By JENNIFER CURRIERPosted October 02, 2018 09:01:13A family of four from Brisbane is on their way to the island of Bali for a holiday this summer.
They’re part of a generation of Australians who grew up with a taste for Indonesian cuisine, which is now a major part of the culture of the region.
Bali, which hosts more than 500,000 people, has a vibrant ethnic food scene and is one of the top destinations for holidaymakers, with the capital Bali Bintang on the island hosting some of the most popular destinations in the world.
Indonesian restaurant and bar chains have been sprouting up in the city, and the trend has been driven by the popularity of a number of popular Indonesian restaurants.
While there are hundreds of restaurants in the capital, Bali, there are only a handful of authentic Indonesian restaurants that can be found.
“It’s not that we can’t be part of this culture and have our own restaurant,” said Muthijeo Thi Ngorimbu, a student at the University of Queensland.
“But the problem is that there are so many restaurants and they don’t have that variety and that experience,” she said.
“We’re lucky to have restaurants like the Bali Bakery and the Banyan Bakery that are open every day and have that experience.”
While Bali has more than 100 restaurants, there aren’t many traditional Indonesian restaurants in other major cities like Brisbane.
Banyan and Bali are two of the oldest and most popular restaurants in Indonesia.
They have a long history, but in recent years, the Bambang Bakery has become increasingly popular and is now home to the world famous Banyang Bambu, which features a deep-fried rice dish, and its famous pineapple dish, which has become a hit with tourists.
“They really take that traditional way of cooking, the style, the ingredients, and they’re all very good,” said Ngorimi.
Bambang has become the most visited Banyangs restaurant in Australia and attracts more than 40,000 tourists each day, and it has also grown its popularity in recent times.
“I feel like we’re living a really beautiful and authentic lifestyle here, and I think that’s really important to a lot of people, and that’s why we do our best to cater to that,” said Ms Thi.
The Banyans Bambangs is a deep fried rice dish that has become popular with tourists in the past few years, but there are many traditional Indonesians and locals who also enjoy the dishes.
“There’s a lot more of that tradition in Banyuang, and there’s not a lot that is new,” said Thi, who is also a member of the Borneo Banyantai.
“So, for us, it’s about being able to take the tradition of the past, and bring it into the present day and bring something different, so that we don’t forget about what we grew up around.”
Bambangs restaurant is open every night, and is open to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays, and on Saturdays.
The family plans to spend three nights in Bali before they head back to Brisbane for another holiday.
“You get a sense of belonging when you go there and it feels like you’re part, you know, of the community,” said Taeh Tjang, a 27-year-old student at Queensland University.
“When I came here a couple of years ago, I thought I’d never be back in Brisbane again.
Now I’m really excited about that.”
