Marenno

Marenno is taken from 3 names Malia, Irene and Novi. Three of us love to travel and eat. Indonesia have various traditional and local foods and light bites. Each of us has a hobby to try local and traditional foods from other regions. Sometimes, we do try to cook the food we like. Most Indonesian foods are very complicated to cook, but we love to share to cook them.

The Indonesian Taste and Hospitality

We are offering a unique culinary tour to our guests who would like to taste traditional or local cuisines. Not only will our guests taste the main dishes but also the sides dishes and condiments. 

Our guests will discover Indonesian cuisine has distinctive tastes – sweet, spicy, sour, salty, and bitter. It depends on the origins where they come from. Each food has its unique taste. 

What is the unique way that we offer in our tour? We’ll invite our guests to our house and let them involve and see the process of cooking traditional foods, then eat at the place. For information, the house that we are going to use for cooking demo is located in Bogor. The right food comes from the home. We want our guests to feel our hospitality.

There are many similar tours like us to bring guests from other countries to taste Indonesian’ traditional or local cuisines. But, having an experience to cook as well as to feel the local’s hospitality might never be offered yet. And now, we’ll offer that kind of tour experience. Plus, if we do have more time to spend, we will ask our guests to travel around the city

Home Cooking of Soto Betawi.

First offering is Soto Betawi

Soto Betawi is one of Betawi’s traditional main courses and a favorite main dish too in Jakarta. The ingredients contain of beef offals, coconut milk or goat milk or white milk, diced tomato, small diced potatoes (sometimes sliced potatoes), emping (kind of chips made from cassava), and spring onions (cut).  Some Soto Betawi vendors use chicken meat or beef meat (without the offals).  

Brief History (source: id.wikipedia.org)

The term of Soto Betawi was known in 1977-1978. The person who introduced it was Lie Boen Po, a Chinese-Indonesian vendor who often opened his stall at Lokasari Amusement Park (Prinsen Park).

Soto Betawi” started to become very well-known after Lie Boen Po’s stall closed in around 1991.

Where to eat?

There are many homely restaurants in Jakarta managed by native Betawi people serving Soto Betawi

What we offer?

As said previously, we'll invite you to come to our house to have cooking experience of Soto Betawi. After that, we'll have lunch or dinner at our place. 


Betawi's Side Dish Kerak Telor

Kerak Telor is one of Betawi’s famous traditional side dish made of egg, sticky rice with the toppings of desiccated coconut, sliced fried onions, and dried shrimps. The topping should be fried until brown.

Past and Present of Kerak Telor

In the past time, precisely in the Dutch colonial, Kerak Telor was a privileged food served only to high-rank Dutch officials or to rich Betawi people (resource: en.wikipedia.org).

In modern day, Kerak Telor becomes more and more popular not only with Betawi people, but also with all Jakarta’s people. Some tourists who visited Fatahillah Museum even wanted to give a try to eat it.

Moreover, the vendors of Kerak Telor are no longer travelling around housing complex as they did in 80’s (the year I knew this food for the first time) to sell it yet most of them sell it at certain areas like at Situ Babakan, one of locals’ leisure spots or around Fatahillah Museum area – one of tourists’ destinations.
