Bandung, one of favorite city for culinary hunting. This time i visiting Kampung Daun, one of Sundanese restaurant spotted in Lembang,West Java. As we know all around here is having mild air, clean, windy and cold sometimes. Kampung Daun is authentic Sundanese restaurant with really green concept. Traditional wooden house as the eating spot, trees over all the restaurant.
I am here with my family, we order several Indonesia typical dishes. start by Karedok. It is a raw vegetables mixed with peanut sauce.
All fresh ingredients mixed in tasty peanut sauce. Vegetables texture are crunchy and completed with Kerupuk. Next starter is Batagor, another typical Indonesia Sundanese dish, fried fish dumplings usually served with peanut sauce.
For this one i think peanut sauce not strong enough, it more sweet soy sauce taste. But fish and tofu are cooked well done. After two starters, we are ready for our main course with a Nasi Pepes Kemangi with Sambal Pete. It is a rice in leaf, with basil, soybean completed with petai or bitter bean chili.
Food smells good, authentic Sundanese is strong here, basil giving a nice flavor and Petai chili is awesome. Next dish i'd like to describe is Grilled Gurame with Dabu Dabu Chilis.
Stunning color with great smell. It looks beautiful poured with fried onion and chlli looks fresh and good. It does taste great, nice white fish meat perfect with the sour chili taste and of course super hot! Another Gurame dish is Gurame Soup.
This one has beautiful plating using little frying pan on tiny stone stove with little fire inside to keep it warm. soup having strong sour taste, giving a buzz and fresh flavor. Fish cooked well done, looks beautiful color and meat texture in good condition. For closing we are having Surabi, one on authentic West Java dish.
This is Surabi Oncom. i am not recommended for this one. Surabi too dried and oncom does feels burned. I can't taste any flavor only dry dough with fired oncom on it. another surabi isSurabi with coconut sauce.
This one has nice green colour in thick white coconut sauce. Sauce give much flavor but the surabi has same texture as the Surabi Oncom, it is too dry and it wont blended well with the sauce, taste like two dishes in one plate together. Don't forget before leave i have a glass of aloe vera ice. Well it has beautiful color and slices of fresh aloe vera, but i don't expect for yellow syrup to make it beautiful, freshness from it own should be better.
