Situated in the heart of the city and a few blocks away from one of the key shopping spots, one would expect the setting to be monotonous and typical of a restaurant in the city. But not here! This restaurant boasts an impressive décor and landscaping. There are also small huts (bale) surrounding a well-tended garden which provides patrons with a cool and relaxing atmosphere to dine in.

4. Ayam Goreng Suharti

You don't have to travel far for finger-licking good fried chicken in Bandung. Ayam Goreng Suharti stacks up among the Western fast food chains that are widely available around Bandung and is ranked as one of Indonesia’s very own fast food restaurants. The chicken is nice and crunchy on the outside, but served hot and warm - keeping the flesh inside soft and tender?

The food here is simple, and as the name implies it mainly serves fried chicken. But for those looking for an alternative they still offer vegetable, tofu/tempe and fish dishes to choose from.

6. Iga Bakar Si Jangkung

Another spot to try out for more lamb-based dishes in Bandung is Iga Bakar Si Jangkung.

Apart from their signature dish, the sop kambing (lamb soup), nasi goreng kambing (fried rice with lamb) and sop bakar are a few other mention-worthy dishes to try out! Sop bakar translated literally means “burnt soup” but what makes the name unique is in the way the dish is prepared. A bowl filled with all the goodness that is going be served is heated up over a flame until the contents are hot and is then served immediately to you?

Batagor Kingsley

Located directly in front of Click Square Mall, head over to Batagor Kingsley for a quick bite! Batagor is the abbreviation of bakso tauhu goreng (literally translated into fried meatballs). It is mainly made up of fish instead of meat - more closely resembling a fried fish dumpling.

The snack is the ultimate texture overload for your taste buds! The batagor here is wrapped with tofu and served under a serving of sweet and spicy peanut sauce. The warm, soft texture of the fish complements nicely with the crunchy peanut sauce that comes together with every bite?
