This dataset shows survey data on the characteristics of the cultural dimension of food consumption patterns in urban communities in Indonesia. The cultural dimension discussed in this article includes the cultural value and cultural practice sub-dimensions. Data is enriched by illustrating the cultural characteristics of urban people's food consumption patterns based on social class categories. Data collection was conducted in five major cities of Indonesia with face-to-face interviews with 710 respondents obtained using a stratified random sampling technique. The results of data show that the cultural dimension is quite dominant in influencing the pattern of food consumption of urban communities in Indonesia compared to the economic and health dimensions. Even though conceptually the value and practice sub-dimensions are integrally related, the cultural dimension of food consumption patterns in urban communities are still more dominated by the value sub-dimension. In the food consumption pattern, the urban upper classes are more dominantly influenced by economic dimensions and modern healthy lifestyles than cultural dimensions.
