Nasi Ulam Misjaya

Located in Kota a.k.a Jakarta's China Town, Nasi Ulam Misjaya is actually a misfit. Surrounded by lots of non halal food and all those Chinese food didn't stop it from being one of the most recognized Nasi Ulam in Jakarta. It made the list of 100 best Betawi food in Jakarta (and the only nasi ulam i guess) Thanks to the chinese influence (the cook is actually chinese i guess), the taste of the nasi ulam is a little bit different than the others i've tasted before. It's definitely not as sweet as the others but it has its own characteristic. It has more chopped nuts and bigger cucumber pieces. The 'bihun' is not the same (gendut gendut apa ya english nya?) and the topping is definitely tastier. The tofu is delicious and so does the 'dendeng'. It's rather pricey for a nasi ulam (mine was Rp. 11.000) but that doesn't stop all the Misjaya fanatics.

Location: Kota, in front of Toa Se Bio and Ricci School
Rating 7/10
