
Fried chicken! One of Indonesia's best humble food for me!
We call the right one "rantang" and it's usually functioned sort of like a "lunch tiers".
Farmer's hat on the left
Gado-gado! Another very delicious Indonesian food that you MUST TRY when you're travelling here!
Sop Iga (Beef Rib Soup)
...and if you fancy something a lil' spicy, there's always homemade chili to add.
The fragrant coconut milk rice set comes with fried tofu, fried soyabean cake, fried chicken, cucumber side and chili! The rice was flavorful, no probs with the fried stuff and the chili was perfectly spicy to match with the other food.
Nasi Uduk Mbok Rene also sells Nasi Langgi, Nasi Tim, Nasi Rames and Lontong Cap Gomeh.
Left: Es Pisang Ijo from Pisang Ijo Adulam, Right: Es Doger Granita
Refreshing treats as sweet closure to the lunch. Both were equally decent.
Two more desserts which I unfortunately did not aware where they're originated from
Short to say, Dapuraya was this wonderland of good Indonesian food that you can always browse and point your fingers at to whatever you fancy. Price wise, affordable, not to mention it's also dedicated for office hour workers who might fancy good food without having to spend much, venue was clean, service was good, basically not much to complain about and much to recommend you.
DapuRaya also has another branch in Manggarai, if that's closer with you.
