[HOTEL] Padma Hotel Bandung – Premier Suite Room – Part Two

May 5th, 2017 – May 6th, 2017

continuing our staycation at Padma Hotel Bandung.


We’re so lucky to get a chance to have dinner. It’s really a great privilege for us. After the afternoon tea, we managed to have some rest first. So, before we overslept, I forced my hubby to get ready for dinner hahaha.. And we loved the dinner. Fortunately, it’s barbeque night yaaaaaay.

After a great night sleep, we finally had to wake up with no enthusiasm for anything. We just wanna go back to sleep again. I’ve never had a bed that so possessive to me LOL. But.. we’re hungry! So we really had to wake up to reach the restaurant to have our breakfast.

Delicious food, especially the siomay bandung. My favourite. Well, actually, all of the food in the restaurant were delightful. We couldn’t get enough of those food. LOL. We thought it’s really worth every single bite.

IMG_7434 IMG_7446 IMG_7435 IMG_7447

Again, thank you Padma Bandung for the hospitality. It’s really hard for us to say goodbye, but we had to check-out. See you when I see you.

OMG! The room is very beautiful. It’s huge, spacious. We’re very happy, finally could stay at this premier suite. This was our second stay there. Padma Bandung is one of the gorgeous hotels in Bandung. I was amazed with the view from the room. The sofa was very comfortable. The bed was absolutely satisfying. Snug as a bug in a rug. And the bathroom was crazy! So big and cozy.

Always loved afternoon tea there with a breathtaking view. Delicious snacks and drinks. We really had a great time during the time. The afternoon tea is from 15:30 to 17:00. But you still can sit there after 17:00 if you still wanna enjoy the view.

[BANDUNG] Gormeteria at Pasir Kaliki Bandung

May 7th, 2017. Before we went home to Jakarta, we dropped in to another new place in Bandung. Gormeteria is a new hype, I guess. I saw their photos everywhere in foodies’ Instagram accounts. At first, I didn’t think I can make it since it’s already Sunday, and we had to go back to Jakarta. But then my hubby made the time for me to visit it for lunch. Yaaaay..


Located on the roadside of Pasir Kaliki, it’s very easy to find the place. When we arrived, lucky us, there’s still parking lot inside. To find the dining area, we should go to level 2. The place is very spacious. Divided into 3 areas. From the stairs, to the right is outdoor area. Coffee bar area in the middle. And to the left is dining area. The dining area is also divided into different themes. Let me show you around through my photos below, and enjoy the simple review.

Original Ice Tea 12k

Gormeteria house blend tea


Orange Juice 25k

Fresh squeezed orange juice

It’s a really fresh orange juice. My hubby loved it.


Ochazuke 98k

Seared salmon over rice poured with aromatic green tea soup

Adorable presentation. You have to pour the aromatic green tea soup to the salmon over rice. I thought it must be weird, but turned out it’s really good. Light flavour with adorable texture. The salmon was tender. The character of the rice was also perfect. Super recommended.

Mocha Cake 33k

A slice of old school mocca cake with mocca butter cream

I saw this one on the display at the coffee bar. So I ordered one slice. It was fantastic! I really loved the cake. The texture was fluffy and soft. Generous mocca butter cream. I just hope they sprinkled the top with more chocolate rice.

IMG_7575 IMG_7586 IMG_7585 IMG_7587

Love the place and love the food. Definitely a keeper.

[BANDUNG] Ambrogio Patisserie at Citarum Bandung

May 6th, 2017. It’s the second day in Bandung. After we checked out from the first hotel, we moved to the second one. Then, we talked about lunch. We’re so hungry hahaha.. I asked hubby whether we had lunch in hotel or we went to another new place. And we decided to go to Ambrogio. Yaaaay. Hope it will be as good as those reviews on the blogs.


Located on a roadside of Banda street, Ambrogio has become one happening place in Bandung. Actually when we arrived, it’s really hard to find parking lot, so we had to park beside the cafe. When I came in, it was really crowded. The person in front escorted us to a table. It’s near the fish pond. Lovely. They have smoking area, dining area, garden area, fish pond area, hahaha lots of area. And they have a very Instagramable corner. No wonder it’s always full ya.. hahaha.. By the way, my cousin told me that it’s the same group with Prima Rasa. Hmm.. must be good, right?

Ice Hazelnut Latte 28k

Love the ice hazelnut latte. It was sweet and less coffee, absolutely. Rich texture with non acidic flavour. Hooraaaay.


Ice Lemon Tea 25k


Japanese Fried Rice 42k

Japanese style fried rice served with teriyaki brisket

Remember, we’re hungry. That’s why I ordered rice dish hahaha. And my choice fell on this japanese style fried rice, since it looked appetizing. The texture of the rice was perfect. And I also loved the teriyaki brisket. Tender and juicy with an easy-to-chew texture. Earlier there, I had a bad response from one of the servers there, when I wanted to move to a bigger table. Well, thanks to their food, it brought back my good mood again. It was generous portion! Super recommended! Psst, I took away half of the portion hahahaha.. Too full!

IMG_7493 IMG_7495

Char Kway Tiaw 35k

Saute flat rice noodle with chicken & mix of vegetables

It’s my hubby’s order. It’s spicy! Annoying, right? He doesn’t like spicy food. And we’ve already told the server to tell the kitchen, to make it no spicy. When it came to our table, it was spicy with chili all over the dish. Hmm.. I whispered to myself, ‘Oh man! You’re in big trouble!’ Hahaha.. That’s why I finally took away the kway tiaw. “I will finish it later at hotel.”

IMG_7492 IMG_7494

Definitely will be back to try their desserts and pastries. Wait for us!

[BANDUNG] Barleu Fine Coffee and Light Meals at Cihapit Bandung

May 5th, 2017. After 2 coffee shops, it’s time for the 3rd hahaha. Actually, I heard about this one from Natasha. It’s her friend’s coffee shop. But when I arrived there, the owner was in Jakarta LOL. Oh and the place called Barleu. Small area with outdoor and indoor space. Nice one.


It’s a new coffee shop. But it’s already hype. There’re a lot of people there. A lot of moms there. They were very happy there hahaha.. So I had to sit on the back area because there’s no tables at the indoor area. It’s very small, like I said before.

IMG_7309 IMG_7313 IMG_7312 IMG_7314 IMG_7315 IMG_7311 IMG_7316 IMG_7317 IMG_7319 IMG_7320 IMG_7321 IMG_7322 IMG_7310

Lemon Tea 22k


Hazelnut Latte 28k

Delicious. Not too coffee, not too chocolate. Rich texture with delightful flavour.


Bala Bala (3pcs) 15k

My hubby loved it. He ate all of them LOL. Tasted so good, he said. 🙂 Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside. My complaint was it’s taking too long for them to cook those bala bala. Lucky them, it’s THAT good. If not, I think I will send them a complaint letter hahahaha..

IMG_7325 IMG_7326

Siomay (2 pcs) 20k

Another complaint for them. They forgot to prepare the siomay. And when I wanted to ask them, “Where’s my siomay?!?!?!” those 2 siomays arrived. They said sorry for the wait. Another lucky for them. The Siomays were very delicious! If I wasn’t in a hurry, I think I will order another portion.  Yes, super recommended.

IMG_7327 IMG_7328

Good job Barleu. We will be back for more food. Wait for us!
