The food that you eat can taste a million times better when in the presence of those closest to you. The act of dining with your loved ones is imprinted in our culture and has become a platform to share special moments and happiness. Here are a few restaurants specializing in local delicacies where you can take your family and have a great time.

1. Talaga Sampireun
The place is really huge and still really clean, neat and organized. You will super fond of how they still put the "green" here and there to keep the place looking earthy as well as alive! There are cottages available and for the cottage seating, the minimum payment condition will be applied to the costumers, but since it's the coziest, most relaxing and also private area to dine in, you might want to consider.

The fresh seafood serves in Talaga Sampireun are all self-breed, they have their own fish breeding pond as well as for the prawns, squids and many others. They wanted to keep the ingredients and the food as fresh as possible and that's why they're still applying the conventional processes starting from the breeding, cleaning to the cooking but still with a little sophisticated touch here and there.

Nasi Liwet at Talaga Sampireun is so delicious and since most Sundanese food protein sources are seafood, chickens, and soybeans products, Nasi Liwet is just the perfect companion to them. This one is a decent example of Nasi Liwet and you should have this on your visit here.
