Stepping into Cemal Cemil is like stepping back into childhood in old Jakarta! Relive childhood memories, or learn with your kids for the first time such time-honored Indonesian games as Bekel, Congklak, Kelereng and Ular Tangga. Munch on old school candies you may have thought obsolete!
This cozy store, run by friendly owners, displays varieties of nostalgic biscuits, sweets, savory snacks, toys and games from the 70’s & 80’s. Kids will have a blast, and so will you! Try out the biscuits and wafers in traditional, antiquated tins that you can buy by weight. One of the old-fashioned candies available is the Ting Ting Jahe, which Indonesians believe is the best ginger candy you’ll find anywhere in the world. It has a smooth, chewy texture, with an excellent spicy taste that lingers after you’ve eaten it, plus it aids digestion and freshens the breath after meals!
Relive childhood memories, or create new (sweet) ones for your kids!
