I usually eat Nasi bakar in the place behind of Gedung sate Bandung.
NASI GORENG ( Fried Rice)
Nasi goreng is the most popular Indonesian cuisine in the world, because every time I traveled to another countries people have already familiar, even in the local restaurant outside Indonesia. Usually Indonesian people eat nasi goreng for breakfast. However, I think it’s completely weird for western people to eat rice for breakfast because one time I enjoyed nasi goreng for breakfast and my flatmate in Oslo think that I am crazy.
Nasi goreng’s price is differ depending on the restaurant usually it costs around USD 1-2 or more than that if you choose luxury restaurant. however if you want to buy nasi goreng, it’s recommended to buy Nasi goreng in the street, trust me, it’s much cheaper and the most important thing is DELICIOUS
