Bandung is one of the most stunning and unique city in Indonesia. I fell in love with the panoramic views of the mountains this city has to offer the moment I moved here. Not to mention the fresh air and the cool breeze! Many even said Bandung shares the similar atmosphere with European cities. You know, there are many luxurious hotels, restaurants, and cafe were opened. PLUS the old buildings here were designed by Dutch architects during the Dutch colonization. Hence, Bandung is known as Parijs van Java (the Paris of Java). One of my favorite activity here in Bandung is dining at a place which offers great ambiance and view, and the most important thing, GREAT FOOD! It’s a good thing that The Restaurant at Padma Hotel offers both. Lanjutkan membaca “Friday Night Seafood Buffet at Padma Hotel Bandung”
Have you ever crave for some Thailand, Malaysian, and Singaporean cuisine at once? Well, I haven’t. (Is that even possible?) But, good news for you guys who just said yes!
There’s this newly opened restaurant in Bandung which serves Thailand, Malaysian, and Singaporean food in one place. It’s MAMAK KITCHEN and located just in the same building with Heritage Factory Outlet.
If you’ve been following my Instagram, or even better, if you know me personally, you might already noticed that I am such a coffee addict. I think my parents should be proud of me because I’m addicted to coffee, not to drugs.
Anyway, I ALWAYS have my coffee first thing in the morning. It’s a black strong one. And it’s peaberry coffee – if you know what I’m talking about. Even if I wake up late, I somehow still managed to brew my morning coffee, by any chance. Believe it or not? I’d rather be late than to skip my morning routine. I found, that without the kick from the coffee, I have difficulty doing my activity, even the simple one like…. walking to class. Ha!
Quick question : “How much time does one usually need to make an ice cream?”
Two hour? Three hour? Perhaps more.
But this technique will only take you about 5 minutes until you can enjoy your lovey dovey ice cream. No ice, no electric ice cream maker, no fridge, no waiting time. All you need is a tiny amount liquid nitrogen (yes, you heard me) and some other ingredients, and you’re ready to go.
I rarely go to Sukajadi or Setiabudi area since it’s pretty far from where I live. I mean, not that kind of far that will takes more than an hour to drive, but, it’s far for me since I have no private car here (and even if I do, I can’t drive) and I have to take a public transportation instead. So when Fred came by last weekend, I took advantage of him. I mean, of his car. I ask him to take me to Setiabudi Supermarket so I could FINALLY get my sea salt, yay! Going to make some more pretzels later.
Sukajadi and Setiabudi areas are quite popular among Jakartans. There are malls and dozen of restaurants, which later I found to be the main thing that attracts people to keep going there.
Jubilare Wine and Dine is one of them. We found in Tripadvisor that Jubilare is the #1 Restaurant in Bandung. That is exactly what makes Fred don’t feel like he want to miss it this time. After spending our afternoon at Lembang, we went hungry like crazy and decided to check Jubilare out. Well, it was all Fred’s idea. He even planned it before he reached Bandung.

November used to be my favorite month of the year. Since it’s always raining here in Bandung and the weather is just perfect. But it didn’t rain as much as last year. Instead, I found that this year, the rain never stops pouring on December.
So I guess December is my new favorite month. It’s even better when there are Christmas tree, the carols, the cake, the warm greetings, the weather, the idea of Santa and his gifts. I love it. I somehow thinks that they are magical.
You’ll never go hungry in Bali, that much is certain! There are a lot of foods offered from traditional Balinese foods just anywhere down the streets to an international fine dining at a hotel. This island of gods does has a huge range of choices from cafes, restaurant, street foods, bakeries, to local places to eat. That’s one of the reason I keep coming back to Bali. I just can’t refuse the foods and the hospitality it offers.
Weeks ago, I got a recommendation from Bayu Amus about some famous Bandung culinary destinations from fancy cafe to legendary diner. Toko You happened to be one of them. Many other food bloggers also recommend this place for me. In fact, they’re quite surprised I know nothing about Toko You before.
I was like, how could I not notice this place before? It’s been there since the 80s! Well, blame it on their restaurant sign – THERE ARE NO SIGN AT ALL! And what I mean by ‘no sign’ is really.. nothing. Not even a small board written Toko You.
