An inner-city sanctuary where you can find healthy yet delicious food.Krystal Buckle 17 July 2017 10:00
South Jakarta’s latest haunt is proof that healthy doesn’t necessarily mean boring.
Abbreviated from the word sanctuary, SNCTRY is a café with a strong set of morals. Produce is sourced from their very own organic farm that supports local farmers and their communities. Built from recycled and re-purposed local products, the café takes ethical and sustainable living seriously.
Located in a building that also hosts vendors Taco Local, But First Coffee and Homemate Ice Bar, SNCTRY’s space is small but bubbly. Their menu features a range of smoothie bowls, granola, in-house raw cakes, cold pressed juice and vibrant salads.
SNCTRY’s poke bowl is its shining light. Almost like eating deconstructed sushi, sesame mayo is drizzled atop marinated tuna sashimi, avocado, edamame, seaweed, rainbow greens and brown rice in a perfect combination of salad and spice. Staff recommend pairing the bowl with their vanilla coconut chai tea, a spiced drink to warm the insides.
Be sure to check out the colorful mural beyond SNCTRY’s wooden doors, a favorite amongst those with good cameras and an active Instagram account. It’s this artsy vibe that transforms the small space into a charming hideaway.
The best part about the café’s location is that once you’re done, you can pop next door to But First Coffee. We recommend their chicken curry puff and silky smooth lattes.
