Holiday In Bandung Part III

Well, I still have a lot of photos of my trip to Bandung to share with you all. My trip to Bandung last month was more of a food hunting trip or in Indonesian language 'berwisata kuliner'. Bandung is just the right place for food hunting trip as it has a lot of quality halal eateries and bakeries.

My husband is a huge fan of Oriental food and loves Japanese food especially Sushi .We were grateful that it is easy to find halal sushi in Bandung and we did try sushi at two eateries. The first one is called 'Sushi Alley' at Jalan Riau. 'Sushi Alley' is just next to the popular 'Formen' factory outlet. I love the relaxing atmosphere at Sushi Alley where they have the Japanese style low tables with cushions to sit on. Under the tables they have stones for foot reflexology. It was just the right place for me to relax and feed my hungry stomach.

Sushi Alley in Jalan Riau

They have long table and high chairs a'la taverns. Nice wooden chairs..

Mmm..not bad at all .

I am happy as the plate is empty....In Japan, it is considered good manners to empty your dishes to the last grain..

I decided to take away some sushi cause I was still hungry . I especially love fish eggs.

Later that night, we had dinner at a Japanese restaurant which is only a walking distance from our hotel. The restaurant, "Torigen" is at Jalan Setiabudi next to Setiabudi Supermarket. The restaurant owner is a Japanese who has been living in Indonesia for 19 years. As we entered the restaurant, we were greeted by the restaurant owner himself. He handed us a brochure of Fukuoka City, his hometown in Japan. He then told us more about Fukuoka City which is the biggest city in Kyushu Island in Japan.

Some of the souvenirs on display or maybe for sale..

The sushi at Torigen. We asked for Indonesian sweet soy sauce to suit our Malaysian taste bud and the soy sauce is so good.

The bartender is obviously a Japanese. The restaurant is also frequented by the Japanese and Koreans.
At Torigen, I really felt like I was in Japan. It is a really authentic Japanese restaurant with pure taste of Japanese food and also a place for you to learn the Japanese culture. The waiter and waitresses are trained to be very efficient, polite and attentive just like in Japan. It is really a place where satisfaction is guaranteed.
