Bandung has switched over to festival mode last Sunday as the charming Keuken finally rolls back into the region. This annual one-day foodie fiesta took place at City Hall, hence the theme “City Hall Fairground“, and with the #GoodFestival campaign that contribute in creating a good town festival by building awareness of keeping the environment clean, for example to bring your own food container and using public transportation or bike, made that day positively spinning with aceness.
Flicking through the events is a wee bit overwhelming, so we just head along with an empty tum and going for a wander. We’re chuffed to try the scrumptious treats that many tenants has to offer, like AyamAyaman.com, Onigiri Futago, Batagor Hanimun, etc. We’re excited to check out the highlight booths, especially Loobie Lobster, where they served some finger-lickin grilled lobster. With bands like Vincent Vega, L’Alphalpha, Spring Summer, etc providing the weekend’s toe-tapping soundtrack from the music stage, but the one act we’re most looking forward to seeing is Bedchamber. The kitchen stage providing free yummy delights from Qisthas, Yayi x Tara (Ayshealthyascanbe), Chef Afit & Lucy Wiryono, etc along with DJ performances by Radit & Citra, Dimas Ario, Papermoon Records, etc.
The best part would be the playground area and its main attraction, the ferris wheel which glimmers at night. It was so lovely. Sweet tunes, lazy wandering, yummy foods and a bit of cute-part-of-the-town-exploring makes a perfect weekend time.

We’re super stoked to be there at the event again last Sunday. It was sunny all day, the perfect kind of setting for a festive times. The guys from House The House had a change of scene and despite of street, for Keuken #4 The Jolly Camaraderie, they took over one day at an unused train warehouse, at Gudang Persediaan PT KAI Cikudapateuh Bandung, from 8 am till 10 pm.
There are heaps of foods, drinks, and anything edibles stands lined-up, offering some serious delights. We couldn’t decided which one to try first, because they’re all so mouthwateringly tempting. And we’re finally get a chance to see Jirapah on stage. Then DJ Bergas made some you-will-move-your-head-unconsciously-up-and-down-to-the-beats tunes while we nibbled on some freebie bites from chefs and cooks at Kitchen Stage. We can’t say no to a free food really, especially when it’s so damn (pardon our word) tasty. And as the night grew closer, the crowds became packed with people looking for a good time with company. Thus, we’ve had a ridiculously good time there, noon till dawn.
If you by any chance missed the event, we’re pretty excited to give you a little snapshot of all the festivity. Until then, see you at Keuken #5!
more food, food, food, err… I mean photos after the jump!

It’s tomorrow! The event we all been anticipated for months now is finally here. We’re so overly excited about this. Are you?
Below are some of the snaps from Keuken #4 The Jolly Camaraderie’s press conference at Nanny’s Pavillon Setiabudi Bandung yesterday. Chef Odie Djamil, Meizan D. Nataadiningrat from House The House, Adinda Wijaya Putri from Keuken and Imee Putri from Sunlight, gave us a little brief about all the what, why, when, where, who, and how, oh and also a lil’ performances by the three common household items and their dilemma which is quite funny, probably because of their weird uncoordinated hands movement towards each other, and all the things that you should and need to anticipated about the upcoming event.
See you there!
A few weeks to go for the most anticipated fourth, yet we could still relieved the merriness of the previous Keuken. We experienced a day when the usual street shut down from vehicular traffic and all the stands and stalls offering every delicacy imaginable and the live cooking stage you could drooled just from taking a single whiff, with a day-long live entertainment spilled onto the sidewalks from the earliest morning till down. The crowds were tremendous, even the sudden rain in the afternoon couldn’t stop people from pouring down all the stands available. It’s hard to say no for delicious food, really. Believe us, we tried.
Below are some of the pictures of Keuken #2, The Flavorsome Intimacy. You can see the past line-up here. In the meantime, we’re preparing something special for Keuken #4. Can’t wait to share them all with you :)
