Supermarket in South Jakarta Fills Organic Gap

"The term "organic" within a restaurant's name might be a little intimidating for passersby.

Co-owner of Healthy Choice restaurant Steven Lie explodes the myth that organic food is less tasty than other food.

"There is no difference in taste between nonorganic food and organic. The only difference is the latter is healthier to consume because the ingredients have not been sprayed with pesticides nor given a hormonal injection," he said.

Steven said that the plants and animals are raised minus the chemicals or pesticides.
