Indulging The Sumptuous Indian Cuisines in K99 Curry House Bandung

Indulging The Sumptuous Indian Cuisines in K99 Curry House Bandung

Ever since my iconic two years adventure in India some 10 years ago ended, there is nothing about the country has left me for good. It has been a forever bonding that I will always treasure wherever I am. Certainly it’s not about the actors, nor the movie, nor the fact that the adventure gave me another ex-boyfriend. But the overall story of me being there never fails to amuse me and the other person who would hear the story again from my lips.

I have come to believe that I can survive anywhere else knowing that I have survived India. And what was the thing I hated so much back then has become things I adore so much now.

Green chili pickle for instance. When I first met this weird greenish thing in the menu of the hotel cafeteria in New Delhi, I wanted to puke. It tasted so yuk I barely held it up for a second longer. Ironically, after that first unimpressive encounter, I had to experience the dish over and over again that suddenly it didn’t taste so bad anymore. Suddenly, the taste became so good. One day I found myself longing for it. I have become addicted to green chili pickle! You put a spoon in my plate and I won’t stop eating, I tell you.

Indian food.

Not many like it. At least not here in Indonesia. The search for a company to come with me for a sumptuous treat of Indian food is a struggle. Even J is not a fan. I have to drag him to join me to satiate my palate over Indian menus.

The fact that many people here love Indian actors but dislike the food is beyond my comprehension. But maybe it’s because actors are more easy in the eyes..


K99 Curry House finally caught my eyes. It has been there all this time, in my route to the kids school and I only saw it few weeks ago. It is located on a roundabout from Wastukancana street, on your left corner before entering Cipaganti street.

For a week long I gave enough announcement to J that I really..really..really want to eat there. I really..really..really miss Indian food. I wasn’t going to take no for an answer.

J gave in.

In a drizzling afternoon we sat and sank our teeth in the sumptuous Indian dishes.

My palate danced a victory dance as I digested the richly Rhogan Josh enjoyed with slices of garlic naan (and soon to follow was butter naan). Mutton biryani was added to my delight and of course I won’t be having these courses without my all time favorite mix veggies Raitaa.

J ordered Indian chai. A milk tea Indian style with a dash of masala powder.

Here's how you have it: Mix raitaa with your biryani. A little drop at a time. Yum!

The K99 Curry House offers so many menu items I have planned to come back for more. I have yet to taste their Dosas, Pakoras, Aloo Paratha and more.

Do you like Indian food? Tell me your favorite dish!

    My husband would have joined you for sure!
    I, on the other hand, would give it a miss. I’m not a fan of the spices of Indian food, though I do like things hot.

    That chai looks fabulous!

    Thanks for sharing! Visiting from the Blog Fair Link Party.

  8. Oh I’m just sitting here reading, and drinking my Chai! I get so frustrated at the people in my city who buy from the crappy, but quick, Indian takeaway. They never seem to know about the most authentic and delicious one in the city, Surtaj. My husband said it is just like India. I’m sure you’d have some great stories to swap!
