Braga Street, Bandung Overview

Jalan Braga or Braga Street is an eclectic mix of both bohemian and traditional influences which earned Bandung the nickname- the 'Paris of Java'. Braga Street may be small in size, but it is overflowing with character and history. Once a major shopping centre for Dutch colonial aristocrats, this tiny street is what gave Bandung its nickname of Parijs Van Java (The Paris Of Java). Now, it is home to a number of cafes, jazz bars, upscale restaurants, and bakeries, that give Braga Street its distinct flavour.

The late 19th century saw a theatre and drama group named the Tooneel Braga became a mainstay of the south end of the promenade and gave the street its eponymous name. Music is a part of Jalan Braga's heritage and tourists can expect to see buskers at every street corner, and bar musicians performing classic rock songs. Various street stalls are also tucked into some pockets of Braga Street. A speciality of this district is the bubur ayam (chicken porridge), which is by far among some of the best street food to be found in Bandung.
