Bandung's Nutty Bar Worth Seeking Out


Bandung and Nutty Bar co-owner Julie Adriansjach

Nothing beats a venue that offers cheap, delicious late-night eats, cocktails, beer, comfy couches, local art, karaoke, trivia night and live music. Impossible to find? Not so! The Nutty Bar is nestled adjacent to Bandung, Madison’s only Indonesian restaurant, and it offers all of that, and more. The cheap eats menu includes their delicious chicken wings at 75 cents each, or their famous pad Thai and Indo Mac n Cheese for under $6. Pair your food with one of their delicious cocktails; try the Nutty Coconut, the bar’s house cocktail, or the Long Island Thai Tea, my personal fave.

About This Blog

Writing has always provided an anchor for my passions, which focus deeply on food, dance, environmental conservation and culture. I grew up “helping” my dad cultivate a prolific garden that produced too many radishes and watching my mom make almost all of our food from scratch, including horehound candy. Meanwhile I took my first African dance class in high school, which ignited my continuing quest to travel to West Africa, via Europe and South America, to study dance.

Through my travels, I learned that we are all connected by food, and our basic need to eat. Since moving to Madison in 1998 to pursue degrees in conservation biology and dance, I have developed an appreciation for the richness of our local food community, and a great desire to share it with others. What started as a personal food blog, A World of Flavors, has since grown into a business teaching cooking classes and leading local and international food tours.

I look forward to sharing culinary adventures with you through my Madison Magazine blog Local Flavor and monthly Dining In recipe column.
