Waku Waku is one of the newest and coolest ‘warung’ for hangout in Jakarta. Located strategically in central of Jakarta, in Senayan area, Waku Waku serves various typical ‘warung’ style dishes such as noodle, rice, toast, dimsum, chicken wings and drinks with modern twist and affordable price.
Waku Waku stands for ‘Warung Kumpul, Warung Ku’ that means my hangout & eating place, it is located at the second floor of the gas station near Senayan City, right beside BINUS JWC University. The interior of Waku Waku is pretty simple and cozy with quirky mural drawing on the walls, just like this small table with single chair facing Mr. Obama, it’s the perfect chair to eat for our lonely single friends that need a companion (read: ‘jomblo’) isn’t it? 😉
