What to Eat in Batam

When you think of Batam, your mind would most likely wander over to the affordable spas, massages, and shopping – but these are not all it has in store for you. Other than these popular activities to do in Batam, there is an increasing trend for visitors to visit the best looking café and try the yummiest local food.



Food Court


Batam has quite a few food courts, most of which are only open at night. In the local food courts of Batam, several hawker-style outlets participate in serving plates full of deliciousness to people. These food courts are economical and usually located near a mall, which gives easy access to some affordable spas and shopping stores nearby. If you are looking for a place where you can enjoy a genial meal with a group of four to five without having to burn a hole in your pocket, food courts are a place you don’t want to miss out on.
