Try to look back the time, in he time of railway and steamship and first wireless telegraph- this is the time of the restaurant "De Indische Tafel"
Oh fr luck a VT- friend of Bandung recommend this nice place and it was real a good evening there.
See at the photos a little of the interioir-
but the special it that Restaurant seems to me the atmosphere you can`t hold at photo.
When we came in, a Holland travelgroup just celebrate a cheerful birthday, singing "Gloria, Victoria...." ....- and real - that moment seems to me to be a little back in time, so the 30-ties of last century.
The Cuisine in "de Indische Tafel" is fine and well done - good selection of belanda and indonesia...
(more later, please)
feel confuse with the picture taken? i believe so
no, you are not dreaming, those picture were taken on April 2011 at Bandung when the Cafe were finally opened as a tribute for Reenactment community specially Indonesia Reenactment Community.
yes, The owner were a re-enactor himself, have been a reenactor for IDR [Indonesian Reenactor Community] and collector of some Germany Third Reich relic, he decided to open some Cafe in Bandung to channel his hobby and also make some basecamp for any reenactor or history learner who want to learn more about history with an unconventional way.
here you can enjoy the food while watching film about World War II, listen to World War II song, read about World War II, and talk about it.
some of the owner collection were also put on display in this cafe.
Favorite Dish: Chocolate Milk Shake and Beer
why? because it was good to enjoy it while read or discuss History
The food is slightly more expansive, but it is money well spent.
The ambience and atmosphere is ideal for a quiet romantic dinner with your loved ones or family and friends.
You will be treated like kings, dining next to the scenic waterfall and the cooling weather of 16 to 18 degrees Celsius makes it so special.
Favorite Dish: Soto Madura - but it is a little bit on the salty side. I had to dilute it with water.
Potluck Coffee Bar & Library were a quite silent place where you can take a deep breath for a while in the middle of a hectic day.
In my opinion, Potluck were designed as an semi-outdoor Coffee Bar and Library. The ambiance were quite perfect with books, music, food & snack, beverages, and cozy environment.
Although the books were few compared to public library, you can found some rare books on their possession.
And there is an occasional event on the weekend, from life music to poetry reading.
honestly, i am running out of word to describe Potluck, so it's better if you just stop by and enjoy it yourself
Favorite Dish: Hot Chocolate, just a simple Hot Chocolate. Because the taste of the chocolate were felt even when you smell on it.
Enjoy a food vendor at the street of Braga, Bandung. You could find it in the afternoon til the late of night, just on the side lane of Braga street Bandung
Favorite Dish: AYAM GORENG BRAGA means BRAGA FRIED CHICKEN, where one could enjoy fried chicken in sundanese style, but not only chicken, there were also fried TAHU (tofu) and TEMPE(soybean cake) with hot chili sambals and fresh vegetables
The resto situated in an renovated old building. Nice but sometimes I think the color is not the best [since the wall painted pink ... so pinky]. But the menu are two thumbs up.
Favorite Dish: Fresh strawberry juice. No preservative added [without milk also, great!]. And Nasi Timbel Komplet [hot steamed rice wrapped in banana leaf, fresh veggie, sweet and sour soup, fried chicken, tofu and tempe and salty fish, plus chilli sauce].
PURI BAMBU is 'NON HALAL' restaurant. The old house is renovated became a family restaurant, it's very nice atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: babi= pork.
nasi goreng babi, sate babi
dessert: glutinous blck rice with durian
