While the heart of Sundanese culture is just two hours away from Jakarta, in the blessedly cool city of Bandung, serving its cuisine in the capital is Ikan Bakar Cianjur, a popular restaurant tucked behind bamboo and palm trees. The Sundanese are masters at basting and grilling, and this place excels at both grilled nila fish, silky-moist inside and lightly crispy outside, and an addictively sweet barbecue chicken. Also try the keredok, a Sundanese salad of mixed veggies in a peanut dressing. The restaurant attracts hordes of regulars and is necessarily expansive, with large windows, high ceilings and big tables for groups.
