Setiabudhi Supermarket
by: Emma Kwee
 

Burned out from spicy Padang food? Nasi goreng is getting boring? Longing for the convenience and variety that your home country has on offer? Sethiabudi supermarket will provide you with the antidote. It's the one and only place in Bandung that has a large range of products that you might find at the shelves of your local supermarket, all imported to satisfy the nostalgic expat or the yearning traveler.

Located on Jl. Setiabudhi no. 46, it is unusually large for an Indonesian supermarket and offers an eclectic hodgepodge of Italian pasta sauces, French crepes, Indian curries and Dutch milk. Prices are higher than at your average warung , but that only makes sense because most of the products there are imported, thus the original thing rather than Indonesian versions of.

There's also a well-stocked fresh fruits and vegetables department that provides more Western style veggies such as cauliflower, broccoli and leeks and even a mushroom section and nuts. Also interesting is the small selection of French cheeses that contains smelly favorites such as camembert and brie . The meat department stocks rare to find hams and sausages, steaks and spare ribs, albeit costly, it makes pork butts and taters no longer a lucid dream.

At the second section a non-food department store provides all things needed to make your home cluttered Western style instead of (forced) minimalist Indonesian style. One important product to highlight here are coffee filters, which are non existent in any other Indonesian store, they might even sell coffee machines, for filters you'd have to use your DIY skills to fabricate one out of paper towels or toilet paper.

If you find yourself craving for a certain snack, let's say a German Bratwurst, or some original maple syrup to go with your home cooked escargots phone 022-2035000 and check if Setiabudhi supermarket has it in stock. If they don't, nobody does and it saves you a whole lot of time looking around.
