My tour started at 9am, we walked into Chinatown and had a breakfast of 4 dishes, a fried bread, a chicken laska, gado gado and a type of fried chicken- all pretty good, (open sitting area stifling hot). Next headed off for a traditional coffee,
again very good. Walked thru a Chinese temple, before taking a tuk-tuk to Dutch old town. Tour finished after 2.5hrs in beautiful old Batavia Cafe with 2 deserts.
I was toured alongside my school group and all 7 of us found Icha to be amazingly knowledgable and professional. The food locations we went to had a mix of budget authentic stalls to formal European restaurants. All in all, we would like to thank Icha for sharing such an incredible side of Jakarta and we look forward to coming again.
Had a great tour through the back streets of China town in Jakarta trying a variety of food that I would not have ever found on my own. Bimo was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. Had an excellent few hours.
