One opportunity not to be missed every time we visit Bandung tastes new restaurant/cafe scattered throughout the city of Bandung. This time … I, hubby and the kids visited one of the restaurants on Jl. Progo, namely Giggle Box. Actually Giggle Box had stood since two years ago and still managed under the same group with Jonas Photo. This two-story restaurant is designed in shabby chic style and homey nuance. Giggle Box is dominated with furniture made of rattan and wood painted mostly white and pastel-colored sofas. At the corner back of the restaurant walls are wallpaper that shaped as jumbo size old newspaper print-out. It made the room seem unique and interesting. In some parts of the walls are decorated with unique frames and photo accessories of famous celebrities’ relic.
Giggle offers a wide range menu of Western and Indonesian food at affordable prices. Selection of drinks and desserts are also varied so it makes this restaurant an ideal place to get together with bunch of friends. That day we’ve ordered:
Cheese Burger (25k) – Warm bun with beef patty topped with melted cheese and salad. It tastes not bad although not that special either.
Fish Lemon Butter (35k) – crispy fried fish served with fresh salad, French fries, and drizzle of lemon butter sauce. The portion was quite huge. The fried fish taste great and perfectly seasoned. I love the freshness of the lemon sauce, nice.
Grape smoothies (15k) and Lychee smoothies (15k) – We love the smoothies! The texture was rich and creamy, yummy.
We’ve also ordered Nasi Goreng Sosis (19k) that day for my daughter (sorry no pic), however we didn’t really satisfied with the outcome. The fried rice was too oily for our liking.
Overall… Giggle Box is a really great place for hang-outs and rendezvous!
