Last month, we drove to Bandung with a friend to spend several days there. We took a more leisurely pace this time instead of rushing like mad from place to place. We took our time, enjoying lunch, taking naps and just enjoy the city. We’re having such a good time there that we decided to extend our stay in Bandung for another day. Below are what we ate during our time there. Enjoy.
RM. Alas Daun
Recommended by a foodie friend, this is the first place we went to as soon as we arrived in Bandung. It is a nice Sundanese restaurant with a whole range of Sundanese dishes to choose from. You can easily go crazy and order everything since the dishes look very appetizing. We ordered a litle bit of this and that, and ate off a piece of banana leaf. The dishes were mostly delicious and the service courteous.
Cottonwood Bed and Breakfast
We stayed here for two days. It’s a very nice bnb with a cute cafe on the lower ground. We spent an afternoon here with coffee and tea and a potion of apple pie which tasted very good.
Cibadak Street Food
For dinner that night, we initially decided to go to Pascal Hypersquare, but the traffic that afternoon made us change course to Cibadak street (read my review here) where there are a lot of street food vendors offering many types of dishes. That night we tried chicken porridge, yamien baso with dorokdok & SC of course went for his favorite ambokueh.
Martabak Nikmat Andir
I have never tried the popular Martabak Andir, so we went there straight after dinner. There was a long queue already at the premise, so after getting our number, we settled to wait for our order: a simple cheese and chocolate rice and peanuts martabak. It was just OK for me. I felt the martabak a bit too watery and runny.
Wedang Ronde Alkateri
After that, our friend suggested we went to try Wedang Ronde Alkateri at its original location. You can actually have Wedang Ronde Alkateri at several locations in Bandung, including on Cibadak Street, but having the dessert at its first place, a narrow alley on Alkateri street, was definitely an unforgettable experience.
The next morning, I want to have nasi bakmoy at Lotek Mahmud. The location is quite tricky to find, but guided by Google Maps, we’re able to find it. After parking somewhere near the location, we continued on foot. Their pork nasi bakmoy and lotek surely made up for our effort to get to this place.
After breakfast, we went to Aroma Kopi to buy some coffee beans. After that, we went to Yellow Truck for some coffee and some working hour before lunch. It’s a nice place, but the smoking and non-smoking areas aren’t separated.
For lunch, we went to a friend’s restaurant: Gudeg Yunap (read my review HERE). That afternoon we had a feast of delicious gudeg, sambel krecek, ayam goreng lengkuas, mangut iwak pe, jangan cabe ijo, sayur bobor genjer, ratengan. Some of these dishes were cooked by Jeffry, the owner, himself.
Miss Bee Providore
After lunch, we visited Hummingbird Eatery‘s (read my review HERE) sister restaurant called Miss Bee Providore. It is a nicely designed restaurant with lots of instagenic corner. Their black russian pie is still as good as I remembered, but their paris brest was a bit too dry.
Dapur Pandan Wangi
For dinner, Jeffry recommended another Sundanese restaurant at Telaga Bodas area called Dapur Pandan Wangi. It is a nice big restaurant and that night, we again had a feast of terong raos, tumis pete telor, pencok leunca, tumis jambal roti, sop buntut, sayur asem, babat, perkedel & lalapan.
The next morning, we went to GOR Padjajaran for breakfast. It is a place for Bandung people to have breakfast right after working out/sporting (though many just go there for the food). That morning, we had a breakfast of congee, bakmi rica pangsit dorokdok from bakmi San Jose and kompia and cakue from Cakwe Lie Tjay Tat.
Two Hands Full
From GOR Padjajaran we went to this popular coffee shop called Two Hands Full and had a second breakfast there. Turned out their breakfast was as good as their coffee and tea.
This was the legendary place I went to with my university friends whenever we have something to celebrate back on my student days. These days, Toko You still has its own charm. Their rawon with grilled tenderloin steak surely attracts many fans, though SC still prefer rawon that use fattier/cheaper cuts of meat.
While SC was having his nap at Sayana Bed and Breakfast. We took a walk to Braga street where we stopped at Sumber Hidangan (Het Snoephuis) for some snacks and desserts. Their version of cafe glace was good although not as good as the one served at Toko Oen, Semarang.
For dinner we went to a foodcourt at Lengkong Besar street that is popular for its batagor. My original destination here is actually the delicious nasi pepes that I tasted years ago, but I didn’t get to eat it as they only serve nasi pepes on weekends.
We’re having lunch here before heading back to Jakarta. It’s located next to Baso Pasir Kaliki. The dishes served here were quite good and I love to eat here from time to time.
