Food streets at night
Jalan Gardujati, Bandung
Jalan Gardujati is located within walking distance of the train station which is convenient if you're staying close by and want to check out Bandung street food at night between 18:00 and 22:00.
Starting 150 metres to the south of the train line, a wide range of food stalls offer local foods such as wedang ronde (glutinous rice ball with ginger soup), kuo tie (Chinese-style fried dumplings) and famous frog dishes, for which a cast iron stomach may be required. Of course, the ubiquitous nasi goreng, martabak and bakso are also on offer. Walking a further 200 metres south along Jalan Gardujati away from the train line and past Jalan Jenderal Sudirman, you will eventually reach Jalan Cibadak, another food street that comes alive in the evening. A mixture of Indonesian and Chinese foods are served here and if you're keen to sample some of the local snacks, bola ubi (cassava balls), martabak and es teler are all worth a try. Both of these places are fantastic spots to enjoy the atmosphere of a local night-time food market while having a cheap feed.
