ISFC2016: Enjoying Indonesian Cuisines

What I love most about travelling is the opportunity to taste the local cuisine. Come and see what I had when I was in Bandung.

Surabi!!!  It looks like Serabai in Malaysia, but unlike Serabai, Surabi comes with different toppings.

I had it twice. First I had it with sweet banana topping and second time I went for strawberry topping.

There are a lot of Surabi cafes at Jalan Setiabudhi which is closed to Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI).

My next favourite dish while in Bandung was nasi kuning. There is no nasi lemak in Bandung, but they have nasi kuning. It reminds me of my late mum’s nasi parpu or kacang dal or lenthil because the colour is obviously daaa yellow.

And the next is nasi urap

Nasi urap or urab is steamed white rice eaten with salad and not forgetting sambal (hot spicy gravy).

Angklung Show – It was a tough fight between Malaysia and Indonesia in claiming Angklung as the heritage of the country. Indonesia finally won the battle in 2010 where Angklung was declared as the heritage of Indonesia. The participants got the chance to play with Angklung at the dinner and it was so fabulous.
