The dual standard of service for local and foreign customers in Indonesia

An interesting article posted on Jakarta Globe yesterday about the tendency of restaurants in Indonesia to prioritize foreigners; a situation which based from stories of my fellow (Indonesian) good food hunters tend to be true, up to some degree.

However it usually applies on major tourist destinations like Jakarta and Bali, while everywhere else the symptoms are less severe; since there are not much foreigners to prioritize anyway.

The Indonesian government should close down any establishment that shows a double standard. Biases and inequality have no places in any society.
