Food Court: The Kiosk Food Market

The Kiosk offers you food stalls from Bandung’s local specialties. The concept is quite similar but not exactly the same as Marche or Urban Kitchen in Jakarta but the selections and the price can be the very reason why you gonna love this place. Currently there are 3 places you can visit, one in Dago, Setiabudi, and in Braga.

Let me mention everything about the local specialties that available in this place. You can pick iga bakar, satay, nasi bakar, mie kocok kikil, soto sulung ayam, nasi liwet, lotek & rujak, es campur, nasi goreng, gudeg, nasi begana, bubur ayam, baso tahu, pempek, kupat tahu, ketan bakar, and batagor. All from local favorites such as Ronde Jahe Alketeri, Iga Bakar Si Jangkung, Pempek Rama, and many others!

Mie Kocok Kikil

My favorite there of course, Mie Kocok Kikil Kebon Jukut. The one I had that day was in Braga. What is Mie Kocok? Originated from Bandung, this type of noodle, resembling fettucine, is served with thick broth plus the diced cow’s leg (kikil) with many bean sprouts. Sometimes this dish can be added with meatballs but not here. You can have it for IDR 13,000 and for bigger portion IDR 17,000. Very decent and reasonably priced plus there’s plenty other options should you return next time to venture more inside. What more can you ask?

QuikSkoop™ : Ginza Teppanyaki

Last night, we decided to go out since if not, we gonna have to endure the heat attack. Bandung has been severely hot in daylight, but luckily the night couldn’t have been friendlier.

Ginza Teppanyaki

After encountering congestion around Ciwalk and PVJ which we successfully dodged, so where else beside Istana Plaza as a good alternative besides experiencing traffic suicides? Since many restaurants closed for Lebaran, I figured that a mall would perhaps offer us better choices.

We went straight upstairs to the food court, just to find a new eatery specialized in Teppanyaki. They do, however serve Bento and Noodles in case the Teppan bar’s full, otherwise you need to wait for the seat.

The price was quite cheap, my mom picked Ginza I (Australian beef and mixed veggies) for only around IDR 25,000, while I picked Ginza II (Australian beef, chicken, and mixed veggies) for around IDR 35,000. I do however don’t recommend you to buy the juice for your drink since it’s not fresh, it’s only refrigerated Berri juices.

So we were led to the teppan bar alongside with plates full of veggies. The teppan chef directly cook the foodstuffs. He finishes the veggies first and then whatever comes next, beef, chicken, prawn, or salmon in accord with what you order. They tasted good indeed, very ‘pepperish’ and indulged you with the desire to add more rice. Plus that was probably my first time having a decent teppanyaki. A very hearty dish with a spectacle to enjoy, the teppan chef acting like bartender with the utensils while cooking. In the end, it was a very satisfying dinner. ^^
