For those who are confused by the title of this review - Ich liebe dich means I love you in German. And that is exactly what I would like to say to the staff, both service and kitchen, at the Die Stube restaurant.
While studying in Europe, I have grown accustomed to the sports culture/atmosphere that surrounds the European lifestyle. When I return home to Indonesia, very rarely can tourists/locals find a pub that can create the same 'sports ambiance' that I have desperately missed. For example, when Bayern Munich shoots a goal in and I go nuts, I get a cheers from my sit-along neighbor instead of dirty looks for screaming at a restaurant. In an evolving country where sports, soccer specifically, has been growing, Jakarta WAS in need of a sports bar/restaurant. No longer does it need one, Die Stube is your place to go.
I like my Erdinger. Where else in the city can I find my Erdinger? Where else can I find my Erdinger without spending half my wallet, I might add. My definition of a relaxing evening, is to get away from the noisy traffic of Jakarta, tucked by the Kemang Raya entrance, have my Erdinger and enjoy it with Die Stube's pork knuckle.
You tell me you can find a better authentic German meal in Jakarta, nay - Indonesia, I'll respond with Chicken Schnitzel and french fries does not count. Die Stube is THE needle in the haystack.
