Introducing Food Fighters, a new and hot hangout spot filled with freshest street stalls under one roof in Melawai area Jakarta.
Food Fighters is more like a mini version or season 2 of Pasar Santa, if I may say so. Because almost all of the tenants there are originated from Pasar Santa.
The place is quite spacious and more comfortable to hang and chill compared Pasar Santa. The location is also easy to reach and spot since it is located inside Melawai Blok M area right below FaveHotel. AnakJajan love how they decorate the place with vintage game arcade mural making it a perfect background for instagram picture at every corner.
There are 10 different tenants at Food Fighters at this moment, let’s see what they have!
It is collaboration between ABCD Coffee and Bear&Co where you can get various coffee by ABCD and beer by Bear&Co.
If you love to go to bazaar, you may already be familiar with this name. Judas Kitchen is the place to go if you are looking for healthier & less guilty menu as they provide various healthy drink such as juice, smoothie and infused water. But specially in Food Fighters, they also serve healthy food just like the one we had Mushroom Burger IDR 30K with juicy portobello mushroom, sunny side up egg and feta cheese served with less-oil air-fried sweet potato fries.
Mie Chino is one of the famous store in Pasar Santa serving humble Indonesian noodle. They are specialized in Mie Karet or elastic al-dente noodle served with savory soy seasoned chicken and mushroom. To go with their noodle, AnakJajan highly recommend you to have additional beef ball and crispy wonton for extra pleasure.
Or if you are not in the mood for noodle, you can try their Bahnmi Lemongrass Beef IDR 30k with crispy yet soft bun and extremely flavorful juicy Lemongrass Beef and crunchy vegie.

Along with other variety of drinks, Food Fighters has a this eye catchy one called Kakigori IDR 35k.

There are several types of waffle with different texture and here in Zucker Waffle, you can find Belgian Liege Waffle. Liege waffle has more dense texture a bit similar with bread with pearl sugar added in the dough that provides a lightly sweet and distinctive flavor.
SATE BUMBU OMA
Here in Sate Bumbu Oma you can find a unique meat skewers or satay. Available in chicken or lamb, the seasoning is very unique with sweet sour base sauce from NTT. Don’t forget to order Bruine Bonen Soup, a comforting savory red bean soup.

This booth is a collaboration between Papricano and Sloppy Bro where you can get both Mexican and American food. Papricano serves various authentic Mexican food for example the Quesadilla IDR 25k AnakJajan had, it was delicious and seasoned nicely and taste even better with their amazing homemade guacamole and tangy tomato salsa. While Sloppy Bro serves American sloppy joe, tomato based ground beef sandwiched in soft hamburger bun.
