Jakarta: Bebek Ginyo

Tebet in South Jakarta is home to a number of joints serving top-notch food that could give you an alternative to your tedious day-to-day meals. One eatery that I would recommend here is Nasi Bebek Ginyo, which sets forth a selection of duck dishes including Bebek Goreng (fried duck), Bebek Bakar (grilled duck), and Bebek Balado (spicy fried duck).

Housed in a homely abode on Jalan Tebet Utara Dalam ever since the business was brought into being in 2007, Nasi Bebek Ginyo is a self-service restaurant that gives customers the freedom to choose whatever their palate may desire over at the counter. There are various chicken dishes and other selections available as well. One thing that you need to keep in mind prior to coming here is the limited parking space provided, so one must plan well beforehand.

Its signature grilled duck is a must-try here, although I do find myself having a go at its savoury fried chicken once in a while. With a slightly sweet aftertaste and grilled to perfection, you won’t be detecting any pungent smell coming from the well-seasoned duck. Another dish that you should not miss is its Sayur Urap, which consists of long beans, bean sprouts, carrot slices, cowpeas, and grated coconut. Offering a flawless sweet-and-spicy sensation with every bite, your experience will be further enhanced after you throw in a dollop or two of the shop’s hot sambal.
