A new Burger King -- a.k.a. Hungry Jacks for australians -- has just opened in Jl. Thamrin, opposite sarinah, just next to starbucks! within spitting distance from the centre of the universe (a.k.a. jalan jaksa)!

Which place did it overtake? The Marzano pizza, the cafe ewww ka ka, or what??

BTW, I had my first Indon BK burger (at Senayan City) and our buns were all stale! They'd better fix that problem real quick!

I dropped in too just before it closed on Sat night. Must be the only Hungry Jack's (BK) in the world where there are more chicks dining in high heels and toting designer handbags than wearing tracksuits and "I'm with dickhead" T shirts.

Truly a bizarre experience.

Yes it is insane to pay over US$4 for a burger and if I wasn't homesick I wouldn't bother, but on the bright side they add extra tomato and lettuce for free, just ask.

(it's where Marzano pizza used to be, beside $tarbucks)

i went to burger king for lunch yesterday.

food was good; actual salad veges in the burger, though the meat, while tasty, was a little on the thin side.

chips were excellent. clearly they are using very new oil. rancid aftertaste that we have become accustomed to in french fries in indonesia was completely absent!

service was good and reasonably fast, even during the busy lunch hour.

all-in-all, things can only go downhill from here! the only question is, the rate of decline, as reductionism takes its inevitable hold ...

You have given in and taken that first bite of the capitalist west I see.... so much for the healthy Kuku we have heard so much about!

"healthy kuku"?? who's been spreading such rumours about me?

yes, i am amazingly fit and healthy for my 30-odd years, but i'm not exactly a fanatic. by far the most significant thing that i do for my health -- in contrast to most other bules in indonesia -- is not smoke!

apart from that, i'm a very light drinker, and only ever fermented beverages; never spirits.

and, for the most part, i maintain a high-protein, low-fat diet.

and i work out in the gym and swim 3-4 times a week ... not to mention bedroom workouts.

now, does all that sound fanatical? or is it just a well-balanced lifestyle which you all out there should be emulating?? wink
