THINGS TO DO IN BANDUNG: WHERE TO EAT AND RELAX

Bandung has always been a destination for domestic tourism. This city somehow delivers its beauty from the atmosphere, the people, and of course the food. I did make a spontaneus 2 days trip with my brother. Let's see if my stories can give any suggestion for you about where to go in Bandung! 

CAFE LULA
Located next to Glosis in Cisangkuy area, this little cafe has its own signature with their bakery and restaurant. They have several selections of smoothies bowls and breakfast menu, which was pretty enjoyable. My personal favorite was YELLOW SUBMARINE (50k), made of pineapple and peach smothies and fruit toppings. Very refreshing.

COMMON GROUND COFFEE
I had some favorites cafes in Bandung, but when I had to choose for one comfort coffee, Common Grounds Coffee Bandung is the one. Dominated in white, minimalist ambiance, and good coffee were surely a perfect description for them. Personal favorite? Their Flora Technica for sure! Don't forget to take a bite at their cherry crumble, scrumptious!

SUDIRMAN STREET FOOD
Located next to the well-known Cibadak street, this food street is kinda cool. Somehow I found the food was dominated with pork based, which was  very make me drool! I tried fettucine with pork from JURRASIC PORK and pork sated egg from XIAN DAN SALTEDEGG. Both of them are very flavorful, enjoyable pork, and pleasing. Don't forget to try kue pukis, my personal favorite because it was buttery and fragrant as well. Happy tummy indeed!

MARTABAK ASAN BANDUNG
I've heard this martabak several times but did not try it before. I was craving for martabak but did not want to be too heavy so I decided to have this one. One bite and I was like Oh My God! The buttery crispy martabak was soo good it was like having tasty crepe but thicker. I had one with cheese and very enjoyable. Gonna back for sure!

PANDAN WANGI SUNDA RESTAURANT
Trying out something new is always interesting, but sometimes I just want something within my comfort zone. This one is my favorite everytime I do crave for Sundanese food. Try their terong raos: crispy eggplant with sweet and salty seasoning, so good!

FARM HOUSE LEMBANG
One world to describe it: pretty! Everything inside was so lovely and very instagenic. Entrance fee was 20k per person and I honestly think it was so worth it! The entrance coupon could be exchange with free fresh milk, which they sold for 30k/glass. 
Basically it was lotsa pretty building contained of food stalls, souvenirs, restaurant, and cafe. They also had pretty corner that really interest many people with its hobbit house. I personally loved this place and hope that it would stay clean like this in the future.

LAWANGWANGI CREATIVE SPACE
It was something you should try if you wanted to see something new like architectural things. Too bad it was under renovation when I got there. Lucky me, they got nice cafe in the second floor with pleasing view: Bandung from above. They also had local store that sold local bags, clothes, books, etc.

THE LODGE EARTHBOUND
Located in 1 hour-drive from the city, this camping area was so relaxing. Everything was so green and soothing as well. The air was super fresh, such a perfect place to retreat from the city life. Oh, they have a tree house which was very pretty for me. Entrance fee was 15k/person. Although it was quite far, the access to this place was quite good, although it was not recommended to ride with your small/city car.
