Are there any grocery stores that are open 24 hours a day in South Jakarta (Jakarta Selatan)? Carefour and Lotte Mart close at 22:00. People on vacation sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and want to go and get something to cook or drink...

Since Jakarta is a very big city, you may want to tell which part of Jakarta you are in. –  Rudy Gunawan May 7 '12 at 7:48

Experienced travelers know to travel with their own snacks to avoid such problems :) –  Doc May 13 '12 at 5:45
    
@Doc You can not buy enough snacks for three months! –  MeNoTalk May 13 '12 at 7:44

@Mark Mayo I believe this groceries do not open 24/7

  • The Food Hall, Bellezza Shopping Arcade (Jalan Letnan Jenderal Supeno No. 34), Jakarta Selatan, DKI Jakarta 12210

The best you can get are

These groceries stores are easy to spot, even sometimes Alfamart and Indomaret are located side-by-side. Just FYI, Jakarta is very terrible when it comes to Zoning. Which means, some places (like grocery stores) are not within walking distance. At least you will need to use motorbike to get there (unless you dont mind walking for 20 - 45 minutes, roundtrip - just to buy a pack of smoke or a can of beer).

This was harder than I thought it would be. Eventually resorted to FourSquare, with some success.

It may well be easier once you're there - locals always know these things :)

Thanks, The day i asked the question i was already there. It seems that locals sleep early so no one I asked knows anything about shops open 24 hrs.. –  MeNoTalk May 13 '12 at 7:15
