March 2, 2006 | INDONESIAN CUISINE, JAKARTA, South Jakarta

I had dinner with some of my colleagues galls last Sunday night at Payon Restaurant. I’ve never been to Payon before. I like the interior, decorated like Indonesian traditional house, with wooden table & desk, open air, very romantic atmosphere *banyak nyamuk juga*. They served Indonesian traditional cuisine : actually I think its Javanese Cuisine, quite pricey but I think its worthed. They got several store at the right side of the restaurant, the one that most impressed me was the one decorated in warung style selling some snack / food from my childhood that already hard to find nowadays.

    Watched the re-run of Jalan Jalan Chari Makan by Suria, I fell in love with the restaurant set up and furniture. Foods look and sound fantastic. May I know where to get those dining chair – it’s beautiful.
    A must place to visit when in Jakarta.

    You can easily find the dining set at antique furniture store in Indonesia, I think they make this kind of furniture in Jepara (central Java).
