When we went to Lembang, we visited Kampung Daun restaurant for lunch. Kampung Daun is a restaurant offers own private hut giving sense of privacy and intimacy with amazing view of natural surroundings. Each hut is made from natural materials, set up in a rainforest setting together with running streams of waterfall which give calm and relaxing feeling for visitors.
In each hut, Kampung Daun provided “Kentongan” (aka wooden slit drum) for visitors to call the waitress. What a unique and traditional way of communication used in Kampung Daun.
We ordered three Indonesian foods for our lunch:
1. Kampung Daun Fried Rice
Fried Rice is a popular food in Indonesia and this time, the dish was decorated interestingly by Kampung Daun. They served the Fried Rice, egg, satay, chili and cracker in each bowl which makes the whole dish looks interesting and appealing to eat. For the taste, unfortunately, it’s nothing exciting and the taste is not extraordinary.
Batagor is Sundanese Indonesian fried fish dumplings usually served with peanut sauce. It is traditionally made from tenggiri (wahoo) fish meat. Just like siomay, other complements to batagor are steamed cabbage, potatoes, bitter gourd and tofu. Batagor is cut into bite size pieces and topped with peanut sauce, sweet soy sauce, chili sauce and a dash of lime juice.
The appearance of the dish is interesting and the taste is also good, although not so special.
3. Indonesian Beef Ball Soup (aka Bakso)
Bakso is also one of popular street food in Indonesia. It’s quite simple dish but at Kampung Daun, the soup is delicious and tasty. The beef ball is also having nice taste, perfectly eaten with white rice and Indonesian chili.
In overall, we really enjoyed our lunch at Kampung Daun. It’s well spend lunch at a private hut while enjoying calm and relax rainforest and waterfall.
