One of the most famous souvenir from Bandung is these boxes of Bandung brownies. I saw three most famous brand of brownies by Amanda, Kartika Sari and MayaSari. I have tried Amanda and Kartika Sari and prefered Amanda cuz it's less sweet. The expiry date of the cake is five days after production date, but do finish your brownie fast before mold grew on it. But since the stuff was so tasty, people in your office can finish the whole box in a day. They have many flavors too like marble (26,000R), blueberry(26,000R), cheese (39,000R)and strawberry (26,000R) and like, but the best flavor gotta be the original flavor (20,000R)- price quoted from Amanda shop. You can find Amanda brownie by the streets and MayaSari can be purchased from the airport. So grab one or a dozen when you are at Bandung.
Cheese Bagelan by Maya Sari is a must try also. It is sooooo fluffy crunchy and cheesy. 21,000R per box.
PS: the Kartika Sari branch at Jln Dago is a huge shop but the service is no good. There was no line and I waited more than 10 minutes with everyone buzzing beside me. That's why I did not get to taste any brownies made by Kartika Sari.
