Nasi Timbel Spesial IDR 45k
Nasi timbel, ayam panggang rasana/empal, tahu, tempe goreng, jambal roti, sayur asem/lodeh
The rice is wrapped in banana leaf and then grilled to produce a unique aroma into the rice. For this dish, AnakJajan upgraded the chicken with Beef Empal and it was a great choice, the beef was full of flavors and tender, love the way they pair the rice with deep fried Jambal Roti or preserved salted fish, it makes the whole dish tastier.
Ayam Panggang Ala Rasana Sunda IDR 24k
Classic grilled chicken dish that simply cannot go wrong. The seasoning is more on the sweet side, that explains the great caramelization on the chicken from the grilling process. Don’t forget to squeeze abit of lime juice for zesty tangy touch.
Gurame Bumbu Cobek IDR 68k
Deep fried gurame fish topped with freshly made chili condiment. The chili on top is not too spicy, in fact it’s just in the right enjoyable level so it won’t overpower the taste of fish. Just nice!
Kangkung Cabe Ijo (+cumi asin) IDR 20k
This menu has gotta be the highlight of AnakJajan’s visit. It was INSANELY GOOD, AnakJajan are 100% sure that we’re going to order it on the next visit. It’s a unique sauteed Kangkung or water spinach dish with green chili seasoning and topped with deep fried dried squid. One of a kind indeed!
Jengkol Kabita IDR 20k
It’s not easy to find Jengkol dish, but it’s even harder to find a good one. AnakJajan have to admit that the Jengkol dish in Rasana Sunda is a good one, nicely executed with great texture and generous rich seasoning making it a perfect companion for a plate of warm rice.
Karedok IDR 22k
If there’s one certain dish that represent Sundanese cuisine, it has go to be Karedok.

It has just the right proportion of ingredients and sauce, every veggie and salad lover will love it.
Jambal Roti Masak Pete IDR 30k
Jambal roti of preserved salted dish is another typical item to find in Sundanese cuisine. To give it a more flavor, they cook it with pete, chili, and onion which was very savory and enjoyable.
