8 Must-Try Soupy Treats in Jakarta


Jakarta is a melting pot of culture; with people from all over the country – and the world – having made their way here to make a living. This, in turn, has also resulted in the capital city of Indonesia being home to a very diverse range of eateries specialising in various local delicacies from across the archipelago.
