A South Jakarta Noodle House with Komodo Kitchen
Paying homage to the noodle houses throughout Indonesia, Gina Onyx of Komodo Kitchen focuses this frame experience on her cult-favorite noodle house in Melawai, South Jakarta, part of the cosmopolitan city where she grew up, which she explains now, as a rather voguish neighborhood. Gina conveys an image of this famed 1970’s Jakarta noodle house, which serves more than 30,000 customers a day, as “a true Mum and Pop noodle house, where students gather for after school snacks and families share weekend meals.” Taking over the frame space, tweaking the details, menu, music, and decor, Gina is bringing us precisely this; a South Jakarta Style Noodle House. Transporting the authentic flavors ubiquitous in Indonesian cities, found in restaurants, street-side food stalls, traveling carts and bicycle vendors to our Sunday dinner tables, at frame.
