KEUKEN 2016: A One-day Affair for Extraordinary Food Enthusiasts
The 7th installment of KEUKEN witnessed the increasing number of visitors and once again it was held along Ir. Soekarno street, Bandung with lots of vendors of food and beverages. Food enthusiasts have roaming the street to look for the best food and beverage that suit their palette.
There are lots of varieties of food and drinks ranging from snacks (burgers, sushi, hot dogs, fries, and batagor), specialties (Asian food, Nasi Kucing, Sate Klatak), fresh beverages (smoothies, mocktails, juice, coffee), and desserts (sweets, cakes, ice cream). A special table was set for NET TV’s Chef’s Table and hosted by Chef Chandra, he created a special dishes for KEUKEN. He also invited special guests which are Bandung’s mayor, Ridwan Kamil and wife, Atalia Praratya.
Not only food, there were also music provided on Music Stage to accompany visitors to enjoy the vibe until the night comes. There was a little drizzle of rain that somehow affected the event, but the show must go on. So far, people enjoyed the delicacies and also the moment they share together by eating in a public space.
KEUKEN 2016 has successfully brought out the spirit of street food and it educated people about public space, how to maintain it and how to enjoy it without having to trash it. We will definitely look forward to next year’s KEUKEN!
