“I would say it's one of the most complete mall in Jakarta and located nearby. Here's my typical rundown when I visit the mall with friends: - Grab brunch in Union or Monolog - If I want a full lunch, then I'd visit Remboelan - a restaurant that offers Indonesian local foods - Visit some local clothing store (CottonInk) or check-out for high quality affordable glass frames at Bridges EyeWear - Check out some books in Kinokuniya and grab Starbucks before I go back home. If I still have time, I'd visit Sephora at B1 Sogo and visit the local furniture shop right besides it. ”
