Has anyone ever been to or know about some specialty grocery stores (catering to upper-class Chinese-Indonesians and Foreign Residents such as Ranch Market and Kemchicks with high-grade imported stuff) in places outside of Jakarta, such as Bandung, Jogja, Surabaya, Bali, Medan or Makassar????

If so, let me know the name and website, just a little survey I'm doing.

Cheers..

"Papaya" in Surabaya caters to foreigners especially Japanese, there are two outlets that i know of, I can't imagine that they have a website though.

Hey KUKU,
maybe I should've started this in one of the biz forums, any chance you can move the entire thread there??

Vida is a big place, pretty run of the mill except for the extensive grog selection.

There is a supermarket in Setia Budi, Bandung, that caters to bules, rich chinese. Dont honestly know the name of it, but has heaps of imported goods....you can buy alcohol there during Ramadan as well, something i tend to find a little hard if I want a bottle of vodka.

Hey this seems to be the right place to ask,

where to get cornmeal? the yellowish cornflour not the starch.

Papaya?

I live near surabaya.
