This cosy cafe offers a good menu. Wonderful to get sandwiches (after days and days of rice) on homemade bread and even calzone. There's local stuff too. Service was fast and friendly. In fact everyone there showed a friendly face and it sure helps that many spoke English. Sometimes these guys break out into a song but hey it only adds to the atmosphere. Everyone is welcomed to join in. Check out the tours on offer from Lite & Easy based in the cafe itself. We did a customised tour with an experienced guide, Fikar. Had a great time!.
everyone recommend us this restaurant, but somehow, i like the food in padang restaurants in jakarta better.
they said the restaurant has view, but the view is dissapointing.
you'll pass the restaurant if you want to go to fort the kock, it's just right at the entrance.
Favorite Dish: padang food
Eclectic, i.e. they serve western and Indonesian food. Funny guys, all of them fond of conversation, but Mr Das in particular! This picture of the restaurant was taken from the footbridge Jembatan Limpapen. Bedudal is in the foreground on the right.
Favorite Dish: Pasta Nepolitan & garlic bread, with tea and orange juice (at Rp 41,000)
We had our evening meal here - very unattractive entrance to this restaurant, but the food tasted good and they serve beer. They received quite a few recommendations on the internet (try Google)! We were here with some fellow travellers.
Favorite Dish: Babi with a sweet sour sauce.
This place is very nice for dining in terms of its price and quailty. Its old-fashioned style decorated looks really Southeast Asian, or more specifically Indonesian, but often Western or foreign customers are main stream of the profit. It locates in the very touristic centre of the town, within few minutes walk, customers can easily see everything important here. Also, there are alot of budgeted hotel near the restaurant.
The most important thing is the owner speaks fluent English; therefore, it helps a lot find out the information about touring this place.He can even be a translator.
Favorite Dish: Food sold here consist of Western, Chinese, and local, but sadly, they don't offer Nasi Padang, which is the flavoured savoury spice-rice. I had hot bef rice, which was just like what I had in Taiwan but less expensive.
My drink was iced-chocolate. It was lousy before I add condensed milk, after adding some magic element, I'd say it;s one of the very best that I've ever try. It was simply because their powder was different from int'l famous brand Milo.
I had dinner everyday during my stay in Bukittinggi. It's just a small old restaurant - probably one of the oldest in town. However, they have quite a lot of options in the menu and everything I ordered were very good. It's also quite cheap.
Favorite Dish: The "babi kecap" (pork with sweet soy sauce) is very good!
If you like spicy food (beware though as this is very spicy!) and would like to try the local food, you can try Nasi Kapau. Uni Lis is the most famous one.
Nasi Kapau is basically white rice with some vegetables and meat and off course Sambal (chilli sauce). You can choose the kind of meat you want but usually it will also include small bits of almost everything.
Go there with a local person and ask first for the price otherwise you can get surprises!
Favorite Dish: Nasi Kapau - no choice!
but you can choose the meat, chicken or beef. If you dare enough you can try "Tambusu"
this is the typical 'showing all' if you come into a padang [minangkabau] resto. they'll put all the delicacies they have so you can choose by your own. if you feel "afraid" to get tummy upsets caused by "volcano food" [read as:very spicy] you can choose several of fried assortments. like lele goreng [cat fish], ayam goreng [fried chicken], dendeng balado [fried meat] and udang goreng [fried prawn] and add some chilli sauce [red or green]. served with hot steamed rice.
minangkabauan delicacies known as "volcano" or "sangat pedas" among indonesian culinary [the others are: batak food and menado food -- both of them i like, hmmmm!!!]. but to be honest, for me >> minang food = the most spicy :)
so, nice whenever found this salad, named gado-gado, stands from steam veggies, fried tempe and tofu, shrimp crackers and peanut sauce. can be ordered pedas [spicy] or tidak pedas [not spicy].
