Eat and meet


Warungs, kaki limas and rumah makans are available absolutely everywhere in Bandung and at night you will not walk past a single street corner without seeing someone selling local food. This food is generally very delicious, but relies heavily on frying and many visitors will want to mix up their eating habits to avoid oil overload. During the day, options along most streets are limited to snack foods such as gorengan, a word used to describe a variety of fried tasty treats. More substantial meals are best found in food courts attached to malls or in standalone fixed restaurants.
