Travelogue : Padang/Bukittinggi

5:20 PM

Note : Bukittinggi was not a typo *hehehe*

Jam Gadang, Bukittinggi, Indonesia, 2015

Have you ever tasted masakan minang Indonesia? I cannot rave about it enough, they are sooooo goooooooooood. So we went to Padang/Bukittinggi to experience local (authentic Minang/masakan Padang) food 

While me being a city girl (Im not rich, not spoilt but I live in the city all my life), Bukittinggi is never gonna be my choice for a great stay. It looks a lot like Cameron Highland (of course, CH is prettier) but less developed. However the food here is to-die-for!

My first Padang food (masakan Padang) experience was in Bali, and my husband told me it originated in Padang.

Lembah Anai, on our way from Padang to Bukittinggi

Breakfast at the hotel. The chicken porridge (Soto Ayam) tasted soooooo gooooood
