Nasi Tjandoe – UPH Bazaar Week

Bazaar week at Pelita Harapan University, Lippo Karawaci is officially over! Abundant food stalls you can visit are mostly dominated by Indonesian typical culinary traits. To open this day 5 journey, we begin with this cutie-innocent iconic girl food stall selling its signature mixed-rice menus starting from special set menu to complete set menu. Tjandoe (old-spelled Indonesian word) or candu actually means addicted. So, no wonder if this word is chosen as the trademark to make its customers get addicted to it. Both menus look sooooo yummy, but only in special menu will you have half-salted egg. As we do not really like salted egg, eventually we have made up our mind of choosing the complete set menu.



Consisting of white rice, shredded chicken and fish, prickles and prawn chips, this set menu will be a bomb for sure especially for those who are mixed-rice lovers. You know, we are truly enthralled not only by its combination aromas coming out from each dish, but also its simple yet colorful presentation. Though the chicken and fish are spicy, they are the features of our appetite-gaining. Besides, its signature seasoning named tjandoe marinated as the topping – you can choose rendang seasoning as the other option. What startles us at the moment is the seller gives us a plastic glove that is used to mix up the seasoning with the whole dishes – okay this looks a little bit disgusting, but that is what we do LOL.




As this is the first lunchie we get, here comes the scores:

  • Taste: 4 out of 5
  • Price: 4 out of 5
  • Product Satisfaction: 4 out of 5

This menu is an epic success as the opening of our culinary journey on day 5 bazaar week UPH as it is not only delicious but also worth every penny of IDR 25,000,-. We utterly cannot wait to see it at the next bazaar!

  1. The idea of the plastic gloves is so fun, I mean Indonesian food are best eaten all mixed up right LOL! And it does sounds delicious…I would take up their salted egg though, they’re too tempting πŸ˜›


  2. Ha-ha have you tried visiting Padang food stall? The way people eat is also by mixing it all up with bare hand, though. You should try if haven’t! πŸ˜‰
