If you go to Bandung and confuse what to have for breakfast, lunch or dinner, just head to Jalan Progo. It used to be famous because Jonas Photo is located there, but now the street is packed with cute restaurants. You can find Japanese, western to Indonesian food on Jalan Progo.
We were looking a restaurant for our brunch on Sunday, and decided to try the newly opened Baso Simponi on Jalan Progo. We parked our car in their small restaurant which has a Honda CB in front of it. From outside it doesn't look like "a warung" that serve noodle and meatballs, instead it looks like a very nice place to hang out with your friends.

Mie Baso is the name for local Bandung's noodle (yup it is written without "k" in Bandung, not "bakso"). When you order Mie Baso, you will get your noodle with the soup, but if you want them to be served separately, than order Yamin Baso.
We ordered Yamin Baso Cicadas ("cicadas"=cincang pedas, spicy one) for IDR 26,000, and the taste was just perfect. It reminds me of the homemade Yamin Baso which I used to have years ago in Bandung. The "baso" taste was original. Love it!

The side dish were also very yummy, Baso Ikan Tenggiri and the Pangsit. It's a must try when you eat at Baso Simponi.
|This was my favorite|
Beside the food, I like the interior as well. Though small, the ambiance of the resto was very relaxing and full of music:D Only one thing to note, when our Kiddos ask the waiter their fave song, "Do you have Sugar Maroon 5?". They didn't have it on their play list:p

Baso Simponi shared place with a resto called "Ngorea" which served Korean Food. We didn't try their Korean food, maybe next time. Yes we will be back to this place.
