Bakmi Naripan, Bandung

Another day in was time for lunch and we decided to eat Bakmie Naripan.Well, who doesn't know Bakmi Naripan anyway?! all the bakmi lovers should have known this place.. I've been there twice and still will come back there again if I go to Bandung :p
Anyway.. speaking of bakmi.. I just knew that in Bandung there are two types of bakmi.. it's either sweet or the salty ones. At first, I wondered how the sweet ones would taste, as in Jakarta almost all bakmi are the salty type. So in order to break my curiosity, as usual, we ordered both types and also another one bowl of bakmi with grated cheese on top. We also ordered the side dishes such as baso, pangsit rebus and the legendary baso goreng!

Plate For Me, Bandung

It was a Saturday's night in Bandung again, after spending almost all day long in my friend's house, we decided to go to Riau area for dinner. We're excited to try a new place called 'Plate for me', from outside the place looked quiet at that time. But when I entered the place, almost all seats were occupied. The decoration is obviously similar with the name of this cafe, it relates with plates, almost all the walls are covered with plates. Very unique and creative.Then as I went further inside the place, there are more seats with different ambience, it's more like a small garden. There are trees around the tables and visitors are free to smoke here. Well, as my friends and I aren't smokers so we chose to seat inside.
As we looked through the menus, we decide to order 'light' food as we were planning to go for another place to eat again :p

Mie Kangkung Bu Joko

Who would have thought a fully covered house garage is actually selling the most delicious Mie Kangkung in town??! Yup... it's a garage fully covered by the wall with a small entrance, the first time I went there, I've never thought that the inside would be filled with so many people. It was a lunch trip with my friends, we quickly grab a table once we spotted an empty table and as we were starving, we immediately ordered the famous Mie Kangkung (but I change the noodle to vermicelli), Ketoprak and es Mangga as the drink. 

Hot Station

If you're craving for Penang food, Malay food or Singapore's food then Hot Station is the right place to dine! It serves many variants of those listed types of food and drinks.. such as Pratas, Nasi Briyani, Char Kway Teow, Popiah, Curry Puffs, Laksa, Teh tarik, Barley and many more..It was at around 7pm and I was stuck in a traffic with my sister.. rather than beingbored inside the car, we decided to stop by the Hot Station to have some 'light' food..'light' because we didn't want to order any rice or noodles menus hahahaha...
Well, this place is actually my sister's favorite place to eat prata as you can find so many types of prata here, whether you want it sweet or savoury, Hot Station has it all!
Just so you know guys... when my sister was pregnant, almost everyday she's craving for the Pratas and the Teh Tarik here, she could even came to Hot Station in the middle of the night!! hahahaha...

Dago Heuvel, Bandung

Another weekend in Bandung, my friend who stayed there recommend a new place to eat ANGSA.. yes, it's different from duck! She said the angsa meat is really soft and the most recommended menu is the Angsa Cabe Ijo. So, as I was so curious about it so we're heading to Dago Heuvel, it's located in Dago atas, almost at the end of the road of Dago atas. The place is so windy as it is surrounded by many trees, such a nice place but when we came there, we're the only one who dine there... probably because it's still 12pm, I think more people come at night. Anyway, when we got there, we ordered Angsa Cabe Ijo and also Angsa Madu.

Katsu Sei

It's time for Katsu Sei, as we can see from the name... it's all about katsu! There are wide varieties of katsu from chicken, pork, salmon, dori until seafood katsu. Set menus are available, complete with the soup and salad. 

Sate Kambing Mawardi, Puncak

My family decided to spend the weekend in Puncak, it was cold at that time so my cousin suggested to eat sate kambing in Mawardi. Honestly, I've never try it as usually I always eat sate kambing in Shinta, so I was pretty excited to try the Mawardi. When we reached there, all tables were taken so we had to wait like 15mins to get a table there. All of us were starving so we decided to order first so when we get the tables, our food is ready to be served.. hehehe.. 

Bubur ayam Mangga Besar

It was a pouring night and I was craving for something hot. I was thinking of a bowl of porridge, so my friends and I decided to try bubur ayam Mangga Besar which located in Kota. As usual, this place is always crowded by the visitors, we had to wait to get the tables there. Lucky enough that we didn't have to wait very long to get the table. As soon as we sat, we straightaway ordered 2 bowls of plain porridge, cakwe, 1/2 boneless Pek Cam Kee chicken, ampela and telur pitan. It all served on a plate, mixed with sesame oil and soy sauce. The plain porridge isn't taste plain as it is named, yet it's very tasty, as they added sesame oil on it and I'm pretty sure they use the kaldu ayam it becomes really yummmm... :p


It's time for Goemon, me and my friends were decided to have dinner here.. so let's give it a try!
When we arrived there, I just simply love the place, it made me feel like I was eating in Japan as the guests there were mostly Japanese. There are 'tatami' as well so we chose to sit there. As soon as we sat, the waitress approached us and gave us the menu. Honestly, as I looked at the menus, I was confused as I love most of the choices there! hahaha so what we do is that.. one person order one menu and we'll share it so we can try it all.. well that's fair enough! :p 

Bubur ayam bang Tatang

Let's get started with this famous bubur ayam bang Tatang, it's located in Rawa Belong, Palmerah.. I wonder what's so special about it as the place is very small yet always crowded... even that my mom and aunties always craving for this bubur ayam since they were teenagers! 

Okay... let's give it a try... when I came to the place with my family, it was still quite empty, so we sat there and order the bubur ayam and... WOW! when it was served right in front of my eyes, I was surprised. It is such a BIG portion of bubur ayam, bang Tatang give a very generous portion of chicken, well.. I could say more than generous as I can't even stir my porridge! *the chicken went out of my bowl when I tried to stir it..hahaha* hmmm... I even asked for an empty bowl to split my 'emping' into that empty bowl so I can stir my bubur ayam..! :p

At first I thought this bubur ayam is similar with the ordinary ones but I was wrong... This bubur ayam is really yummy, the chicken is very tender and the taste is simply delicious.. I could say this is a must try bubur ayam!

Here's the pic of bubur ayam bang Tatang:
