Who : Yuna
Fresh from releasing a new album, 'Terukir Di Bintang', specially written for her Malaysian fans and currently making waves in the US, Yuna is definitely on the up and 2012 is looking increasingly likely to be her year. Having to adapt to a jet-setting lifestyle for almost two years after inking a deal with a renowned record label in the USA has forced her to travel back and forth from Malaysia, but the talented songstress, who will be releasing her first album under her US-based label in March, was back home as we sat down at her favourite Indonesian restaurant, Dapoer Bandoeng, recently.
Tucked nicely within the Kelana Jaya area in Petaling Jaya, Dapoer Bandoeng is definitely a hidden gem among a host of Indonesian restaurants in the Klang Valley. A flip through the pages of the menu reveals a very extensive list of Indonesian delicacies. Yuna said: "I found out about this place from my boyfriend, who brought me here after he discovered the place while hosting his food quest TV show. He loved it so much that he just kept coming back for more. We both love Indonesian food, so one day we decided to have lunch here and I went 'Wow, this is really nice!'" She added, "What I like about Dapoer Bandoeng is that the place is never too crowded, it's comfortable and the ambience is nice".
Dapoer Bandoeng opened its doors to the public in June 2010 and has been steadily gaining reputation as one of the best-kept secrets in Kelana Jaya. Founded by Intan Juliana, who said: "We try to make the food as authentically Indonesian as possible. Our cooks are professionally-trained Indonesians whom we brought over to Malaysia from Bandung, while all our recipes are homemade."
Yuna ordered the 'Nasi Ayam Penyet' along with a 'Sup Bakso', complemented by a glass of Teh Botol Sosro (the mother of all Teh O Ais, according to Yuna). As a fan of Ayam Penyet, Yuna found Dapoer Bandoeng's to be the best by far. Fried tofu and tempe are served on the side while the chicken is smothered with original super-spicy Indonesian chilli to give the dish an extra oomph. She also declared herself as a fan of Bakso after she tried it once while on a trip to Bandung. Served with 'Pangsit', the bakso was bursting with flavours.
As for our dessert, Intan recommended us to try out the 'Es Pisang Ijo'. Sweet and refreshing, it consisted of bananas that were covered in pandan and chocolate sauce served in ice syrup. What a way to sweeten your taste buds after they've been bombarded by lip-smacking Indonesian dishes.
With our lunch appointment done, Yuna shared about what she was going to do next. "I'll be flying back to the States very soon and prepare for the album launch in March. Just getting things done with the promotional side of things and making sure that the album's good to go for release. It's going to be pretty hectic but hopefully everything will turn out okay!"
When she flies back to Malaysia, you can be sure that Dapoer Bandoeng will again be graced by her presence. While she's away, though, I think I will be warming her seat here at Dapoer Bandoeng as I will certainly be coming back here to satisfy my hunger for authentic Indonesian food.Full content generated by Get Full RSS.
