On 31st of December, ElsaSisters went to Bandung with our parents. We went there around 3 in the morning and arrived there at 5 in the morning. We stayed for a night at Garden Permata Hotel. On the last day of our trip, we ate lunch ate Origin House and Kitchen. Lil sis browse about nice place to eat at Bandung and found this place, which people says that it’s quite good. When we first arrived at this place, we were like “Why it’s so dark? Is it closed? But when we called them before, they said they’re open…”. We arrived there around 1 PM and they hadn’t turned on any light on their big store. But, the door there was opened, so we enter the place. Origin House and Kitchen has 3 different section on their big store. The first section is a health store. When you first enter their store, you will find this health store. They sell many things that’re connected with healthiness, such as brown rice, almond, sunflower seeds, and you name it. The second section is their mini IKEA store. Beside foods, they sell many cute things here. Look at what lilsis found there.
The third section is their bakery and restaurant. It is super cozy and comfortable. At first, we thought that their restaurant will be like normal restaurant out there. But we were really really wrong. The restaurant itself has 2 floors and the second floor only has 2 or 3 table. The first floor has many comfortable sofas and colorful chairs. When you first enter the restaurant, you will see this comfortable sofa that’s located in front of a white stairs. We thought, they has eco-friendly concept on their restaurant. When you enter the restaurant, you will see plants and vines on the wall on your left, right, and in front of you. They also has about 2 little birds there. Super pretty ♥
For the food itself, Origin offer us western and Asian foods (this include Indonesian foods). All of them taste quite nice, and the service was super good.
Mushy mushroom soup, 43k
This is creamy mushroom that is served with garlic bread and some sauteed mushroom. It’s quite good, but we won’t really recommend it for you who don’t like / hate mushroom, because it really taste like mushroom. The garlic bread is a good companion to eat this. Its flavor blend well with the mushroom soup taste.
Fish and Chips, 54k
It’s just a usual deep fried dori fish with potato wedges. Too bad that it consist more potato wedges than dori. But the potato wedges were nice and crispy. Hope they will increase the dori fish portion 🙂
Farfalle au Gratin, 47k
This dish contains farfalle, zucchini, creamy sauce, and melted mozzarella. It’s a little bit flavorless. All we can taste was the tomatoes. The pasta itself was cooked al dente. We hope they will develop this dish flavor.
Sop Pindang Iga, 69k
This is a spiced spare ribs soup with organic steam rice and condiments. It taste pretty good and they had lots (We mean this) of ribs inside the soup. Soto Betawi, 39k It’s a clear beef soup that’s served with vegetables and steam rice and cracker. The taste was quite nice, but there were too much beans >.< There was a little problem on this dish, and when we told the waiter, they generously asked us if we want to change it with a new one. But, because we had eaten the dish, we refuse it nicely. And you know what, they said that they will compensate us by giving us discount!! Oh thank you for the nice service Origin!
Apple Cake slice, 33k
This is to-die-for! The cake has nice texture and the caramelized nuts give a super nice sensation. It’s not too sweet and not forgetting the cream cheese buttercream that make this dessert super lovable. Oh yes! The cake was studded with some raisins too! Super recommended for all of you!
Overall, we quite enjoyed our lunch there. But, the foods are a little bit pricey for students. Anyway, we loved the interior design, their service and fast response for a small problem. Thank you for a nice lunch Origin!
