Nadya Syarifa Mirandhany, also famously known as Sailormoney on social media, is a host, copywriter, singer, and sometimes a model. With her bubbly personality, she loves to talk about everything, including beauty, food, travel, and many more.


Hi! Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your day-to-day activities?

Hi! I’m Sailormoney; I work as a host, copywriter, and singer. I’ve been staying in Bali for the past month, and I like to go to the beach on Sundays and work at different cafes around the Kerobokan area.

How would you describe your food preference?

I love meeting different creative people all around. I’m a full-time extrovert, so absorbing people’s positive energy fuels me up and makes me even more excited about any project I do. And I love being an overall creative.

What is your most recent dining destination that left a good impression?

My preference is a lot of texture and spicy. When I was little, I couldn’t eat anything without ketchup; now, it’s sambal or chili sauce. I also prefer different types of food depending on the weather and mood.

What is the most unforgettable food experience you have ever had?

I think lately was my discovery of Nasi Ayam Lawar in Canggu. I randomly ordered it via Gofood because I was hungry after spending time at the beach with my friends. It turned out to be the! I have been ordering it three times so far now, hahaha.

What are your favorite local dishes, and where do you go to eat them?

In the modern age of gojek, I just gofood the best-rated food places around my area. Local dishes I’ve been a fan of lately are Nasi Campur Bali, Ayam Geprek, Bakmie, and Se’i Sapi!

Do you have any go-to venues for hanging out with friends or maybe for special occasions with family?

I think I have acquired taste because my family isn’t scared of trying new cuisines and recipes. So for special occasions with family, we usually go for either Korean bbq, Vietnamese pho, or full-on Chinese breakfast food. With friends, it’s quite similar as well. Some places we like are Chunggiwa, Yamalu, and Dragon Flames. They are legends.

What is your most recent dining destination that left a good impression?

It’s still the Nasi Ayam Lawar! It only costs IDR22k and the warm rice makes the whole dish much better. And you can’t forget the extra spoon of sambal!

Where do you usually get your food recommendations?

Usually from friends and family for sure. Lately, my cousin, Gema, has been introducing me to many new delicacies around Bali because she’s a foodie that looks out for what’s out there at an affordable price.

What kind of dining places could catch your attention? 

Fancy dining places usually make me feel out of place, so I prefer warungs, small Ruko cafes, and kaki lima (food stall) sellers at the night market. And usually, these places have the absolute best food.

When you go out for coffee or drinks, what do you look for, and where do you go? Any familiar places/orders?

I tend to have coffee or chill drinks while I’m working. So like Yamalu, the place has to have an indoor and outdoor area, considerably good wifi, and an accessible power outlet. My regular coffee order is always a hot cappuccino in the chilly early mornings or an iced latte during the afternoon. And I always have my water bottle of chilled water at the ready.

Do you have any favorite takeouts for busy days?

Rice bowls have been very popular over the last couple of years and my go-to for busy days are Eeatlah’s Sambal Chicken Rice and Cubeef’s Cubeef Truffle Rice.

Are there any restaurants that you would like to try but have not yet?

I have yet to try some Korean Sashimi somewhere in Jakarta. I forgot what it’s called, but I would loooove a different take on raw fish dishes.

If you have visitors from abroad/out of Jakarta, where do you take them to give a genuine taste of Indonesia?

I’ll definitely take them to try Bakso Toktok, Mie Ayam gerobak (chicken noodles), and Nasi Padang. I just think nothing is more Jakarta than these street foods.

Is there any food you can eat every day without getting bored?

Chicken! Any type of chicken whether it’s Ayam Ungkep (Braised Chicken / Javenese Spiced Fried Chicken), Ayam Goreng, Ayam bakar (Grilled Chicken), Ayam Goreng Tepung (Fried Chicken), Ayam Mentega (Indonesia Fried Chicken with Butter Sauce), Ayam Balado (Chicken Balado), you name it!
