chinesse food fiesta in Gloria Alley May 20, 2008
If you wants to eat, there are lots of restaurants, cafe or hawkers place that you can visit. However there's only one Gloria Alley in Jakarta. Situated in Glodok Area (West jakarta) this place is heaven to you food lovers. To get there, you can use the busway (Jakarta Bus system) and off in Glodok Station. From there you can walk to Glodok area for 10 minutes. The place is small alley with lots of food vendors surrounding it, more like a dry market though. When you reach there then the party begins. This place has been there for a long time, many people says in old days chinesse bosses and mafias used to hang out and have coffee in this place, now the place is famous between locals.

First stop is Ketupat Sayur Gloria. "ketupat" is food made from rice and shaped like a cake(IDR 30,000). Usually it is eaten with hot indonesia curry sauce. It's not really curry actually, it's more like a coconut milk soup boiled with spices It's usually accompanied by hard boiled egg marinated with soya sauce and 1/4 chicken. The taste is spicy, hot and delicious. While you're there don't forget to order Liang Teh (IDR 5,000), a chinesse mix tea which has this sweet but bitter taste! real good. After you are finished you walk about 5 metres and will find a food stall that sell Rujak Juhi, or a mix salad with dried squid (IDR 10,000). Dont be put off by the name..this dish is really delicious. It is a mix of fresh salad, cucumber, boiled potato, yellow noddle, peanut sauce (made from crushed peanuts with water) and a sprinkle of dried squid. mmmmm. In the back of this food stall you will see Kopi Es Takie (IDR 7,000-10,000). "Kopi"is indonesian for Coffee. In this place you will find a fine taste of indonesian coffee, you can have it hot or cold with ice, have a cup of this coffee and hang out while watching vendors and buyers walking around. If you're full then its time to buy something to snack later on, try dry fruits and baked peanuts stalls in the corner(IDR 5,000-IDR 50,000/gram). You will find variety of dry fruits (mango, plum etc) and baked peanuts (pistachio, cashew, corn etc). Try bargaining the price for cheaper price! or if that's not working ask them to give add on the scale.
