When you go to Bangkok

Actually, this trip was happened two years ago and some of the story I already wrote it in my (other) personal blog-which is now in half hiatus mode-in here. The journey was very memorable for us and we are looking forward to come to this city again. Here are the place you must visit when you go to Bangkok:

Khao San Road

I kind of forget about the name of the place, but I will just write the description that I wrote before in my (other) blog.

Crepes & Co.

Basically, this is one of the best crepes I (We) ever had, the place kind of memorable and thanks to Novin for taking us there.

If you come to Bali, you go to Rock Bar, but when you go to Bangkok then Sirocco it is. Just go to the area, the view is stunning and definitely one of fantastic experience.

Beef Gravy for California Style Burrito
Inspired by the constant bombardment of great cuisines from all over the world in our cable TV channel, we decided to cook ourselves some of the dishes that presented there. Alia choose USA as her inspiration, recreating their popular Mac & Cheese dish, while I choose the fusion cooking of Mexican/ USA to recreate the California Style Burrito dish with a twist of my personal Beef Gravy sauce.


Pempek 10 Ulu Pak Anang on Rainy Day

Yesterday, while driving home from campus, we decided to stop by to have some something to eat. It was rainy, so we have the option to go eat baso tahu or pempek. But along the way, we finally decided to eat pempek. Without second thought we stroll directly to our new favorite pempek spot: Pempek 10 Ulu pak Anang. The vendor is located at jalan Veteran, Bandung, and you might missed it if you are driving in a hurry because of their small shop.
Although the vendor is small, but you can always see people come and drop by to taste their pempek. We don't blame them. The taste of their pempek is very good, and we suggest that this is because they use plenty of fresh fish as their main ingredients. Their price is also not quite expensive. For two portion of hearty pempek + drink costs us around Rp 50.000,- (US$ 6). So the next time you find yourself craving for pempek in Bandung, especially in a rainy day, then you can stop by at Pempek 10 Ulu pak Anang.
