Indonesian street food is a joy that can be enjoyed anywhere in this country wherever there are hungry people and a street corner lined with carts.

However, some places are more renowned for their street food scene than others; Bandung, located in the highlands of West Java, is a city that is well-known among Indonesians for its high quality carts.

Located within a few hours of the massive city of Jakarta, hotels fill up here very quickly on weekends, so it is important that you book ahead using web sites such as traveloka.com.
