Western Indonesian, Congo, Bandung, West Java

Night in Bandung, West Java is one excited moment for most people when visits here and so do i. This Sat night i spend time with my family at Dago area for dinner. We are going to Congo restaurant, it is one of famous restaurant and has become top 10 list in some food forum and websites. As many restaurant, Congo also built in Sundanese concept where we may see many wooden elements, plants, and stones. 

What special in here is the magnificent view, place and ambience giving a great feeling, mild and fresh air is exactly what i need after been long week in Crowded city. in Congo, we may order two kind of foods which is Indonesian or western food. There's a rice, soto, sop Iga bakar or tenderloin steaks, pasta, burger and many others.

First i am having Grilled Kakap Steaks. It is Kakap fish been grilled, with chili sauce, bunch of vegetables and seasoned grilled potato.


Stunning color of fish, good cut and texture. chili flavor give a spice mixed well with the fish. side dishes are good as well. next dish is Beef Steak with Mushroom Sauce.


i am not really recommended this dish in medium or rare grilled level. Since it's using local beef, so i totally advised to pick medium well meat. it has local meat taste, so do't expect it similar with western beef meat. It has tight texture, not really juicy but for local food level, i guess it has a taste. Next dish is Grilled Chicken with BBQ Sauce.


This is just fine, chicken cooked well done, BBQ sauce not really great, i just feel it is an instant sauce from market. Mashed potato taste dry. Somehow people try to understimate how to produced chicken as ingredient. In fact, chicken could be wrong when not properly cook, dry should be unhappy result. Last dish i have is typical Indonesia cuisine, Sop Buntut Bakar. It is a grilled oxtail with rice, vegetables, chilli and beef broth soup.


As we know West Java having many great dishes, and this is one of top foods we may found in Bandung city.
