I’ve been meaning to write a post about What to Eat in Taman Palem Lestari and the surrounding areas. We’ve been living here for more than 8 years, so we are often questioned by friends who want to explore the food here. I included Citra Garden 6 and Taman Surya into this listing because it’s very easy to go in and out of these 3 very close housing complexes at Cengkareng, West Jakarta. They offer a lot of food choices from several provinces in Sumatra and Kalimantan. So I’ll try to break it into breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert sections as most of the places have specific opening time that don’t stretch from morning to evening.

For breakfast in Taman Palem Lestari, there are a lot to choose from if you’re a fan of noodle. If you want to try Jambinese noodle, you can go to Ta Mie Ting An, Bakmi Jambi Ahiung, and Ta Mie Atie. There are also several Palembang noodle available like Bakmi Aloi and Bakmi Terang Bulan / Sin Chiaw Lok. From Singkawang you can try Bakmi Djong Jam. You can also found some delicious Bangka noodle like Air Mangkok, A Fu, Bakmi Ko Hon Toboali and Medanese noodle at Bakmi Tien Sim. If you’re not a fan of noodle, you can try North Sumatra dishes at Cita Rasa Medan, or Bagan Siapi Api dishes at Bagan Ciak.

For dinner, the food scenes are a lot more different. There are many street food vendors that offer good food in the area. Some of my favorites are Kwetiaw Acai, Kwetiaw Beras Yiu Huat,pecel lele and ayam bejek cabe ijo at Warung Pecel Lele Indahnya Malam (Read the review HERE), Bubur Tangerang Keluarga Alex, Seafood Acui, sop kambing & nasgorkam at Agung Roxy, nasi sayur Medan Akim at a foodcourt near Citra 6 Gate and Nasi Goreng Bejo 36

For dessert/snack I usually go to Bakso 99 Medan, Bakso Malang Nonik or Bakso Jawir. There are also several new fancy dessert places in Citra Garden 6 like Matchafuku for ice cream dessert and Toska for cold pressed juices selection. But my favorite is the humble martabak Bangka seller at Martabak Bangka Ko Amin

Well, those are my list for now. There are still a lot of eateries I haven’t covered in the area as there are so many here and I haven’t tried them all. So I guess I’ll keep this post updated. If you’re living around these parts and would like to add more places to the list, feel free to leave your comment below.

    You should try Soto Pa’e at Citra 6.
    I’d choose their “oseng daging” over the famous Soto M*mat in Serpong.

    Nice to know, Ian! We’ve gone past it a few times but never thought about going inside. Perhaps we should 😀
