Last Friday, Fred came by for a short visit. The only reason he did was only because of the so called Braga Festival 2013, I guess. But then… since the festival itself is a bit disappointing, we decided to give our selves a nice dinner.
I’ve heard so many people mentioning Origin House and Kitchen as one of the must-visit bistro in Bandung. They all were like : “You should go! It has a great ambiance and good food too!” or “What? You never went to Origin before? You must be kidding. It’s one of my favorite.”
They somehow took the curiosity out of me, in so many ways. And so we went.
As I walked in, I was stunned of how great the place is. It is indeed interesting! You would found a neat organic mini mart at the front of the building, then if you walk any further, you’ll find a cute little household store and also a bakery.
And the last one you’ll find at the very back is the restaurant itself. And all of them are so incredibly well organized with the green concept. I found the restaurant really cozy.
Anyway, there are also some seat available upstairs. But from what I read in foursquare, sitting upstairs might not be the best choice since you might not get served quickly. And I also found that the atmosphere is not as comfortable as the one downstairs, so….
It’s just a little bit dark up there, and I found that the table set is not suitable for dinner. But it might be a great coffee table 😉
Fred was craving for Indonesian or Asian cuisine, I guess. And I was craving for some Italian food or something. Lucky us that Origin House and Kitchen does serve both! So, I had a plate of Fettuccine Carbonara while Fred had something called Honey Roasted Organic Chicken. And they tasted uh-ma-zing!
The Fettuccine Carbonara they serve was so rich and unique. Unlike any other Carbonara, it does have a little bit of sour flavor. I guess they put some lemon in there. And surprisingly, lemon fits best!
The Honey Roasted Organic Chicken is so tender, and sweet, and savory. I can’t stand taking Fred’s chicken away from his plate.
For the drink, I had myself a big cup of Hot Chocolate and Fred had something called Body Booster. It’s kind of a vegetables & fruits juice. They put strawberry, carrot, and many other stuffs in there. I didn’t take a sip of his drink, but I can see he likes it.
The hot chocolate? Don’t ask me. It’s so rich, and warm, and not-too-sweet. I don’t know. It just fits me best for a chilly night.
I’m soooo happy we did check out what Origin House and Kitchen is all about. It turns out to be one of the restaurant I want to come back anytime! The food and the place is just perfect for me. We will definitely come back for more food! 🙂
Thanks for such a great dinner, Origin!
