[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.

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!

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.”

[BANDUNG] Sejiwa Coffee at Progo Bandung

May 5th, 2017. I planned to come to Bandung since beginning of the year, I think. But, we just had time at the beginning of May. It’s Friday. Beautiful day. Too bad, traffic jam! 3 freaking hours! Huft. Poor hubby. But, the show must go on. We were so excited about our cafe hopping in Bandung. Always. This time we visited Sejiwa first.

I heard that everybody talked about this place, and it made me very curious. When I came, I saw a spacious place, dominated with white colour. 2 levels building. They used upstairs for smoking area. By the way, they have those funny murals. Most of them are about wolf and red riding hood, I think. Hahaha.. I asked the people there about the murals, and they had no idea. Maybe the owner will read my blog and tell me why they chose wolf and red riding hood. 🙂 Well, let me show you around through my simple review below.

Flat White 26k

As usual, I told the barista that I cannot drink coffee, but I love coffee. So, that’s why they made it very very light. And, it’s too light for me hahahaha but that’s totally fine. Then I put a little brown sugar, and it’s better for my palate.

Grilled Short Ribs W/ Garlic Rice 65k

grilled marinated short rib – garlic butter fried rice – king oyster pakchoy

Love the texture of the grilled short rib. Tender and juicy with sweet flavour. Well, for me, it’s too sweet. If you like sweet ribs, that’s fine. But if you prefer more savoury, maybe you can tell them to make it less sweet. The butter rice was delightful. Fragrant with buttery texture. Love it. Quite recommended.

Lemon Pavlova 35k

My hubby was a fan of lemon. Lemon tea, lemon squash, chicken lemon, you named it. So when I had to choose from the cake rack, I chose lemon pavlova. The texture was moist and soft. The lemon was not really strong, but enough to make my hubby happy. Melt-in-your-mouth.
