One of The Best Food Stalls in South Jakarta: Warung Boma
“I am hungry, let’s eat,” said one of my friends in a group chat. The clock read 10.30 pm, but it still sounded like a good idea to me, maybe because I had an early dinner. Before I replied, he had already sent another text, “If anyone wants to join, I am going to Warung Boma.” That was how I learned about this food place.
Warung Boma is located on Jalan Fatmawati. If you come from Blok M, then it is about 100 meters after ITC Fatmawati on the right side of the street. The place is tight, just like an ordinary food stall in Jakarta, but the tables are clean. Darmanto, the owner of Warung Boma, got the name from abbreviating of Bocah Madiun (Madiun kid). He and his wife are natives of Madiun in East Java and they also hire people from Madiun at the warung.
Darmanto opened it four years ago, and it has won a considerable number of loyal customers. I believe it all happened because they succeeded in two of the most important things in the food business: good food and good service. Darmanto always give good service to his customers. Sometimes he tells stories or makes jokes with his wife and also with the customers.
There are also many options for good side dishes which you can have for even greater satisfaction. Depending on what you eat, you might spend between Rp 15,000-30,000. The warung is ready to serve its customers every day from 7 pm until 3 am. This humble food stall is undeniably a good treat for tired employees and those heading for their graveyard shift.
