[Bandung] Lunch on the Hills

6:42 PM

So a year ago, my cousin (Hana) and I went to Bandung to visit our cousin (Aghna). Other than visiting Aghna, we also want to do a quick vacation in between our busy routines. One of the places that we visit was this café named Café D’Pakar which located high above the Bandung city. And yes, I was referencing to my current favorite song 'Castle on The Hill' by Ed Sheeran :D

The access to this place was quite difficult due to the high slope degree. Not to mention Hana, who was driving the car, is a bit newbie driver. I hold on to the edge of my seat all the way up, LOL! Even though the access was difficult, the view that this place offer was breathtaking. They got this beautiful hills and valley view, trees all over the place and of course fresh air! Now tell me who doesn’t love that?

There is an entrance fee of IDR 25.000 per person to enter the café. However this entrance fee can be redeemed with food and drinks with the same price. I think it is more like a minimum order fee and maybe they are avoiding people who came just to take pictures without ordering anything.

All of the café area was outdoor. Most of the tables don’t have canopy above them, so prepare yourself if it’s raining all of a sudden. The tables are spread down the hills and almost every tables is facing the valley. We ordered some Nasi Bakar and Ice Tea for our lunch that day. The Nasi Bakar consist of yellowish rice and chopped chicken. There was also a few slices of cucumber and a complementary kerupuk (crackers). I quite like the Nasi Bakar, however it was a bit too spicy that I end up not finishing it.

I personally love and recommend this place to everyone whose planning to go to Bandung in near future. Although, please note that since the place was quite big and outdoor, it is a bit hard to call the waitress. It also took a while for our food to come. Probably because our tables was a bit far from the main building (where the kitchen is located). But it was still worth the view.
