On the same floor as Social House is this little place called Ismaya Catering Co. Same owners as Social House and, in true Ismaya fashion, yummy food and good ambiance. It’s a great casual place to grab some imported beers. At some point they even had buy one take one on my favorite beer, Erdinger Weissbier (wheat beer)! What a steal (in Jakarta) for 2 bottles for Rp 90,000 or 9 USD. (In the philippines you can get said beer for 2 USD in the supermarket). Now it’s back to Rp 90,000 a bottle. =( Alas all good things must come to an end!
They have a good selection of beers though that you can’t usually find in other bars. The variety of beers here is understandably limited.
We love the simple food here too! It’s a cheaper Social House! Same quality but the ambiance is not as full-on posh. We go here when we want good food at more reasonable prices.
What I would come back for (aside from the beers) are the pork sausages and the mushroom soup! I love bread bowls! Don’t you?
The decor, though simple is quirky and funny as always. TD loves this poster that says
“HMMMMMMMM This coffee is so good! Drink coffee! Do stupid things faster with more energy!”
I just had to laugh at that one! LOL!
