Chicken Congee

The Chicken Congee is almost anywhere in Bandung. So, the real challenge here is – where exactly is the best Chicken Congee in Bandung? 

Here, in Lembang, West Bandung Regency, we tasted the best chicken congee stall that serves a pretty big portion and tastes absolutely amazing. The congee has a thick consistency with shredded chicken, boiled eggs, chicken hearts and gizzards as toppings as well as some fried onions as garnishing. The Chicken Congee is served hot which feels absolutely amazing for breakfast. At IDR 12,000, the Chicken Congee is served with free crackers and hot tea.

Note: The locals here commonly call the stall Bubur Ayam SMP 1 Lembang. Bubur Ayam SMP 1 Lembang means Chicken Congee in 1st Lembang Junior High School (the stall is located in front of the school)

First of all, Petis is a traditional food seasoning in Indonesia. Petis is processed by fish or shrimp cooked until it is completely dry. It is then added with salt and brown sugar so that it tastes rather sweet.

In a plate of Kupat Tahu Petis, you will find fried tofu in charcoal and cut into small pieces, added with bean sprouts, rice cake, crushed yellow crackers, and petis. The dish is served with peanut sauce. While Kupat Tahu Sayur is similar but it is served with broth instead of the peanut sauce.

You only need to pay IDR 17,000 for each plate of Kupat Tahu Petis or Kupat Tahu Sayur.
