With all the commotion of Burger King re-opening in Jakarta, I'd like to ask you : Have you ever tried Jakarta's own local grilled-burger? Have you ever even heard of any?
If you answered no, please try "Blenger Burger", located in the Blok M area (which so happens to be conveniently near my house :) ). This burger is quite famous. Considering you can already buy one for around Rp. 10.000,-, it is very value for money. The size is quite big with lettuce, kyuri & onion to add more flavour + .... melted cheese (my favorite...yummyyy...). Besides burger, there is also a choice of hotdogs & juice to quench your thirst.
The only downside is that there are only a few tables to sit down, making this burger best enjoyed if taken home.
Word of Caution :
Blenger Burger opens a bit late : from 12.00 (noon), except Fridays when it opens after the Friday Moslem prayer (13.30).
