Cafe Burangrang - Bandung, Indonesia

Flattened chicken rice combo- served with tofu, tempeh, crackers and chili sambal
Café Burangrang is one of the three restaurants in Dusun Bambu. It has more of a café concept with comfortable chairs to half lying down to enjoy the view and weather. The menu was small with most of them being rice combo. So we ended up ordering rice combo with fried chicken (ayam kalasan); rice wrapped in banana leaf (nasi timbel); rice combo with flattened chicken (ayam penyet).

One side of the café looked down to the man made lake below which housed the Purbasari restaurant. Very pretty view and one could rent boat to paddle around the lake. One side of the lake has a dock for photos taking. But we didn't go down since it was a lot of people and drizzling.

While waiting for our order, rain started coming down strong with cool breeze. was actually pretty nice and we all enjoyed the cooler weather. The temperature that day was only around 68F or 20C.

Kalasan style fried chicken rice combo with crispy tempeh, crackers and salad greens

The food came pretty quick and was surprisingly good. I wasn't expecting too much because based on experience some restaurants with good view normally sells the view and not the food. But Café Burangrang did not disappoint. The sambal was pretty spicy and the chicken was tender and moist. Each of the order came with a complete meal of carb (rice), protein (chicken/tofu/tempeh), veggie (cucumber, lettuce, green bean). The ayam kalasan (sweet fried chicken) combo came with rice, sambal, crispy tempeh, crackers and veggie. The ayam penyet combo (flattened chicken) came with rice, cracker, veggie, braised tofu and tempeh. The price range IDR 60k-IDR70k. (USD 4.60-USD 5.40).
