Jalan Sabang and its Captivating Delights


The pandemonium from the traffic that cuts through Jalan Sabang in Central Jakarta becomes another frenetic decoration to this bustling area during the evening. Once the sun waves goodbye, the pavements become home to rows of tented warung. Renowned as a hub for roadside treats in Jakarta, most of the hawkers here operate until the wee hours – the neighbourhood’s most attractive attribute. The following are five must-visit warung on Jalan Sabang.

Nasi Goreng dan Bubur Ayam Bang Roby

Its various fried rice and chicken porridge choices are exactly what your palate and tummy need during the evening.

Soto Ceker Pak Gendut

As the night grows darker, the crowd at this modest tented warung tends to swell in numbers. One could say that the delectable food at Soto Ceker Pak Gendut has its own unique appeal. You could do no wrong with a bowl of its Soto Ceker (chicken feet soup) or Soto Ranjau (chicken bone soup).

Sate Sabang Pak Heri

Never underestimate Sate Sabang Pak Heri and its pushcart. This is the source from which the many “Heri” copycats along Jalan Sabang originated from – all in the hope of profiting from its much-heralded moniker. Take one bite and we guarantee that you will be in agreement with us that the Sate Kulit Ayam (chicken skin satay) here is ridiculously tasty.
