When it comes to exercising, many of us in Jakarta has developed much improved lifestyle over the years. You can see by the many sport clubs there are around your area. Healthy eating is also essential for the balance. Although there aren’t that many eateries in Jakarta that provide that, I think the market here is booming. Like this little breakfast spot in Darmawangsa called SNCTRY (pronounced: Sanctuary). There are much buzz about this tiny hidden gem, right next to Plataran restaurant, and I was eager to take a peek myself.
Although the inside is small,there are a table for four people and a bar table that can fit another four, with another outside seats too if you prefer outdoor air. SNCTRY has plenty of photo corners for those with narcistic blood (like myself 😊). The mural and blue door has to be it’s landmark, as you will, perfect spot for your camera eyes. Take note that they only take cash here, there’s no other food but breakfast granola, salad, and vegan food, but there are many other restaurants connected to SNCTRY like Taco Local and other eateries, so you can still have choices.
The food here is staying true with its vegan, raw and organic healthy style. Here’s what I ordered:
Green Bowl (IDR 60.000): Yogurt, banana, apple, spinach, Spirulina with added Oat (IDR 15.000) If you’re not familiar with the last one, Spirulina is fresh water algae that is rich in protein,Omega 3, vitamin,calcium and can boost your immune system. This dish is colorful, gorgeous on sight and has the elements of creamy and crunch.
Granola (IDR 60.000): Homemade granola with apples and Cinnamon notes, topped with apple, strawberries,banana and yogurt. The granola was crunchy and satisfying. With extra crunch from the Almonds and sweetness from the raisins. The yogurt was plain but works well with the fresh fruits.
Japanese Salad (IDR 65.000): Vegetables, grilled Miso eggplant, cucumber, grated carrots, grilled onion, crunchy tempeh, brown rice with Ginger Soy dressing. Another rainbow bright dish, this one is savory and also has the balanced crunch and hearty from the toppings. Obviously good for your body and delicious tasting too!
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Bar (IDR 26.000): Vegan cookie with no egg and dairy, but surprisingly tasty with sweetness from the chocolate chips, a touch of salty from the almonds, it’s crunchy and all good.
I could say that SNCTRY has given me Sanctuary for my mind and body, with delicious healthy breakfast and refreshing experience. I would come back for another heavenly meal in another day.
