BANDUNG: BEEF NOODLE SOUP

Knocks out the best bowl of it in the area, so join the locals and make a beeline for their version, which comes in mismatched china bowls and served up with big smiles.

I love Bandung it’s like a second home for me as my wife’s family lives there, and mie kocok is like honey to bee for my wife she love the stuff. 

So over time I have had to love as well, (unconditionally ) one of the thing that has rubbed of on me is her love for bandung street food some between Chinese and local Sundanese cuisines have merged together and there you have Bandung street food.

Mie kocok is traditional with egg noodle beef skin small amount of beef trimmings from the beef bones that have slowly been simmering in pot for 5hrs to produce this amazing clearing shiny broth with lots of bean sprouts and Asian celery.

BANDUNG: MARINATED BRAISED BEEF RIBS

Pak Jangkung is the man behind the meat here. He’s someone that personifies the spirit of Sunda.

Beginning his career in the hotel industry in Bali, he started out with the ripper of recipe for ribs, but it was more Jogja-style than Sundanese. He juiced it up a little and it was so good that a warung in Bandung was born off the back of it. 

Soon you couldn’t get a seat, let alone a table, at his little rib shack, so he did what anyone with a sell-out winning dish might do: he opened a second warung. And then third. Thousands of plates later, he’s now at the helm of his own mini-rib empire in Bandung.

The place is a little dark, there’s not a spare seat in sight. But if the locals will brave a monsoonal downpour to eat the food, you know you’re in the right place. The best part is that the air is filled with one of favourite smells: the heady scent of barbequing meat.

Served in big clay bowls, the iga bakar (braised short ribs) arrives sizzling hot, sauce spitting. It’s falling-off-the-bone, finger-licking good.

The ribs are dark and caramelised, with the cumin-spiked sweet soy sauce providing the perfect sticky foil to the white pepper and chilli kick.

The happy silence of eating something so good that conversation is forgotten in favour of the food. The ribs disappear in minutes.
