Are you a vegetarian? A vegan? Fear not! There are dishes that are friendly to vegetarians and vegans. Fried tofu with rice, gado-gado (Indonesian salad), tempe (soy beans), sayur (vegetable soup), and ketoprak (Indonesian salad with rice) are easy to be found anywhere in the city. For non-vegetarians, Jakarta has a lot to offer. From traditional cuisine, Italian, Japanese, to evil chain food like know what (McDick, Murder King, etc). Do try the traditional foods: Soto (soup), Nasi goreng (Indonesian style fried rice), or rendang (beef). Ah yes, the price, this is the best part. Food in general is quite affordable over here, normal range is $1 – $3 (American Dollar). For cheaper prices, can eat in “Warteg”.
There are “ciu” and “anggur merah intisari” (local wines). For local beers there are Anker, Bintang and Bali Hai. Bali Hai is not recommeded to drink, unless the person are that kind of people who drinks Budweiser.
If traveller's band are having shows here, most likely there will be an offer; a place to stay by people who arrange a show; otherwise, there are lots of options. Jalan Jaksa (Jaksa street, Sarinah area, central jakarta) has lots of affordable hostels for backpackers and most of them have websites. Price range are from $10 – $100 per nights. Also find home-stay via online. If insisting on staying at the Hotel, try Amaris, they offer $30-$50 per night.
For those who’ve never been to a third world country, be prepared, traffics are everywhere and it’s really bad. also, air pollution and hot-humid weather is something that need to keep in mind. Aside from that, it’s not that difficult to get around the city.There's inner city transit bus called Transjakarta, minibus, bus, bajaj (a three wheel vehicle), ojek (motorcycle taxi), and taxi. When already arrived at the airport, go find the security guard or airport staff to find the taxi places; otherwise will get ripped off with by illegal taxi driver (there are tons of them waiting in front of the airport)
