Bandung certainly has no shortage of cake or bread shops, but it can be difficult to find good quality products. Really good bakery products contain only natural ingredients and have a true flavor that doesn’t rely on artificial additives. A really good baker will also know how to cater for special diets such as keto, vegan, or food intolerances. Thanks to the passionate team at Beintema’s, not only can you buy really good bakery products, but you can also learn how to make your own at home. This is great news for anyone with special dietary requirements. You can bake your cake and eat it too!
Recipe for success: great ingredients + expert knowledge + stunning location
The vision for Beintema’s started in the home kitchen of the Dutch/Indonesian Beintema family. They prepared favored Dutch treats and healthy bread for themselves, family, and friends. From items such as the humble rijstevlaai (Dutch pie with creamy rice filling), the product line grew. Before long they also grew their team, started supplying local eateries and eventually opened shop in their own premises.
Come for breakfast or lunch, grab a takeaway or sit and look out over the leafy green streets to the majesty of the blue mountains in the distance. Take your time and choose from the range of Dutch specialties, western favorites and local flavors. There is a range of sandwiches, burgers, soups, pasta, salads, and pastries on the menu. Coffee and many other beverages are also on offer. From 11 am (12 on Sunday) you can order a pizza, freshly made and cooked in their wood-smoke pizza oven. There’s also ice-cream, sweets, bread and other interesting produce inside the shop for you to take home. Beintema’s choose the best ingredients, whether local or imported, to ensure that their products are both delicious and really good for you. If you’re gluten or dairy intolerant, vegan or on an eating plan, get in touch with Beintema’s to find out what they have for you.
The down-low on sourdough
Sourdough bread is much more nutritious than regular bread – read more here. For those of us who aim to reduce sugar and artificial additives, it’s is definitely the best choice. Wholemeal or wholegrain bread is also a better option than white bread. Beintema’s bake really good sourdough and wholemeal bread, both of which can be difficult to find here in Bandung. You can order Beintema’s bread and other products to be delivered to your home or workplace.
Bake your cake and eat it too
Not satisfied with just preparing really good food for you, the Beintema’s crew have teamed up with Ragi cooking school to plan a series of cooking and baking classes. You can learn how to make really good bread, pizzas, pies, cakes, and other fares. Attendees will learn how to make sweet treats like cakes and pies, with no gluten, eggs or dairy. Check out Ragi’s website and follow R&B Baking and Cooking on Instagram for details of future classes. If you remain happy to leave the baking and cooking to the masters, drop in or contact Beintema’s for details on home delivery.
