From Time Out Abu Dhabi Eating Out 2010

Curiosity yields a few hidden gems to the culinary adventurer willing to take the time to explore the city’s backstreets. Bandung is certainly the sort of place you happen upon by chance, nestled deep amongst the scruffy cafeterias of Tourist Club Area, an anonymous eatery in a shabby building. But a sizable crowd is always a good pointer to a diamond in the rough and this likeable Indonesian restaurant is reliably packed, particularly on a Friday afternoon. Taste-wise, Indonesian and Thai cooking bear a few similarities.

The presence of the delicious chicken satay on the menu – skewers of grilled meat stacked like Lincoln Logs and smothered in a thick peanut sauce – is a fair giveaway. But delve a little further and you’ll discover more specialist dishes like the delicious nasi goreng – fried rice with prawns, chicken, and a fluffy omelette on the side. Liven it up with a few scoops of their homemade chilli paste, but eat carefully, though, dishes such as the mie ayam, turmeric seasoned chicken and vegetables, do tend to have hidden bones. We warned you.
