“Popular Traditional West Java Food”

Restoran Waroeng Sunda
Ranked #1 610 of 9 002 Restaurants in Jakarta
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 June 2018

Waroeng Sunda is located in West Jakarta. It has a cozy ambience with a decent variety of traditional Indonesian food especially ones of West Java (Sunda). The trademark of Sundanese food is the sambal (hot chili), ground on stone by hand on the spot, and it comes for free. The price is very reasonable in here.

Traditional Sundanese menu normally consists of a fried fish, salty fish, and sour soup. People also like to add tempe (fermented soybean) and tofu (beancurd). Those make a perfect complete Sundanese dinner. Warm or iced tea is normally the usual drink to go with.

The restaurant also serve a traditional drink called cincau, and this is a pretty popular desert to complete the course at the end. Cincau is a drink with greenish grass-jelly mixed with coconut and palm sugar.

Waroeng Sunda at Jl. Panjang has three storeys. The first floor is a dinning hall with long wooden tables, with a preparation table in the middle of it where the cooking staffs grind the chilli (sambal). On the second floor, there are private rooms for group dining equipped with a conference equipment (projector and sound system) that often booked as a karaoke room by the guests. The second floor also has a patio with a low table without chairs, and on occasions there will be a live music entertaining the customers.

The third floor - roof top has another ambience. It is an open air roof-top, with beach-table with umbrella, and some soft bean-bag chairs. It has a music stage for live music, but normally the music is reserved only when there's an event. People may also use Waroeng Sunda's roof-top to watch some sports matches. The third-floor can hosts around 60-80 guests with a minimum charge of IDR 10 million (around USD 800). From the setup you can imagine that Waroeng Sunda is a place suitable for family or group dining or to hold an event.

Beer is not available on its menu. Well... they have their own beer supplier but I am not familiar with the brand. However, it allows people to order certain beer brands if they book and inform the restaurant in advance (like one or two days in advance). Bringing beer from outside is not allowed, and you may only get beer and not the other kind of booze stronger than beer.

Parking at Waroeng Sunda is a bit crowded at dining hours. But the parking staffs are helpful to find a slot for you. While I considered the dishes taste average but borderline enjoyable, but it comes with a reasonable price.

Speaking of Indonesian food, there are many different taste that you can try. Sundanese (West Java) is one of the healthiest and the taste is acceptable to most people.

Special menu in the restaurant is typical traditional Sundanese fish: gouramy / carp, or Gurame in Indonesian. They serve it with several different dishes: fried, grilled, soup, and some more.

Typical Sundanese food consists of fresh vegetables with sambal (chili grinded with tomatoes, prawn paste, and many other ingredients), which you can take in a special counter right in front of the front door, where you can watch the chef preparing them.

Overall, this place is a good place to eat with families or guests, with price around IDR 100k per person.
