Blast from the Past: Ponyo Sundanese Restaurant

It is been gosh-quite-a-long-time since we ate in Ponyo restaurant. Every time someone mentioned about this restaurant, our mind is suddenly travel for more than 50 kilometers to the area between Cianjur and Puncak area, where their most famous restaurant branch was once one of the main attraction of our trip from Bandung to Jakarta before the creation of Padalarang-Cikampek toll road.

In Bandung somewhat we already being bombarded with new restaurants, Sundanese and other, making old face became unfamiliar.

Until today...

Out of nowhere, we suddenly anonymously decided to eat in Ponyo. Ponyo is a restaurant which holding the old tradition of Sundanese restaurant. There are only few restaurant which serves food such as this place. The one that comes in mind is Ampera, Kedai Mangga, and Bumbu Desa which uses their method of serving.

What they do is that they display all of the food that we can select using the thong. All of the food displayed are half cooked, and after you select them, they would happily cooked them to perfection.

As today we ate a little bit late, a lot of items are being ordered by us. Grilled chicken, gepuk (fried meat), fried tofu, fried tempe, sauteed mushroom, perkedel jagung (corn fritters) and Kerupuk is on our menu. For beverages without thinking twice I ordered their Es Campur.

All of the sudden all good memories of driving trip through Puncak area, enjoying the great weather of Puncak, shopping for local snacks in Cianjur, and facing the traffic in Ciawi (yes, it is a great memory, because when we are kids we liked to make up games when facing traffic jam) coming to mind.

Hmmm... What a beautiful memories.
