The Jakarta Good Food Guide Update 2009-2010 is the supplement to the Jakarta Good Food Guide 2008-2009, which became integrated into the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism’s Visit Indonesia 2008 campaign.

As with the previous editions, restaurants in this volume are divided into international and local cuisines, in alphaberical order. Indonesian cuisine is further broken down into regional specialties and casual eateries, warungs and street vendors (kaki limas). Lumped under “Special Categories” are sections on bakmi/kwetiau(noodle) joints, vegetarian restaurants, seafood restaurants, pizza parlours, local coffee joints and steakhouses.

Praise for

The Jakarta Good Food Guide 2009-2010

"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."

- The Jakarta Post

"Laksmi's diligence in putting together this book deserves much praise ... the design of the book is also commendable."

- Gatra

"Laksmi, the Governor of Good Eating in Jakarta."
