Friday Finday #6: Liwet Pak Asep Stroberi

Friday Finday #6: Liwet Pak Asep Stroberi
January 23, 2015 CuteCoco

Our trip to Garut, West Java, two weeks ago was about finding a good customized leather jacket for husband. The region is indeed among a few of well-known areas for leather production in Indonesia. But I am here today not to talk about the leather and such. Matter of fact I would like to introduce you to my new favorite of Liwet Pak Asep Stroberi.


I shouted the questions on my chat group. A lot of my friends are from West Java. Surely they would know places to eat in Garut. I also put the same question on my personal Facebook. The answer was only one: Liwet Pak Asep Stroberi.


Honestly speaking I was a bit reluctant at first to go there. Stroberi in English means Strawberry and I was not in the mood to eat strawberry for lunch. Fortunately we passed the restaurant on our way to a leather jacket store so upon returning we decided to give it a try.

One word: DELICIOUS!


The restaurant is not a fancy one where you can fine dine. It resembles traditional village with huts made of bamboo circling a big rectangular pool where you are allowed to fish. It’s really a down to earth concept but the food is lovely and tasteful.




We ordered a menu package for 4 people at total amount of IDR 160,000.- (approx USD16). Sugarless hot teas were served automatically. For free. The menu consisted of a big pan of liwet rice, roasted chicken, fried tofu, salted fish and Sundanese salad. The sambal was awesome!




Hell yeah! Liwet Pak Asep Stroberi is going to be one of our destinations whenever we visit Garut again.


Note: Liwet rice probably sounds foreign to you. Wikipedia offers the exact description of it: “a succulent rice dish cooked in coconut milk, chicken broth and spices, from Solo, Central Java, Indonesia”.
