Nestled in the popular Taman Tun Dr Ismail food hotspot lies a neighborhood eatery run by Jessica (JE) and David (DA), the super couple duo that makes up Jeda Cafe & Diner. Enjoy their dual-menu of Indonesian rice bowls for lunch and Southern fried hot chicken for dinner – talk about the best of both worlds!

In the Weekdays Lunch Sets, feast on What’s The Mattah (RM15) which is fried chicken fillet with Balinese sambal “Mattah”, the Ayam Geprek Jeda (RM15), a “smashed'' fried chicken fillet with sambal bawang, or Obladi O Balado (RM15), a vegetarian dish of sambal “Balado” eggplant, all served on a bed of steamed rice (upgrade to Jeda Rice for fragrant rice cooked with shredded kaffir lime leaves, torch ginger flower and crispy shallots). Also, introducing a new addition to their sambal repertoire: Ayam Cabe Ijo, made with green chilli and is the zesty, milder, ‘greener’ cousin to their sambal bawang used for their Ayam Geprek.

The Dinner Menu is unavailable during the MCO, but once they bring it back, expect to enjoy Southern fried hot chicken (RM20-22) and Hot Chicken Bun (RM25), with 4 heat levels to choose from.

Fun fact: Jeda is an Indonesian word that translates roughly to rest time, or “waktu rehat” in Bahasa Melayu.
