I had the opportunity to try Indonesian food in Dubai when Jana and I visited Betawi Restaurant in Karama. We were there for a meet-up with some Pinoy bloggers in the city. It was nice that we didn’t have to go far since the café is just located near my place.
Betawi Restaurant in Karama
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dining at Betawi Café with Pinoy Bloggers in Dubai
Normally, we go out and eat in fast food restaurants and other food places in the malls. We seldom go out to look for unique finds that are tucked in different corners of the city. Luckily, we were going to meet bloggers who have plenty of experiences in Dubai so they know some great restaurants that are easy on the pocket.
We met up with Kenneth at Burjuman station and walked towards the back of Park Regis Hotel. We found the restaurant and I was happy that it wasn’t full yet. This place can get busy especially during peak hours. With the limited seating, loyal patrons sometimes have to wait.
Food in Betawi Cafe
Don’t expect that this is a posh place as you can see from the photos that this is just a small eatery. Despite this, the restaurant has been shortlisted by Timeout Dubai Restaurant Awards in the best budget category. Here’s the food we ordered.
This reminded me of food trips when we spent a week in Bali, Indonesia during my backpacking trip. This reminds me that I should also blog about my food experiences there.
Prices of main meals in this Indonesian restaurant in Dubai would start from 25 AED. This is truly a great find because I didn’t have to pay much to eat great food.
Chicken Satay, Siomay, Es Campur and Es Teler, Nasi Padang
Over good food, I was able to discuss common topics of interest with fellow bloggers in Dubai. I hope to meet with more people soon!
Pinoy Bloggers in Dubai, meet-up 🙂
