Bandung Bargun

I love Bandung. Despite its strip mall location, stepping through the door is like a quick trip to Amsterdam. Despite being Madison’s only Indonesian restaurant, the food is always fresh and way out shines much of the genre, too often heavy on meat and over cooked.

For 5 bucks, tax included, they are featuring a pad Thai dinner special with you choice of tofu, chicken or beef ($2 more for shrimp). I always opt for the tofu since it more traditional. Bandung's preparation of the classic rice noodle dish is a little sweeter than the Thai version—more like a barbecue sauce. For $1 extra you can add an order (2) lumpia, Indonesian-style egg rolls.

There are some restrictions. This special price (a $4.95 savings) is only available on Thursday and you need to preorder by 2 p.m. that day—either call 255-6910 or email Cash or check only and pick-up or delivery between 5 and 6 p.m. I can live with that.
