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. Baca lebih lanjut
Now, let’s talk about everyone’s favorite topic : FOOD!
This post is gonna be a little bit longer that usual since this one is a compilation post about some of my favorite places to eat in Bandung. You know, I’m to lazy to write an individual post for each restaurant review, that’s why I wrote this one. The good thing is, there will be more compilation post to come!
The post itself will mostly describes about what I like and what I don’t really like about the restaurant – if there’s any. And please note that this opinion of mine is very subjective. It really depends on my mood that day, and the service that day. You know, it all can just change anytime.
Okay! So, this time, I’m gonna feature some of the well known Restaurant and Cafe in Bandung, which are not exactly cheap in pricing, but I found these places to be very cozy and kinda fancy for a romantic dinner and surely not a place you want to miss in Bandung. Who’s got a date anyway? Baca lebih lanjut
Last week, I went to Warung Sangrai for dinner along with the other Bandung foodies.
Located at Jalan Cihampelas Bandung, this place is so easy to spot! Just walk down the Cihampelas street and keep your eyes to the right side of the street, like literally, and pretty much you’ll find it easily. It’s located just exactly beside the gas station.
I can’t believe there’s a new coffee shop near my boarding house which serves great coffee. Yes, you might have seen some of my photos in my Instagram, and yes again, it’s Booster Society, a newly opened (just around 3 months) coffee shop in Dago. The best thing is, beside the coffee and the food, it’s located just at the one side of the main street. From Mcd Simpang Dago, go straight to Dago Pakar and keep your eye on the right side of the street. Then most likely you will find Booster Society easily.
Having grown up as a child who watched Harry Potter, I’ve always have this special little thing about Britain. You know, the accents (oh my God, they’re sexy), the Big Ben, the Queens guard, the typical British telephone booth. I know they all sounds silly. But, hey, all of them are just too lovely for me.
It surprised me that there’s actually a restaurant in Bandung with vintage British concept. Could it be the only one? Not sure.
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.
As I have mentioned earlier in my previous post, Fred & I are currently living in Bali for a pretty long time. The fact is, we’re gonna spend 2 months here doing our summer internship. Well, I know it sounds like we’re going to be at the office from 8 to 5 during our weekdays and there’s nothing fun about it. But still we can spend our weekends exploring Bali, right?
So, here are some highlights of what we did last week. We spent our first week mostly in Sanur and Kuta. And we’re planning to explore Ubud next week. Baca lebih lanjut
Oh well, here comes another rainy day. I love the fact that the rain never stop pouring in November. And I got even more excited when I found out that the rain never stops in December as well. But you know, weather does, in fact, affect your appetite. I mean my appetite.. People living in cold climates tend to burn more calories each day just to keep their body warm. At least that’s what I read from the internet. So I guess that’s why I’m gaining some weight these days.
… Hey, I’m just trying to made up a pretty-reasonable story why I got this fat big ugly belly.
So, to fulfill my appetite, my sisters and I decided to take a coffee time at Hummingbird Eatery, one of everyone’s favorite cafe in Jalan Progo, Bandung, Indonesia. This place can be easily recognized from its ‘bird’ theme. And you know what? Hummingbird does have a huge bird nest that covers the outdoor seats! How cute is that? Baca lebih lanjut
