Tip-Top restaurant began when the founder, Mr. Jangkie opened a bakery at Pandu Street in 1929. The store was named after the founder himself “Jangkie”. In 1934, Mr. Jangkie moved his bakery to Kesawan Street (The name is Ahmad Yani Street now) and changed his bakery name to Tip-Top Restaurant.
During Japan’s great invasion (1942-1945) the name “Tip-Top” was forbidden. Because of that, the founder changed back its name to “Jangkie”. Right after Indonesia’s declaration of independence in 1945, the founder switched the name back to Tip-Top Restaurant.
Time goes by but the restaurant retains the concept, tradition and old recipes from the old days for their customers. The memories of the restaurant are embedded along the walls of this beloved restaurant. Tip-Top is not only well-known of their delicious foods and cakes, but also is the part of the Indonesia’s historical heritage as it is one of the oldest restaurant in Indonesia.
