On June 2011, while waiting for Alia at the Airport Husein Sastranegara, I waited at this sandwich and tea vendor outside in the food court.
Their sandwich taste is OK, but the tea is extraordinary, as Walini have become one of our favorite local tea brand in Indonesia.

Pan Fried Sausage & Cranberry Sandwich (Close Up)
Since we have a lot of leftover from our last Saturday cooking frenzy, I decided to have good breakfast (compared with my regular coffee & cheese sandwich breakfast). After I rummaging the refrigerator I found sausages there. So the Pan Fried Sausage & Cranberry Sandwich is born. The taste is great, because we got the savory taste of Sausage and Cheese, but at the same time we have the sweetness of the Cranberry.
I will definitely create this sandwich again, as this one is quickly become one of my favorite food.

The Famous Tahu Susu in Lembang

Instruction how to made tahu susu
The main ingredients of tahu
I have ever mentioned about tahu susu once, Tahu Susu Cihanjuang, the one Aswin and I often enjoy, but this one maybe the most famous tahu susu in Bandung surrounding area. Maybe you have visit this place once or maybe never. The place that sell tahu susu Lembang, of course, is located in Lembang. It used to be gas station and turn into this tourism area called "Tahu Lembang" with big capital letter on its front facade.

Actually, the place short kind of pujasera with style. It has playground for kids, kiosk and stalls for foods, also common eating area, but not all the foods in here have to be related with tahu, there are Sundanese restaurant, bakso, and grilled sausage. The interesting part of the place, there is tahu susu factory that you can see how tahu susu is made.

The ingredients of tahu susu are soy bean, milk, butter, salt, garlic, cumin, and water.The tahu susu have a distinctive texture, it is softer than the usual tahu and also taste awesome. There is two kind of tahu, the white and yellow one, people usually like the yellow one because the color more appealing and you don't have to fry it long just like the white one.
