Friday Finds ☆ Common People Jakarta
It is always such a joy to walk into a new restaurant. Common People popped open at the entrance to Kemang on Kemang Raya. This is a great location because you’re less likely to be stuck in the notorious Kemang traffic. If you think you’re going to be stuck in traffic going into Kemang and you are in no rush, you can even stop by at Common People and grab some drinks or chat with friends.
You walk into Common People and the eclectic interior design with whimsical and modern touch welcomes you. The big bay windows let in the sun light and sitting in the couch by the window makes it feel like you’re sitting outside. It was really nice to sit there and chat with my friends.
The restaurant has smoking and non-smoking seats, but they are all in the same room, so the restaurant feels a bit smoky even in the non-smoking area. That’s very common in Jakarta though. I ordered from the breakfast menu and it was tasty. My friend ordered it, too and we both finished it. The lemonade with mint leaves was refreshing and quenched my thirsty throat. Price wise, I find it average expat oriented prices.
You can see this restaurant when you drive into Kemang Raya from Prapanca or driving out from Kemang Raya into Prapanca. It looks very welcoming especially at night when the warm lights are turned on.
