The Legendary Ice Cream in Jakarta Mar 12, 2012
Ragusa Italian Ice Cream is a famous ice cream in Jakarta. This restaurant not luxury looks like an ordinary food stall. Don't thinking you will see the display of ice creams on restaurant display. This place is very famous till now, because in this place you can enjoy homemade ice cream without preservatives by traditional atmosphere of the past. I had the sweet memory about this restaurant. Many peoples especially the adults come here just to reminisce the old days. I visited this place when i was child with my family. At that time not many restaurants in Jakarta selling the ice cream. I came to this restaurant again after 30 years with my sister lasts week. Nothing changed all look still same.
Ragusa Italian Ice Cream located at Jl. Veteran I no. 10 in Jakarta. The location closes with Monumen Indonesia and Istiqlal Mosque. The founders of Ragusa Ice Cream Restaurant were Italian stayed in Jakarta in the 1932 by Luigie Ragusa dan Vincenzo Ragusa. The building was a Dutch-style buildings on the past. A sense of the colonial when you first walk into Ragusa Ice Cream Restaurant . The chairs made of cane with an old-fashioned and simple round table as a complement. All around the walls,i saw the black and white photographs that illustrate how the history Ragusa Ice Cream, the founder picture, ice cream pictures and a portrait of the corners of the ancient city. The place not big only can accomodate around 100 peoples. The restaurant was not using the airconditioner , just use the fan. They wanted to retain the feel of the past for visitors, to reminisce. The street singer will entertains us with old song also.
Ragusa Ice Cream Restaurant is often packed and many have to wait at a table as they are not equipped with enough room to accommodate the continuous flow of customers especially on weekend. However, seated customers do not stay long and usually leave after they are done. They only serving ice-cream, Ragusa does not offer food or snacks and has maintained this tradition for years to the delight of the visitor.
Ragusa Ice Cream Restaurant provides a variety of ice cream flavors, like vanilla, mocca, chocolate, starwberry, durian, rum raisin, naugat coupe, tutti frutti, and spaghetti ice cream. We ordered Spaghetti Ice Cream, Chocolate Ice Cream and Tutti Fruiti Ice Cream. Don't be curious with Spaghetti ice cream ..this is ice cream vanilla taste, but the shape look likes long spaghetti with liquid chocolate topping, peanut and candied fruit. This product the favorite in this restaurant. Tutti Frutti Ice Cream is a triangle shape layer ice cream with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, in the middle ice cream sprinkled with fruit. The ice creams look simple, but you get the good taste and delicious. The ice cream presented in the antique and unique bowl.
On front restaurant , we can order gado-gado and asinan (vegetables with peanut sauce ) , and chicken satay, otak-otak ( mixing fish paste) , rujak juhi (cuttlefish rujak) all delicious here.
Please visit this restaurant if you want to enjoy the atmosphere of antiquity and old restaurants in Jakarta. This place is worth to visitor as this place has a lot of history, and you will also get best homemade ice cream. Overall, “great taste, and affordable price”
