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.
Perky Pedro : Comidas Y Bebidas, which means Perky Pedro : Foods and Drinks is a newly opened restaurant selling Mexican foods here in Bandung.
When my friend first asked me to grab a lunch at Perky Pedro, I was like : “Wow, Mexican food huh? I’ve never had any Mexican foods before. So, LET’S GO!”. But, we’re going for dinner instead.
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.
Turkish cuisine is considered to be one of the most varied and exciting in the world. Traditional Turkish food uses flavorsome natural ingredients and a fragrant mix of delightful herbs and spices which appeal to a range of different international palates. Turkish culinary tradition tends to bridge the gap between Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine through an impressive selection of typical national dishes.
Just exactly last weekend, Fred came by for a short visit. It’s been more than a month (or two?) since we last met. And the fact that he made a plan to visit me last weekend really excites me! There are actually so many places I’m planning to go – mostly are restaurants I never had a chance to visit. But turned out, we visited none of them. We picked random places which is not on my list and all of them turns out to be surprising.
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.
One of my friend once asked : “Did you ever went to a restaurant, or a diner you’ve been willing to go for such a long time and then you’ll find the food to be disappointing?”
Of course I did! From an expensive stuffed chicken breast in Kayu Manis (listed to be #1 restaurant in Sanur, Bali) to a cheap Takoyaki I found beside a bookstore in Bandung. They’re all terrible. I just didn’t seem to have a mood to write ’em up in my blog. Ugh. Remembering those foods really annoys me. But I think I’ll start writing my bad experience up as well so there will be less people misguided, like me.
You know what? Bandung is quite popular for its large variety of foods. I guess that’s the reason people keep coming back to Bandung on weekend – besides the perfect weather. It’s well known for its outdoor fine dining due to its pleasant climate in the noon. And also, for its street foods.
I’m soooo glad I got a chance to attend a university in Bandung. It’s like opening a chance for me to explore the city even more! So I guess moving out to Bandung has made me who I am today. A girl who loves traveling and taking pictures, well yeah, and eating. I wrote about Bandung in One Day days ago, and I’m thinking about writing another one.
