My last venture to Bandung was a fruitful one. As you might have read, with four of my accolades, including Reza Prabowo, a local Bandung citizen in our group, we savoured 6 places in a day. After Toko You, Kopi Selasar, Roti Gempol, and a few others we finally stop at Nasi Campur 88 Cibadak for supper.
The popularity of Nasi Campur 88 Cibadak has very well built up over the years to the point that you have to wait at least 30-minutes to get your order ready.
The queue is so long, the Sekoteng stall next to it is almost like the unofficial snack while you wait for your nasi campur.
Added to that the pain to find parking spot here, the question is: “Does Nasi Campur 88 really worth all the drama?”
The answer is: Not. If there’s a fan here I’m sorry to disagree with you. After all taste is personal. Not that Nasi Campur 88 is crap. I really enjoyed their crispy pork, but for the rest of the topping, especially Chasiew I believe I’ve tasted better. Way better.
Now that’s taken care of, the next question would be: “Should I try Nasi Campur 88?”
I’m gonna answer: Yes! Definitely. For the sake of curiosity, you should at least try once and see why crowd are piling over this stall. After that, decide to yourself whether it deserve a second visit. I hope you have a better experience than me though. As for me, once is enough.
Now, what I would really recommend are these food place in Bandung that scores 8 and above. Have a read here.
