Solo lunch. Big appetite.
After that organic food 'experience', my junk food craving came to haunt me again. So I decided to make love, not war - at Hard Rock Cafe Jakarta in e'X and get meself some ol' burger and coke.
-> The most generous ration of coke in town. Felt like bottomless.
A little erratum: It should be beef bacon since Indonesian HRC serve halal food only.
What can I say? This burger is too huge, even for someone with big appetite. The beef is good, succulent, and should be ordered medium-well for that extra moisture. To be honest, 10 ounces (that's close to 300 grams for you metric folks) is a tad too much for me. I ended up leaving one of the patties uneaten.
Anyhoot, the only downside of dining alone in Jakarta's HRC is that you have to deal with those super-friendly, super-amiable, corny wisecracking waiter dudes - alone. Indonesians are weird in the sense that someone having lunch alone is a rarity, especially on weekends. In other countries, I eat lunch all by myself all the time. But in Indonesia, when you do that, people will ask "where's your date? where's your friend? are you all alone?"
Just bring the food and shut up, will ya.
