"What impresses most in the JGFG (pardon the Orba-esque acronym) is its all-round quality: the clean, elegant design by LeBoYe; the thoughtful separation of categories; the concise, catchy writing; and most of all the informative, critical, knowledgeable reviews ... the prose is consistently playful, insightful, polished and never clichéd."

- Daniel Ziv, Djakarta!, City Life Magazine

"This is a delicious read and a must-have for long-time residents of the city... Jakarta foodies... have seen nothing like it before."
