Right now's most popular place to grab some burgers, Three Buns! It's at Senopati, really easy to find, it's after Cacaote and Izakaya Issei. Anyways, like most restaurants on Senopati, the parking lot is really small and you'll probably decided to go valet. The good news is, you can pay as much as you're willing to, they don't name the price, you do. Even from outside you can see how different this place is.

Even from outside, you can tell that this place is gonna be eco-friendly.

They only have 6 types of burgers here :
Baby Huey, Four Floors, Burning Man (spicy) : Beefs
Rambo : Lamb
Honky-Tonk : Chicken
The Roots : Veggie

You see this van here? It's the only thing that separates the restaurant and the car park, it's also where you'll place your orders. It's self-service here, so you're gonna place your orders on the van, pay, and pick the foods up on your own. You'll be given a number and if your number flashes on the board, that means your patience is soon to be payed off, so go get your burger and dig in!

This is where you pick up your beverages, by the way, that's the number board on the left.

There are 2 floors here, I sat on the upper floor and from there I can amazingly see all of what's below you, but honestly, the stairs are a horror. I even saw one of the waitress slipped on those stairs. The furniture is really something! It's mostly wood and plants, how eco-friendly, don't you think? I felt like I was eating overseas, the only down side is that the thin roof made it super hot, even with the AC, which by the way, was powerless against the strong heat. Personally, I think it's not something suitable in Jakarta, I was seriously heat struck! I suggest coming here at 3 o'clock and up, when it's not that blazing hot. It was already very crowded when I came here and I arrived like half an hour after they opened, which was at 11 am, so you can just imagine how hot it was.

The tables and chairs here on the second floor is really simple yet unique.

This is where you get condiments: chili sauce and 2 other sauce which I think 1 is somewhat like grilled chicken sauce and 1 BBQ, and plastic cutleries, also tissue papers.

Before I destroyed it to take the photos the way I want :p

Spiced Bearnaise, beef chili, crisp shallots, Parmesan & sesame seeds.
This is the famous side dish here. After one bite, you'll understand why it's famous. The toppings and sauce made it sweet and sour, also a bit spicy (not so much though, still tolerable). I actually like the shallots, it's really crispy. The Parmesan just made everything perfect and well balanced. Add the beef and it's deliciously perfect! What's amazing is that, with all the sauce and melted parmesan, the fries stay crispy even after it was abandoned due to picture taking. Absolutely recommend this! It's just incomplete without this.

Prime 150g beef patty, cheese, lettuce, ketchup, pickles & spiced mayo.
Both burgers we ordered is beef, but if you want something else, they have chicken and lamb. It's halal, so no pork here. The meat is actually flavorless, but that's what the sauce is for. If you want more sauce, they provide the condiments that you can add to you burger. But I personally, is satisfied with the already over flowing sauce in the burger, so no extra needed for me. The spiced mayo really has a rich taste and the buns are incredibly soft! One bite and you'll forget about the heat and probably everything else.

Double prime 100g beef patties, double cheese, triple onions, lettuce, pickles, ketchup & den miso mayo.
It tastes mostly the same as Baby Huey, the only difference is that Four Floors = Baby Huey x 2. If you don't like vegetables in your burgers, you can ask them for no veggies, and since it's big, you can ask them to cut your burgers into half or 4 to your convenience. This one is huge, it's enough for 2 of us and we weren't able to even finish it since we ordered 2 burgers and fries.

Secret botanical mix.
It's coke with lime in it, you'd probably have the impression of it being tangy and limey, but you're wrong. It was unexpectedly sweet and very refreshing. I'm really curious of what's in this secret mix, there's something different with the taste. You'll need this after a hot day, the soda and slight tanginess will freshen you up almost immediately!

Citrus sherbert lemonade.
I was planning on buying just 1 drink, but that certainly was not enough. So this lemonade is a perfect partner to keep me fresh. Too bad the drinks here are so small and filled with ice cubes, just a few slurps and it's gone. I'd recommend bigger cups, I mean, come on, we're dying from heat in here.

They covered the roof with some kind of nets, which made it soooo much cooler!! Thank God for that! You have to experience it to now how much this means to me.

I wanted to try their chicken wings but I was too full because of the 2 HUGE burgers plus fries. Definitely would come back to try it soon! We hanged out here until 3 pm and the sun was not as scorching as it was at 12. A little bit of advice, if you're planning to come here at noon, be warned that you're gonna be sweating a LOT, so as little make up as possible, and casual clothes. You can get dolled up if you came at night though, but the place is gonna be dimly lit. They opened until late but even before that sometimes the burgers are sold out and just some fries would be available, well that's what happened to my friend. I think Three Buns is really the best burger in town, it might be pricey but it's most definitely worth it!
