We met some Singaporean college students at our hostel in Jakarta and they recommended this place along with some dishes to try. We went on New Year's Day around 1 PM. Easy busy from our hostel in Chinatown (Google Maps works very well, just like the locals said it would). We also took the #7 bus from there right to the Botanical Gardens, too. Nice way to really see the city and your Tourist Pass works.
The guys gave us dishes to try, but our philosophy was just to stand in line at all the places that had a big queue. We had wonton noodles, two different spring rolls and another fried noodle and beef dish whose name is eluding me. All were EXCELLENT in price (3-5 SGD each) and quality.
Definitely worth the visit!
