‘Passer Koeningan’ gives foodies a touch of old
Jl. Rasuna Said in South Jakarta,
an unusual scene catches the eyes of visitors,
especially during lunchtime.
The mall’s food court, Passer Koeningan,
has been redone with the theme “Jakarta Tempo Doloe”,
or Old-Time Jakarta, giving diners a touch — and taste — of old Batavia, as the capital was once known.
The wooden chairs have been painted dark brown, blue or green. Big mirrors have been installed under the sinks in the style once favored by the city’s European colonizers.
