Dessert time now… Ragusa Italian Ice Cream, quite a well-known oldies ice creams stall in Jakarta since 1932 and still exist today. Most people visit Ragusa Stall to bring up their childhood memories.

‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ this idiom suits for this old-fashioned ice cream stall. From its old-fashioned place you will not have an idea how good their ice cream tasted. Ragusa ice cream seemed comparable to nowadays ice cream. The founders of Ragusa Ice Cream store were Italians, they create their ice cream from good quality Australian milk, so no wonder their price is slightly higher for just an ice cream. But still, its worth to try.

First we ordered their best seller Spaghetti Ice Cream. Hmm weird? Is not spaghetti pasta, is a vanilla ice cream in spaghetti shaped sprinkled with chopped nuts, mixed dry fruits, and chocolate sauce.

Next is a typical Banana Split, three flavors of ice cream; vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate served with slices banana, chocolate sauce, and sprinkled with chopped nuts and mixed dry fruits.

Tutti Fruity Ice Cream, served in sliced ice cream.

Nougat Ice Cream sprinkled with nougat.


Lastly for chocolate lover, Chocolate Ice Cream with chocolate sauce and sprinkled with chopped nuts.


With an old ancient building located at Central Jakarta, and the oldies interior you can experience old Jakarta ambiance. My fren said we can also enjoy several typical Indonesian foods and tidbits there. Sadly we visited Ragusa at nite so we run out of it, next time we'll get there earlier. For the price Ragusa Ice Creams go from Rp.7.000 to Rp.21.000
