Have we just found Jakarta’s best new dining app? Club Alacarte is jam-packed with buy-one-get-one offers that get members free food and perks at some of the city’s top restaurants, cafes, and bars - and we've got 20 memberships to giveaway!
As Honeycombers Editors, we love our third-wave coffee, fine dining restaurants, and Hot New Tables, but all that dining out can burn a quick hole in our wallets. Luckily, we’ve found a nifty money-saving dining app that lets us eat at all the best restaurants in Jakarta without breaking the bank! This little hero is called Club Alacarte, a super easy to use mobile app that gets members buy-one-get-one dining offers at tons of top restaurants, cafes, and bars in the city. From romantic date nights to weekend brunch, and cheeky Thursday night tipples with the workmates to your regular Monday meeting caffeine fix, Club Alacarte will let you save big in 2018.
Sound too good to be true? Ahead, we’ve put together 5 of our favourite dining spots in Jakarta where you can claim these dining privileges – with even more to come in 2018. We’re even doing you a solid – scroll down below to find out how you can score a free membership to Club Alacarte. Trust us, you need this dining app in your life now.
Spoil your date at Ristorante Da Valentino
Want to impress that hot new date of yours at one of the most romantic restaurants in town? Rack up serious brownie points by bringing your S.O. to Ristorante Da Valentino, where you can wine and dine them without putting too much stress on your wallet (they never have to know). At Valentino, diners get two-for-one offers on pizza, pasta and most importantly, dolci! Indulge in stunning tiramisu, soufflé al cioccolato, gelato, panna cotta – we could go on forever.
Feast on Middle Eastern delights at Turkuaz
Hankering for big exotic meats packed with Middle Eastern flavour? Grab your most hungry mates and make a beeline for Turkuaz, one of our favourite restaurants in town, to tuck into winning Turkish fare by the one and only Chef Sezai Zorlu. Snag buy-one-get-one offers on their share-worthy mezze platter, selections of flavoursome kebabs, and not-to-be-missed hand-rolled baklava, among other desserts on offer.
Get your caffeine fix at Common Grounds Coffee
If caffeine is your game, grab a fellow coffee-snob and snag a two-for-one offers on the best cuppa in town. Common Grounds Coffee is one to take their caffeine very seriously, and their reputation for brewing some of the best coffee in Jakarta is well-deserved. What goes better with coffee than good ole’ comfort food? With offerings like Crispy Chicken and Waffles and Tiramisu Waffles this is the spot for the perfect weekend brunch.
Grab breakfast at any time of day at Benedict (coming in 2018!)
If you agree that breakfast is the most important meal of all, then Benedict is the place for you. Breakfast is easily the star of the show at this joint, serving up morning goodies at all times of the day. Love sharing breakfast plates? Use your two-for-one dining privileges on their Pork Belly Benedict, Wagyu Steak Frites Benedict with truffle fries, Pandan Waffles with corn crumble and bruleed banana, and more drool-worthy brunch items. That’s not all, members get the two-for-one treatment for Benedict’s sweet treats like Churro Sundae and homemade ice cream with flavours like Earl Grey, popcorn, and peanut butter with cookie dough.
Be thrilled by seasonal grub at Attarine Jakarta (coming in 2018!)
At Attarine Jakarta, members can get two-for-one offers on weekend free-flow wine! You know what that means? Time to pop over with your BFF to gripe about anything and everything. If drinking your weight in wine isn’t your thing, Attarine’s stunning seasonal fare is always a favourite of ours – order the Pumpkin Gnocchi with Shredded Duck and Skillet Bobotie to share. Got a sweet tooth? We’re pretty much always down for a double order of their famous dough fritters.
Have we whetted your appetite? Good! Now that you know why Club Alacarte is the latest must-have dining app – it’s time for the technical stuff. A full-year’s membership costs IDR 599,000 – peanuts compared to the savings you’ll make (that’s up to IDR 50 million in dining costs a year!) To make things interesting, there’s even a function on the app that shows you how much money you’ve saved by using their privileges. Just whip out the Club Alacarte app before you ask for your bill to redeem your two-for-one deal. There’s a two-step pin verification process, and once that’s all sorted the waiter will remove the free item from your final bill. Easy! The only catch is that members can only use each offer once. But hey – that means a full food tour of checking out all of Jakarta’s amazing cafes and restaurants and we’re all here for it.
