Kampung Daun Restaurant, Bandung Indonesia

Mention Bandung, first thot, shopping. Most would identify with these billboards when mention Bandung. No, we didn’t shop here. We were caught in a slow traffic so we photographed from the car. Datuk K and Angel S brought us shopping at another swanky neighbourhood with big air-conditioned complexes. No, I don’t know where and was too excited to snap photos. (-_-)”. Only know I bought pajamas, blouses, hair accessories and earrings at good prices. =D

Then, comes eating.

An uphill drive to Datuk K’s favourite restaurant there.

It was quite a distance away from the bustling shopping area. Nothing prepared us for the onslaught of nature at this place. With a name literally translated as Leaf Village Restaurant, you would have thot we should not be too surprised with this:-

Small group?
A busload?
Obviously our chosen little hut was not air-conditioned. So Phitoy, you ok?
Oh, know what to do with this hanging by the hut's entrance?
Whack it for service, of course!
Lazily we fed on (hopefully I got them right):-

Iced Kelapa Muda (Young Coconut), Strawberry Juice (in Pink) and Vanilla Latte
Bakwan Jagung (Corn Fritters). Good to eat when served piping hot.
Sup Buntut Goreng set. Set means it came with rice, soup and beef. Err buntut is backside aka butt in Malay, no? Datuk K told us dont' ask, eat. Oooo buntut is meaty and juicy.
Ayam Bakar Bumbu Bali. Somewhat like Spicy Grilled or BBQ Chicken. Fingers licking good.
Ayam Panggang Madu (Grilled or Honeyed BBQ Chicken). Oh my oh my!
Gurame Bakar (Crunchy Fried Fish). Droolicious!
Credit must be given to the various sambal pastes that came with the dishes. Hot yummy stuff!

Magnanimous Datuk K bought us (again):- Website:

Njoe, also coz Bandung'a air is cooler since it is on higher grounds. Most surprising to me is none of us got mossies' bites.

Ooooh, butt soup! Surely more nutritious than soup containing other body parts!

Tummythoz said...

550ml jar of faith, hmmm no idea of the nutritional values but the taste, yum-yum.

buntut ... LOL. chewing on cow's backside. erm, yummy?!

Bandung good for shopping and food? plannign a Jakarta-Bandung getaway lah ...

Life for Beginners said...

Nothing quite like Bandung air... cooler than neighbouring Jakarta which is why it's popular with the big city's folks hitting it on weekends. :)

worldwindows said...

I like the spaciousness of the restaurants in Indonesia. Esp those with private pavilions.

Tummythoz said...

J2Kfm, Jakarta is very congested and polluted, not too unlike KL. Just Bandung for holiday would be good.

Life for Beginners, somehow it feels like Phuket or Kuta in Bali to me. But on cool dry land.

worldwindows, yeah so relaxing. There are plenty with interesting themes too.

Tummythoz said...

cumi & ciki, just make sure your hut is no where near families who nap & snore after meal while the kids run berserk screaming and pulling any interesting looking greens. ((-_-))"
