For the past decade, Bandung has become a well-known culinary tourism destination in West Java. The city gets crowded every weekend because people from nearby cities come to hang out in cafes and such. It’s a heaven for food lovers. So it was no surprise that during the Independence Day weekend, there were two culinary festivals held in Bandung: Summer Food Festival and Keuken 2016. We happened to go to both festivals, but unfortunately we were having too much fun that we only took several pictures :p
Summer Food Festival was held in the city hall on Saturday, 20 August. It was dubbed as a South American culinary festival, but there was no South American food actually. There were only booths promoting each country’s tourism programme. It was a shame because we actually came to taste South American food. We ended up buying the usual festival food (potatoes, coffee, etc.)
This was the seventh Keuken, but or third time coming there (read about Keuken #4 here and Keuken #6 here). Keuken has never ceased to amaze us. We always love going to Keuken because there’s always something new to try. This time, we tried quesadilla (which was good) and wagyu with buttered rice (which was VERY GOOD). Our last year’s favourite was available too, so we bought it again.
So sorry for the very low-quality photos. We didn’t bring a camera so each picture was taken by using our phones’ camera. Also, we came to Keuken at around sunset so the lighting was bad too. I swear I’m still going to try to be a good blogger who carries a good camera everywhere. Haha…
