Indonesia's Beautiful Food City

Bandung, Indonesia

For an insider view of the world’s most beautiful and exciting travel destinations, F&W asked some of our favorite online photographers to show us their cities.

Indonesia-based Instagram star Putri Anindya captivates more than 200,000 followers with dreamy, near-spiritual landscapes shot with an SLR camera or iPhone (she loves the VSCO app for filters and editing). Anindya took F&W on a photo tour of Bandung, the breathtaking West Java capital and a destination for food-obsessed tourists from Jakarta and around the world. Here, the local shares where to eat in Bandung right now and tips for aspiring photographers.

Perfect Bandung restaurant. Boemi Joglo. Set high up in the hills north of Bandung, this place has beautiful Indonesian architecture. I really like the setting and of course the food. My favorite meals here are Maranggi Satay (skewers of beef marinated in sweet and spicy soy sauce) and Nasi Liwet Ayam Jamur, which is Boemi Joglo’s specialty: rice cooked in coconut milk and chicken broth with spicy condiments. tripadvisor.com

Favorite Bandung coffee shop. Selasar Sunaryo Cafe, which is also located in the hills. It's open and quiet with a mesmerizing view of Bandung City. It was built as a gallery so you can also immerse yourself in various art projects while having a 
cup of coffee. selasarsunaryo.com



Best Bandung shopping. Paris Van Java. It’s unlike other malls in Indonesia because a big part of it is open air. You can feel the cool Bandung breeze while doing so many things like dining, shopping or catching a movie. paris-van-java.com

Ultimate Bandung souvenir. Bandung is very well known as a culinary haven. My favorite souvenir would be fine pastries like pisang molen (banana fried in a batter made of flour and egg) and brownies kukus (steam-baked brownies). Those two are very popular among tourists here.

Tips for shooting (especially food). Try to discover the unique surroundings of the object so the viewer can have an idea of where the picture was taken. Having a person in the frame is always good to bring life to the photo. Also, I love to play with scale: find something that you can compare to the size of what you’re shooting. Most importantly, unique perspective is something that I always try to find when taking pictures. This is true for food photos as well.
