Thetraveljunkie.org – It’s no secret that we love jamu. Jamu (old spelling Djamu) are traditional Javanese drinks generally drunk for health. They are predominantly made from natural materials, such as parts of plants such as roots, bark, flowers, seeds, leaves and fruits. When in Jakarta, we were feeling nostalgic for Solo, Central Java so we headed over to one of our favourite South Jakarta cafes, Suwe Ora Jamu. As always, we loved the atmosphere great and its retro Javanese furnishings.
Suwe Ora Jamu has quickly become a must in every jamu lover’s radar. And my bojo had Nasi Goreng Ketjombrang and I chose Nasi Goreng Kebun Raya for dinner. Our friends joined us so we also ordered some fried cassava, bakwan sosis and banana fritters. I couldn’t resist the Wedang Ronde too.
And a trip to Suwe Ora Jamu would’t have been complete without their speciality, jamu. We had the jamu sampler because we couldn’t make up our minds, then my bojo had a Kunyit Asam and I had a Temulawak.
Yummy food, healthy jamu and a wonderful playlist of old Indonesian songs.
