Bir Pletok

{{totalReview}}
A traditional beverage from Jakarta, Bir Pletok is unlike what the name suggests. This wholesome, non-alcoholic Indonesian “beer” is a concoction made of various spices like ginger, lemongrass, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and secang wood (or sappanwood), which gives it its reddish tint. A drink for an instant health boost, this nighttime fix is quick and easy to serve.
