Meet again with Nona Icip in Bandung culinary review. This time, special for Haphapers who like Chinese food or suki. This suki and Chinese food eating places is located at Jl. Progo No 13A, Bandung, Fat Panda. A couple months ago, when passing progo area, actually Nona has been curious about this eating place. Maybe because the decoration is full of Panda pictures and dominated by red color. So it makes people curious and interested to come in.
If looked from outside, this suki place looks small. But when Haphapers come in, you’ll see that the places is quite wide and could accommodate quite a lot visitors. The decoration is very festal, dominated with red, the wall is full of panda pictures. At glance, it reminds Nona to Kung Fu Panda cartoon.
The interior is using Chinese style, with simple wood tables and chairs. Some typical Chinese ornaments are also put in the corners. The service is good, when we arrive, Haphapers will be welcomed by a waiter who will usher to the table that Haphapers has been chose.
There are many menu choices. Divide into a couple category like noodle, fried rice, vegetable dishes, squid dishes, prawn dishes, suki, soup and many more. Each category consist of a few choices. Because of this restaurant emphasize the suki menu, therefore Nona Icip order suki.
Enoki Mushroom, Imported Beef and Lobster Ball were the menu that Nona Icip order/ The portion is standard, not so different with others suki eating places. For the soup, there are two choices, chicken broth or tom yam. Nona Icip chose chicken broth soup.
For the taste, it’s ordinary, there isn’t something special. Because of Nona Icip ordered imported beef, the chicken broth soup become tasteless and replaceable to strong beef broth. The MSG is too much in the soup, even when it eatne with rice, the msg still taste very strong. When eat it, it makes the throat dry and quickly thirsty.
The suki menus is well saved so it still fill fresh. If compare with the taste, the price is a bit high. The price of the lobster ball is IDR 26.000, Enoki Mushroom IDR 16.500, Imported Beef IDR 25.000 and rice IDR 8.000/portion.
Overall, this suki place is very interesting to visit. Especially for haphapers who want to enjoy food while chit chat with friends or couple. The place is nice and comfortable for hanging out. But for the suki taste, it’s not as special as others suki places in Bandung.
One excellence from Fat Panda is the many menu choices. So if you have try some menu and fill it doesn’t that satisfying, Haphapers could be curious to come back to try another menu offered.
Weel, although Nona first time eating experience here is not so satisfying (from the taste), but Nona Icip still want to come back to try the other menu. What about you, Haphapers, have you ever been to Fat Panda?
